Coming from its humble beginnings in 1850’s, Orchard Road was then a simple lane where nutmeg plantations, fruit orchards and pepper farms can be found. It slowly made its way to what we now know as Singapore’s shopping haven. A number of shopping malls such as ION Orchard, Orchard Central, 313@Somerset and many more line up its 2.2km stretch.

From entertainment needs to upscale restaurants, hangout spots, and fashion finds, everything you will need can be found in Orchard Road. This means you’ll be a few minutes away from all these should you choose to buy a condo in District 9.

As District 9 is conveniently located near the CBD, living in the area will have its perks. Condos near the MRT will make it easier to go around the city as the Dhoby Ghaut, Somerset and City Hall MRT stations are just nearby.

Have your Singapore property in the heart of River Valley

Most of the Singapore property in River Valley is owned by middle to high-income residents of Singapore. Being in the area is a convenience as it is located in Central Singapore, with Clarke Quay MRT to take you to other destinations in the city.

It is also an enclave of famous restaurants and artisan finds such as coffee shops, hipster and boutique cafes, and many more. Having a Singapore condo just a short drive away from these amenities can be the best choice for your Singapore property.

Known to be the home for famous Singapore local dish called Hainanese chicken rice, a lot of locals and tourists visit Boon Tong Kee to get a taste of this renowned local dish. Great World City can also be found here, the one-stop mall for the residents in the area. Travel back in time and learn more about Singapore’s history at the Asian Civilisation Museum that features up to 1300 artefacts from its 11 galleries. The Asian Civilisation Museum also houses a café, restaurant and a museum overlooking the Singapore River.

More reason to choose a Singapore property in River Valley is that reputable schools and institutions such as River Valley Primary School, St. Margaret Primary School, Outram Secondary School and Singapore Management University to name a few are surrounding the area. This makes having a condo in River Valley practical as it is easier for kids and parents to drive to school every day.

With so much to offer, it is no wonder why District 9 is one of the prime locations for real estate in Singapore. You have the best of everything within a few minutes from your home.
