New Freehold Mixed Development – Newport Residences

As the property market in 2024 welcomes nearly 40 new launches, Newport Residences, a new freehold mixed development, is also scheduled for its official launch.

This modern mixed development comprises residential, service apartments, offices and commercial components. It is a redevelopment project by City Developments Limited (CDL). This building is also formerly known as Fuji Xerox Towers, a commercial office building with 38 floors completed in 1987

Strategically located at 80 Anson Road, this freehold development aims to set a new standard of luxury in the new launch market. It’s likely the only freehold new launch in Singapore’s Downtown Prime Districts 1 & 2 for 2024. A luxury project launch in Core Central Region (CCR) will naturally attract attention from property market watchers, especially after the hefty increase in Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty for foreign buyers.


Property Market Sentiments

Since 27 April 2023, the Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty for foreigners purchasing residential property in Singapore has doubled from 30% to 60%. Historically, the Core Central Region (CCR) has been a preferred choice for foreign buyers. However, interest from foreigners seems to have slowed down based on figures from 2022 and 2023.

Nevertheless, given the scarcity of rare freehold luxury mixed developments surrounded by amenities and future growth potential, this new launch in 2024 is expected to generate significant interest in the market.


URA Rejuvenation Incentive: Central Business District (CBD) Incentive Scheme

As global trends shift, the way people work, live and play is changing, emphasizing the need for Singapore to attract talent worldwide. Business districts like Marina Bay and the Central Business District (CBD) must evolve into more appealing destinations.

The government is encouraging the redevelopment of predominantly office developments that are at least 20 years old, in selected areas. To introduce more residential options and amenities into the CBD district. This transformation supports the CBD’s evolution into a 24/7 mixed-use district, providing not only workspaces but also living and recreational opportunities.

To qualify for Central Business District (CBD) Incentive Scheme, the developments must meet minimum site area requirements and other criteria. The selected areas include Anson, Cecil Street, Robinson Road, Shenton Way, and Tanjong Pagar.

City Developments Limited (CDL) previously obtained approval for another URA incentive, the URA Strategic Development Incentive (SDI) Scheme for their joint redevelopment project with CapitaLand Development at CanningHill Piers.


Iconic Luxury Mixed Development – Newport Residences

Newport Residences is situated in Prime District 2 of Singapore and nicely faces the future Great Southern Waterfront. This iconic new freehold development will be proudly designed by Nikken Sekkei Ltd. A globally renowned architectural firm known for projects like the Shanghai Greenland Center, One Za’abeel in Dubai, Tokyo Skytree and the Singapore Rail Corridor Masterplan. The construction is led by the esteemed Woh Hup (Private) Limited.

Named Newport Plaza, this 45-storey development houses Newport Residences from Level 23 to Level 45, comprising 246 luxurious residential units. Offering various bedroom options including 1, 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms. The only super penthouse spanning approximately 12,960 sqft is on Level 45. New concept serviced apartments will be occupying the lower levels, from Level 10 to Level 22. The restaurants (F&B) and offices, the Newport Tower, are on Level 1 to 9.


Building Concept

This new development employs a Biophilic Design concept that integrates lush greenery into the building. It is to create a green oasis amidst the towering concrete and glass structures of Anson Road in the CBD. The cascading gardens at various levels provide numerous breakout spaces for residents and office workers within Newport Plaza. At the same time, it also mitigates heat effects and reduces solar heat gain within the building.
