5 unique condo concepts in Singapore that actually exist

Mention unique condominiums and the same few come to mind. The Interlace for its Lego-esque appearance, Pearl Bank Apartments for its atypical curvature, and Reflections at Keppel Bay for, well, resembling a certain Marvel superhero’s residence.

These architectural icons are plain for all to see, but what about the one-of-a-kind facilities that are only privy to residents? In this article, we give you an elusive glimpse of condominium features you may never ever have heard of.

1. The Reef at King’s Dock - Singapore’s only residential floating deck

Topping this list is The Reef at King’s Dock, a luxury condominium located right beside Vivocity. As it turns out, waterfront living in the south of Singapore is not solely reserved for the folks in Sentosa Cove.

Paying homage to the neighbourhood’s heritage, The Reef at King’s Dock houses Singapore’s first floating deck in a residential development - a 180-metre stretch furnished with hammocks and surrounded with marine diversity. Now you can watch an unobstructed sunset without going to the beach.

This is not the first waterfront condominium in Singapore, but it might be the only one with a swimming pool right by the sea. Nothing like bringing the Bondi Icebergs in Sydney into our own backyard.

2. The Florence - club-condo concept made for every hobbyist

“Lifestyle of a club, luxury of a condo” is a slogan that accurately sums up The Florence, an upcoming development in Kovan. They're located near a sports stadium and neighbourhood park, but we don’t think residents will be using any of them. On top of an 80-metre island lap pool and a complete aqua club for children, The Florence is scattered with pavilions throughout the property for every hobby you can think of. There’s a Biker’s Pavilion for riders to maintain their bicycles, an Ikebana Pavilion to master the Japanese art of flower arrangement at, and even a Sparring Ring Pavillion for MMA fighters.

Foodies can gather at the Wine & Chill, Outback Grill or Italian Pavilion while entertainment junkies go to an outdoor movie screening or sing their hearts out at the Theatrette Karaoke. It’s like a club-med experience in Singapore’s north-east.

3. High Park Residence - theme park within a condominium

The Florence may know the way to an adult’s heart, but you will lose your kids at the High Park Residences once you take your eyes off them. Who could blame them? It is basically a residence, theme park, and waterpark rolled into one.

Residents need not travel to Wild Wild Wet or Adventure Cove when there’s a lazy river right in their backyard - floaties not included. Children can also look forward to splash slides, jumping jets pools, and an adventure playground equipped with a flying fox. Meanwhile, adults can take it easy at the Forest Spa Villas or cook up a storm with the Teppanyaki Grills.

High Park Residence is arguably one of the most family-friendly condominiums around - at least until your kids outgrow the slides and get bored of them.

4. Parc Clematis - an open kitchen to host parties at

Previously known as Park West Condominium, Parc Clematis is a recent en-bloc development in Clementi. Clubhouses are nothing new to condo-dwellers, but those who love to have family and friends over can look forward to the new Chef’s Kitchen. And no, it isn’t a restaurant.

Chef’s Kitchen at Parc Clematis is a modular communal kitchen equipped with cooking facilities kept inclusive for Muslim residents. The space is not only suitable for cooking classes, but also potlucks, steamboat gatherings, popiah parties…the possibilities are endless now that COVID-19 restrictions on group sizes have eased.

The chef’s kitchen also comes with 12 ovens, because why bother purchasing one if you only cook once in a blue moon? Now residents can book them on demand and free up space in their own kitchens.

5. Grandeur Park Residences - an ice therapy corner for wellness junkies

While most condominiums expand their variety of swimming pools, Grandeur Park has come up with something new altogether - an ice therapy corner.

Now, you don’t have to be an olympic athlete. Cold exposure therapy is the new black in the wellness scene, so much so that people are purchasing portable bathtubs or paying hundreds of dollars for a session. If you live at Grandeur Park Residences, though, treating yourself to a shaved ice rub-down comes at a very low cost of $0. But if that sounds terrifying, tamer offerings range from Himalayan salt therapy to pilates classes by Amore fitness.
