It's always exciting whenever we hear that GuocoLand is launching a new project. Property hunters will stay tune to the announcement of the launching date, pricing etc. Being a local developer that has delivered many upscale & awesome projects, they have indeed established the name for themselves.
The Avenir, which means “the future” in English is their very latest project at River Valley Close. The site to-date is nonetheless the second biggest en bloc deal in Singapore (the first being Farrer Court in 2007 by Capitaland). The site is where the former Pacific Mansion
Sits on a land size of approximately 130,000 square feet, The Avenir is one of the three new developments in the enclave of River Valley Close. 99 years Martin Modern was launched for sale in July 2017 & Riviere (former Zouk) in May 2019. In case you do not know, Martin Modern is also a project by Guocoland.
These 3 new developments will obtain Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) one after another in the next couple of years time. The Avenir being the latest launch will be the last one to TOP.
When Martin Modern & Riviere TOP, these two projects will inject convenience, vibrancy & transformation into this area. Riviere is a mixed development with serviced residence component & retails on the ground floor fronting the river. Residents of The Avenir can enjoy the convenience of getting daily grocery supplies in a couple of minutes time. If we could envisage the transformation that is going to shape along the river & its vicinity, we will be able to comprehend the value of staying at The Avenir.
As saying goes ‘Value is what you get, price is what you pay’. When you procure a unit in The Avenir, you don’t only pay the price for a unit, but the intangible values as well!!

The Quayside at Robertson Quay is a perfect go-to place for anyone looking for a combination of dining and drinking al fresco around the Singapore Riverside. The wide array of restaurants at The Quayside will keep you coming back for more. Main draws here range from Wolfgang's Steakhouse Singapore to the popular smokehouse Decker Barbecue, as well as the trendy Mexican establishment Super Loco and the stylish Les Bouchons Rive Gauche bistro and steakhouse.

The upcoming Great World City MRT Station (TEL15) contributes a significant value-added to The Avenir. It’s just 470m or 5 minutes walk from your home. And the MRT underpass will link the residents to Great World in minutes.
Besides MRT Stations, The Avenir is also located in very close proximity to major expressways, which provide convenient access to entire Singapore. Central Expressway (CTE) is only 3 minutes drive away, which connects to Pan Island Expressway (PIE), Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE) & East Coast Parkway (ECP). Driving to any part of Singapore is a breeze.
The Singapore River Planning Area is envisioned to be an exciting activity corridor that capitalises on the river frontage and reflects its unique historic character. It stretches 3km long and has three distinctive subzones, namely Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, and Robertson Quay. A tree-lined pedestrian promenade and bridges have been implemented along both banks of the river, connecting the three quays and enhancing the pedestrian friendliness along the river corridor.
The Boat Quay subzone is predominantly zoned for Commercial uses due to its proximity to the Central Business District. There are two conservation areas in this subzone, i.e. the Boat Quay Conservation Area, which is a key historic district with over 100 artfully conserved shophouses, and the Upper Circular Road Conservation Area, which is a secondary settlement with buildings of mainly Modern and Art Deco architectural styles.
The Clarke Quay subzone has a mix of Commercial, Hotel and Residential uses. Consisting of mainly conserved warehouses, the Clarke Quay Conservation Area offers many entertainment and lifestyle options, while the Magazine Road Conservation Area has a good cluster of conserved and new buildings for mixed-use developments.
The Robertson Quay subzone, located at the upstream portion of the river, has a mix of different uses, including waterfront residences and hotels. Arts-related facilities housed in the conserved buildings help to further diversify the offerings. Separately in November 2019, property heavyweights City Development Limited, Capitaland & Ascott Residence Trust (Ascott Reit) announced the redevelopment of the Liang Court site into an integrated development with 700 residential apartments.
The proposed integrated development will be directly linked to Fort Canning MRT station and also include a commercial component, a hotel and a serviced residence with a hotel licence. Timely rejuvenation of mature assets will complement the revitalisation of the Singapore River planning area.
This is expected to generate social activities around the proposed integrated development, increase footfall and improve pedestrian accessibility along the Singapore River. With so many upcoming developments in this area, wouldn't the properties along Singapore River will be very much enhanced & preserved? And The Avenir is part of the Singapore River rejuvenation!!!
