A new kind of luxe
“Martin Modern is in the heart of the city but the moment you cross the main gate, past the mystical driveway to the arrival porch, you will be transported into a tranquil and enchanted garden.”
GuocoLand Singapore’s group managing director Cheng Hsing Yao.
At Martin Modern, over 80 per cent of the land area is reserved for a botanic garden and an arboretum of more than 200 plant species and more than 50 species of trees and palms. The vast acreage will feature 15 different spaces including a party lawn, forest trail, rain gardens and a green maze. This garden is spread across three levels, leveraging the site’s 10-metre upward slope from one end to the other.
The enchanting garden epitomises tranquility at Martin Modern, which at the same time finds lifestyle amenities within reach in the nearby Orchard, Robertson Quay and Clarke Quay. Besides its expansive garden concept, Martin Modern will also have bespoke recreational facilities and offer GuocoLand’s concierge services.
The downtown core, Singapore’s business epicentre, is just five minutes’ away by car and less than 10 minutes by train or cycling. River taxi services at the Singapore River offer another unique way of commuting between the precinct and the CBD.
Those looking for a work-out can cycle or jog along the Singapore River promenade, Fort Canning Park and Alexandra Park Connector or go for one of those numerous yoga, pilates and fitness studios that have sprung up in the vicinity.
Families with children can enjoy the project’s proximity to established schools such as River Valley Primary School, School of the Arts and Singapore Management University. Art and cultural connoisseurs are not left out too – the nearby Civic District is home to Singapore’s most historic buildings, museums, concert halls, and art galleries.
Delectable cuisines can be found in restaurants, wine bars, and trendy bistros over at Robertson Quay. This myriad of F&B offerings is further enhanced by the opening of new lifestyle hotels including Warehouse Hotel and M Social and the upcoming “Quayside Project” by RB Capital that will host 100,000 square feet of lifestyle retail.
“For Martin Modern, we studied the neighbourhood, terrain, views and the spirit of the place,” says Mr Cheng. “We also looked at the market and knew it is timely to introduce a more progressive form of luxury.”
