What is interesting about the project is that Moshie Safdie have been appointed by the developer to do the design of the Bishan Central condo.

Here is an article on ChannelNewsAsia regarding this condo.

Renowned architect to design condo at Bishan Central
By Clement Masenas | Posted: 26 July 2011 1735 hrs



Moshe Safdie

SINGAPORE: Renowned architect Moshe Safdie has been appointed by CapitaLand Residential Singapore as the lead designer for its condominium at Bishan Central.

For the approximately 540-units development, Moshe Safdie has introduced a strong and distinctive stepping form that provides for private garden spaces for a large number of the units.

There will be two 38-storey towers linked by three bridging "sky gardens", which offer opportunities for commonly shared garden and leisure spaces.

Moshe Safdie, who is based in Boston, Massachusetts, said: "The concept moves past the traditional approach of deploying individual towers to create a three-dimensional matrix of public gardens and private terraces as well as to frame open views to the city."

Residents on the upper floors will enjoy views of Bishan Park.

The condo is in Bishan Central which is one of Singapore's most popular residential estates.

It is located a convenient five-minute walk to the Bishan transportation hub and Junction 8 shopping mall.

Here is a rendering I found in the CapitaLand website. It is still a conceptual model.

Safdie lead designer for Bishan condo

27 Jul 11

PROPERTY giant CapitaLand has roped in renowned architect Moshe Safdie as the lead designer for its new condominium in Bishan Central.

A unique architectural feature in the new development is the provision of private garden spaces for a large number of the condominium units. Its 'sky gardens' will also offer opportunities for commonly shared garden and leisure spaces for the residents.

No stranger to the architecture industry, Mr Safdie's company Safdie Architects has been responsible for designing the mixed-use Marina Bay Sands integrated resort.

CapitaLand Residential Singapore CEO Wong Heang Fine said: 'When completed, the strong architectural form of the condominium will be a landmark in Bishan, transforming its urban landscape.'

CapitaLand has partnered Japan's Mitsubishi Estate Asia, a wholly- owned subsidiary of Mitsubishi Estate Co, in a 75-25 partnership.

CapitaLand will be the lead development manager for the project, responsible for the full spectrum of sales and marketing, product design and development, and project management.

Located near Bishan MRT Station and Junction 8 mall, the proposed condo will have about 540 units spread across two 38-storey towers.

Sitting on a 129,137 square foot site, the 99-year leasehold condo has an estimated gross floor area of about 632,770 sq ft.

In February, CapitaLand clinched the Bishan site at $869 per square foot (psf) of potential gross floor area.

For it to break even, property consultants estimate that the condo units need to be sold at $1,300 psf. The condominium is expected to be launched in the first half of 2012.

Anyone have access to the animation shown on the news? It looks more impressive close up, and some units have HUGE balconies! Really interested how this project will turn out, after all Safdie's works tend to defy the notion that today's buildings look better in rendering than in real life.

Nice!! Thanks for the video. It makes me wonder though, since it is next to a mosque and an ITE college, isn't it going to be quite noisy?
