SINGAPORE – 22 February 2017– Qianjian Realty (South Pacific) Group Pte Ltd (Qingjian Realty) continues to lead the way in next generation homes as it partners fibre broadband leader, Singtel, to build Singapore’s first Internet-ready smart executive condominium (EC) – iNz Residence. This comes after Qingjian Realty, one of the top five developers in Singapore, launches the first executive condominium with smart homes in Singapore last year.
Qingjian and Singtel, together with smart home solutions provider hiLife Interactive Pte Ltd, signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) today which will see the three partners work together to provide Internet-ready smart homes for smart lifestyles in a smart nation.
Instant and constant connectivity
Through this collaboration, homeowners can look forward to Qingjian Realty homes fitted with ultra-fast 1Gbps Singtel fibre broadband. This means that they will also be able to start configuring their homes for smart living, powered by hiLife Interactive, much sooner. Apart from the residential units, Singtel is also poised to provide WiFi services in iNz Residence’s facilities and common spaces such as the clubhouse, fitness gym, and poolside.
“iNz Residence is the next step in our continuous commitment to develop next generation homes. Homeowners are looking for well-equipped homes that complement their daily lifestyles now and in the future. We will not hesitate to go outside the box and set up new partnerships with the leaders in the industry – Singtel, hiLife – to make their smart living vision a reality.” Said Mr Li Jun, Executive Director, Qingjian Realty (South Pacific) Group Pte Ltd.
 Mr Goh Seow Eng, Managing Director of Home, Consumer Singapore, Singtel said, “Singtel is pleased to partner Qingjian Realty to power Singapore’s first Internet-ready EC with our fast and reliable fibre broadband services. iNz residents will also enjoy smart living with our ever-expanding range of smart home products and services that will help them manage anything from home automation to elder care. We are excited to be able to deliver convenience and efficiency to their increasingly digital lifestyles. And with more consumers embracing smart living, we are also ready to provide our solutions to more forward-looking developers such as Qingjing.”
Smarter living at iNz Resident
Smart living at iNz Residence will be taken to new heights. Homeowners at iNz Residence will have greater peace of mind with more security and safety smart features such as the Smart Motion Sensor, Smart Contact Sensor, and Smart Digital Lockset. Enhanced devices such as Smart Leak Sensor and Smart Energy Meter increase energy efficiency, which could translate into savings on monthly utility bills. Convenience will be just one touch away with the smart home portals, through which homeowners will be able to remotely control all their smart devices through their mobile phone and access the virtual concierge at any time of the day.
Luxury, technology, nature, and tranquillity all-in-one
Located at the heart of Choa Chu Kang Ave 5, iNz Residence will be the first development in their district to offer smart homes, set in a landscape that is seamlessly integrated with lush greenery for the perfect lifestyle balance. The development will also be the first EC to boast a tranquil Sky Garden Trail, Scent Garden, Sky Yoga and Sky Meditation decks, and Observation Deck.
Minutes away from Singapore’s second CBD, and Forest Town Tengah
Singapore’s future second Central Business District (CBD), Jurong Lake District, will be just a 10-minute drive away from iNz Residences. Set to be Singapore’s next business hub, Jurong Lake District will create plenty of jobs, offer new amenities and even exciting recreational activities at its landscaped green spaces and waterways. The upcoming Jurong Region Line and Cross-Island Line, together with current North-South and Downtown Lines, nearby MRT stations and bus interchanges as well as KJE in close proximity means that homeowners of iNz Residence will be well-connected to most parts of Singapore. The future Singapore-KL High Speed Rail will also be mere minutes away.
Those with an appreciation for nature and sustainability will be pleased to note that the new Tengah estate will be just across the street. Dubbed the “Forest Town”, Tengah will boast dedicated spaces for gardening and urban farming, a car-lite town centre, 5km-long Forest Corridor, and a 20ha Central Park amongst many other amenities.
Wealth of facilities and amenities for all
Active lifestyle seekers can fulfil their need for thrills at the nearby Choa Chu Kang Sports Hall, NS HomeTeam @ Bukit Batok, or Warren Golf and Country Club.
