The Gazania

The Gazania @ How Sun Drive

The Gazania is an upcoming residential development that is located in the residential enclave of Bartley, North East Region of the island. It is located along How Sun Drive. The Gazania is next to Casa Rosa and opposite of Lushan Garden which is very close to Bartley Christian Church. The site of The Gazania belongs to the former residential development of Sun Rosier. The site was successfully acquired in September 2017 in a collective sales exercise. The site was acquired by a 50:50 joint venture between SingHaiyi Properties and Huajiang International. SingHaiyi Properties is a unit of Singapore-listed real estate developer SingHaiyi Group whereas Huajiang is controlled by Chinese tycoon Gordon Tang and his wife Serena, who are the controlling shareholders of the SingHaiyi Group. The Gazania has a total plot area of approximately 146,046 sqft and with a plot ratio of 1.4. The land tenure for The Gazania belongs to freehold. Other developments that are within The Gazania’s vicinity include The Minton, Jade Residences, Forest Woods, Suites @ Paya Lebar, Bartley Ridge, Bartley Residences and also Botanique @ Bartley.

When the site was put up for tender in 2017, it sparked a lot of interests from potential developers. A total of 4 bids was submitted during the closure of the tender. The top 3 submissions’ bidding price was very near to each other having a very close fight. SingHaiYi’s bid came up top with the price of $271 million which was approximately 15% more than the reserve price. This worked out to be $1325 price per square foot (psf) per plot ratio (ppr).

It is not hard to understand why there are so much interests in this site. The site was one of the biggest sites there and with a close proximity to the MRT Train Station. Although some bigger sites along Bartley Road, these sites belong to 99 years tenure. The development’s site is the biggest plot with freehold tenure there. The site is also surrounded by landed residential estates with some low density developments with apartment status. Further more, the site is away from the main roads which will provides a quiet environment. All these makes the redevelopment potentials very attractive to its bidders.

This redevelopment of the site into The Gazania is scheduled to be completed in year 2022. Upon completion it will comprise 7 blocks of 5 storeys high building. The development will have a total of 250 apartment units which comprises unit types of 1 bedroom unit, 2 bedroom unit, 2 bedroom + study unit, 3 bedroom unit, 4 bedroom unit, 4 bedroom maisonette unit as well as penthouse units. The sizes of this units range from 41 square metres to 160 square metres.

The blocks of this development are designed to different landscape deck levels, reflecting the site character and respecting its surroundings. The distance between blocks are also designed in such a way to maximize unobstructed views while minimizing overlooking. The development also has extensive use of glazing and balconies on all units for residents to enjoy views from within their homes. As for the facade, loft expression at gable ends creates interesting architecture for home. A palette of earth tone colours against the clean-line facades creates an elegant yet homely feel to the whole development.

Highlights of The Gazania

Location
The development is located in the established residential area of Bartley, which belong to the city fringe. In the city fringe areas, it is rare to find lands with freehold tenure. The development is also very near to the upcoming Bidadari estate which is the going to be one of the most sought after satellite town.

Bididari is touted to be the next Bishan. Bishan’s property values have grown since it was first redeveloped 30 years ago. Today its property on of the top favourite for home buyers and the resale HDB price also command one of the highest in Singapore. Along with that the private properties’ prices also escalated along with the public housing prices.

Both of Bishan and Bidadari shared common attributes. Both are near to the city centre and under the planning zone of established estates. Once Bidadari moves to becoming a matured estate, it should also impact positively on the surrounding private property prices.

Family Living
For those families with boys, the Maris Stella High (Primary) School is just across Bartley Road. For girls, the Paya Lebar Methodist Girl’s School (Primary) is also within the 1 km radius. These 2 schools though not top brand but are definitely good schools which lay sound foundation for the children’s education path.

Also the pricing for this development is very close to those 99 years leasehold developments which are near the MRT stations.

Shopping Malls
Although there are no major shopping malls that are within walking distances from the development, it is possible to get to some of them with just minutes’ away. Just a train station from Bartley MRT station, residents will arrive at the Serangoon MRT Interchange station where the NEX is. The estimated walking time to Bartley MRT Station is approximately 4 minutes, while traveling to Serangoon MRT Station is approximately 3 minutes, getting from the development to NEX Mall will take approximately 8 minutes.

Bishan MRT Interchange Station is also where Junction 8 Shopping Centre is located. These 2 malls are the major malls patronized by a lot of residents staying in the North East Region as they offer a wide arrange of shopping, dining and leisure amenities comparing to the smaller operated malls in the region.
