History & Culturally Rich
As Beach Road, one of Singapore’s oldest roads, was once a coastal road that faced the sea, hence it got its name.
Its surrounding areas are transformed into a bustling commercial zone filled with office buildings & retail shops. Rows of pubs & bars have also popped up along the very popular Kampong Glam. As no trace of the sea remains at Beach Road now.
Due to Beach Road being quite centralized, there are several buses that travel through it. City Gate is sandwiched between two prominent roads – Kallang Road and Nicoll Highway.
Location of City Gate Shoppes & Residences
City Gate aims to completely revitalize the vicinity with what can only be described as an ‘infusion of fresh blood’.
Furthermore, as a mixed commercial and residential development, City Gate serves as a modern shopping mall for residents of Skyline Concourse just as Skyline serves as a quick way through to Nicoll Highway MRT station.
Most noteworthy, City Gate is at the forefront of the huge change coming to the Beach Road/ Ophir-Rochor Corridor as detailed in the 2014 Master Plan URA (Urban Redevelopment Authority).
Several parts of Beach Road like Kampong Glam are already identified as conservation zones. Yet there are also designated areas in the neighboring vicinity that are reserved as future green zones; a boon, given Singapore’s unrelenting heat.
An Independent Review of City Gate Shoppes & Residences
The government has rejuvenation plans for Beach Road hence the landscape will be irrevocably changed when this comes to fruition. Consequently, the interim years between the maturity of City Gate and the eventual growth of the Beach Road area will be a good time for existing owners to allow their property to appreciate further.
After Beach Road begins its urban redevelopment, there will be an inevitable influx of new commercial setups in the area. As a result, this provides additional employment opportunities for residents while increasing the value of the land.
People whom prefer larger units may opt for Skyline or DUO. However, City Gate seems to have the most potential. Do feel free to contact to view any of these projects or mixed developments for a comparison in order to make a definitive choice.
Update on City Gate:
As of mid 2015, 90% of City Gate’s residential units are sold, most of which are the 1 & 2-bedroom units, while approximately 50% of the commercial units are sold.
With top notch facilities and a large modern shopping complex in an area with excellent connectivity, City Gate is the first big change coming to an area prepping for a big change.
In conclusion, current owners of City Gate may have something really good on their hands.
