Lentor Modern Review: A Well-Executed Integrated Development That’ll Be The First And Only One In Lentor

Lentor Hills Estate will feature new parks, seamless pedestrian and cycling connectivity between Teachers Estate and Lentor MRT station, as well as commercial amenities to serve the community. Lentor Hills Residences is centrally located, near the towns of Ang Mo Kio, Thomson, Yishun, Sin Ming and Bishan. The popular Orchard Road shopping belt is a few MRT stops away and is also easily accessible by driving. The Marina Bay Financial Hub and Central Business District CBD is a short drive away.
The uniqueness of this land parcel is its cascading height control that will create a nice visual effect that blends the development with the surrounding nature. It is the perfect place for those who crave for a private lifestyle, as the condominium is brimming with leisure facilities that are entirely catered for the residents’ amusement. Situated in the tranquil landed enclave, Lentor Hills Residences is a new residential development at District 26 – Lentor Hills estate. This location will satisfy those who are seeking for a calming and peaceful living environment which is away from the bustling city but yet amenities are just doorstep away.
Nestled amidst the serene and verdant Lentor Hills neighborhood, Lentor Hills Residences offers a truly unique and exceptional living experience in Singapore. This exclusive residential development harmoniously combines nature’s tranquility with contemporary luxury. Interestingly, it didn’t perform as well as Lentor Modern, which sold out 84% of its 605 units on its opening weekend back in Sep 2022. However, one would presume that this was because, unlike Lentor Hills Residences, Lentor Modern is a mixed-use development with commercial spaces on its ground floor, plus it is also directly connected to Lentor MRT station. Housing Development Board (HDB) flats are public housing; while landed properties and condominiums make up private dwellings. Lentor Estate also features several highly acclaimed schools such as CHIJ St Nicholas Girl’s School and Anderson Primary School for children to attend.
Beyond being near Lentor MRT, those who choose to stay at the Lentor Hills Residences’ condo will find that Lentor Hills Road at Ang Mo Kio has a long and colourful history. Its name comes from the Hokkien term for “red-haired man’s bridge”, which makes reference to the bridge over Kallang River in the area. This bridge was built by Johnson Turnball Thomson, Government Surveyor of the Straits Settlement during the town’s first settlement. After rubber production began in the early 20th century, farms and attap houses were spread among rubber estates along Ang Mo Kio.
In addition to the amenities around the Lentor Hills Residences such as Ang Mo Kio Hub and Thomson Mall, the development itself offers several facilities. Ensuring a complete resort-like experience, you can find leisure facilities, basic necessities, and lifestyle amenities to uplift your living standards. This array of facilities & amenities at Lentor condo includes a dining pavilion, jacuzzi, pool deck, luxury lounges, local parks for community gatherings, and a lot more. With this unique parcel of land, the developers have created a new condominium with two towers that will consist of about 800 luxurious apartments. These units will offer a wide range of living options, including 1 Bedroom units as well as 4 Bedroom units and even penthouses. Lentor Hills residents can expect to have a wide range of F&B and retail options at their fingertips, as well as a supermarket or childcare centre just a stones throw away.
This retail centre is more than 500,000 square feet in size and has approximately retail spaces of 350,000 square feet. It has a Cineplex with 8 screens, a hypermart, a wide array of food and beverage outlets, food court as well as over 100 specialty retail stalls. At Marina Bay, the MRT service line then heads eastwards along the south coast of Singapore island to head into the East Coast residential estates of Tanjong Katong, Marine Parade, Siglap and Bayshore. It then continues east wards to the Bedok South and finally terminates at the SungeiBedok MRT Interchange where the MRT Downtown Line is also operating there. The MRT Thomson East Coast Line will further extend itself to the Terminal 5 of the Changi International Airport in the future.
Or the Yio Chu Kang Stadium & Sports Complex, the Lower Peirce Reservoir and Park, and Thomson Nature Park nearby. Transport-wise, besides the Thomson-East Coast MRT Line, a network of expressways and arterial roads serve residents in the estate. One of them is the new North-South Corridor (NSC), that is being built 5 minutes drive away.
With its proximity to this condo, parents can rest assured that their children are in good hands while they are attending school. For those looking for a primary school nearby, Anderson Primary School is the closest. Located 0.42km away from Lentor Hills Residences, it is a mixed school and it is only a short walk away. Those travelling by public transport can easily reach the school by alighting at Ang Mo Kio St 61, which is just 10 meters away.
