EVERYTHING IMPORTANT WITHIN REACH
Every seasoned home buyer and investor knows that acquiring value is about location, location, location. Martin Modern has an unparalleled location, being close to the most important and exciting districts in Singapore, such as Orchard Road, the Civic District, the Central Business District (CBD) and Marina Bay. Such proximity brings with it convenience, time-saving, and an assurance that your property will keep its value well.
The CBD for Work and Wealth
Part of Singapore’s Downtown Core, the CBD is Singapore’s business and financial hub. It starts from Raffles Place along Shenton Way and Marina Bay, with the newest being GuocoLand’s Tanjong Pagar Centre. Also Singapore’s tallest building, Tanjong Pagar Centre has initiated a transformation of the district into a business and lifestlye hub in the CBD.
Hubs for History and the Arts
The Civic District is home to Singapore’s most important historic buildings. The Parliament House and Supreme Court are at the apex, with the old Supreme Court and the City Hall building now housing the National Gallery Singapore. Other buildings of historical significance in this area include the Asian Civilisations Museum, Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall, and The Arts House. Nearby, the Bras Basah/Bugis district is establishing itself as the centre for arts, design, and heritage.
Marina Bay for The Sophisticate
A few MRT stops and a boat ride away from Martin Modern, Marina Bay is the new, premium leisure extension of Singapore’s financial and business district. The mixed-use area is filled with round-the-clock activities and branded boutiques. It is also the destination for international events like the Singapore F1 Grand Prix and the National Day Parade.
Orchard Road to Shop and Sup
Known the world over as one of the great, world-class shopping streets to visit, Orchard Road is synonymous with the best shopping, dining, and leisure Singapore has to offer. It is home to the biggest fashion brand names, departmental stores, and most well-appointed and popular malls in the country.
NEW GROWTH, NEW POTENTIAL
Martin Modern is located within and surrounded by new areas of growth. Two new MRT lines will boost the connectivity of the area to the rest of Singapore. The Kim Seng and Outram precincts are set to be revitalised, while Robertson Quay continues to evolve into a popular and successful lifestyle enclave. Close by, the historic Civic District has been revitalised by the opening of the National Gallery, the fast evolving Marina Bay and the new financial district. In addition, more transformation can be expected from the Kim Seng precinct all the way to Outram.
Singapore River Lifestyle Corridor
At varying, yet accessible, distances to Martin Modern, the Singapore River attractions of Boat Quay, Clarke Quay, and Robertson Quay form an important waterside entertainment and tourist corridor. Of the three quays, Robertson Quay is the largest one, with the most attractive residential character. With its cosmopolitan mix of lively cafes, restaurants, bars, galleries, and theatres, it also happens to be closest to Martin Modern.
Kim Seng & Outram
The Kim Seng and Outram precincts are new developments within the River Valley belt, bringing hotels, shopping, offices and residences that will enhance the buzz and the value of the areas surrounding them.
