Were you at the soft launch of Urban Treasures?
Have you already been ‘wowed’ by this impressive new launch?
If you haven’t, then this blog post is meant for you!
In this 3rd blog post on Urban Treasures, I am going to share with you more on the unique location of this development.
After weeks of talking to prospective buyers, I do hear feedbacks such as:
- “With the major roads and expressway nearby, is it going to be noisy?”
- “Are there amenities around Urban Treasures?”
- “How accessible is Urban Treasures? The development is not that near to Eunos MRT station.”
Many prospective buyers tend to have the above “concerns” about Urban Treasures but many of these “concerns” are unfounded. Let me share more about the location of Urban Treasures with you.
Location – Private, good-facing, peaceful
The Urban Treasures site holds the attributes of good facing, privacy, and peacefulness. Nestled within a low-rise private residential & landed enclave, the site is flanked by the quiet Jalan Eunos road (minor) facing the landed estate and Bedok Reservoir Road, which is not a major road. It is unlike the neighboring condominium – Euhabitat which is located right next to the Pan Island Expressway.
Urban Treasures is located approximately 400 metres away from the expressway. Hence, residents of Urban Treasures will be spared from the noise coming from the expressway. Moreover, many units at Urban Treasures face the landed houses to the East and get to enjoy the peace and serenity of the neighborhood. Units with permanent, unblocked, landed views are one of the rare commodities in Singapore these days!
For units facing Jalan Eunos (major), there is a good 47.9 metres setback and a nursery in between to act as a good buffer. The higher floor units of this facing enjoy the beautiful city view.
Amenities – find hidden gems
There are plenty of amenities around Urban Treasures. For instance, Giant Supermarket is within 7 minutes’ walk from Urban Treasures. Around the Ubi neighbourhood centre, you will also find plenty of eating places, neighbourhood shops, banks and childcare centres. Towards the north direction of the site, there are a number of coffee shops within the Jalan Tenaga HDB estate that offer nice zi char, roasted pork, chicken rice, and wanton noodles.
3 minutes’ drive away from Urban Treasures at Kaki Bukit Rd 3 (Techlink), mouth-watering Fish Head Steamboat and zi char at Tian Wai Tian, a hidden gem in this light industrial estate that only the real foodies (like me) will know!
Maha Bodhi School is located within the 1 kilometer radius from Urban Treasures and just a short 8 mins’ walk away. According to Kiasuparents.com, Maha Bodhi School is the 4th most popular school in Singapore, and staying close to this school gives you the added advantage of getting your kids enrolled into this school. Other than Maha Bodhi School, Telok Kurau Primary School and Manjusri Secondary school are also within walking distance to Urban Treasures.
Convenience and Connectivity
If you drive, you will be able to appreciate the convenience and easy access to Pan Island Expressway and Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway. It just takes you 1 min to get onto the PIE from your home at Urban Treasures.
For those who don’t drive, there are 20 bus services that can bring you to different parts of Singapore – Jurong East, Bukit Merah, Toa Payoh, Bishan Ang Mo Kio, Yishun, Eunos, Bedok, Pasir Ris, and more!
Eunos MRT Station is just 2 bus stops away. Ubi MRT Station is a short 8 minutes’ walk from Urban Treasures and Kaki Bukit MRT Station, another alternative, is about 9 minutes’ walk away.
Part of the URA Masterplan Major Transformation Zone
Paya Lebar Central, two MRT stations away (DTL), is located near the city and is in close proximity to the culturally rich Geylang Serai precinct. Wisma Geylang Serai and Paya Lebar Quarter added to the area’s rich array of lifestyle and entertainment offerings. Owners of key buildings within the precinct are on board the pilot Business Improvement District programme to develop initiatives that will further enliven the precinct.
With the relocation of Paya Lebar Airbase from 2030 onwards, the airbase and its surrounding industrial developments will progressively be transformed into a highly liveable and sustainable new town. It will be a commercial hub with jobs and amenities for future residents and employments. The land that will be freed up is equivalent to the size of 5 Toa Payoh towns. While it is still early to speculate how the landscape of Paya Lebar area will evolve, one thing is certain, that Urban Treasures is right smack in the middle of a formidable transformation that will be taking place.
