River Valley Master Plan
Irwell Bank Residences, the newest upcoming new condo at Irwell Bank Road in 2021 is located in the River Valley Planning area and Leonie Hill Planning subzone in the Core Central Region of Singapore River Valley Master Plan 2019. The Central Area stands as Singapore’s dynamic city centre – home to a global business and financial hub, and a vibrant 24/7 lifestyle destination.
The area will continue to grow and become even more vibrant, by accommodating a wider diversity of uses and offering more jobs and business opportunities for the future economy. More city living options nearer to amenities are planned too, with delightful streets and public spaces that celebrate its rich cultural, heritage and green assets.
URA has plans to introduce more homes in the city locations such as Orchard, CBD, Pearl’s Hill, Marina Bay and Marina South, offering residents with greater variety of city living options, with easy access to transport and employment nodes, lifestyle and recreational choices.
Supporting amenities such as child care centres, affordable food, as well as people friendly streets and public spaces will create delightful mixed-use neighbourhoods that foster a strong sense of community.
For example, residents at Pearl’s Hill can look forward to city living amid a lush garden setting, with the City Park transformed into a playground and social space for residents and public alike.
Rochor area will see new housing developments coming up along the Rochor Canal, which will provide easy access to the waterfront. Residents can enjoy a stroll towards Kallang Basin and Marina Bay, where you will find diverse recreational and entertainment opportunities.
Over 9,000 new homes will be built next to Gardens by the Bay. This will be a car-lite, pedestrian-friendly urban neighbourhood. Shops and community uses will be located at the street level, with residences above, to offer increased conveniences to residents. Such active uses will enliven streets within the precinct, and serve as lively, outdoor living rooms for the community.
More Parks and Open Spaces
Major green and open spaces, such as Fort Canning Park, Gardens by the Bay, Singapore River, and Marina Bay provide ample greenery and recreational space, reinforcing Singapore’s image as a waterfront City in a Garden. There are opportunities to enhance and connect our green and blue assets, so that more people can readily access and enjoy our parks, open spaces and waterfront promenades.
Residents of the Irwell Bank Residences can look forward to a seamless and pleasant walk through historic green and blue spaces in the city centre, from the Singapore Botanic Gardens, to Orchard Road, Istana Park, Fort Canning Park, Singapore River, and Pearl’s Hill City Park. There are also future plans for attractive waterfront public spaces at Singapore River, one can look forward to a vibrant pedestrian promenade.
Orchard Road holds a special place in the hearts of many Singaporeans.
It has transformed from a street of plantations to a residential enclave before becoming our internationally-renowned shopping street. Beyond its iconic status as the country’s largest shopping street, the precinct is a place where friends and families gather to enjoy quality time together.
To ensure the continued vibrancy of Orchard Road, government agencies have been engaging stakeholders and the public to envision the next phase of Orchard Road’s evolution.
To remain competitive, Orchard Road offerings are continuously being refreshed. Most recently, Violet Oon’s flagship lifestyle concept which tells the Singapore food story from colonial times through nationhood opened at ION Orchard, while Design Orchard, which profiles homegrown brands and provides spaces for budding designers to collaborate, conceptualise and commercialise their products under one roof, opened at Orchard Green.
Orchard Road is more than just a shopping street. Each of the sub-precincts, namely Tanglin, Orchard, Somerset and Dhoby Ghaut, stitched together by Orchard Road, has a different personality. There are opportunities to introduce new retail concepts, lifestyle attractions and events to enhance the unique experience of each sub-precinct.
New Lifestyle Experience at Tanglin
The conserved Tudor Court can house a greater diversity of uses, including arts and cultural offerings. The covered canal behind can be turned into an attractive courtyard space enlivened with public art and outdoor dining, making it a focal area for local residents and hotel guests.
New Vantage Point at Orchard & Paterson Road Junction
Elevated link-bridges can make it easier to cross the junction of Orchard and Paterson Roads, and provide opportunities to take the picture-perfect shot of Orchard Road.
New Mixed-Used Developments at Orchard Interchange
The vacant State Land parcels at Orchard Boulevard present opportunities for exciting mixed-use developments above the upcoming Thomson-East Coast Line Orchard Interchange MRT, which can also be connected to Orchard Road via bustling side streets.
New Event Space at Somerset
The car park at Grange Road has hosted retail and F&B events like Flashbang. With rapid evolving trends and demand for more events, the car park can be transformed into a dedicated events space with dining and entertainment use to form a cluster of lifestyle offerings with the Design Orchard showcase across the street. They can also be linked by sculptural canopies to create a signature node on Orchard Road.
New Lifestyle Uses at Somerset
URA will be working with the stakeholders to enhance the connectivity across buildings and introduce more lifestyle uses in this area.
Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL)
Residents of River Valley can soon expect one more MRT Station servicing the area – Great World MRT Station. They will be able to enjoy quicker and more confortable travel. The Irwell Bank Road new launch condo is just 200 metres away from the upcoming Great World MRT Station. Great World MRT Station will be ready by 2021.
The Thomson–East Coast line (TEL) is a new MRT line under construction. Coloured brown on the rail map, it is fully underground serving 32 stations over 43 kilometres in length, and will be among the world’s longest driverless mass rapid transit lines. It will run along a combined north–south and east–west corridor, starting in the north at Woodlands town, passing through Upper Thomson and the towns of Ang Mo Kio and Bishan, before heading south to Orchard Road and Marina Bay, then running eastwards along the east coast through Kallang, Marine Parade and Bedok South, before ending at Upper East Coast.
The Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) will bring residents in the east and along the North-South Corridor closer to a train station and hence giving them faster access to the city.
Commuters will enjoy a 35-minute journey from Woodlands South to Orchard on the TEL, compared to a 50-minute journey by bus and MRT today.
When fully opened, it is expected to serve about 500,000 commuters daily in the initial years, rising to one million commuters daily in the long term.
Residents in Irwell Bank Residences and The Ryse Residences can look forward to enjoy faster travel When the Great World MRT Station is open by 2021. When opertional, residents can get to 4 different interchange Stations all within 5 Stations from Great World MRT Station. This means more alternative travel routes to get to your destination.
