Riverfront Residences 41, 43, 45, 47, 49, 51, 53, 55, 57 Hougang Avenue 7
Riverfront Residences, a upcoming residential area at Hougang Avenue 7, located in the northeastern part of Singapore was successfully acquired by Oxley-Lian Beng Venture Pte Ltd for S$575 million. The old Rio Casa is a 286 unit development that not only features seven residential towers but also enjoys 200m of the Singapore riverfront. What started as farmland and villages whose streets were filled with culture and festivities, Hougang (meaning ‘the end of the river’) was later transformed and developed into Singapore’s largest public housing estate. As development began, the housing units at Hougang were designed to have more shapely curves and were given many styled architectural features. With the acquisition of this matured estate Rio Casa, Oxley-Lian Beng Venture Pte Ltd will soon be launching another prestigious condo development, Riverfront Residences along Hougang Avenue 7.
Riverfront Residences at Hougang Avenue 7 is located ideally as Hougang was announced to be developed as a new town, it is one of the first areas in Singapore to be developed according to the new residential plans. Hougang is being planned according to new rules, the most prominent of which, is that like old residential areas, the shops and shopping plazas will all be centrally located in one spot, instead of being scattered around the city. This will give families a chance of being more socially involved with other families and members of the community. The recent development around the area has given way for a new wave of foodchains and shops to open up, like KFC, McDonald’s and many more. The easy access and centralisation of all these shops and plazas gives the area a very lively atmosphere and attracts more customers. Riverfront Residences condominium is also located close to a lot of schools, which gives families an advantage of not having their kids travel a lot for their daily studies.
