Cairnhill, a tony neighbourhood in Singapore’s shopping district of Orchard Road is set to welcome a new luxury development designed by the award-winning practice DP Architects, known for their projects such as Singapore’s famous landmarks, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay and The Fullerton Heritage and the Dubai Mall in the UAE. Located in the sought after district 9, the project titled KLIMT Cairnhill, will offer panoramic views from one of the tallest residential buildings in the precinct.
Towering 36 storeys over Cairnhill, a coveted address for Singapore’s eminent families of magnates, bankers and philanthropists for over a century, the project’s interiors have been designed by LTW Designworks, that specialises in luxury hospitality properties such as Four Seasons Seoul, The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong and Jumeirah Nanjing, while the landscape is by FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence winner, STX Landscape Architects.
The freehold development is expected to create major interest among ultra-high-net-worth (UHNW) buyers – both local and foreign – who are looking to invest their money in a safe and stable economy, in addition to the fact that investments in such luxury developments in the city-state also offer a lucrative return on investment. According to real estate company Knight Frank’s Wealth Report 2021, the population of UHNWIs in Singapore is forecasted to increase by 31 per cent between now and 2025 to 4,888,” said Christine Li, Head of Asia-Pacific Research at Knight Frank.
Alvin Teo, Executive Director of Low Keng Huat (Singapore) Limited, established developer-builder since 1969, expressed, “We are proud to launch KLIMT CAIRNHILL, an ultra-high-end residential development that promises to be Singapore’s hottest real estate offering catering to the discerning and influential. The prized freehold asset will present an exceptional opportunity to own a piece of Singapore’s illustrious ‘Golden Neighbourhood’. The glittering architectural masterpiece will house exquisite residences and amenities reflecting the glorious heritage of the location. KLIMT CAIRNHILL will be one of the most phenomenal landmarks to rise through the Orchard skyline.”
Reputable developer-builder Low Keng Huat (Singapore) Limited, established in 1969, has assembled a world-class team for KLIMT CAIRNHILL.
From the 29th through the 35th floor are seven four-bedroom residences that are furnished with both wet and dry kitchens, a junior master bedroom, two balconies and private elevator.
The highlight of the project is a conservation bungalow valued at S$100 million that sits on the site and will be transformed into an exclusive clubhouse. KLIMT Cairnhill sits on 67 Cairnhill Road (conserved bungalow), its two adjacent plots, as well as 69 Cairnhill Road (former Cairnhill Mansions)
The distinctive Anglo-Malayan style elevated bungalow will be restored to its former splendour, based on drawings from the National Archives of Singapore.
The history of the heritage bungalow could be traced back to the turn of the 20th century. The bungalow was later purchased by Lien Kwang Wah, a family member of Singapore’s distinguished pioneer banker and philanthropist, Lien Ying Chow, who founded Overseas Union Bank.
Suspended on the 14th floor is The Horizon Terrace where the Meditation Deck and Chill Out Deck will offer contemplative sanctuaries to its millionaire residents.
Other facilities include a 50-metre lap pool, leisure pool, reflecting pool, kid’s pool, heated jacuzzi, aqua gym, yoga deck, picnic lawn, BBQ terrace, children’s playground, gym, Golden Tree Garden, Art Nouveau Garden, The Tree of Life mural wall, private elevators for large units, home automation technology and concierge service, among others.
The project is expected to be completed by 2025.
