Third, Lendlease will transition to 100% renewable electricity by 2030 through a combination of onsite renewable technologies, as well as the purchase of renewable electricity and renewable energy certificates.Fourth, it will collaborate with supply chain partners to “create digitally enabled supply chains to drive circular economy outcomes”. Lastly, it will collaborate with tenants and residents to transition to renewable energy.As a testament to the firm's commitment to sustainable goals, Lendlease’s funds, such as Lendlease Global Commercial REIT (LREIT), Lendlease Jem Partners (LLJP) and Parkway Parade Partnership, have ranked among the top spots in the 2020 the Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) rankings in the Asia Retail category.Read more: Frequent cleaning and high indoor air quality the benchmark at malls, hotelsThe GRESB is an investor-driven benchmark and reporting framework for the global real estate and infrastructure industry based on environmental, social and corporate governance performance.Kelvin Chow, CEO of Lendlease Global Commercial Trust Management, says that LREIT strives to create long-term value for stakeholders and provide a strong competitive advantage, given the increased demand for sustainable assets.See Also: * Singapore Property for Sale & Rent, Latest Property News, Advanced Analytics Tools * Re-imagining workplaces in a post-Covid-19 world * Lendlease invests $40 mil to spearhead digitalisation in built environment sector * Lendlease receives BCA recognition for co-working offering * Lendlease launches property project management platform * En Bloc Calculator, Find Out If Your Condo Will Be The Next en-bloc * HDB Resale Flats Up For Sale, Affordable Units Available

    Sky-high facilities complement city-edge location at The Landmark

    The 396 units in the 39-storey condominium will enjoy city or park views (Photo: Landmark JV Pte Ltd) A city-edge address is a plus-point for aspirational home buyers and investors, and upcoming The Landmark — formerly Landmark Tower — has it. Being in proximity to the CBD and heritage-rich Chinatown, it is also situated right next to the nine-hectare Pearl’s Hill City Park.All of the 396 one- to three-bedroom units in the 39-storey condominium enjoy either unobstructed views of the city skyline and Pearl’s Hill City Park, or views towards the Singapore River and surrounding estates, according to Rebecca Chia, director of Swan & Maclaren Architects, the architectural firm that has designed the development.Additionally, the developer consortium, comprising MCC Singapore, SSLE Development (the property development arm of Sin Soon Lee Group) and ZACD Group, has also planned communal facilities in the compound such that every resident will be able to enjoy stupendous views of the Downtown Core, Singapore River, as well as the southern coastline of Singapore. The 50m infinity pool faces Pearl’s Hill City Park (Photo: Landmark JV Pte Ltd) Sixty facilities across five decks With about 60 facilities on five different storeys, residents will be spoiled for choice. On the ground floor, there is a gourmet barbecue pavilion, jogging and cycling tracks, as well as a foot reflexology trail. Children can have a ball of a time at the Kids Wonderland playground too.The second floor is called The Splash Zone. Here, you can find a 50m infinity pool, with aqua lounges and sun deck cabanas lined up around it, as well as separate children’s waterpark and paddling pool. Due to the fact that the project sits on elevated ground, the infinity pool will appear to blend seamlessly with the greenery at Pearl’s Hill City Park.Those seeking a rejuvenating workout can head to level 14. At The Verve, residents can work up a sweat at the Sky Gymnasium, overlooking the Downtown Core, or the al fresco fitness corner and Pilates Terrace, before taking a shower and going into the jacuzzi aqua spa. There are also steam rooms where you can simply sit and let go of all your worries.

For an intimate private function, book The Dinette (Sky Lounge), a space with a double-volume ceiling height. You and your guests can socialise while enjoying panoramic views of the city from the full-height glass windows.At the same time, various vantage points on level 34 further allow you to enjoy Singapore’s city skyline and to entertain friends. Venues include the City Skyline Portico, Sea Horizon Portico, Du Vin and The HasheryThat’s not all. Even higher on level R at the peak of the building, you can dine al fresco at dining pavilion The Verandah, with breathtaking views of the CBD and heritage shophouses in the area. Alternatively, take it all in at the observation deck at the Pinnacle View.

Right from the arrival, visitors will be greeted by terraces and cascading plants, which create a lush feeling of “living next to a nature reserve, at the edge of the city”, says SSLE Development’s general manager Ken Chew. “It’s almost like living next to Central Park in New York City, Hyde Park in London, or Lumphini Park in Bangkok,” he adds.Swan & Maclaren’s Chia adds: “The Landmark integrates seamlessly with the adjacent Pearl’s Hill City Park whereby the architectural design approach incorporates luxuriant landscape at ground level, with greenery extending vertically upwards at various levels, at the podium, sky terraces and rooftop terrace.”Residents at The Landmark can also directly access Pearl’s Hill City Park via a side-gate. The landscaping in the condominium will also mirror the species of plants in Pearl’s Hill City Park to create a sense of continuity. Level R at the peak of the building offers an al fresco verandah (Photo: Landmark JV Pte Ltd) Growth potentialRight at the edge of the CBD, The Landmark’s location in District 3 is poised to tap the vibrancy of a 24/7 live-work-play district when more aged buildings in the CBD are redeveloped into mixed developments under the CBD Incentive Scheme.Investors can also expect higher rental yield when the upcoming Singapore General Hospital (SGH) Campus is completed. Planned to be Singapore’s largest medical campus, it will attract expatriate medical professionals and staff to Singapore.Plus, it enjoys proximity to the future Greater Southern Waterfront, slated to be rejuvenated progressively in the next five to 10 years as per URA’s 2020 Master Plan. Extending from Pasir Panjang to Marina East, the Greater Southern Waterfront will be six times the size of Marina Bay and offer residences, offices and a wide array of lifestyle amenities. This will provide another sizeable tenant pool for property investors at The Landmark.

She expects the project to appeal to both owner occupiers and investors. The project has also received keen interest from empty nesters living in the older residential estates of River Valley and Zion Road, adds Sim.Swan & Maclaren’s Chia concurs. She says: “The Landmark is conceived as a timeless residence built to be a prized heritage which can be proudly passed down from one generation to the next.” The Landmark will enjoy proximity to the CBD, future SGH Campus and upcoming Greater Southern Waterfront (Photo: Landmark JV Pte Ltd)Units at The Landmark range from 495 sq ft for one-bedders to 1,141 sq ft for three-bedders. Indicative prices for the 1-bedroom units start from about S$970,000.Visits to the sales gallery and showsuites of The Landmark near 79 Indus Road are strictly by appointment only.
