Previewed over the weekend and to be launched on Aug 5, is a mixed-use development in Bukit Batok West. The 99-year leasehold Le Quest consists of five 12-storey residential blocks and more than 6,000 sq m of retail space on the ground floor.
Things seem to have gotten off on a good start as 30% of the commercial space has already been leased and as the inaugural mixed-use development in the area, it will no doubt set the tone for future similar projects in the vicinity. Despite this being the first mall to be managed by the project’s developer, Qinjian Realty, they are confident about the take-up of units as they are going for a younger, hipster and contemporary theme with 40% of the space allocated for food and beverage outlets. On the mainstream front, FairPrice Finest has already taken up 1,200 sq m and Koufu food court will take up another 500 sq m.
The project is expected to reach completion by the end of 2021 and the 516 residential units will feature smart home technologies. Units available will range from studio apartments to four-bedders. Prices for studio apartments are expected to start from $588,000, one-bedders from $648,000 and four-bedroom units will be priced from $1.38 million.
Le Quest is Qinjian Realty’s last launch for 2017 and they are targeting sales of 150 apartments at its August launch.
