The Riviere by Frasers Property

Written by Posted On Wednesday, 22 May 2019 06:53

In previous articles, I mentioned that foreigners are allowed to buy private condominium developments in Singapore.  The Rivière condo falls under this category, and is worth considering as it offers a bit of history in its precinct.  It is actually part of a mixed development that comprises not just the Rivière apartments, but also serviced apartments under the Frasers Residence Promenade brand, and retail and F&B outlets.  The F&B and speciality retail and lifestyle shops are housed in 3 heritage warehouses, that have been gazetted for conservation.  These will be gutted and converted into delightful spaces with high vaulted ceilings, much like the historical buildings at Fishermans' Wharf in San Francisco, or the lofts of Canary Wharf in London.

In the same way, the Riviere condo occupies a waterfront position, by the banks of the Singapore River, that is the birthplace of the growth of modern Singapore.   Hence the Riviere uses the river as its inspiration.  The different states, qualities and nature of water.  It is at once hard and soft; gentle as well as forceful.  And as water can reflect the dualities of life, so too the Riviere condo reflects dualities.  That of Individuality vs Community; Legacy vs Modernity; Quietness vs Round the Clock Vibrancy.  Water also reflects sensorial qualities; the sound of rain, the smell of mist, the refreshing feel of a waterfall.  Water nourishes the senses.

In the same way, the sensorial qualities of water are reflected across different points at the Rivière condo.  From the arrival point to the landscaping, and the luxury of finishes in each residence.  Here we offer 455 apartments housed in two soaring towers, 36 storeys high.  Ranging from one bedroom to 4 bedroom units.  And here residents can withdraw into an oasis of quiet high above the ground, or they can cross the river over the nearby bridge to Robertson Quay, the entertainment hotspot that never sleeps.  With its bistros, bars, cafes, restaurants and artisanal shops.
