Nestled along the Singapore River, Rivière is a rare private oasis only minutes away from a dazzling range of arts, entertainment and recreational options around Singapore’s Civic District.
All 455 luxurious units spread across two 36-storey towers will enjoy unimpeded views of the Singapore River and is set within intimate gardens and water pavilions surrounding this exclusive address.
SINGAPORE – Frasers Property Singapore will open its highly-anticipated luxury residential development, Rivière, for previews from 25 May.
Located on a rare riverfront land parcel enveloped by the meandering Singapore River, Rivière offers homeowners the perfect balance of peaceful solitude just minutes away from vibrant city life.
Mr Christopher Tang, Chief Executive Officer of Frasers Property Singapore said, “Every great city has an iconic river, and so does Singapore. With Rivière, we have thoughtfully set out to create a space that would take full advantage of its rare and significant location. The individual units boast design features that befit the beautiful surroundings, while the entire development embodies a true riverfront lifestyle with its blend of private green spaces, easily accessible quayside amenities, and proximity to the prime precincts of Singapore.”
An Architectural Masterpiece that Celebrates its Surroundings
Set for completion in 2023, Rivière will embody the significant heritage of its iconic location while offering residents all the conveniences and facilities of a luxury modern residence.
The residential development is a 99-year leasehold property consisting of two 36-storey towers with 455 units. The unit mix comprises one to four-bedroom apartments, ranging from 560 sq ft to 2002 sq ft.
Designed by renowned SCDA Architects’ award-winning Principal Architect Mr Soo K. Chan, Rivière is an architectural masterpiece that respects the history and legacy of the area.
Mr Soo K. Chan said, “Rivière is grounded in history. In designing the development, we aimed to bring together the tranquillity of the river, the surrounding natural landscape, and the bustling community around it. The residential towers are thus raised elegantly, framed by intimate gardens and water pavilions, to create a private oasis that naturally flows to the river and enhances the surrounding neighbourhood; tying the past with the future.”
Rivière’s impressive entrance plaza will be elevated to the second storey and integrated with magnificent views of the river to create an exclusive sense of arrival. All 455 units will also be elevated over 18 metres above ground level, providing completely unobstructed views of the Singapore River.
Reflecting the beauty of its surroundings, the development will feature a calming range of waterscapes and lush gardens.
Residents can enjoy a multitude of spaces for rest and relaxation such as a lap pool that faces the river promenade, a sky and spa pool, an aquatic garden, and a range of outdoor dining pavilions and lounges for social gatherings.
Atop the two residential towers, the Sky Deck will offer breath-taking views of the river and unblocked cityscape beyond. The Sky Deck features premium facilities such as a teppanyaki dining pavilion, herb garden, hot spa and a sky spa.
A suite of carefully curated spaces has also been included across the development, such as the library lounge and entertainment lounge.
Rivière will also be a fully-equipped smart community, with smart features to provide residents with greater convenience, safety and peace of mind. Convenient smart features include mobile access to common facilities, a smart letterbox, and an integrated smart home system.
A Contemporary Oasis Amidst Old-World Charm
The conceptualisation of Rivière is sensitive to the significant history and architecture of the historic street on which it is sited. This will be part of a larger development consisting of three carefully conserved godowns and newly built serviced apartments.
The hundred-year-old Jiak Kim street and these godowns, which were important hubs for Singapore’s trading community in the past, will be given a new lease of life as the entire precinct is transformed with a range of community spaces including a heritage trail and a mix of lifestyle and F&B options.
A Compelling Combination of Exclusivity and Connectivity
Rivière will be served by a comprehensive public transport network and is located within walking distance to three MRT stations.
The future Great World City and Havelock MRT, both part of the Thomson-East Coast Line, will be just 2 minutes’ walk away, and will connect directly to Orchard, Shenton Way, Marina Bay, and Gardens by the Bay. Fort Canning MRT, part of the Downtown Line, is also minutes by road from Rivière.
By road, the major expressways are also within easy minutes’ drive. There is also a river taxi that stops just by the Rivière, connecting all the way to the Esplanade via Clarke Quay and Boat Quay.
Homeowners of Rivière will be minutes away from the Civic District, where Singapore’s historical, architectural and cultural heritage began. Just beyond the development’s tranquil river promenade is the bustling Robertson Quay, well-known for its eclectic mix of dining and entertainment options.
Together with nearby Clarke Quay and Boat Quay, these areas offer an exciting array of restaurants, cafes, pubs and other recreational facilities.
Further down the Singapore River is the Central Business District, offering homeowners a palette of commercial, cultural, arts and lifestyle facilities.
The sales gallery is located at 88 Zion Road, opposite Great World City, and is exclusively open for preview by appointment only. The official launch for Rivière is expected to be in July 2019.
