A Fresh Twist to City-Fringe Living

The bright city lights, the vivifying energy of enjoyment, and the contented comforts of a home to call your own – these all come together in The Citron.

The Citron is an upcoming development in dynamic District 8, featuring both a residential component and a commercial podium. Situated at 1 Marne Road corner Petain Road, the freehold enterprise is set to perk up the neighborhood with its numerous lifestyle and leisure offerings.
Its strategic suburban location allows it to have distinct advantages. For instance, it’s nicely set apart from the busyness of the city, but still conveniently near the CBD. The site is just a few steps away from the Farrer Park MRT Station, enabling a hassle-free commute down the North-East line. It also takes but a quick drive to the Pan-Island Expressway, the Central Expressway, or the East Coast Parkway.

The Citron is surrounded by a colorful neighborhood with rich cultural tones and a flair for modern sophistication. It’s right in the midst of popular landmarks such as the City Hall, Bugis Street, Little India, and the new Connexion. The CBD, Marina Bay, Orchard Road, and Kallang Riverside are also just minutes away.

The Citron Residences

The Citron’s residential component, known as The Citron Residences, will offer a fresh twist to city-fringe living. To begin, you can expect well-appointed interiors wrapped in a handsome exterior architecture. And unlike most densely-packed condominiums, it will contain only 54 homes, keeping unnecessary noise and crowding to a minimum. You can thus look forward to quieter, calmer days in your new home.

The development also endeavors to accommodate residents from various walks of life. Perhaps you’re a career-minded single with a job at the CBD, or maybe you’re earning your degree at Singapore Management Institute. Naturally, it would be advantageous for you to find a cozy pad somewhere in the area to lessen your travel time. The studio flat is just perfect for you. All studio units at The Citron Residences have a floor area between 512 and 566 square feet, allowing you enough room for what matters to you. No cramped shoebox units here!

Perhaps you’re a young couple planning a future together. Or an older couple whose children have all moved out, and you’re looking for an easy-to-maintain investment unit. You can opt for a one-bedroom apartment that spans from 670 to 900 square feet.

Maybe you already have growing children, or you have one on the way. Consider making your home in a two-bedroom unit. These two-bedroom homes also have two bathrooms, and are from 996 to over 1,100 square feet.

To put a dash of zest into your life, the building will have an open roofdeck with an array of exclusive facilities for all residents to relish in. You’ll have a sensuous swimming pool where you can refresh yourself on a warm day, and a pool deck where you can soak up the sun. Ease away the stress of a hectic work day at the hot tub, or cool off at the covered pavilion. There will also be a children’s wading pool, a barbecue area, a pergola, an open-air dining terrace, and some refreshing pocket gardens.

Shopping and Dining Options Right at Home

The Citron brings pleasure and leisure right to your doorstep – all you need is to go downstairs and enjoy yourself. The ground-storey shopping mall will feature 36 commercial units, which will all be filled with retail stores or eateries.

If you’re a business owner, you may want to set up shop here as well. “Working from home” will be very possible for you – no traffic jams, no bus rides, and lots of free time. Given the strategic location, you’re sure to attract customers passing on their way to Farrer Park.
