Live to Eat at Gem Residences
Toa Payoh is a neighbourhood rich in heritage – as Singapore’s second oldest satellite town, it’s set the stage for all future heartland towns. While many of Toa Payoh’s stories are told by landmarks like the dragon playground, its swimming complex and many places of worship, another important part of the local heritage is its food.
From time-honoured establishments like Lee Fun Nam Kee, which traces its roots to a hawker who sold chicken rice in the area from his tricycle in the 1960s, to modern hipster cafes, Toa Payoh is a haven for foodies. In fact, when accounting for all that there is to eat in the neighbourhood, one guide simply doesn’t cut it – we’ve written four. We’ve covered Toa Payoh’s best hawkers, Toa Payoh’s best cafes and restaurants, the best of Toa Payoh Central and the best of Toa Payoh overall. Want to enjoy all the delights that Toa Payoh has to offer as part of your daily life? Then make sure you stop by the Gem Residences showroom weekend on 20-22 May, 10am-8pm.
Currently one of Singapore’s most talked-about residential developments, Gem Residences was designed with foodies in mind. At Gem Residences, having all the food in Toa Payoh literally at your doorstep is just the beginning; owners at the condominium will also have access to unique services designed for those who live to eat.
Imagine a home where you can easily pick up the phone and do everything from requesting to hire a private chef for special occasions, have the concierge take care of food deliveries from your favourite hawker stall or cafe, making restaurant reservations in Singapore and abroad, and grocery shopping services. For the home cook, Gem Residences is a dream: eight outdoor cooking areas, a dedicated teppanyaki dining pavilion, edible and herb gardens on-site, regular baking demonstrations; that’s what you can expect as a Gem Residences owner.
This weekend, Gem Residences will unveil their show units for the first time along with release prices in a move that deviates from the norm. The current industry practice is for developers to price according to interest at booking, with individual requested unit prices revealed at ballot. This move will allow Gem Residences buyers to compare prices across the whole development and provide buyers with more transparency and time to make informed decisions. Despite its popularity, the condominium – jointly developed by the Gamuda, Evia Real Estate and Maxdin Pte Ltd – will go for sale at an overall average price of $1,426 per square feet (psf).
The Gem Residences showroom weekend will offer a preview of the lifestyle you can expect at the property with fun activities for the whole family. Expect everything from baking and dancing demonstrations, bouncy castles, jugglers, magicians, face painting to keep the kids entertained and lots of yummy goodies, hot dogs, pop corn, candy floss, ice cream and muffins so you get a full feel of the Gem Residences lifestyle.
