Singapore – City Developments Limited’s (CDL) Gramercy Park has been named ‘Best Residential Development (Gold)’ at the MIPIM Asia Awards 2016 ceremony held on 30 November 2016 at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Hong Kong. 

Gramercy Park is a new luxurious freehold residential development with an exclusive address along Grange Road in District 10, one of Singapore’s most desired and prestigious neighbourhoods. A stroll away from the famous Orchard Road shopping district, the 174-unit Gramercy Park is also the latest landmark to join embassies and Good Class Bungalows in the area.

Mr Grant Kelly, CDL Chief Executive Officer, said: “Over the years, CDL has developed many iconic projects that shaped the skyline and set new benchmarks for urban living. It is an honour for Gramercy Park to be recognised as the best-in-class for residential property development. Besides its enviable address, Gramercy Park stands out with its unique sculptural design. It also sits on an expansive freehold site of about 170,000 square feet in the prime District 10, which is extremely rare in land scarce Singapore.”

The sleek modern façade of Gramercy Park’s two curvilinear towers makes it a statement piece synonymous with the prestigious Grange Road neighbourhood. Beyond aesthetics, the façade’s high performance low-emissivity double-glazed vision glass and sun-shading fritted glass panels minimise heat penetration, reducing energy needed to cool the interiors.

Combining sophisticated linear minimalism and the opulent gardens of Ficus “Green Gem” luxury resorts, Gramercy Park’s landscape features plants with upright and stately linear forms and free-flowering gingers as framing accents. At the heart of the expansive estate sits a perfectly manicured Grand Lawn, which is beautifully illuminated come nightfall. Mirroring in symmetry, a 50-metre Grand Pool lies alongside, while a lush Wooded Trail completes the vista.
