Situated along the well-known Jiak Kim Street, formerly home to the iconic Zouk club for more than 25 years before they closed their doors in late 2016 and reopened at Clarke Quay. The World no. 3 Club on the DJ Mag Top 100 was occupying a prime land parcel with premium waterfront view of Singapore River, while having direct access to the beautiful river promenade that leads you to a myriad of retail, dining and entertainment options.
Due to the highly nostalgia factor the site offers, it generated a lot of keen interest among major developers in 2017. Frasers Property Limited, having been renamed from the former Frasers Centrepoint Limited in 2018, is one of the largest real estate firm in Singapore. They managed to trump nine others and emerged as the sole winning bidder with a staggering price tag of S$955.4 million, working out to approximately S$1,733 per square foot per plot ratio for this exclusive prime land.
The upcoming Riviere is a mixed-use development standing prominently within the heart of Robertson Quay precinct. Set by the bank of the river, it overlooks the city skyline and an almost 180-degree riverfront view. Residents will be able to soak into the stunning sunsets reflected from the city landscape while admiring the breath-taking waterfront view at home.
It will be launched in the first half of 2019 by Frasers and Riviere Singapore will house 455 units of awe-inspiring homes. With the strong heritage recognition here, the three existing conservation warehouses built in 1919 will be tastefully refurbished and integrated within the development.
On top of having a commercial component on the 1st storey of this mixed-use development, Frasers Hospitality will also be accommodating their luxurious Serviced Apartments within the site, allowing future residents with the privilege of accessing the 24/7 concierge services.
Riviere condo is not simply a private real estate in Prime District 9, it is also strategically positioned on a special site that offers great accessibility to the Business Districts and Orchard Road Shopping District. Within a very short walking distance alone, residents would be able to access 2 major train stations such as Great World and Havelock operating on the Thomson East-Coast line (TEL) that promises to transport you from the City and beyond in a much shorter time frame.
If this is not a trophy development, what is?
