About Peak Residence
Peak Residence at Thomson Road is a new freehold development, expected to be completed in 2025. With an exclusive of only 90 units and five-storey blocks, the project gives residents some hard-to-come-by breathing space.
The plot of Peak Residence has been standing for 35 years now and is ‘one of those homes' in Singapore that possess the charm and qualities that newer homes are simply said to lack. But that’s not to say that Peak Residences is dated. The development is a new limited edition that gives the previous Peak Court a fresh new overhaul in the Novena neighbourhood.
Peak Residence stands on a charming hilltop and has a panoramic view of the estate. Residents can unwind in a calming atmosphere and enjoy the project's rooftop facilities like its lap pool, gym, clubhouse and a gourmet terrace with BBQ pits.
Accessibility of Peak Residence
Peak Residence is effortlessly connected to public transportation, made possible by an intrinsically connected bus network and the MRT stations in the vicinity. The residence itself is just a few minutes away from Novena MRT station by foot, granting access to the rest of Singapore via the North-South Line. Orchard MRT station is a few MRT stations away, and City Hall, Raffles Place, and Dhoby Ghaut interchange stations are less than 10 minutes away by train. Much of the city centre is also easily accessible by bus.
Vehicle owners will have a breeze connecting to business hubs in the CBD and to nearby shopping malls. Peak Residence is also easily connected to the country’s major expressways like Central Expressway (CTE) and Pan Island Expressway (PIE) and other major roads like Thomson Road, Whitley Road, Newton Road, and more. Come 2027, residents can also use the 21.5km-long North-South Corridor (NSC), which will allow residents access to attractions like the upcoming Mandai Nature integrated nature and wildlife precinct in the north. The NSC will also connect residents to the CBD.
Homeowners who work in the CBD can take comfort in the fact that Peak Residence is amongst some of the best places that they could possibly live in. This is primarily due to how well the area balances accessibility to town with a sense of privacy and reduced traffic. Not to mention, the efficient transportation network ensures that homeowners can take public transportation to work without a flinch.
