Sophia Hills Condominium

October 12, 2014 | Comments Off on Sophia Hills Condominium

Sophia Hills condominium at Mount Sophia Road is a residential development by Hoi Hup Realty. The 23,771 sqm site once home to several leading Singapore educational institutions like The Methodist Girls’ School, Trinity Theological College and Nan Hwa Girls’ School, is set become the biggest residential development in Mount Sophia. The Sophia Hills @ Mount Sophia is situated in the heart of prime District 09, Singapore and a short walk to Dhoby Ghaut MRT station which serves 3 different MRT lines. The proposed condominium housing development will be made up of 1 block of 7-storey, 4 blocks of 6-storey, 1 block of 5 storey, 6 blocks of 4-storey residential buildings with a total of 493 residential units. As the Government rarely releases for sale residential sites located in the prime District 09 area, the site has attracted a strong bidding contest among nine groups of developers which is a signal developers are still bullish on land sites with special attributes, such as this site’s central location.

School buildings on the site have been set aside by the Urban Redevelopment Authority for conservation and must be integrated into the project design. The 3 conserved buildings are likely to be restored and used as residential club house, kindergarten cum child care centre and restaurant. At Sophia Hills Residences, future residents can enjoy the experience of Live, Work & Play all combined into one. The presence of Dhoby Ghuat MRT station provide excellent connectivity to almost every corner of Singapore. Beside the close proximity to plenty of shopping & dining facilities, travelling to schools and work are also extremely convenient via public transport. The future development will also be near the Singapore Management University and the School of the Arts.This means buyers can expect attractive rental yields, as the high student population could mean strong rental demand in the area.
