Gem Residences

District 12 - 1 Lorong 5 Toa Payoh - Condo View on map

Located in Toa Payoh, Gem Residences is one of the rare developments to be built in the matured heartland in some time. A 99-year leasehold condominium, the condominium consists of two towers of 38 floors each, hosting 578 units of varying layouts: from single bedroom apartments to penthouse apartments.

Each unit is equipped with top-notch furnishing and fittings from reputable brands such as SMEG and Hansgrohe. Along with facilities such as swimming pools, an indoor gym, and tennis court, which are pretty much standard fare when it comes to condominiums, Gem Residences stands out from its other contemporaries with its truly impressive range of services and facilities intended to make residents' lives as comfortable as possible: food delivery, private chefs, rooftop teppanyaki dining pavilion and spice and herb gardens are but a few of the food-related services offered, while residents' health needs are met through the in-house medical clinic, where residents have scheduled medical consultations, swimming, dance, yoga and water zumba classes, and a salt-water jacuzzi, just to name a few of the available facilities.

Even if residents should want for more, they would easily be able to find it in the surrounding area; Toa Payoh has just about everything that one could want in terms of retail or services. In addition, Gem Residences could not be more accessible, with both Toa Payoh MRT station, Toa Payoh Bus Interchange and Braddell MRT station being within one kilometre of the development, and Orchard Road and Raffles Place both being within a twenty minutes' drive. 

The fact that there are many nearby schools, including schools that are within walking distance of the condominium, is just one more point in favour of the development; it is definitely a prime residence both for individuals and families with children.
