Fact Sheet

Jervois Mansion’s Design Concept

Jervois Mansion’s design concept is based on three main themes:

Bungalow-Inspired Living: Taking its cue from the Good Class Bungalows (GCB) and charming Black & White colonial bungalows in the area, Jervois mansion's architectural design seeks to blend with the area’s heritage that is characterised by low-rise buildings and embassies.

Living In Nature: Seeking a fine balance between the site’s redevelopment potential and ecology, specially curated landscaping will adorn both open and vertical spaces. Through the cultivation of nature with interconnected sky gardens, it creates a "living in nature" experience for all residents of Jervois Mansion to enhance their quality of living.

Fostering Safe Communal Spaces: To cultivate safe social interaction amongst residents of Jervois Mansion amid the current covid-19 pandemic, the six residential blocks are separated by five interconnected courtyards. These open landscaped spaces not only offer good setback distance between the blocks and communal facilities, distinctive landscape features are also designed between them to provide a buffer. Each courtyard will have a one-storey pavilion with seamless architectural characteristics.

Architectural Design

Free-Standing Blocks: Each of Jervois Mansion's 5-storey blocks are positioned loosely on the site, akin to how good class bungalows are built around the neighbourhood. This allows gaps between the blocks, with lush greenery further accentuating their free-standing nature.

A Living Façade: It draws inspiration from the design of veranda in Black & White bungalows, which encapsulates the architectural response to the hot and humid climate of Singapore. At the same time, it brings nature close to living spaces. To revalidate this concept, the living façade will have planters running the entire length of the front and side façade of each block. Balconies are then positioned above them to bring nature close to each home. These white planters and balconies are supported and articulated by fine black frames, modelling after the façade design of 19th century colonial bungalows.

A Sequence of Pavilions: There are seven pavilions erected across five courtyards. Their design cues closely relate to the façade of Black & White Bungalows by adopting the same fine black frames. These one-storey pavilions are all open-concept, except for the clubhouse and gym. They either have a circular or concaved rectangular shape. Together they offer a coherent sequence of forms whilst displaying varied individual qualities based on their utility.

Landscape Design

Jervois Mansion's landscape design seeks to harmonise three elements - Life, Wellness and Happiness. The design concept is underpinned by nature to satisfy the innate human need for an abode that embraces comfort, exudes cheerfulness and foster creation.

The physical landscape is shaped and molded by the following concepts:

Natural Layering: Trees, shrubs and plants of various sizes, creeping groundcovers and lawns, as well as creepers and climbers, are arranged in appropriate layers to facilitate and promote the natural development of flora and fauna habitats.

Natural Habitats: By allowing the natural growth of plant species with minimal maintenance, this will help to shape the aesthetics of the living environment. Ornamentation and manicured landscapes will be downplayed to create a more natural environment to attract fauna such as butterflies, dragonflies and birds.

Biodiversity: A diverse range of plant species will be used to create a natural living environment. These will include spices and edible plants, as well as those with medicinal properties. These plants can be harvested by the resident community for their own use or cooking.

Seamless Landscape: The landscaping will be seamlessly integrated into the whole development from the basement through to the rooftop. This includes a 100m long linear garden in the basement while green buffers between the courtyards and roof gardens help to create a lush, vibrant and aesthetically pleasing living environment at every level.

Jervois Mansion Site Plan & Facilities

Jervois Mansion offers a myriad of facilities catering to all ages. They are organised with different themes in mind such as Harvest Quarter, Social Quarter, Junior Quarter, Wilderness Quarter, Sunrise Quarter and Family Quarter. The list of facilities and their layout are indicated below:

Jervois Mansion Site Plan

Site Plan

The following are the design aspects of some main areas at Jervois Mansion:

Entrance & Drop-Off Courtyard: The entrance & drop-off courtyard is punctuated by a cluster of a majestic Koompassia excelsa (tualang) and two Tabebuia Rosea trees, which will be covered by a canopy of pink blossoms in April and August during its flowering seasons. This will induce a sense of majesty and celebration amidst the verdant beauty of a tropical setting.

Swimming Pool Courtyard: The swimming pool is positioned in the middle of the courtyard with the clubhouse at one end. The walls of the pool are designed with a combination of straight and curved surfaces, while a small “island” is sited in the middle of the pool. This creates an imaginary stream where residents can swim, sunbathe, relax or engage in water-play. The pool tiles are in dark green tones instead of the usual blue, as it seeks to integrate the water body with the luscious landscape surrounding it. These thoughtful designs seek to foster community interactions and activities within an aquatic setting.

Tembusu and Waterlily Courtyard: It is an elongated courtyard that comprises a linear lawn with a cluster of majestic Fagraea fragrans (Tembusu) trees and two waterlily ponds at one end that will provide an open environment for informal and passive activities. The shading around the ponds’ area will allow residents to spend some personal and quiet time, while the regular blooming of waterlilies, flirting of dragonflies and darting of small fishes provide a calming effect.

Event Lawn Courtyard: The event lawn provides a large open space suitable to host activities for all ages. These include having picnics, engaging in informal games, organsing social gatherings or simply letting children run about. Meanwhile, the canopy of the towering and majestic Shorea roxburghii tree will provide some respite from the blazing sun. There will also be two circular, open-sided pavilions set within a bio-pond to offer a sheltered space for events amidst an ecological habitat.

Fitness Courtyard: The fitness courtyard will comprise an indoor gym, a yoga deck and meditation deck framed around a curvaceous reflective pool. With a porous walkway spanning its length, it allows aquatic plants to grow through it, enhancing the natural landscaping that Jervois Mansion seeks to nurture.

Cocoon Garden, Picnic Garden & Discovery Garden: The Cocoon Garden lies on the northern edge boundary connected by a single path. There are three individualised ‘cocoons’ within a moss and fern garden shaded by towering Dryobalanops aromatica tropical trees. These cocoons in distinctive squarish, triangular and roundish shapes will provide residents a quiet and contemplative environment to spend time by themselves.

The Picnic Garden lies on the eastern edge boundary. With the afternoon sun shaded by the buildings, a series of small lawns distributed across the garden will cater to small group activities. At the centre of it is a large hammock and small bar facility casual interactions.

The Discovery Garden lies at the Southern edge boundary of Jervois Mansion and faces the drainage reserve, which provides an ideal environment for flora and fauna to thrive. A series of small decks showcasing the discovery, life cycles and symbiosis of nature will provide a fascinating learning experience for children.

Basement: A 100m linear garden in the basement along the Western edge will be illuminated by sunlight through openings at the ground level. A series of stairs will link them together while a variety of plants lining the garden radiated by the glorious sunlight provides a strong element of visual pleasure to the functional basement.

Rooftop: The roof terraces of all six blocks in Jervois Mansion will be linked together by a series of trellised bridges. This helps to integrate various community facilities, gardens and open spaces in a seamless manner. The ecology of the rooftop landscape will be different from those on the ground level, capitalising on the greater exposure of sunlight to create new visual and living experiences.

Other Places of Interest Near Jevois Mansion

Besides the shopping malls in Orchard Road and Novena, there are also many other places of interest near Jervois Mansion. These include Clarke Quay, Robertson Quay, Fort Canning Park and Singapore Botanic Gardens.

Clark Quay - It is located along the Singapore River, which was the centre of trade and commerce in the 19th century. In the past, Tongkangs” (bumboats) loading and unloading their cargoes from the warehouses along Clarke Quay used to be a common sight.

But today, the shophouses and warehouses have been refurbished and the area transformed into a bustling destination filled with a colourful kaleidoscope of restaurants, wine bars, entertainment spots and retail shops. During the day, visitors can immerse themselves in discovering shops selling curios, souvenirs, art and craft and a variety of merchandise. But once the sun set, Clarke Quay turns into a huge night bazaar where visitors can be lost in a maze of dining and entertainment outlets.

And soon, the riveside promenade will soon be rejuvenated along with the development of Canninghill Piers and Canninghill Square, an integrated development that occupies the former Liang Court site.

Robertson Quay - It used o be one of the three largest wharfs along the Singapore River along with Boat Quay and Clarke Quay. But since the 1990s, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) started to repurpose the area for hotel, commercial and residential developments.

Today, it has been transformed into a vibrant destination filled with restaurants, pubs, cafes, upmarket condominiums, offices and recreational facilities. One of its most distinctive landmarks is the Alkaff Bridge that has been turned into a colourful piece of art.

At night, it is a gem of an entertainment spot by the Singapore River, offering a tranquil ambience for an intimate meal or drink with family or friends. Unsurprisingly, it has attracted a flourishing community of expatriates and locals into the neighbourhood.

Fort Canning Park - An iconic hilltop landmark that was previously home to 14th-century kings' palaces and later served as the Far East Command Centre and British Army Barracks. The decision to surrender Singapore to the Japanese on 15 February 1942 was also made on the hill in the Underground Far East Command Centre commonly known as Battle Box.

But today, Fort Canning Park is home to nine historical gardens - the Pancur Larangan, Artisan’s Garden, Sang Nila Utama Garden, Jubilee Park, Raffles Garden, First Botanic Garden, Farquhar Garden, Spice Garden and Armenian Street Park.

More recently, a children playground has been added to the spaces once occupied by the River Valley Swimming Pool, Van Kleef Aquarium and the National Theatre. Known as Jubilee Park Playground, it has multiple swing sets, climbing nets, slides, see-saws, a log scramble for climbing and balancing, a “treehouse” that can be accessed by a rope bridge and a sandpit.

Singapore Botanic Gardens - Established in 1859, it is the oldest garden in Singapore. With an area of 74-hectares, it was inscribed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site on 4 July 2015. Besides being a place for leisure and recreation, its mission is to provide botanical and horticultural support for the Singapore’s greening efforts, a centre for plant taxonomic and biodiversity research, as well as an educational attraction.

One of its highlights is The National Orchid Garden. Located on its highest hill, the three hectares of carefully landscaped slopes is home to more than 1,000 species and 2,000 hybrids, with about 600 species and hybrids on display.

Jervois Mansion - At the Fringe of Central Business District (CBD)

Marina Bay Financial Centre

Marina Bay Financial Centre

With Jervois Mansion located at the fringe of the Central Business District (CBD) and Singapore's financial centre, which is the world's fourth largest, they offer a strong catchement of existing tenants. As such, it will attract strong rental demand from expatriates and high-earning personnel looking to live near their offices.

This can be seen from newer developments around Jervois Road like Mon Jervois and Principal Garden. Completed in 2016 and 2018 respectively, they are commanding an average rental yield of about 3.2%.

Hence, for a premium development like Jervois Mansion, it is expected to perform equally well, if not better, as many of the properties in the area are rather dated.

 

Major Transformation - The Greater Southern Waterfront

Greater Southern Waterfront

Greater Southern Waterfront

Jervois Mansion will also benefit from the transformation of the Greater Southern Waterfront (GSW), which is just a short 8 minutes drive away.

First announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong at the 2013 National Day Rally, the Greater Southern Waterfront will comprise 30km of coastline stretching from Gardens by the Bay East all the way to Pasir Panjang. This will cover a land area of 2,000ha, twice the size of Punggol and six times the size of Marina Bay or approximately 465 Padangs (fields) combined.

The mega transformation will include the following:

Development of more leisure, recreational and entertainment amenities
Development of waterfront promenades and green corridors
Job creation through its live-work-play initiative
When completed, it will bring more buzz and vibrancy not only to the to the GSW, but also its surrounding areas. Hence, this will add to the investment appeal of Jervois Mansion given their close proximity.

 

Public Transportation

The nearest MRT station will be Great World along the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL). Set to be completed by this year, it is about 13 minutes walk from Jervois Mansion. From there, the Orchard and Outram stations are just one and two stops away respectively. As the Outram station is an interchange between the East-West (EWL), Northeast (NEL) and Thomson-East Coast (TEL) lines, it will offer added commuting convenience.

Many of these buses will take commuters directly to Orchard Road, Central Business District and other Downtown areas.

Review Conclusion - An Investment Perspective

At the launch of Jervois Mansion on 16 october 2021, units were sold at an average price of $2,346 psf, or between $2,241 psf to $2,898 psf. This is extremely attractive when compared to the Irwell Hill Residences, a 99-year leasehold development just 1 km away at River Valley Road launched in April at an average price of $2,700 psf. Nearby, the 8 St Thomas and Avenir which are freehold developments, are selling at average prices above $3,000 psf at that time.

Although the Great World MRT station is 13 minutes' walk away, which may not be considered the most convenenient for many, this has not deterred buyers as 98% of the units put on sale were snapped up. One mitigating factor is that the bus-stops along River Valley Road are mere minutes away. Moreover, many of the buses will take residents directly to the Central Business District and Orchard Road, as well as most of Singapore's Downtown areas like City Hall and Bugis a short ride away.
