Forest Woods –the most highly-anticipated condominium in Serangoon Central, just a five-minute walk to Serangoon MRT interchange, bus interchange, and Nex Shopping Mall

Singapore, 29 September 2016 – Forest Woods (森涛苑) by City Developments Limited (CDL) and joint venture partners, Hong Leong Holdings Limited and TID Pte Ltd, has received keen interest since its show flat preview began on 24 September. There were strong enquiries for this highly-anticipated new condominium in Serangoon Central which is expected to be launched next week. The project has an excellent location at Lorong Lew Lian, at the intersection of Upper Serangoon Road and Upper Paya Lebar Road, a mere five-minute stroll to the Serangoon Mass Rapid Transit (MRT) Interchange, which connects to the North- East and Circle Lines, Serangoon bus interchange and Nex Shopping Mall.

Mr Chia Ngiang Hong, CDL Group General Manager said, “For a few years, no project of this size was launched in the much sought-after Serangoon Central area. We have received strong interest for this highly-anticipated launch as Forest Woods comes across as a compelling purchase for new home buyers, upgraders and investors. It has an extremely prime location in a mature estate, very near the Serangoon MRT Interchange, bus interchange and Nex Shopping Mall, with easy access to amenities, expressways and many schools. Forest Woods also offers great value at attractive pricing, and several unique facilities. We expect a good take-up when sales commence.”

Compelling purchase with great value at attractive pricing

Forest Woods comprises seven 12-storey blocks, most of which are within the one-kilometre radius of Paya Lebar Methodist Girls’ School (Primary) and Yangzheng Primary School, making it a major draw for families with children. Other schools in the vicinity include: Cedar Primary School, CHIJ Our Lady of Good Counsel, Maris Stella High School, St. Gabriel's Primary School, St. Gabriel's Secondary School, Stamford American International School, Xinghua Primary School, Zhonghua Primary School and Zhonghua Secondary School.

The project offers one-bedroom with study to four-bedroom apartments, and single-storey five-bedroom penthouses. Unit sizes range from 506 square feet (sq ft) for a one-bedroom with study to 2,185 sq ft for the largest penthouse unit. Apartments are attractively priced from S$688,000 for a one-bedroom with study unit, S$838,000 for a two-bedroom, S$1.1 million for a three-bedroom, and S$1.65 million for a four-bedroom.

Mr Mohamed Ismail Gafoor, Chief Executive Officer of PropNex Realty, one of the marketing agents for Forest Woods, said, “Land has always been a scarcity in Singapore, and a site with such attractive attributes as Forest Woods’ is even more rare. The site tender in 2015 was very hotlycontested with CDL and its joint venture partners outbidding more than 10 other developers. A stone's throw away from Serangoon MRT Interchange, Forest Woods is also flanked by an airconditioned bus interchange and Nex Shopping Mall, one of the largest shopping malls in the North-East corridor. With its unique offerings and attractive pricing, it is no surprise that Forest Woods has received strong interest."

Nestled within Forest Woods’ lushly landscaped sanctuary is a plethora of over 60 facilities, including a 75-metre pool, and a Welcome Lobby with a Wi-Fi Lounge and fee-based Residential Services such as dry cleaning and laundry, housekeeping, private chef, party and event management, personal trainers and pet care services, among others.

There is a 150-metre Adventure Zone where children can zip through the air on the Flying Fox, splash around and cool down at the Kids’ Pool or Play Slide.

Residents can also partake in leisure activities at four more Recreation Pods – BBQ Party Pod, Teppanyaki Dining Pod, Urban Farming Pod and Pets’ Play Pod.
