Orchard Hills Residences, a 168-serviced residences, designed by award-winning Japanese studio, Nikken Sekkei, is slated to open in the first half of 2021. This new MGallery collection property will be located in the heart of Orchard Road in Singapore. Guests have to stay a minimum of six nights when the property is ready to accept guests at its address at 30 Bideford Road.
The residences will be Asia’s first Grade A, fully-integrated luxury healthcare hospitality development, offering a seamless, one-of-a-kind experience that combines bespoke luxury hospitality services, carefully curated health and wellness services, modern and healthy cuisine options, and premium, best-in-class flexible workspaces all within one seamlessly integrated complex. The property will be within walking distance to leading hospitals and healthcare facilities such as Mount Elizabeth and Paragon Medical Centre.
The design was inspired by a metaphorical ascent up a mountain expressed through ample water and stone features, walking paths, lush open gardens and natural bamboo forests to enhance the ambience and create a calm, rejuvenating sanctuary for residents and visitors.
It will feature the world’s first cantilevered clear-bottomed swimming pool more than 100 metres above street level, a 9-by-9 metre digital art installation custom designed by the famed teamLab and other unique design features. The rooms will feature bespoke Giorgetti furniture and handcrafted decorative pieces from Japan.
Orchard Hills is SIN Capital’s flagship development and the first of a strong pipeline of integrated luxury healthcare hospitality developments in key gateway Asian cities. SIN Capital, a Pan-Asian multi-asset professional investment firm with offices in Singapore and Hong Kong, focuses on private investments in healthcare and real estate sectors across key Asian gateway cities. SIN Capital bought the 26-storey freehold mixed-use development Thong Sia Building in 2015 for S$380 million.
Accor retains its position as the largest hotel operator in Singapore with the addition of this serviced residence. The group would have an inventory of 7,797 rooms across 30 hotels with 3,932 in the luxury and premium range, 1,437 in midscale and 2,428 in economy.
“We are excited to collaborate with SIN Capital on our first urban wellness retreat in Singapore. The MGallery brand is one of our fastest-growing brands in the world and encompasses a gorgeous collection of boutique hotels, all with their own personality, design and rich storytelling. The opening of Orchard Hills Residences will certainly strengthen our luxury footprint in the region and consolidate our position as the leading operator in the country.”Garth Simmons, Chief Executive Officer, Accor Southeast Asia, Japan and South Korea.
