Immerse in waterfront living at Rivière, a luxury condominium that meanders for 153m along the revered Singapore River and is minutes from the Central Business District (CBD). Within the grounds are three conservation warehouses that were once home to the much-loved nightclub Zouk.
In fact, Rivière’s address is the famed Jiak Kim Street. Those familiar with the area will know of its superior connectivity by road, rail and river, on top of owning a slice of Singapore’s unique history.
As a new icon, the 455-unit Rivière, which means “river” in French, is set to illuminate and transform the neighbourhood. The residential development has recently obtained its Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) on 17 January 2023 and is ready for immediate move-in.
As part of an integrated precinct by Frasers Property, it is a landmark not just in Robertson Quay area and Robertson Walk but also in Singapore, rivalling projects in other prime districts like Marina Bay. Poised as a sanctuary for its residents, this development offers plenty of amenities that will allow them to craft their story for future generations to come.
New homeowner, Ms Hor, a manager in the tech industry, was drawn to the vibrant lifestyle and convenience offered by Rivière and purchased a two-bedroom unit there.
“I have been living in the Robertson Quay area for some time and I really like the lifestyle offered here. The most important thing is that Rivière is in an ideal location – it’s very close to the MRT station and Great World City,” she says.
“In addition, the design of the apartment is unique and elegant. I did look at other areas quite far away from the city centre but the prices are still quite high, so I thought why live far away when I can live nearer to the downtown? Plus, this project has good investment potential.”
An Excellent Investment
According to the Urban & Redevelopment Authority of Singapore, the rental rates for three-bedders in the city fringe started from around S$9,000 in Q4 2022. Mr Lee Sze Teck, senior director of research at property firm Huttons Asia, said: ”Rents of private homes in the Rest of Central Region (RCR) rose by 30.3 percent in 2022. Past data has shown that newly completed projects are able to achieve higher rents than old projects. Rivière, which has received its TOP recently, is likely to command a premium over older projects in the vicinity.”
Possible options include purchasing a unit and residing immediately, or capitalising on the strong rental market and leasing it out for a high rental yield. A handful of choice units on the high floors are still available. Ranging from 560 square feet (sq ft) to 1,711 sq ft, the remaining one-bedroom to three-bedroom premium units are ready for immediate move-in.
All units at Rivière come with beautiful views facing the CBD and Orchard Road and have the Singapore River in the foreground. This stunning panorama will be sure to wow any guests invited over, or for personal enjoyment as the day winds down.
Rivière’s unique riverside lifestyle and unparalleled location are perfect for expatriates and working professionals.
After a long day at work, throw on running shoes and head through the integrated heritage walk – this is just one of the ways to access the river promenade. From there, walk or run to join the country’s Park Connector Network.
Another zero-carbon option is to cycle, with many scenic bike routes that run along the Singapore River and merge with Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, the Civic District and Gardens by the Bay.
Working professionals especially will enjoy the bustle of the three quays. Whether day or night, there is always a trendy café to pop into, an art gallery to wander through or a live music bar to be entertained in.
The nearest, Robertson Quay, has a history that dates back to the 1880s and is home to numerous warehouses designed with a blend of European and Chinese styles. By the 1990s, the Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore saw to the conversion of the area into hotel, commercial and residential uses. Naturally, it has become urbanised and is populated with eateries, condominiums, offices and other recreational facilities.
Superior City Links
Rivière epitomises the very best of city living through its rail, road and river connectivity to the nearby CBD, Marina Bay Sands, Orchard Road and the rest of the island.
A mere three-minute walk away are two operating MRT stations, Havelock and Great World, on the Thomson East Coast Line. From there, quickly reach Orchard MRT station (one stop) and the luxury shopping belt, and the CBD and Marina Bay Financial Centre, which are a few more stops away.
Those who prefer to drive will find Rivière seamlessly connected: just five minutes by road from Orchard Road and the CBD, and 10 minutes from Fort Canning station. Major expressways such as the Central Expressway and East Coast Parkway are also nearby.
Beautiful, Thoughtful Design
Back at Rivière, know that it rises elegantly for 36 storeys on structural stilts that hold up a contemporary masterpiece of light, space, transparency, materiality and geometry.
Designed by the award-winning architecture practice SCDA, which is led by Principal Architect Soo K Chan, the development comprises two dazzling towers nestled amid manicured gardens and elegant pavilions that overlook the Singapore River.
The layout of the development has been designed to cater to the discerning urbanite, offering beautiful views of the waterfront and Marina Bay in the distance.
Work From Home In Style
Homeowners will get to enjoy the finest of modern luxury living with an imported kitchen from Poggenpohl, appliances from Gaggenau, sanitary fittings from Gessi and Duravit, and smart home features.
It is not just the “hardware” that gleams – residents also get to enjoy hospitality-grade living on par with that of luxury apartments in New York and London. With a quick call, concierge services can sweep in to take care of everything from housekeeping to baby-sitting, dog-walking and the laundry.
