The River Valley Area is situated precisely in the south of Orchard Road and therefore is also close to famous locations such as Grange Road, River Valley Road, Jiak Kim Street and Robertson Quay. Advantages of living here are indeed numerous and include of course the quality of newly-built housings, the closeness to the city’s best shopping options, entertainment, comfortable access to various education and sports facilities, and availability of A-grade business centers and other commercial properties for rent. There is an eclectic fusion of people in this area, although the majority are well-off locals and expatriates. Even though there is mostly concrete jungle, there are, like in most neighborhoods of Singapore, an astonishing number of quiet, green sites scattered around the city. You can rent an office in a real sanctuary where you can admire magnificent views of Singapore while doing your business without getting out of your inspiring working space.
Thanks to its central location, it is incredibly convenient to get to and from anywhere on the island. The Central Expressway is easily accessible, and links to the Ayer Rajah Expressway and the East Coast Parkway, which makes traveling to the west coast, the airport and the east coast very direct. There is also an upcoming station in the process of construction at Fort Canning. Conveniently, buses run frequently and reliably to and from the neighboring MRT stations, as well as to the City, Orchard Road, Great World City and beyond. Unfairly neglected means of transport in the city, but the one that is very convenient for River Valley residents is the river taxi service. The super-fast boat taxis are one of the cheapest and quickest ways of getting around.
River Valley attracts more and more businesses seeking to rent office space because it is located in a more affordable district compared to those prime ones. All this helps to attract both residents and business tenants, who can find business premises and apartments at more competitive rental rates. The area is transforming excessively, notably with two new MRT lines and future stations at Great World and Fort Canning. Also, the presence of Singapore River here means that upcoming projects will offer commercial and residential real estate with a waterfront view
The River Valley is a fabulous area not only to rent workspaces and reside but also to go out and have a wonderful time. It is easy and refreshing to go along the Singapore River from here to any of the city’s famous attractions and dining spots.
