Singapore – GuocoLand Limited announced the development concept of Lentor Modern. Located among the tranquil landed estates and nature area, Lentor Modern will be the first and only integrated mixed-use development to be built in the area.

Lentor Modern is situated on a 1.7-hectare site surrounded by various parks and reservoirs in the vicinity. It comprises three 25-storey residential towers above a mall with more than 96,000 square feet of F&B and retail shops, a 12,000 square feet supermarket and a 10,000 square feet childcare centre. The development is directly integrated with Lentor MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line.

Lentor Modern’s 605 residences offer layouts of 1- to 4-bedroom units. The 2- to 4-bedroom units all come with an additional Flex Room. Residents can enjoy the verdant greenery within and around the integrated development, as well as unblocked views of the nature parks or low-rise landed homes in the area.

Mr Cheng Hsing Yao, Chief Executive Officer of GuocoLand, said: “One of GuocoLand’s core capabilities is to transform neighbourhoods with our mixed-use developments, demonstrated through Guoco Tower at Tanjong Pagar and the upcoming Guoco Midtown on Beach Road. Our vision is for Lentor Modern to transform and redefine the Lentor area into an upscale and attractive residential and lifestyle destination.”

People’s lifestyle needs have evolved, and having an additional flexible space that can serve a variety of functions is very useful. Thus, in addition to the typical bedrooms, a versatile Flex Room has been incorporated in all 2- to 4-bedroom units. The dimensions of the Flex Room are carefully designed so that it can be used in a variety of ways to suit different needs. For example, the Flex Room can be used as nursery or playroom, a study room, a walk-in wardrobe, a small guest bedroom, or workshop for home-based entrepreneurs.

Lentor Modern takes inspiration from two earlier luxury developments in GuocoLand’s “Modern” series – Martin Modern which debuted in 2017, and Midtown Modern which was launched in 2021. With its “Modern” series of residences, GuocoLand has defined a modern luxury lifestyle through the use of architecture that is timeless and classic, efficient and adaptable layouts that supports living, working and entertaining at home, a strong focus on wellness through accessibility to nature, and shared amenities to promote social activities. Similar to Midtown Modern, Lentor Modern provides an elevated level of convenience and connectivity by being directly linked to an integrated mall and MRT station.

Ms Dora Chng, General Manager (Residential) of GuocoLand, said: “Being part of the Lentor Modern integrated mixed-use development means residents can enjoy a host of amenities with just one lift ride. Just by taking the lift down from their homes, they can reach the MRT station, or be at a cafe, drop their children off at the childcare centre, be at the supermarket to restock their pantries, and more. And with direct access to the Thomson-East Coast MRT line, residents can be in Orchard Road or Marina Bay with just one train ride. At the same time, residents can enjoy the green sanctuary within the condominium and utilise the available facilities to support their hybrid work arrangements.”

Lentor Modern’s project and landscape architects are ADDP Architects and Ortus Design, respectively. Each well-appointed unit comes with high-quality appliances from Smeg and luxurious sanitary wares from Hansgrohe and Roca.

Expected to be completed in 2026, Lentor Modern will be the first private condominium launch in the Lentor neighbourhood in more than two decades. Lentor Modern’s show gallery will be opened for preview from 2 September 2022.
