Transformation of Kovan
Kovan has never have the reputation for high end lifestyle, it started as a very kampong many years ago when it was know as the 6 mile stone or ‘Lag Go Zioh’. HDB in its Remaking our Heartland (ROH) program for Hougang and Upper Serangoon enhance the estate as a heritage corridor.
A few years ago, condos started to be developed and there is the Kovan MRT Station. Most of the condominiums are skewed towards the mass market.
This is going to change soon with Cheung Kong Properties Group, one of the top developers from Hong Kong who is the developer for a mixed development at the junction of Upper Serangoon Road and Tampines Road.
Stars of Kovan Show Flat
Stars of Kovan Showflat is one of the most impressive show flats in Singapore, reputed to be very high cost in millions, expected from Hong Kong top property developer.
At the entrance, you will be greeted with a few creative designed chandeliers that set the tone of the development. It provided the positioning of this new development as a high end hotel or properties found in district 9 or 10. Towards the back of the entrance, there is a huge wall of marble looking panel with high ceiling height. Very tastefully done with a sense of prestige.
Towards the right of the entrance, you get to see the model detailing the development as close as possible. Of great interest, you see a dome effect clubhouse above the entrance of the development. Facilities are at the 3rd level, so residents would have the privacy and enjoy the exclusiveness. In addition, there are facilities on the top level of one of the resident block. Facilities for the residents are rather comprehensive with lap pool, aqua deck, playground, outdoor fitness area, lounge, gymnasium, function room, private lounge pool (to host private pool side gathering), BBQ deck, etc. At the Sky Garden, there are facilities for BBQ, tea, fitness, meditation, chill out deck and spa pool.
The commercial retail shops are on the ground floor with great prominence, extending to more than 100 m along Upper Serangoon Road. The developer came up with a British theme for the commercial area and it brings up a touch of majestic feel for shoppers
Behind the front wall is where the show units are placed. You are able to view the 1 bedroom, 2 bedroom and 3 bedroom units. Each unit is furnished with branded appliances and materials used were exquisite.
