The former Normanton Park has a history going back to 1977, when it was developed by the Ministry of Defence to build esprit de crops among the Singapore Armed Forces officers.
The condominium is bordered by the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) and Kent Ridge Park to provide affordable housing for Singapore Armed Forces (SAF) commissioned officers and to build camaraderie among them.
It was designed and built by the HDB in 1977, with 488 units of mainly five-room flats spread across five high-rise blocks. Eight three-storey blocks containing executive flats were also built on the plot of more than 632,000 sq ft.
Normanton Park was sold en-bloc for $830.1 million to Kingsford Huray Development in October 2017. The site will be redeveloped to a brand new condominium named One Normanton Park. With more than 1,000 units planned, one can expect a wide range of facilities for residents to indulge in.
Set in a quiet enclave that’s accessible but also exclusive, the Normanton Park area offers a unique experience unlike any other. Near the city and many places steeped in culture & heritage, it also has access to Singapore’s nature, e.g. Hortpark, Mount Faber, Sentosa & Labrador park amongst others.
One Normanton Park sits just off the AYE, which provides good accessibility to CBD, One North, Fusionpolis, Biopolis, Mapletree Business City, Mediapolis, Harbourfront Centre, National University Hospital, National University of Singapore and Jurong Lake District.
Nestled beside this urban dwelling is Kent Ridge Park for the nature lover in you. It is a 47-hectare public park located in Kent Ridge, Singapore, between the National University of Singapore and the Singapore Science Park. Due to its undisturbed habitat and abundant plant life, it is a popular venue for bird-watchers and eco-tourists. Kent Ridge Park is part of the Southern Ridges, which also comprises Mount Faber Park, Telok Blangah Hill Park, HortPark and Labrador Nature Reserve.
