  • Location. The Essence location is within an established quiet residential neighbourhood in the Upper Thomson Road / Sembawang Road area. This is a predominantly low-rise housing estate that is not as built up as the rest of Singapore, and so has a more relaxed feel.
  • Shopping, Supermarkets & Food. In the immediate vicinity, you can find food outlets and eating houses and shops within a short walk. Some directly in front of the project, and others across Sembawang Road at The Brooks I and II. 3 km to Northpoint Mall, one of the largest shopping centres in the north of Singapore. Or to Sembawang Shopping Centre, about 5 km away. Better still, take the train 4 stops down to Upper Thomson station and Thomson Plaza.
  • Nearest MRT Stations. The Essence condo location will be around 520m, or 7 to 8 minutes walk to the upcoming Springleaf MRT station on the Thomson East Coast Line, that goes to Orchard Road, Shenton Way, Marina Bay, and East Coast Park. This line will also join the cross border rail link to Johor Bahru in future.
  • Accessibility. The Essence location is 2 minutes drive to the SLE (Seletar Expressway) that joins the BKE, CTE and TPE, making most parts of Singapore easily accessible. Off-peak, it is about 20 to 25 minutes drive to the CBD.
  • Parks & Recreation. One of the most attractive things about the Essence condo location is its proximity to nature reserves, parks, and reservoirs. It sits between two large water bodies, the Lower and Upper Seletar Reservoirs and attendant parks. In the vicinity we also have the scenic Seletar and Orchid Golf & Country Clubs, and the Singapore Island Country & Golf Club. Overall, a pleasant green environment.
