Emerging as a charming new town near Yio Chu Kang and Ang Mo Kio, Lentor captivates with its inviting allure. Situated in District 21, this picturesque locale boasts a rich history as a private landed enclave, nestled alongside the once dense Lentor-Tagore forest. Adding to its appeal, Lentor enjoys excellent connectivity, being serviced by the Thomson East Coast Line. This brown line runs adjacent to the North-South and East-West lines, seamlessly connecting residents to various parts of the city.
In recent times, many Govenment Land Sale(s) deals have taken place to produce an exciting lineup of future properties unveiled in this captivating area:
Before we begin the more in-depth look into Lentor Central’s Hillock Green review, we first need to consider who the main clientele of this condo development is.
Based on the September 2022 launch of Lentor Modern, Singaporeans constitute a significant 92% of the overall buyers, with permanent residents and foreigners comprising the remaining 8%. The majority of these buyers are primarily owner-occupiers, with a considerable proportion being upgraders from the HDB market.
It is highly probable that a similar scenario will unfold for Hillock Green and its adjacent forthcoming developments such as Lentor Hills Residences and Lentor Gardens. Those who were unable to partake in the initial excitement will now have a fresh opportunity to acquire a one or two-bedroom apartment that is now sold out at Lentor Modern.
If we delve deeper into the demographics, it becomes apparent that families form the primary clientele for Hillock Green Central condominium. This can be attributed to various factors, including its classification as an affordable private housing option suitable for Singaporean families, as well as its advantageous proximity to a plethora of amenities, reputable schools, and the nearby Lentor MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast line.
Now that we’ve gotten past the main key features and main target audience of this new condo launch, it’s time to dive deeper into each of our main considerations.
Hillock Green is located conveniently for those who use the MRT as their main mode of transport, being just a short 3-5-minute stroll away from Lentor MRT on the Thomson-East Coast Line. While it may not offer the same level of direct access to the MRT station as Lentor Modern or the mere 2-minute proximity of Lentor Hills Residences, the distance is still comfortably manageable.
From the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), future residents of Hillock Green enjoy seamless connectivity to multiple lines, expanding their commuting options. They can effortlessly hop onto the Circle Line via Caldecott (CC17/TE9), connect to the North-South Line through Orchard (NS22/TE14), access the Downtown Line via Stevens (DT10/TE11), and even reach the North-East Line via Outram Park (NE3/EW16/TE17). This network of interconnected lines opens up a world of possibilities for convenient travel throughout the city.
Hillock Green boasts convenient access to the North-South Corridor, which is slated for completion in 2027. This expansive transit corridor is set to become Singapore’s longest, seamlessly linking the northern region to the bustling city centre. Equipped with dedicated bus lanes, cycling trunk routes, and pedestrian pathways, this extensive 21.5km corridor is expected to significantly reduce travel times by a remarkable 10 to 15 minutes.
Nevertheless, it is worth noting that this development, while providing excellent connectivity, is not the closest option to the city centre. During peak hours, the journey by car from Hillock Green to the central business district (CBD) office area is projected to take no less than 30 minutes, and potentially up to an hour.
At Lentor Central’s Hillock Green, residents are granted convenient access to the expansive 96,000 square feet of retail space within Lentor Modern. This bustling mall serves as a one-stop destination, catering to a wide range of resident needs. However, the choices are somewhat limited when it comes to alternative options beyond Lentor Modern that is within walking distance of this Lentor condominium development.
For those seeking additional shopping mall destinations, the closest malls include Jubilee Mall, Broadway Plaza, Djitsun Mall, and AMK Hub. These retail malls are situated approximately 10 minutes away by car or a reasonable 25 minutes by public transportation, which is not necessarily as convenient and near as some might hope for.
The encompassing retail haven at Lentor Modern also features an array of cafes and restaurants, ensuring that residents enjoy a diverse range of F&B options within a comfortably air-conditioned environment.
However, as previously established, the primary clientele anticipated for Hillock Green is expected to be Singaporean. Given the significance of hawker food in the Singaporean lifestyle, relying solely on the F&B establishments within Lentor Modern’s retail space may not be the ideal choice for the average resident. Consequently, it is worth noting that the nearest hawker centre is approximately a 10-minute walk away. Although easily reachable on foot, it may not offer the level of convenience that many residents would prefer.
