Urban living within the CBD’s cultural district at One Bernam
A modern luxe development at the heart of the city, with trendy malls, vintage cafes and heritage sites – all within walking distance.
There is something to be said for living near one’s workplace. Saving time on the commute to and from work allows one to sleep in a little later, as well as get a touch more rest time after work.
It gets better when home is surrounded by retail shops and cultural districts – all within a walk, cycle or train hop away.
One Bernam, a premium development between MCC Land and HY Realty, is one such home. The 99-year leasehold property at District 2 lies in the heart of Tanjong Pagar, a sub-district of Chinatown, an ever-changing neighbourhood where high-rise offices straddle pre-war shophouses and cultural sites and decades of built heritage meet modern, urban living.
The area promises easy access to not just the hustle and bustle of Singapore’s Central Business District (CBD) but also plenty of history and the arts.
THE CITY'S CENTRAL HEARTBEAT
One Bernam offers 351 luxury apartments ranging from one- to three-bedroom units, including three penthouse suites on the 35th level. As a mixed-use development, its first two floors are reserved for retail, offering residents shopping and dining options without having to leave their lobby.
One Bernam’s centralised location comes with myriad transportation benefits, including a five-minute walk to Tanjong Pagar MRT station, and once complete, an eight-minute walk to the upcoming Prince Edward and Maxwell MRT stations. For residents who drive, the development is situated close to the turn-out leading to major expressways like AYE and MCE.
Whether it’s a short drive or by public transport, getting from One Bernam to Marina Bay Financial Centre, Sentosa Island or the upcoming Greater Southern Waterfront is a breeze. A brisk 10-minute walk along Tanjong Pagar Road will take residents to where Neil Road, South Bridge Road and Maxwell Road intersect.
From here, one can savour all forms of Southeast Asian cuisines or find temples and markets for that Instagram-worthy post. Then, take a side turn into Erskine or Ann Siang Road to chill out at any shophouse bar to hang out till late, all the while knowing that home is just a short walk back.
The development is also a nine-minute walk to the former Tanjong Pagar railway station. The site will house the Cantonment underground MRT station (construction is estimated to be completed by 2026), providing additional links to the future Greater Southern Waterfront development. It will also connect to the Rail Corridor, giving fitness enthusiasts a conduit to Singapore’s unique cycling, jogging and nature trails.
Residents are spoilt for choice when it comes to retail options in the neighbourhood. Large shopping malls like 100 AM, Icon Village and Tanjong Pagar Plaza are all less than two minutes away by foot. For foodies, there are three well-loved hawker centres to choose from – Tanjong Pagar Food Centre (five-minute walk) and Maxwell Food Centre and Amoy Street Food Centre (10-minute walk).
ENJOY RESORT-LIKE COMFORTS AND MODERN PRESTIGE AT HOME
As a residence, One Bernam offers two collections – the Prestige collection with one-, two- and two-bedroom with study apartments, as well as the Palazzo collection that features three-bedroom and three penthouse suites.
The three-bedroom apartment measures 1,421 sq ft, which is significantly more spacious than other apartments in the vicinity. This is ideal for families or couples looking for space, especially in a central location.
All apartments come with luxurious fittings – living room fans by American Haiku, kitchen hoods and hubs by Switzerland-based Franke and V-ZUG, faucets and tapware by Gessi and sanitary fittings by Laufen. The modern trappings extend into daily routines or when residents are away. Smart gateway applications allow owners to connect and control in-home smart devices and set alerts. Doors are equipped with smart access control with digital locks for keyless convenience. Even the air-conditioning in the living and dining rooms is accessible via smartphones.
For penthouse suite owners, a Magic Mirror provides digital updates on traffic, weather and calendar status, helping you keep up with what’s going on before stepping out of your home.
At levels four and 34, residents can take a breather with a plethora of resort-style amenities and sky terraces. There are picturesque gardens, decks and pavilions for reflective walks, a clubhouse for get-togethers and a fitness club, gym and swimming pools for workouts and relaxation.
STRONG TRACK RECORDS
District 2 properties have had a stable average price per sq ft (PSF) since the last upswing between 2009 and 2013 (65.24 per cent). This was due to the fast recovery from the global financial crisis. As Singapore moves towards a post-pandemic recovery phase, there may be a similar upshot in the average PSF.
The property developers helming the development – MCC Land and HY Realty – have also had good track records, with successes in projects like Queens Peak, The Nautical, Northwave and Forestville.
For would-be home buyers searching for a luxurious city abode within a vibrant and progressive neighbourhood, One Bernam promises to be wonderful mix of the past, present and future.
