SINGAPORE – Roxy-Pacific Holdings Limited (“Roxy-Pacific”, or the “Group”), an established property and hospitality group with an Asia-Pacific focus, together with its joint venture partner, Tong Eng Group, an established property developer and investor that has built distinctive homes in Singapore since the 1950s is pleased to announce the upcoming launch of its 186-unit development, View at Kismis.
Sitting on a plot of about 100,337 square feet (“sq ft”), this latest development is positioned to be a well-differentiated project offering a varied unit mix, the units will range from S$1,550 to S$1,750 psf with two-bedroom units starting from S$880,000
A 99-year leasehold development located in Lorong Kismis, within the popular District 21, the design concept for View at Kismis was inspired by a Modern Tuscany theme, a first-of-its-kind in Singapore.
The Malay word “Kismis” means raisins or grapes in English, a core ingredient of wine, and connotes a certain finesse and class, which is embodied by View at Kismis.
This development comprises six blocks of five-storey apartments totaling 186 residential units and two shop units. Residential unit sizes range from 517 sq ft for a two-bedroom apartment to 1,292 sq ft for a five-bedroom apartment.
The public preview for View at Kismis will be held on Saturday, 13 July 2019, and the sales launch for the development will be on Saturday, 20 July 2019.
Mr Teo Hong Lim, Executive Chairman and CEO of Roxy-Pacific, said, “The exceptional location and unique concept of View at Kismis, together with the exciting masterplan for the Beauty World area, presents an attractive value proposition for both investors and homebuyers. Additionally, View at Kismis will offer five-bedroom apartments, which are considered a rarity in the area, enabling larger families to realize their dream of owning a residence in this highly popular estate.”
The Modern Tuscany Lifestyle
Situated on elevated ground and capitalizing on its undulating terrain, View at Kismis will emulate the Tuscan wine valleys with six residential blocks lined in two staggered parallel blocks.
As an added effect of the staggered blocks, the communal facilities along the ‘Central Valley’ will be revealed one by one as residents progress through the valley, providing a different perspective at every turn.
To resemble cascading streams, the ‘Central Valley’ will include water features such as a 25-metre lap pool, spa cove, sanctuary stream, family pool and jet pool, split across different levels.
The residential blocks on both sides are also tilted slightly to allow a north-south orientation, avoiding the rising and setting sun, while capitalizing on the wind direction to facilitate cross ventilation for the central communal area.
View at Kismis takes the opportunity to feature communal facilities at the roof terrace, which complements the picturesque landscape of the ‘Central Valley’ to provide lifestyle options with a magnificent view for residents to enjoy.
Facilities at the roof terrace include sheltered pavilions on all six blocks with water features such as a champagne wet deck with partially submerged seating and bubble pool.
Mr Chan Sze Chin, Director at JGP Architecture said, “Good architecture reflects the true essence of a site while evoking a level of finesse and class. At View at Kismis, a rustic color palette with full height curtain wall windows achieve harmony of modern classical architecture.
