Baywind Residences

Baywind Residences @ Telok Kurau

Baywind Residences is an upcoming boutique private residential project that is located in District 15, East Region of Singapore. This development resides in the Katong Planning area, a residential estate that is in the eastern direction from the Central Area. It used to be housing numerous mansions and villas of the wealthy elites back in late 19th century to middle of 20th century. Many of them built their manors, villas and seaside resorts along its beachfront.

The exact location of Baywind Residences is at 93B, 93C and 95 Lorong N Telok Kurau. Telok in Malay means ‘bay’ and the word Kurau will be translated to “mango fish” so effectively Telok Kurau means Mango Fish Bay. Before the 1980s when Kampongs have not been phased out, on East Coast Road was where Telok Kurau, a malay village was located. Before the Second World War, Indians are commonly seen in Telok Kurau. The cows that they reared were often seemed roaring freely on the public roads. These cows were led from house to house and whoever needed to buy some milk, the cows were milked on the spot.

From the 1960s, the Telok Kurau area has been known as a tranquil and sleepy suburbs  in the Katong area and is known to be a residential enclave for the middle class. This suburbia covers rougly the Telok Kurau Road, intersect by many small road such as Lorong N, M, L, K, J, H, G of Telok Kurau, Joo Chiat, St Patrick’s and Jalan Baiduri. The mediocre buildings with a blend of semi-detached houses, terraces, modest bungalows as well as the low-rise condominiums together with the small businesses and coffeeshops is one of the main attributes to the charm on this part of the Katong. Although Telok Kurau has been undergoing urban redevelopment, it is still able to maintain its charms.

From 1990s onwards, there new residential developments here have changed its landscape but not too dramatic. The landscape is still dominated by low-rise condominium as well as a few tall ones here. Terrace houses with fresh paints and new semi-detached housings have also sprung up. All these establish a distinguished feature in Telok Kurau’s changing landscape.

The neighbourhood here contains rich history of the Peranakan with price which can be seems with the numerous restaurants and buildings that charm this area. This neighbourhood has long been known as one of Singapore’s more well-heeled and genteel neighbourhoods. It would not be exaggerating to say that this neighbourhood has some of the most gorgeous architecture and traditional houses as compared to other areas of Singapore. A good example will be the Joo Chiat area which contains the 20th century early architecture of Singapore, which is blending influences from Chinese, Peranakan as well as English colonial styles and techniques.

The Joo Chiat neighhourhood was gazette under the status for conversation of national heritage in 1993. Some of these shophouses are still homes to many. Some of these properties have also been converted in to different commercial usage such as cafes and also restaurants which serve authentic and traditional Peranakan cuisines. 

Though there are plenty of heritage buildings here, but this neighbourhood has very little large sized and tall developments and there is not at all any public housing around which gives it is exclusivity. Most of these Baywind Residencesminiums developments are located on the edge of this district and a huge estate of public housings can only be found in the south east border of this neighbourhood.

The land plot of Baywind Residences is a combined site that comprises of 95, 93C and 93B Lorong N Telok Kurau which belonged to 2 semi-detached houses and 1 bunaglow. This freehold land parcel was put up for sale on the 19th November 2020 with a reserved price of $25 million. It was successfully acquired by developer Baywind Properties Private Limited, a joint venture of ABR Holdings Ltd and LWH Holdings Private Limited, on the 29th December of 2020. The wining acquisition price was at $23.6 million.

The land parcel had drawn many interests from both overseas investors and local real estate developers. The attentions of these parties were capture with the various amenities and attractions that can be found within the site.  Many of them were looking out to get land plots to construct boutique developments as the confidence levels of local new entrants and established developers have risen which they believe that the demand locally for upgrading to new apartments or condominiums will be rising continuously in the next coming months.

The freehold site of Baywind Residences has a total plot size of approximately 18,507 square feet and with a gross plot ratio of 1.4. This gives it a total gross floor area of approximately 27,724 square feet.
