Site plan

Stacks 23, 24, 31-33, and 14-20 are outward facing with the closest proximity to Sims Avenue and Paya Lebar Road – meaning the units in these stacks will face more traffic noise. Apart from being subjected to more noise, stacks 14-20 will also be hit the worst by the dreaded afternoon sun.

For closest proximity to Paya Lebar Quarter’s retail mall, or Paya Lebar MRT, opt for stack 31. This is right next to an elevated pedestrian network which will bring you to the mall and train station. If you prefer being in close proximity to the office towers, go for stacks 26-28 instead.
