High Residences is a mere 5-minutes' walk to the Tiong Bahru MRT station. Come 2021, when Thomson Line is up and running, Havelock MRT station will also be a similar 5-minutes' stroll from it. In Singapore, the value of a property is directly proportionate to its nearness to MRT stations!
For those who drive, Highline Residences is conveniently accessed to major roads and expressways such as AYE (Ayer Raja Expressway), CTE (Central Expressway), Havelock Road, and Zion Road making travelling to any parts of Singapore a breeze. Along with this, the Orchard Road, the Vivo City and the CBD (Central Business District) are all at a very short distance from the condo. It is also a stone’s throw away from the Redhill MRT Station.
The new condo Singapore launch has been situated at a perfect spot where the residents would find all sorts of necessities and entertainment easily accessible. The Tiong Bahru Plaza and food centre are a few steps away from the Highline Residences, for residents needing to shop for groceries or to dine out. In fact, the Tiong Bahru MRT Station is integrated with the Tiong Bahru Plaza. It is literally convenience at your doorstep.
Nearby Amenities and Attractions:
Certainly an estate to please everyone’s taste bud, Tiong Bahru is home to the popular Tiong Bahru Hawkers’ Centre serving local cuisines that attract people from all over Singapore. Competing against this food center are many independent eateries with rich and long history, much to the delight of consumers. Moreover, savvy and well-heeled entrepreneurs have set up retail businesses ranging from bakeries to jewelries to drinking joints, and invariably adding more charm to the already bewitching Tiong Bahru!
And for the shopaholics, Great World City and Tiong Bahru Plaza are here to pamper residents. Similarly, greeneries such as Henderson Park, Telok Blangah Park and Tiong Bahru Park are at the doorstep for morning exercises and evening strolls.
Incidentally, a premium estate will not be complete without the presence of renowned educational institutions. Zhangde Primary School, Cresecent Girls School and Gan Eng Seng Secondary School are all well within short distants from Highline Residences.
Tiong Bahru’s rich History:
The plan by Keppel to develop Highline Residences was by no means accidental. Extensive research had been done on the old charm of Tiong Bahru before the intended site was released as part of the government’s land sales program. Tiong Bahru was built in pre-war 30s as one of the oldest public housing estates for the masses. Its humble beginning however has taken on an interesting, if not phenomenal turn in the last decade where expatriates have quietly moved into the once sleepy and rudimentary government-assisted homes. Tiong Bahru today is a unique fusion of the vintages and the moderns, co-existing in the most harmonious and seamless manner!

Conservation efforts and status were put in place to preserve 20 blocks of flats built by the Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT) during pre-war 20s. These flats were characterized by British and other European designs that ooze artistic flavor, yet simple and pleasing to the eyes.
The simple curved form and horizontal lines from the art moderne form have been adopted by the SIT flats. Buildings at that time took on this predominant art form as the world was industralising. It is thus not surprising to find windows and buildings in Tiong Bahru looking like ships and aircrafts.
The transformed Tiong Bahru:

Tiong Bahru has been proudly voted as “One of the 50 most stylish neighborhoods in the World” by Complex Magazine for Top Travelers in the World. Such recognition has certainly brought much prestige and status, alongside Le Maris in France, Harajuku in Japan and SoHo in New York. Tiong Bahru is currently standing at 34th position and is the only neighborhood in south east Asian that has made it to the top 50!
Highline Residences – Comparison with renowned High Line Park in New York City
[caption id="attachment_3656" align="alignright" width="500"] High Line Park In NYC[/caption]
Highline Residences closely mirrors High Line Park in NYC which was once an abandoned railway track meant for transporting meat and dairy products to the docks. In April 2006, efforts were made to construct the park that would sit on the disused railway. Divided into a few phases, the once defunct railway was to be eventually transformed into a revitalized attraction for Chelsea, breathing new life into the once-rusty and forgotten metals. The park is now lined with swanky boutiques and world class upmarket coffee joints, creating a real estate boom in Chelsea. This is a sublime case of an old and almost forgotten history that had been dressed in new and modern fabrics to produce a magical charm, almost near impossible to be replicated.
Tiong Bahru is fortunate to be likened to High Line Park. The rich heritage has been jealously kept, yet allowing just about the right dose of modern-ness to create an old-meet-young amicability. A good balance of old architecture svelte and shining present-days have cleverly reinvented a backdrop that is eccentric, matured yet vibrant!
Gateway to Tiong Bahru:
It was in the plan that Highline Residences new launch is going to be a signature structure in Tiong Bahru. Adhering to the URA’s guide, it will have less than 500 units based on the land size. This new development comes with an interesting mix of 2 tall towers fronting the east, signifying “Gateway to Tiong Bahru”, greeting visitors from the east. Facing Kim Tian Road are rows of low-level Dual Key units to promote community spirit with better human to building ratio.
