Normanton Park Location
PERFECT LOCATION AT THE CITY FRINGE
Normanton Park Location is a rare treasure and it will truly be a challenge to find another site with all its strengths in Singapore. Strategically located at the city fringe in District 5, Normanton Park Location is ideal for those who desire to live amongst nature and yet close to the city! Surrounded by the lush greenery of the natural forested areas of Kent Ridge Park and only a 10 to 15 minutes drive to the city, it is the dream of every home buyer to have a home at Normanton Park.

LIVING CLOSE TO THE CITY
One of the advantages of Normanton Park Location is the close proximity to the city, Orchard Road, and the Central Business District. For those who are working in the city, property prices in the city are much higher compared to Normanton Park which is in the Rest of the Central Region. Consequently, this development will be highly sought after by property buyers who can enjoy the quick commute to the city without having to pay higher prices for their homes.
Designed and developed by JTC, Greater One-North is a dedicated 200-hectare development in Buona Vista that offers a unique work-live-play-learn environment. Located about a 6-minutes drive from Normanton Park Location, the name one-north is very unique as it refers to Singapore’s geographical location of being one degree north of the equator.
This new concept of work-live-play-learn is enabled by an integrated ecosystem of residences, business parks, offices, research facilities, educational institutes, recreational facilities, and amenities to promote a vibrant environment for talents to come together to collaborate and create.
Being an integral piece of Singapore’s knowledge economy, one-north is home to many major companies and startups in new growth industries such as biomedical sciences, info-communications technology, and media. The developments under one-north include Biopolis, Fusionopolis, Mediapolis, LaunchPad @ one-north, Nepal Hill, Pixel, Rochester Park, Vista, and Wessex.
Besides one-north, the Normanton Park Location is also surrounded by many renowned business parks, institutions, and residential estates such as Singapore Science Park 1, Singapore Science Park 2, National University of Singapore, National University Hospital, Kent Ridge Park, Dover, and Queenstown. Together with one-north, all these areas form the Greater One-North Region.
Based on the research study by the Centre of Liveable Cities (Singapore) titled “Greater One-North: Fostering Research Innovation And Entrepreneurship”, the greater one-north region consists of 600-hectare of land and home to more than 120,000 jobs which accounts for an estimated 5% of the Singapore’s employment.
In January 2019, Grab announced it was investing $181 million on a new headquarters in one-north given its plans to expand its business operations. The new headquarters which is only about 10 minutes walk from the Normanton Park Location would accommodate up to 3000 staff and it will also house the company’s R&D center as it expands its tech team globally.
Similarly, local e-commerce giant Shopee also announced in September 2019 that it would set up its new regional headquarters in Science Park Drive which is about 11 minutes walk from the Normanton Park Location. The 6-story building would have an area of 244,000 sq ft and it could accommodate up to 3000 employees. Since its founding 7 years ago, Shopee has grown tremendously becoming the top 3 e-commerce platforms in Southeast Asia.
Besides newcomers into the Greater One-North region, CapitaLand is also in discussions with local authorities on plans to redevelop Science Park 1 and 2 to become an integrated ecosystem and be more connected instead of the present standalone buildings scattered across the 2 campuses.
With a cumulative land area of 55 hectares, CapitaLand is working with authorities on the possibilities of revising the plot ratio upwards such as the likes of one-north and Mapletree Business City at Pasir Panjang. Thus the Normanton Park Location can look forward to greater growth and vibrancy in the coming years.
URA Masterplan 2019 Transformation
As part of URA’s Masterplan for the Greater Southern Waterfront, there will be a continuous seafront boulevard connecting all the places of interest from Pasir Panjang to Marina East in the future. There are exciting plans to transform the Pasir Panjang Power District into a unique recreational and leisure hotspot for all to enjoy. From Normanton Park Location, Pasir Panjang Power District is only about a 12-minutes drive.
For nature lovers, there will be a new Pasir Panjang Linear Park which will connect West Coast Park to Labrador Nature Reserve, providing endless hours of idyllic enjoyment. In addition to the waterfront corridor, One Faber Group is also studying how they can rejuvenate Mount Faber, making it more accessible to visitors to travel to the hilltop.
In addition to the transformation at Greater Southern Waterfront, the innovation zone close to Normanton Park Location consisting one-north, Science Park and the National University of Singapore will enjoy an exciting addition to the cluster – the new Dover Knowledge District, which will provide a vibrant hub for research and entrepreneurial ventures.
And Normanton Park residents would be very glad to know that all these strategic transformations are contributing positively to the future value of their homes!
