The Florence Residences – 99 years leasehold residential project in North-East Region of Singapore, Hougang. Built on the former site of Florence Regency, Florence Residences has a large land site and definately will house approximately 1410 residential units. With a vast land size of 389,236sqft, and an incredible 128 Condominium Facilities, this development exudes relaxing and enjoyable lifestyle.
The The Florence Residences Review is really a massive development with more than 1400 units, easily one the biggest in Hougang estate. The benefits of high-volume developments is that communal space is big and facilities are plentiful. Among the selling points for The Florence Residences is the Club-Condo concept with unique facilities including Amphitheatre with Outdoor Movie Screening, Sparring Ring Pavilion with Punch Bag Corner, Pool Table with Dart Board Pavilion. This project suits buyers who take pleasure in the recreational club lifestyle as you will have classes and workshops conducted inside the development. I would personally reccomend this to HDB upgraders who are living in Hougang/Kovan area since the entry prices are relatively lower when compared with recent launches.
Florence Residences is within proximity to Kovan, an active neighbourhood comprising a bowling centre,Heartland Mall, great food including popular Ponggol Nasi Lemak and Lola’s Café, and never forgetting Kovan MRT that is an 8 minute leave. Besides Kovan, Florence Residences is also near Hougang Central, the heart of Hougang Estate. Increasing existing amenities that also includes Hougang Mall and Bus Interchange is definitely the recently announced Cross Island Line (CRL) that can transform the present Hougang MRT into a Interchange by 2029. The good thing is that CRL interchange stations(near Hougang Polyclinic) is really a mere 6-minute walk from home.
Good and reputable schools can also be aplenty within 1km for children to analyze and live near. This project features a whopping 128 condo facilities with 12 clubs along with a 2-year complimentary classes and workshops inside the condo. Residents can also tap to concierge service and 24/7 Parcel Collection Corner in accordance with their needs.. Surrounded by mainly landed housing and facing Hougang Stadium, residents will get to enjoy a great 270-degree unblocked views.
The Florence Residences is situated along Hougang Ave 2 and Florence Road. It is far from really practical just to walk to MRT as it would take about 14-15minutes. Along Florence Road is mainly landed housing and there are not many shops or dining options near by. It is alongside Serangoon Junior College. Nearby several popular schools – Hougang estate has long been home to many good schools. The Florence residences is in the center of such exemplary schools like Rosyth School, Xinmin Pri School, CHIJ, Monfont Junior and many more which can be also well accepted in accordance with most Singaporean parents.
On the south in the Florence Residences is Kovan, a mix neighbourhood of private and public housing separated Upper Serangoon Road. Kovan is served mainly by Kovan City, which boasts a wet market/hawker centre, 2 major supermarkets, Heartland Mall and many HDB shophouses. Hobbyists will also find plant nurseries and bowling centre at Kovan City, and Kovan Sports Centre a wtqmuy location to spend their weekend afternoons.
Be spoilt for choice with food options. Kovan has not only fast food outlets McDonald’s and KFC, but also a multitude of traditional and modern delights. Kovan City itself sees popular hipster café Hatter Street and Thai BBQ 888 Mokata setting outlets there, while nearer to Florence Residences, along Upper Serangoon Road, sees dinner/supper haunts including Teochew porridge stalls, curry rice as well as the famous Ponggol Nasi Lemak.
Northwards in Hougang Central, you can enjoy a lot more amenities, beginning with Hougang Sports Complex across the road at Hougang Avenue 10. Hougang Polyclinic can also be conveniently located further down the same road. The main Hougang Central is already served with a network of transportation: bus interchange, NEL and the future CRL. If shopping at Heartland Mall has limited options due to size, then heading either direction to Hougang Mall or Nex @ Serangoon will complete your shopping experience.
