Kopar – Project Description
Kopar at Newton is conveniently situated at the junction of Bukit Timah and Kampong Java. It is also very near to Newton Circus. Because it is in the pristine District 9, Kopar is among many high-end residential condos in that area. The Kopar at Newton condo is enclosed by blooming greenery and it sits on a 125,278 square feet land. Its advantage in heights provides stunning views of the skyline and beyond.
Kopar at Newton is a deluxe residential condo in the already high-end district that is filled with great entertainment and popular schools. The position of Kopar condo is conveniently set around a few shopping malls in addition to the shopping belt of Orchard Road. United Square, Velocity@Novena Square and United Square are one of those places that are around 10 minutes’ walk from here.
Velocity@Novena is a mall that is filled with many sports retail stores and personal services like the gym. Novena Square like Velocity also houses many F&B options and retail stores like supermarkets, fashions, and wellness. There are many beauty and personal services located in the same malls. United Square, on the other hand, works more towards kids. Many enrichment schools, child’s medical and specialist clinic as well as music schools can be found here. If you choose to drive to these malls, the distance to these malls is just enough to warm up your car engine. Newton Circus hawker centre is also very near to the development. A popular local street food destination that serves good local fare till late.
Planning for your children’s education is a major milestone for many new parents. You will be glad to know that there are a number of renowned schools nearby. Kopar at Newton is also within a 1-kilometre radius of three reputable primary school. My search on elite.com.sg, a portal to calculate whether schools are within a 1 and 2-kilometre radius of a particular property, showed that 8 Makeway Avenue is within a 1-kilometre radius of Anglo-Chinese School (Junior), St. Joseph’s Institution Junior and Anglo-Chinese School (Primary) whereas 6 Makeway Avenue is within a 1-kilometre radius of only Anglo-Chinese School (Junior) and St. Joseph’s Institution Junior. Both blocks are also within a 2-kilometre radius of Farrer Park Primary School, St. Margaret’s Primary School and Singapore Chinese Girls’ Primary School. Having a reputable primary school near a property in Singapore is an added plus. Families do consider such factors as it increases their child’s chances of entering a particular primary school which good be good for you as a seller or landlord down the road.
The development is located right in the city fringe. It is located within very close vicinity to Newton MRT Station and very close to Singapore’s main shopping belt. According to Google Maps, the walk from Kopar at Newton to Newton MRT Station will take approximately 9 minutes and cover a distance of about 700 metres. The walk to the station is relatively unsheltered and I do believe that in future there should be an access for residents along Bukit Timah Road which should cut the walking distance significantly as compared to what is shown on Google Maps.
In today’s environment where prices of developments outside core central region launches are reaching levels close to developments located in the core central region, I think it would be good to revisit city living. I have always been a proponent of purchasing properties in as good a location as possible and Kopar at Newton does tick this item on my property buying checklist. No matter how the Singapore government tries to decentralise the central business district, Singapore’s main shopping belt and central business district will remain as Orchard Road and Raffles Place and the Marina Bay Financial Centre respectively. Thus large multi-national corporations will still have their main offices located in the heart of the city even as some move backend and support operations to other parts of Singapore.
The development is situated just at the foot of Newton Flyover which can be a rather busy road. There may be potential road noise for some units in the development. It would be wise for buyers to select units wisely.
This development is a 99-year leasehold development whereas there are many freehold options in the vicinity.
