Kajima Development and SPH unveil The Woodleigh Residences, a landmark project in Bidadari Estate

Singapore, 26 October 2018 - Japanese property developer, Kajima Development Private Limited (“Kajima”), and Asia’s leading media organisation, Singapore Press Holdings Limited (“SPH”) have jointly unveiled their latest and most ambitious integrated development, The Woodleigh Residences.

Located at the junction of Upper Serangoon and Upper Aljunied Road, this premium project sits on 25,440 sqm of land and is Bidadari’s only integrated development with residences built above The Woodleigh Mall, as well as a transportation hub with an MRT station and linkway to Singapore’s first underground bus interchange. It is also integrated with a neighbourhood police post and a community club, offering a complete and convenient living experience.

Mr Shuichi Oishi, Chief Executive Officer of Kajima Development said: “We are delighted to unveil The Woodleigh Residences in partnership with SPH. This development presents a great opportunity for Kajima to leverage our strengths in design development, technologies, and proven experiences to bring Japanese craftsmanship into Singapore real estate.”

Dr Lee Boon Yang, Chairman of SPH, said: “It is with great excitement that we launch The Woodleigh Residences, our second residential project after Sky@eleven in Thomson Lane. With its strategic location and proximity to both nature and amenities, I am confident that The Woodleigh Residences is well-poised to offer a quality and holistic living experience for discerning homeowners.”  


A myriad of amenities at your doorstep

Residents will enjoy direct access to Woodleigh MRT Station and Singapore’s first air-conditioned underground bus interchange. As part of community building, Kajima and SPH will work with the People’s Association and the Singapore Police Force to build a 6,000 sqm Community Club and a 2,190 sqm Neighbourhood Police Centre in the integrated development.

The Woodleigh Residences itself will boast 667 premium residences overlooking the tranquil Alkaff Lake and Bidadari Park, while The Woodleigh Mall will have close to 28,000 sqm of retail, dining and commercial space, including a supermarket.


Bidadari – the next big thing

Considered as the Jewel of Bidadari Estate Master Plan, the development is well-placed to be the heartbeat of Bidadari as the Master Plan unfolds. It is well-positioned to benefit from the area’s development and will also be the heartbeat of Bidadari’s “A Community in a Garden” concept. Being sited right by a lake and parkland will allow residents to enjoy picturesque views of Alkaff Lake and Bidadari Park.

Its excellent location at the city fringe with major expressways only minutes away has made Bidadari one of the most sought-after new housing estates in Singapore, with its sale of Build-To-Order (BTO) flats receiving overwhelming reception. As such, residents also stand to benefit from a large pool of future potential resale buyers as well as capital gains.

The Woodleigh Residences is also within a 1-2 km catchment of popular primary, secondary and international schools. These include St. Andrew’s Village with its primary and secondary schools and junior college, Maris Stella High School, Cedar Primary School and Stamford American International School.


Refined Japanese aesthetics

The Woodleigh Residences is the perfect showcase of the time-honoured tradition of Japanese craftsmanship.

Each of its 2- to 4-bedroom residences will bear the Japanese hallmarks of intricate and clean-cut designs as well as a meticulous attention to detail. These range from thoughtful, space-maximising functions to the seamless, flushed flooring from living room to balcony that extends usable space, evoking a sense of spatial freedom and allowing spectacular, uninterrupted views of the lake and gardens.

On the condominium grounds, pools, lagoons and pavilions are carefully interspersed with a sunken BBQ courtyard, lush gardens, gourmet and alfresco kitchens and tatami rooms to create an immersive environment. There will also be a well-equipped gym, an onsen overlooking Bidadari Park and Alkaff Lake and an Urban Farming Area.


The development is expected to be completed by 31 August 2022.


Sales Gallery

The Woodleigh Residences sales gallery is located beside NEX Shopping Mall (Serangoon Link) and is open from 10.00 am to 7.00 pm.
