New Freehold Development – Orchard Sophia

Situated at the tip of Sophia Road, this newly launched freehold development enjoys a uniquely serene environment in Prime District 9 of Singapore. Orchard Sophia rests on Mount Sophia, offering tranquility away from the bustling Orchard Road and hectic city lifestyle. Orchard Sophia, located beside The Istana, is surrounded by amenities that enhance residents’ living experience.

Mount Sophia holds a rich heritage dating back to the 1800s, featuring iconic conservation buildings. They are the former Trinity Theological College, former Methodist Girls School and former Nan Hwa Girls Primary School. Developers have refurbished these conservation buildings into another development known as Sophia Hills.

Former Enbloc Developments – Site History

This freehold residential site spans approximately 23,828 sqft in land area with a plot ratio of 2.1. It represents an enbloc development combining two adjoining projects, Fairhaven and Sophia Ville.

Fairhaven, a 15-unit apartment development, had faced several unsuccessful enbloc attempts over the past few years. With the two sites sitting side by side, they seamlessly merged into a larger land area for redevelopment into Orchard Sophia, a new freehold masterpiece on Sophia Road.

Despite a sluggish market sentiment for collective sales of residential sites, the adjoining sites garnered significant interest. The tender of the site was in late Aug 2020. The successful enbloc took place in Nov 2020, with a land price of approximately $1,239 psf ppr to a local developer.
