D’Leedon among top winners at FIABCI S’pore

This year’s FIABCI Singapore Property Award saw d’Leedon and Twentyone Angullia Park win in the Residential (High-Rise) category, while Senibong Cove clinched an award in the Master Plan and Environmental category.

Developed by CapitaLand, d’Leedon is Singapore’s largest private residential development, designed by renowned architect Zaha Hadid. Located in prime district 10, the 36-storey condominium project features 1,703 apartments, as well as 12 exclusive semi-detached houses.

Offering unobstructed views of the skyline, the development enjoys an excellent location, given its proximity to reputable schools, Dempsey Hill, Holland Village, Orchard Road and the Botanic Gardens.

“We are pleased that CapitaLand’s residential development, d’Leedon, has won a Residential (High-Rise) award at the FIABCI Singapore Property Awards 2015 for all-rounded excellence in architectural design, construction, marketing and contribution to sustainability and community,” said Wen Khai Meng, CEO of CapitaLand Singapore.

“With this award, d’Leedon will qualify for the prestigious FIABCI (The International Real Estate Federation) Prix d’Excellence Awards 2016, which recognise developments that are a cut above the rest in the global real estate sector.”

Another winner was freehold luxury development Twentyone Angullia Park, developed by Anguilla Development Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of China Sonangol Land.

The 36-storey building is situated at the junction of Orchard Boulevard and Paterson Road. Green Mark-certified under BCA requirements, the development features a total of 54 exclusive residences and penthouses. It secured its Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) in April 2014, and is currently ready for occupation.

Senibong Cove, on the other hand, is developed by Front Concept Sdn Bhd, the Malaysian subsidiary of Australia’s Walker Corporation. Located in the Iskandar Development Region in Johor, the master-planned development spans 208 acres and features different precincts to cater to various residential needs, including apartments, semi-detached houses, and waterfront villas.

Inspired by some of Walker Corporation’s most successful Australian waterfront projects, homes within the development are designed with quintessential tropical features like large roof overhangs, sun-shades, canopies and balconies over the canal, which provide usable outdoor spaces.

“As part of Walker Corporation, we have a longstanding heritage of large-scale developments spanning residential, retail, industrial and commercial, in Australia and globally,” said Quay Chew Keong, Project Director at Senibong Cove.

“To be honoured at FIABCI is a strong validation of our good work, and we will continue to enhance Senibong Cove to best benefit our residents and the community-at-large.”
