The Avenir is a freehold condo situated along River Valley Close, overlooking Orchard Road at one end and the Singapore River on the other. As a result, all apartments will have great views. With its 2 mocha coloured towers rising up to 36 storeys, this condo is definitely instantly recognizable.
What makes The Avenir attractive is the fact that it is one of very few freehold land in District 9. In addition, it’s large ground, spanning almost 130000 sq ft, allows the architect, ADDP, a very large canvas on which to design the condo. To this end, they have done well. There is generous use of greenery throughout the estate, and with the vertical lines of the exterior of the building in woody brown, it makes you feel like you are entering a magical forest that opens into secret pools and pavilions. Whats more, on the 36th storey rooftops, you can chill at any of the 7 lounges and take in the sunset or see the Singapore River meander its way to the sea. Gorgeous.
The Avenir is very stylish, as you can imagine. Apartments are built larger than most with the 1 bedrooms starting at 527 sq ft. Furthermore, all windows extend from floor to ceiling, allowing lots of light and spectacular views into the room. That’s not all, these apartments also come with high ceiling and are fitted to the hilt with high quality, durable appliances. All to provide you with a comfortable and, luxurious home to return to. For those who do not drive, the Great World MRT Station of the Thomson East Coast Line is just around the corner, so you will find living at the Avenir to be very convenient as well.
We all know River Valley to be a district with swanky condominiums that compete with one another to be prettier, taller and more exclusive. In fact, since its early days, River Valley was favoured by European and Chinese merchants for its proximity to the Singapore river and the fact that, despite its name, sits on higher ground near the river. They liked how close it was to their trading port but yet away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Today, what makes River Valley attractive is the fact that while it is primarily a residential district, it is surrounded by some of Singapore’s best shopping and nightlife venues. Choose the laid back Robertson Quay where you can chill over fine wine after a theatre performance or dine and dance the night away in the vibrant Clark Quay. Alternative, put on your running shoes or take your bicycle and follow the river to the bay and beyond.
