The Commodore: Redefining Luxury, Reshaping Canberra

5 min read

A luxurious upcoming development by JBE Holdings, The Commodore takes its name from the rich naval history of the northern Singapore neighbourhood where this new condominium is situated.

Home to the Sembawang Naval Base, which opened in 1938, this enclave came to be known as Canberra as a respectful nod to the original name of Old Admiralty House. This historic structure was initially dubbed Canberra House in honour of an Australian warship that visited here in the late 1930s.

The Commodore Superintendent of the Royal Navy was the first inhabitant of Canberra House. Today, it is individuals of similar status and respected position that will surely gravitate to The Commodore — a prestigious condominium, ushering in a new era for the area.

Pool at the Commodore
A 50-metre pool surrounded by lush greenery commands a central position at The Commodore.

The Commodore is centred around a glorious 50-metre lap pool, occupying the core of the property. Complemented by a spa pool, cabanas and a children’s wading pool, this oasis is the perfect location to spend leisure time and a pleasant sight to gaze upon from many of the apartments’ viewpoints.

Beyond the pool lies an expanse of lawn, the property’s expansive gardens harking back to the vast stretches of unspoiled nature that historically characterised this region. The gracious grounds provide space for picnics, parties and other outdoor gatherings, for children to play, or for residents to enjoy moments of quiet contemplation.

Meanwhile, catering to those more active moments, The Commodore provides a choice of indoor, outdoor and water-based exercise areas, with a gym, cardio and physio fitness corners. For energetic kids, there’s a creative playground area — including a tree house and activity room — that’s sure to keep any excitable child occupied.

For social occasions of the sophisticated sort, the condominium’s luxurious clubhouse includes a full-service kitchen for catering elegant dinner parties and lunches. In keeping with the trend toward spaces that adapt to different uses, moods and needs, the clubhouse and landscaped grounds also feature co-working spaces, and several outdoor lounge areas and pavilions that will serve multiple purposes.

Of course, the aesthetic you’ll discover indoors at The Commodore is just as impressive as the exterior setting. Entering through the impressive lobby and passing by the on-demand concierge, you’ll find yourself ushered into luxurious surrounds that celebrate the art of fine living.

Décor is warm, welcoming, sophisticated, with rich timbers and lush metal touches. Units feature high ceilings and glass walls that in many instances offer gorgeous views of The Commodore’s landscaping and water features.

Here, every detail has been carefully thought out, from the modern elegance of the finishes and design, to the high quality branded fittings and appliances (from brands including Hansgrohe, Villeroy & Boch, Blanco, Bosch and Samsung).

Units at The Commodore are equipped with cutting-edge ‘smart home’ technology. The latest modern conveniences include digital locks and smart doorbells, app-controlled air conditioning, electronic visitor management to open the main gantry and admit guests from the lobby, and the ability to book facilities on the estate straight from your smartphone screen.

Another area where The Commodore excels in convenience is its location. The development is situated just a few minutes’ walk from Canberra MRT and all the dining and shopping amenities of Canberra Plaza and Sembawang Shopping Centre. The future North-South corridor is just two minutes’ drive away, Seletar Aerospace Park (and future North Coast Innovation Corridor) can be reached in about 10 minutes, Northpoint City Mall is only one MRT stop away, and even the CBD is less than a half-hour’s drive.

Lawn and landscaping at The Commodore

Numerous excellent schools are located in the area, including Sembawang Primary School, Canberra Primary School, and Chongfu School. Abundant nature and parkland are also within easy access, with Jalan Sendudok Park and the Park Connector Network right next door, and Jalan Kemuning and Montreal Green both under 10 minutes’ walk away.

In the very near future, residents here will have easy access to the Bukit Canberra New-Gen Neighbourhood Centre, a 12-hectare sports and nature hub with gyms, running trails, outdoor pools, clinics and hawkers centres. This location will also prove highly convenient for those working in the upcoming Woodlands North Coast and Punggol Digital District business parks that are presently under development.

Comprising 219 units including everything from one bedroom through to four and five-bedroom apartments, The Commodore facilitates living on a scale neither too intimate nor too large. Here, you’ll have privacy when you need it, and the freedom to live, play and work at The Commodore, as the circumstances require.

Expected to TOP in 2024, well ahead of most other developments in the market, The Commodore is another outstanding project from JBE, presenting both an attractive investment opportunity and an enviable, luxurious way of life.
