Highly anticipated launch of The Woodleigh Residences, Singapore's only premium integrated development built with Japanese design and Japanese quality

Singapore, 8 May 2019 - Japanese property developer, Kajima Development Private Limited (“Kajima”), and Asia’s leading media organisation, Singapore Press Holdings Limited (“SPH”) will officially launch their highly-anticipated integrated development built with Japanese craftsmanship, The Woodleigh Residences, on 11 May 2019.  

The Woodleigh Residences is Singapore’s only premium integrated development that combines the superior build of Japanese design and Japanese quality, and also has the advantage of being built above The Woodleigh Mall, with its direct connection to Woodleigh MRT Station and the underground bus interchange.

Mr Keisuke Koshijima, Executive Vice President of Kajima Corporation said: “As part of our continuing drive to perfect the Japanese craftsmanship in design and quality, we will be contributing our technology and proven experience to set a new standard in Singapore’s real estate. Our development will be synonymous with the kind of Japanese design and quality that you will get in Tokyo.”

Mr Ng Yat Chung, CEO of SPH, said: “SPH is pleased to work with Kajima to offer The Woodleigh Residences. As Bidadari's only integrated development, and with the new plans announced for the Bidadari estate, this development is the jewel of Bidadari." 


The Jewel of the Bidadari Estate Master Plan

Widely known as the “future Bishan”, Bidadari is the first city-fringe town that is transforming into a distinctive and sustainable tranquil city-fringe district with world-class infrastructure.

A part of the 2014 Urban Redevelopment Authority Master Plan, Bidadari is envisioned to be Singapore’s first “community in a garden”, with the 10-ha Bidadari Park promoting green community spaces, while retaining the heritage and feel of Bidadari.

At the heart of this vision is The Woodleigh Residences, the integrated development that is the Jewel of the Bidadari Estate Master Plan. Built above The Woodleigh Mall and a transportation hub with an MRT station, residents also enjoy direct access to Singapore’s first air-conditioned underground bus interchange.

With the upcoming regional 10ha park just announced, Bidadari will be a new bio-diverse ‘green lung’ and sanctuary for nature enthusiasts. Features include Singapore’s first underground service reservoir, ensuring regulated drinking water supply and pressure for the district, a play area with a landmark 5m-tall treehouse and two 5,000 sq m lawns along with walking, running and cycling trails.

A thriving regional park complete with lifestyle amenities, it’s no surprise Bidadari is one of the most sought-after new estates in Singapore. With an overwhelming demand for flats in the area, a wide array of lifestyle amenities, and renowned schools within a one to two km catchment, all the elements are in place to make The Woodleigh Residences an enviable home for your family and the future.


Japanese Design, Japanese Quality

The Woodleigh Residences is the first integrated development that combines the best artistry and attention to detail of Japan, with Singapore’s innovation and quality. 

Mr Koshijima said: “Over the years when units got smaller in the Japan, the industry has developed many Japanese techniques and technologies to make smaller spaces “bigger” – efficient space maximisation. The Singapore real estate market in the recent years, albeit later than Japan, has started to build smaller units, and we believe that with our proven experience from Japan, we can bring these efficient space maximisation technologies to enhance the living experience in Singapore.”

Research has shown that Singaporeans preferred to have a balcony and also a large living room, so as part of the design process to address these needs, the developers have introduced Japanese techniques and technologies to make the living room and balcony flooring flushed to extend the living space. 


A home for all generations

The Woodleigh Residences is a home for all generations to live, play and grow together. 

Parents can drop their kids off at the Childcare Centre before heading to work, come back to a host retail experiences at The Woodleigh Mall, and dine at restaurants and cafes in the Mall and along the Heritage Walk. Grandparents can also enjoy the activities in the Community Club within the development. In keeping the multi-generational families close, Bidadari Park and Alkaff Lake provide ample opportunities for the whole family to spend time together in the outdoors.

The residences are also designed with specific walls that can be removed (without the need for re-wiring the electrical works) to adapt to the changing family needs through the families’ life journey. For example, a 2-bedroom residence’s living space can later be expanded with the removal a wall to create a comfortable environment for family gatherings when the children move out and start their own families.  


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.
