The site was successfully acquired by Qingjian Group of Companies during an en bloc sale exercise in 2018. The land parcel has a total site area of approximately 33,457.2 square metres with a gross plot ratio of 1.4. It is slightly elevated with a frontage about 300 metres onto Toh Tuck Road. Being in a quite private residential enclave, Forett At Bukit Timah will be able to provide its future residents the much needed serenity and tranquillity.

Other developments that are within Forett At Bukit Timah’s vicinity include Kismis Residences, Tranquilia @ Kismis, Terrene at Bukit Timah, High Oak Residences, The Creek @ Bukit , The Hillford, Suites @ Bukit Timah and Meadow Lodge.

This development will comprise of 4 towers of 9 storeys high and 9 towers of 5 storeys high apartment blocks. The development will house a total of 633 apartment units with 2 shop units. The unit configurations available at this development comprises of 76 units of 1 bedroom plus study type which are sized between 474 and 495 square feet, 72 units of 2 bedroom type which are sized between 549 and 603 square feet, 149 units of 2 bedroom plus study type which are sized between 689 and 764 square feet, 93 units of 2 bedroom deluxe with home shelter type which are sized between 732 and 764 square feet, 119 units of 3 bedroom type which are sized between 947 and 980 square feet, 28 units of 3 bedroom premium type which are sized between 1055 and 1109 square feet, 29 units of 3 bedroom dual key type which are sized at 1033 square feet, 50 units of 4 bedroom premium type which are sized between 1281 and 1356 square feet, 9 units of 4 bedroom suite type which are sized at 1442 square feet and 8 units of 5 bedroom suite type which are sized at 1884 square feet.

This development of low-rise, which is set against the setting of the natural reserves and also the Bukit Timah vicinity’s greenery, which offers an appeal feeling of laid-back to the estate.  Not the being the same to other private landed residential estate, this is one enclave that is quite convenient as far as amenities are the concerns. The closest MRT station entrance will be approximately 10 minutes of walking away from the development.

The area around the MRT station is also a cluster of numerous shopping malls and old shophouses which are top potentials for the rejuvenation of the estate. There is also a market and food centre, assortments of shops and cafes as well as coffeeshops in this cluster.

This land parcel is one of the rare chances for developers to own one of the biggest freehold sites for residential redevelopment that is just short distance away from the MRT station. The grounds which are wide expanse will offer development an opportunity to offer create landscaping and design.

Within the immediate area are two other developments that currently launch for sale which is Daintree Residence and View at Kismis. Although both land plots of these developments are similar to Forett At Bukit Timah at Bukit Timah, their land tenure are on 99 years leasehold. There is also mixed use residential cum commercial development  which is of freehold tenure that is located very near to Beauty World centre which is named Linq at Beauty World.

Other than the rare freehold status for this kind of sizing for the land plot which is close to MRT station, there are also other appealing factors which might be leading to strong biddings for developers to acquire for this site.

One of the factors will be the location of the site. This portion of the Upper Bukit Timah area, which the location of Forett is, although is not the top tier, is still quite a desirable private residential enclave.

At this context, the site is actually in the city fringe which is quite near to the downtown city core. The site is also approximately 10 minutes of driving away from Jurong Lake District and approximately 25 minutes’ drive from the downtown financial district.

The Beauty World/Toh Tuck area which is just next to the swanky Bukit Timah enclave with higher housing prices as well as its quality education belt. At that area, the pricing for new private residential launches which are with 99 years leasehold tenure such as Fourth Avenue Residences and Mayfair Modern are commanding between $19xx per square foot to $23xx per square foot. For new launches with freehold tenure such as Leedon Green (which is just a few MRT station away), the units there are priced around $27xx per square foot.

The Forett at Bukit Timah which is of freehold tenure will likely to have a pricing advantage. With just across the Clementi Road, buyers might potentially enjoy a lower pricing.

The other factor is likely due to the land plot’s close proximity to the new growth areas such as the Jurong and the Tengah district according to the Master Plan of the Urban Redevelopment Authority. There also plans to redevelop the area of Beauty World itself. For a start, it will be the site which is zoned to be to become an integrated hub for the upcoming Government Land Sale Programme (GLS) for the first half of year 2020.

With its ambience of being an old town, this enclave might be appealing to certain groups of home seekers which are the millennials and also the expatriates.

The Forett At Bukit Timah is also close proximity which will be easily access to numerous reputable education amenities as well as international schools which are located along the MRT line and the Bukit Timah main road.

With its site being elevated, those units in the higher levels might be able to enjoy views that are quite wide around. Some of them might also able to get bits of view of the Bukit TImah Hill and Nature Reserve. This nature reserve belongs to the Water Catchment Area of the Central and is also one of the last patches of the primary rainforest.

For those buyers who preferred a residential development that is of freehold status and also within walking distance to the MRT station and in a neighbourhood that is a low rise residential enclave then the Forett at Bukit Timah might be an ideal home for them. This is especially true when they prefer a home that is with more greenery and character.

The site of the Forett At Bukit Timah is of a good size that is of mid-range which spans more than 360,000 square feet. The shape of the land plot is irregular that is favourable to a free flowing organic layout of the site.

Its longest boundary which has approximately 300 metres of the boundary faces the South Eastern and South direction to the Toh Tuck Road. Right across will be private residential developments that are of 5 storeys tall such as the Beverly, Nottinghill Suites and The Creek at Bukit.

And toward the North West and North direction of the Forett At Bukit Timah will be the mid-rise Signature Park which is 8 storeys tall. This might be good as it will shelter partly the units at Forett At Bukit Timah which are westward facings from the sun.

Towards the North East direction of the development will be several low rise residences which are mostly landed housings of 2 storeys high. Towards this direction is also where the Bukit Timah Natural Reserve and Hindhede Natural Park are located.

That is to say that this development is primarily backed against the other developments which are of low-rise to mid-rise with its frontage to the Toh Tuck Road which comprises of 2 traffic lanes. These overall causes the environment of the Forett at Bukit Timah to be relatively calm and peaceful and is away from the heavy traffic and crowds.
