The Reef at King’s Dock: Singapore’s First Floating Deck in a Residential Development
Mapletree and Keppel Land are jointly developing the highly-anticipated luxury waterfront project, The Reef at King’s Dock, which will open for preview from 16 January 2021.
The Reef at King’s Dock is a sustainable, next-generation luxury development for discerning urbanites which encompasses the convenience of city-living, the tranquillity of nature and the luxury of true waterfront living. The development is also rich in history, being located alongside King’s Dock, which was once the second-largest dock in the world when it opened in 1913.
Strategically located in the HarbourFront and Keppel Bay precincts, The Reef at King’s Dock is within the Greater Southern Waterfront, which the government plans to transform into a new major gateway for urban living along Singapore’s southern coast.
Future residents will appreciate The Reef at King’s Dock’s accessibility. The development is just a short stroll away from HarbourFront MRT station, minutes away from the central business district and Mapletree Business City, and well connected to other parts of Singapore. Residents can also look forward to indulging in various lifestyle, recreational and nature-centric experiences with the development’s proximity to a wide range of retail, dining and leisure amenities including VivoCity, Sentosa Island, Marina at Keppel Bay, Mount Faber and Labrador Nature Reserve. As part of the efforts to contribute to the Greater Southern Waterfront, Mapletree and Keppel will also be developing a public park in front of The Reef at King’s Dock which can be enjoyed by residents and members of the public.
The development will comprise 429 exclusive units, with an exquisite selection of one- to three-bedroom apartments with sizes spanning from 431 to 1572 square feet, spread across 10 residential blocks. Prices will start from around $960,000 for a 1- bedroom apartment, $1,600,000 for a 2-bedroom apartment and $2,800,000 for a 3- bedroom apartment.
The conceptualisation and design of The Reef at King’s Dock is led by master planner and architect, Kees Christiaanse, a visionary industry veteran and founder of KCAP Architects & Planners. KCAP is an award-winning international design firm known for the development of sustainable urban living environments that enliven and renew cities.
The Reef at King’s Dock will feature an interplay of building sizes to give the estate a private and spacious atmosphere. While metallic hues will be predominant in the development for the added shimmer against the sun and water reflections, the three distinct building types namely, the Courtyard Blocks, Garden Villas, and Urban Villas, will each boast individualised characters and colour palettes. Each building will also be intelligently oriented to facilitate natural ventilation as well as maximise scenic views.
With a full range of amenities including a state-of-the-art gymnasium, a tennis court, sky gardens, a children’s play zone, a fitness zone and function rooms, The Reef at King’s Dock offers residents an array of options for leisure activities.
The Reef at King’s Dock will feature Singapore’s first floating deck in a residential development, located within the waters of King’s Dock.
Spanning 180 metres, the iconic floating deck will house an ensemble of swimming pools—an Olympic-length pool, a leisure pool and a rejuvenation pool. The pools will provide swimmers with an extraordinary immersive experience—as though they are swimming within the waters of King’s Dock itself.
The floating deck will also give residents and visitors a unique perspective of King’s Dock and enable them to better appreciate its historical role and significance. In addition, the floating deck will house The Reef at King’s Dock’s very own marine viewing area where residents and visitors will be able to view and better appreciate the marine ecology in King’s Dock, thus further promoting environmental awareness and conservation.
Both Mapletree and Keppel are committed to upholding high standards of environmental stewardship and have worked with external experts to ensure the protection and preservation of the water quality and marine life in and around the waters of King’s Dock.
Bookings for The Reef at King’s Dock are scheduled to start from 30 January 2021, when the project is launched and the development is expected to be completed by 2025.
