The Florence Residences – 99 years leasehold residential project in North-East Region of Singapore, Hougang. Built on the former site of Florence Regency, Florence Residences includes a large land site and will house approximately 1410 residential units. With a vast land size of 389,236sqft, and an incredible 128 Condominium Facilities, this development exudes relaxing and enjoyable lifestyle.
The The Florence Residences is a massive development with well over 1400 units, easily one the largest in Hougang estate. The advantages of high-volume developments is the fact communal space is large and facilities are readily available. Among the selling points for The Florence Residences will be the Club-Condo concept with unique facilities like Amphitheatre with Outdoor Movie Screening, Sparring Ring Pavilion with Punch Bag Corner, Pool Table with Dart Board Pavilion. This project suits buyers who enjoy the recreational club lifestyle as there will be classes and workshops conducted in the development. I would reccomend this to HDB upgraders who live in Hougang/Kovan area since the entry price is relatively lower when compared with recent launches.
Florence Residences is within proximity to Kovan, an active neighbourhood comprising a bowling centre,Heartland Mall, great food including popular Ponggol Nasi Lemak and Lola’s Café, and never forgetting Kovan MRT which can be an 8 minute leave. Besides Kovan, Florence Residences is additionally near Hougang Central, the heart of Hougang Estate. Increasing existing amenities which includes Hougang Mall and Bus Interchange is the recently announced Cross Island Line (CRL) that can transform the current Hougang MRT into a Interchange by 2029. The great thing is that CRL interchange stations(near Hougang Polyclinic) is a mere 6-minute walk at home.
Good and reputable schools can also be aplenty within 1km for youngsters to study and live near. This project comes with a whopping 128 condo facilities with 12 clubs as well as a 2-year complimentary classes and workshops within the condo. Residents can also tap on to concierge service and 24/7 Parcel Collection Corner based on their requirements.. Surrounded by mainly landed housing and facing Hougang Stadium, residents can get to experience a great 270-degree unblocked views.
The Florence Residences is positioned along Hougang Ave 2 and Florence Road. It is far from really practical just to walk to MRT because it would take about 14-15minutes. Along Florence Road is generally landed housing there are not many shops or dining options close by. It is alongside Serangoon Junior College. Nearby several well-known schools – Hougang estate has long been house to many good schools. The Florence residences is in the center of such exemplary schools like Rosyth School, Xinmin Pri School, CHIJ, Monfont Junior and many others which can be also well received according to most Singaporean parents.
On the south from the Florence Residences is Kovan, a mix neighbourhood of private and public housing separated Upper Serangoon Road. Kovan is served mainly by Kovan City, which has a wet market/hawker centre, 2 major supermarkets, Heartland Mall and many HDB shophouses. Hobbyists may also find plant nurseries and bowling centre at Kovan City, and Kovan Sports Centre a wtqmuy location to spend their weekend afternoons.
Be spoilt for choice with food options. Kovan has not only fast food outlets McDonald’s and KFC, but in addition a wide variety of traditional and modern delights. Kovan City itself sees popular hipster café Hatter Street and Thai BBQ 888 Mokata setting outlets there, while closer to Florence Residences, along Upper Serangoon Road, sees dinner/supper haunts including Teochew porridge stalls, curry rice and the famous Ponggol Nasi Lemak.
Northwards in Hougang Central, you can enjoy even more amenities, beginning with Hougang Sports Complex throughout the road at Hougang Avenue 10. Hougang Polyclinic is also conveniently located further down the same road. The key Hougang Central is definitely served by way of a network of transportation: bus interchange, NEL and also the future CRL. If shopping at Heartland Mall has limited options as a result of size, then heading either direction to Hougang Mall or Nex @ Serangoon will complete your shopping experience.
