The large scale property comprises nine 24-storey blocks of 1,840 flat units and 22 strata terrace units, with one side of the property directly facing Kent Ridge Park and another side facing the Singapore Science Park One. The site is strategically positioned between several recreational spots in the area, with wide spanning panoramic views reaching all the way to the sea.
Taking advantage of the nearby parks and stunning natural landscapes in the area, the property was designed to flow with the surrounding greenery, with tall residential towers meant to look like trees, to be admired even from a far distance. The developers also made sure to maximise on the internal landscape by keeping the development’s site coverage to a minimum so that residents can truly feel one with nature.
Kingsford Huray Development Pte Ltd was first incorporated in 2017 as an exempt private subsidiary of Kingsford Development Pte Ltd, which itself is a subsidiary of Kingsford Group focussing on the Singapore residential market. With the mission to produce top quality homes and provide customer service of equal excellence, Kingsford hopes to be a reputable and beneficial force in real estate and to the community at large.
Their first dip into the local property market was with Kingsford Hillview Peak, an apartment complex comprising three blocks and 512 units, located at Hillview Rise. They, then, quickly moved on to Kingsford Waterbay, a 1,165-unit residential development in Upper Serangoon View, made up of condominiums, strata terraces, semi-detached units, and a commercial block.
Normanton Park is their third foray into the local residential scene and is set to be the most impressive of the lot.
The facilities within Normanton Park were thoughtfully curated to provide recreation and relaxation for people of all ages and stages of life, with sections built specifically for wellness, socialising, family bonding, or even romance!
A look at the site plan shows the facilities split up into three main themes: Tranquility, Vitality and Sensory. Those under Tranquility, such as their Lantern Pavilion, Dining by the Woods, Oasis Pavilion and Waterfront Lawn, gives residents an opportunity to rest, unwind, and shake off the stresses of day-to-day life.
The Vitality facilities, including a Botanical Outdoor Fitness corner, Infinity Deck, Yoga Lawn and Putting Green, puts your health first with various options to suit your preferred mode of fitness and wellness.
Facilities under their Sensory section, like their Hammock Garden, Amazon Island, Bamboo Grove and Firefly Garden, offer a rare opportunity to experience the best of Singapore’s lush greenery, beautifully embedded into the property’s architectural ecosystem.
The development also boasts a commercial block that will feature retail stores, restaurants and an open plaza, giving residents almost no reason to ever have to leave the estate.
The Kent Ridge area is considerably unique in Singapore, with its deep immersion and appreciation of nature’s creations. Right beside the Normanton Park site is Kent Ridge Park, a 47-hectare park with strong historical roots, being the site of one of the last World War II era battles in Singapore. Right along its other side is the Singapore Science Park One, where the best of the republic’s research, development and technological advancements are cultivated.
Normanton Park was strategically designed to provide easy accessibility to the Ayer Rajah Expressway. For non-drivers, the Kent Ridge MRT Station is just down the road, which residents can travel to using the convenient shuttle bus service located right outside the Normanton Park doorways. Taking the Kent Ridge MRT along the Circle Line is a quick and convenient way to get to most of Singapore’s central areas. Otherwise, the Queenstown and Raffles Place MRT Stations are also just minutes away from the property.
Within a 10-minute drive from the estate are several schools, including Fairfield Methodist School (Primary), New Town Primary School, Queenstown Primary School, Blangah Rise Primary School, Kent Ridge Secondary School, International Community School (Singapore), Dover Court International School, Melbourne Specialist International School, Invictus International School, National University of Singapore, Singapore Institute of Technology, Sorbonne-Assas International Law School, and School of Science and Technology, Singapore.
Other nearby noteworthy amenities include Alexandra Hospital, Hort Park, Good Year Supermarket, Fair Price Stirling Road, Kumo Japanese Dining, Ristorante Takada, Corner House, Ristorante Palermo, YUZU Japanese Restaurant, Pietrasanta, Queensway Shopping Centre, Anchorpoint Shopping Centre, Holland Road Shopping Centre, West Coast Plaza, Rochester Mall, Viva Vista Shopping Mall, and Alexandra Central Mall.
