The Visionaire EC | New Canberra EC Launch

Visionary . Lifestyle . Convenience . The Visionaire EC @ Canberra MRT Station

The Visionaire EC is a new Executive Condominium opening for sale in April 2016. This Canberra EC is likely to be popular. Firstly, Visionaire will be the 1st Smart Home EC in Singapore.

It will incorporate the infrastructure now, to enable you to stay connected with, monitor, and control your home from anywhere in future, via your mobile device. See the exciting details of what to expect in a Smart Home here: Visionaire executive condo.

Secondly, it is right beside the Brownstone, that has been the best-selling EC in Singapore since its launch in mid 2015.

In fact, some unit types at the Brownstone are already sold out or have only limited choices left. So the launch of the Visionaire EC presents a chance for those who missed out earlier, to get an executive condominium unit within a short walk of Canberra MRT station.


The Visionaire EC · Design

The Visionaire executive condo has one of the most interesting designs on the market. The site layout consists of just 2 rows of blocks strung out right across the site, with almost all the pools and facilities between them. Simple but effective.

The north-facing units in the north block overlook the greenery of the old Admiralty House, that will be transformed into the Sembawang Sports & Recreation Hub. Allows good wind flow too.

This Canberra EC itself will only be 9 to 11 storeys high, giving it a low density feel, that matches the laid back feel of its surrounding, not far from Sembawang Park and the sea.


The Visionaire EC · Canberra EC Location

The Visionaire EC is located at the corner of Canberra Drive, Sembawang Road, and Canberra Link, about 400m, or 5 minutes walk, from the upcoming Canberra MRT station.

Very few ECs are within 5 minutes walk of an MRT station. Those that are, are pretty much sold out, except for the remaining units at The Brownstone next door.

For private condominiums, the price between a unit that is within 5 minutes walk of an MRT station, vs those outside walking radius, is at least 15% higher.

As the Visionaire EC will be sold at pretty much the same price as other executive condos that require a feeder bus or LRT ride to an MRT point, it means that the upside potential is greater.

Visionaire Executive Condo | Smart Homes

In a ground breaking move Qingjian Realty, the developer for the Visionaire executive condo, has partnered with Samsung Asia to incorporate smart technology into its developments, as and when the products become available.

Samsung provides a Smart Home service whereby their home devices are connected. Homeowners can use this to control their home appliances remotely, such as air-conditioners, refrigerator, robot cleaner, and washing machine, through just a touch on their smartphones or gear devices, while still at the office or on the way home.

Smart Home + 10 Potential Devices (subject to final provision at developer’s discretion)

The Visionaire Executive Condo :: Smart Home Devices

The Visionaire Executive Condo :: Smart Home Devices

Qingjian plans to offer a number of these features in its upcoming Visionaire executive condo, that will launch in April 2016. As part of the deal, buyers for this Canberra EC will also be able to buy the Samsung appliances at preferential rates.

August 2020 Update: When Qingjian introduced Smart Homes in Visionaire in 2016, it was indeed a very forward-looking move. Fast forward to 2020, it is now pretty commonplace, and offered to a greater or lesser degree in practically all the new launches. From the Atelier condo to Wilshire Residences, Leedon Green, the Forett condo, Linq at Beauty World, Marina One Residences, the Iveria condo, and so on.


Visionaire Executive Condo · Smart Proofing the Future

In expectation of ever advancing technology, Qingjian intends to “future-proof” its new developments by integrating into them now, the necessary infrastructure to ensure that they are smart device-ready. This will enable their home buyers to plug into a smart home immediately.

According to Li Jun, General Manager of Qingjian, their aim is to “…start anticipating and building today the smart Qingjian home that you will be receiving the keys to in three to five years. One that already has the latest technology and infrastructure to integrate with your smart lifestyle at that point in time.

Qingjian is believed to be the 1st developer in Singapore to incorporate these features into its projects on such a comprehensive scale. But it is not content with that; going forwards, it hopes to take the technology further, and to leverage on the Internet of Things (IoT) to enable even better integration of technology for their home buyers.

Qingjian is arguably the biggest developer of executive condominiums in Singapore, and has launched over 5,000 residential units covering both private and executive condos. So it stands in a good position to tap technology and push new frontiers for its launches in Singapore.

The Visionaire Floor Plans | CoSpace . Space Made Smarter

Qingjian Realty will be offering its innovative CoSpace concept in the Visionaire floor plans as well. This unique concept lets homeowners make efficient use of their space, by allowing them to customise the space according to their needs, at different stages of their lives.

For example, you can convert the study and utility room into a full sized room or SOHO. Or you can tweak it into a study area for the kids, or a baby room, or storeroom with cabinets, or an entertainment or playroom, or even an extra bedroom.

Not many other projects offers this flexibility of layout. The closest a new launch comes to this is at the M, where homes can be quickly turned into home offices with movable furniture. Another type of flexibility is at Leedon Green, which allows creation of bigger units by merging smaller units. However only certain 12th floor units at Leedon Green offer this option, and the merged units still retain their individual title deeds, thus incurring the ABSD on the 2nd unit as well.


The Visionaire Floor Plans . CoSpace . 3 Key Components

The COSPACE concept hinges on 3 key inter-dependent components: CoSpace Efficiency, CoSpace Flexibility and CoSpace Interactivity.

The Visionaire Floor Plans CoSpace Concept

CoSpace Efficiency is to maximise the space to the fullest, making every inch count. Cospace Flexibility allows you to create spaces that suit your lifestyle at each stage of your life. CoSpace Interactivity enables you to enjoy spaces that interact freely with each other.

For instance, a newlywed couple could initially use the space as a home entertainment room, change it into an infant room, evolve it to become a playroom, then a study, and eventually an extra bedroom or walk-in wardrobe.


The Visionaire Floor Plans . CoSpace . Implementation

Qingjian rolled out the CoSpace concept at River Isles condo, refined it at its Ecopolitan EC, fine-tuned it at Bellewoods EC, and enhanced it at Bellewaters EC.

The idea has proven a hit with homebuyers. Over 40% of purchasers have chosen the optional layout and embraced the CoSpace concept. See report. (Opens in new window.)

A typical CoSpace Flexi unit comes with no floor tiles, wardrobes, or doors. This could mean a cheaper unit in the initial purchase stage, making it more affordable for cash strapped buyers. And later, as they accumulate more funds, they can then spend it customising the space to their own content.

The Visionaire Executive Condo . Location Overview

The Visionaire Executive Condo · Amenities

You don’t have to travel far from the Visionaire EC for all your needs. It is surrounded by hawker centres, cafes, restaurants, and shopping malls with supermarkets, banks, shops, etc.

North Point City :: Mega Shopping Mall at Yishun MRT Station :: One stop from the Visionaire Executive CondoArtist’s Impression :: NorthPoint City :: Mega Mall one MRT stop from Visionaire EC

There are many schools around too, with Sembawang Primary School and Wellington Primary School both within a 1km radius, as well as the upcoming GEMS World Academy Singapore.

Medical care and emergencies are well supported, with the Khoo Teck Puat Hospital & Yishun Community Hospital nearby, that will be joined by more healthcare facilities in the future.

On a side note, if being within walking distance of a major shopping centre appeals to you, you might want to consider the Piermont Grand as well. This is not in Sembawang but located in Punggol, but the same principles of connectivity and convenience to amenities hold true. In the case of Piermont Grand executive condo however, it is about 11 minutes walk to Waterway Point and Punggol MRT station on the North-East line.

Piermont Grand also has the advantage of water views. It directly fronts onto the Punggol Waterway, with pocket views to Punggol River. This project is being developed by a brand name developer, City Developments, which gives it an edge over Visionaire EC for the brand conscious. The Piermont Grand EC showflat will open for sale in mid 2019.


The Visionaire Executive Condo · Connectivity

The Visionaire executive condo is located just a 5 minute walk to the Canberra MRT station (under construction), which makes it roughly a 25-minute train ride to the CBD after it is completed in 2019.

It is also connected to some of Singapore’s major highways, like the Seletar Expressway and Central Expressway.

Adding to this site’s connectivity are upcoming projects like the Yishun integrated transport hub (to be completed in 2019), new roads leading directly from Yishun to the Seletar Aerospace Park, a new North-South Expressway (NSE), and a proposed Rapid Transit System (RTS) linking Woodlands to Johor Bahru.


The Visionaire Executive Condo · The Transformation

The north of Singapore is on the brink of a new burst of life. Within 10 minutes walk and close to the Sembawang Shopping Centre (click here), Jalan Legundi, once a cluster of homely eateries, is now an up-and-coming lifestyle enclave with vibrant new cafes and even a baking school.

Active residents can enjoy fun-filled days (and nights) at the brand new 24-hour park Orto, that offers activities round the clock.

Orto Park at Sembawang :: Near the Visionaire ECThe Orto Park at Sembawang . Near the Visionaire Executive Condominium

There will be even more to look forward to in the coming years, with possible plans for an integrated wildlife park in neighbouring Mandai, and with the plans to transform the nearby Woodlands region into a vibrant commercial hub by 2017.

With so much going on here, the north looks set to take off as Singapore’s next hottest neighbourhood.
