Martin Modern’s site plan and more have finally been revealed and it is definitely worth the wait.
The development by GuocoLand itself has dedicated up to 80% of the total land area for a green space, to be designed and groomed into an arboretum and botanic garden comprised of native flora.
The apartments proper will be designed as two 30 storey towers, with a grand total of 450 units. All of the units, will either face the gardens, the city, or the Singapore River. Fresh air and cool respite from the weather will definitely be a benefit of green spaces in this development.
Of course, Martin Modern will have a dedicated concierge service for its residents as well.
The total plot size, as mentioned in our previous articles, holds at 1.6 ha.
The convenience and location of the Martin Modern, is definitely one of the biggest draws of this development – since the Martin Modern is located in the heart of District 9. The development itself is located very conveniently, and is a 5 minute drive from Robertson Quay, where a wealth of luxury dining and retail options abound.
In fact, Common Man Coffee Roasters is just at the corner of Martin Road and Martin Place, making a quality Saturday brunch with excellent coffee a regular occurrence waiting to happen.
The URA masterplan also designates District 9 as an area where walking, and cycling is encouraged, and with such proximity to the planned Fort Canning MRT and Great World MRT, convenience is definitely not an issue. The walking times to both stations are approximately 15 and 5 minutes.
Not to mention – three shopping malls are located very closely, within a 15 minute drive to the Martin Modern, Great World City, Liang Court and the Central have no shortage of F&B or other retail options.
Therein lies the heart of the nightlife and party district of Clarke Quay, down river from Robertson Quay. Plenty of nightlife options are available here, as well as larger, more established restaurants. From JUMBO seafood, to the new Zouk, as well as Canvas club, all these are but a 10 minute boat ride at best.
Further down the Singapore River via the same $5 boatride – is the civic district and CBD on either bank. A multitude of cultural icons such as the City Hall building now housing the National Gallery Singapore. Other buildings of historical significance in this area include the Asian Civilisations Museum, Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall, and The Arts House.
The valuation potential of the Martin Modern, is in good health as well, seeing that the neighbouring developments have no shortage of both established value, as well as recognition.
The neighbouring property developments include Studio M Hotel, a favourite among younger couples and travellers, as well as the established steadfast, Intercontinental Singapore. Other boutique hotel developments include M Social hotel, as well as Warehouse Hotel, a recent arrival, but well received.
The finer side of life becomes an everyday and routine, yet sensual experience in the heart of the city living in the Martin Modern, with its greenery providing a respite from the noise and crowds, yet being close enough to work and play to be a boon.
