Opened in Dec 2020, Canberra Plaza brings a lot of joy to residents of the area, being connected directly to Canberra MRT Station, and housing 70 commercial units with dining and retail options.
There's a small water play park as well as a community plaza and learning spaces.
Notable tenants include Ya Kun, Pho Street, BreadTalk, and Starbucks, as well as national favourites of McDonald's, KFC, A&W and Japanese store Daiso.
This will be A&W's third outlet in Singapore, after its Jewel Changi Airport and Ang Mo Kio Centre stores.
6 minutes drive from Provence Residence EC
The 40-year-old Chong Pang City neighbourhood centre will get a rejuvenation in the form of a new integrated development with a community club, market and hawker centre, and facilities such as swimming pools and shops.
The multistorey 0.9ha development – bigger than a football field – will be called Chill @ Chong Pang. It will stand on the site of the current Chong Pang Community Club and Block 102 Yishun Avenue 5, a four-storey Housing Board commercial block which the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) will acquire.
4 minutes drive from Provence Residence EC
Sembawang Shopping Centre is another mall that offers a lot of convenience for residents of Provence Residence. It is a four-storey commercial development located along Sembawang Road, with some notable tenants such as Cotton On, Daiso, Giant and Anytime Fitness.
Due to its strategic location, Provence Residence EC offers a lot for its residents. It possesses a significant advantage of being situated near to an MRT station, specifically around 400m to Canberra MRT station. At the same time, it is also near to the upcoming North South Corridor, which provides further convenience for residents.
Provence Residence enjoys an advantage that very few Executive Condominiums can offer: close proximity to an MRT Station.
It is located a mere 400m away from Canberra MRT station, which is the the 139th station on the 30-year old North-South Line. Canberra MRT opened in November 2019, and has an elevated bridge that connects passengers from the ticketing platform to Canberra Plaza just on the opposite side of the road.
Being close to Canberra MRT station means that residents can not only get to the nearby stations such as Sembawang (Sun Plaza) and Yishun (Northpoint City) easily, it will also be very convenient to travel to other parts of Singapore, including directly to town area using the North South Line, changing to the Thomson East Coast Line at Woodlands station, or changing to the Circle Line at Bishan station.
This is also good news for home owners who are looking to rent out their rooms within MOP or whole units after MOP, since tenants' main concern is always whether the unit is close to an MRT station.
There is a only a small handful of ECs in Singapore that are located so close to an MRT, so don't miss this chance for Provence Residence!
For potential home owners of Provence Residence EC who love nature and the greenery, there are more reasons to rejoice.
Right in the vicinity there are 2 parks which offer some of the most rare and sought after features. The nearby Sembawang Park offers one of Singapore's last remaining beaches and Sembawang Hot Spring Park offers Singapore's one and only publicly available Hot Spring, where visitors can enjoy a foot soak or cook eggs in waters as high as 70 degrees celsius.
4 minutes drive from Provence Residence EC
For nature lovers looking for an escape from the hustle and bustle of city life, the 15 hectare Sembawang Park offers a picturesque sanctuary basked in tranquility. Located at the northern part of Singapore off Sembawang Road with a view of the Johor Straits, the Sembawang Parks offers a whole range of facilities and activities for the family.
Love the beach? You don't have to go very far as Sembawang Park offers one of the few remaining natural beaches in Singapore; stroll along the beach enjoying the sea breeze or have a picnic against the sound of crashing waves.
Other activities there include a maritime themed playground for the kids to enjoy playtime. Families and friends can also gather to enjoy barbecued food at the many grills located around the park. Angling enthusiasts can also cast their fishing rods and enjoy the serenity.
5 minutes drive from Provence Residence EC
Sembawang Hot Spring Park is special because it is precisely that - a hot spring. The only 1 of 2 hot springs in Singapore, and the only one that is publicly accessible (with the other hot spring being in Pulau Tekong), the Hot Spring Park is the only opportunity for Singaporeans eager to experience a hot spring.
Situated just off Gambas Avenue, the Sembawang Hot Spring Park was reopened to the public on 4 Jan 2020, after a round of renovation that added a whole slew of new features, including new cascading pools, a water collection point, enhanced accessibility for wheelchair users, and educational panels where visitors can learn about Singapore’s only hot spring park’s history and geology.
For residents at Provence Residence, the availability and accessibility of healthcare options would also be an important consideration. Luckily, there are two very well established healthcare facilities, namely Khoo Teck Phuat Hospital and Yishun Community Hospital, which are a mere 7 minute drive along Canberra Link and Yishun Ave 2. This means that reliable healthcare for any emergencies, if it arises, is always nearby and accessible.
Located at 90 Yishun Central, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital (KTPH) is a public hospital that began operations in June 2020 and serves more than 500,000 people in the north region of Singapore. It is part of Yishun Health, which is a network of medical and healthcare facilities under the banner of the National Healthcare Group.
With 795 beds, the general and acute care hospital delivers the highest standards in medical expertise and personalised care, focused on creating a comfortable experience for all patients.
Situated just beside Khoo Teck Phuat Hospital at 2 Yishun Central 2, Yishun Community Hospital launched in 2015 and is Singapore's largest community hospital providing step-down care for patients who are recuperating and do not have the immediate needs of intensive care facilities in an acute care setting.
Yishun Community Hospital is designed to be complementary to the services provided at Khoo Teck Phuat, and along with Admiralty Medical Centre, is collectively under the Yishun Health umbrella of the National Healthcare Group.
When planning to purchase any property in Singapore, it is important to first check the Master Plan as a point of reference for the upcoming plans and transformations that the government has in store for the area.
The URA Master Plan is an overview of the plans in store for land use, and this guides the development of Singapore's landscape over the subsequent 10 to 15 years.
For residents of Provence Residence, the most crucial plan to reference is that for the North Region, which is a well regarded area for the abundance of housing, commercial opportunities, development potential and many parks and nature sanctuaries.
There are several upcoming developments in the north region that promise enhanced connectivity, convenience, a multitude of housing opportunities, a greater focus on economic growth with a renewed Sembawang shipyard and more greeneries and parks to enjoy.
There will be an injection of new life and excitement for the Sembawang area, with new housing developments and the opening of Bukit Canberra. These developments will also be complemented with new employment opportunities.
Estate towns are planned to be liveable and self-sufficient, with access to amenities and conveniences such as shops, schools, health care facilities and parks. To ensure that there are also employment opportunities for residents, there are also commercial nodes, industrial estates and business parks which are near and accessible within the town.
It is through the effort of many government agencies that culminates in such a holistic and detailed planning and implementation effort.
For buyers of Provence Residence, perhaps the most relevant portion of the Master Plan are the changes and transformations happening within the immediate vicinity of the development.
Starting with transport and accessibility, Canberra MRT, which is just 500m away, opened for operation in late 2019 and its opening meant that residents within the area had a new commuting option, and one which greatly enhanced accessibility to other parts of Singapore.
Being in close proximity to an MRT station means that residents can get to all parts of Singapore easily, for their work or entertainment purposes.
To enhance the liveability of the area around Provence Residence, an upcoming Bukit Canberra promises to meet the community needs of the residents. Occupying a massive 12 hectare space, Bukit Canberra has Singapore's largest ActiveSG gym, and a wide range of facilities catering to all the needs of residents including an indoor sports hall, a hawker centre and a polyclinic.
To further enhance the range of amenities and shopping options for residents of the area and potential buyers of Provence Residence, Canberra Plaza will open progressively in 2021 and its excellent location being connected directly to Canberra MRT via a link bridge means that residents can access their shopping needs easily.
Canberra Plaza is designed as a New Generation Neighbourhood Centre, and residents can look forward to a whole range of amenities right at their doorstep.
Located just 1 MRT station away, Sun Plaza has only recently just been refurbished, and being just next to Sembawang MRT, offers more shopping options for residents and also a wide variety of food and beverage amenities.
Refer to Master Plan
Looking further in the North Region, it is also an area rich with greens and biodiversity, for residents who enjoy nature.
Under the Master Plan, there will be more recreational and community spaces created in Singapore Racecourse, to allow residents to better enjoy the surroundings. Along with other green attractions in the area, the Kranji area is set to become the top choice for family fun and bonding across all generations.
The attractions include Sungei Buloh, which was first opened in 1993. In 2002, 130 hectares of the area was officially gazetted as a Nature Reserve and renamed Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve to better reflect its status. Bird watching enthusiasts can catch glimpses of migratory birds throughout the year.
On the other hand, the Mandai area which is well known for the Singapore Zoo, is a nature precinct that is slated to be host to 5 massive parks and a free reservoir boardwalk by the year 2022.
Occupying a massive land space of 100 hectares, Woodlands Regional Centre is set to become the next key hub of economic activity in Singapore. The North region is a vibrant one, with a green landscape and also with a multitude of opportunities for housing, commercial and industrial activity and its proximity to Singapore's key neighbour Malaysia also helps to ensure that interest in the region is always strong.
It is within the master plan to develop Woodlands Regional Centre into a massive commercial hub and create many job opportunities within the region.
Over a 15 year timeframe, businesses, industries, research and development, and innovation and learning will be introduced. The position of the Woodlands Regional Centre ensures its critical role as the central hub for the Northern Agri-Tech and Food Corridor. This Corridor is intended to work in tandem with and connect with the plethora of other innovation hubs, including the Agri-Food Innovation Park, Republic Polytechnic and the Senoko Food Zone.
This will ensure that it becomes a blossoming breeding ground for innovation, and house industries and companies that can forward Singapore's ability to stay competitive within the region.
