Live-Work-Play-Relax … at City Gate

World Class Land, a trusted Singaporean property developer, unites its efforts with the Fragrance Group of Companies, in bringing forth City Gate. City Gate is an upcoming collection of distinctive living spaces, as well as commercial spaces to shape the business landscape, all in the heart of the metropolis. The 99-year leasehold will be a 30-storey high-rise condominium at the corner of Jalan Sultan and Beach Road, overlooking the District 7 neighborhood and the Kallang Basin. With a design that is the brainchild of SAA Architects, it will have 25 levels of deluxe residences, as well as a commercial podium in the first 3 floors. Its target completion date is within the fourth quarter of 2019.

Living Choices at City Gate
City Gate has a total of 311 residential apartments, from one-bedroom types to brilliantly laid-out penthouses. The available units are as follows: 

- 1BR apartment (Floor area: Between 442 and 452 sq. ft.)
- 2BR apartment (560 to 570 sq. ft.)
- 2BR dualkey unit (678 to 1,066 sq. ft.)
- 3BR dual key unit (904 to 915 sq. ft.)
- 1BR penthouse (approx.. 484 sq. ft.)
- 3BR penthouse (807 to 1,464 sq. ft.)
- 4BR penthouse (1,604 to 1,819 sq. ft.)

To compliment your luxurious living spaces, there will also be a parking plaza for the residential tower, with 300 slots plus 3 with handicap access.

Leisure Offerings and Play Amenities
City Gate has an assemblage of private recreational conveniences, exclusively for the occupants of the residential tower. These facilities occupy two whole floors – the sixth floor and the topmost level.

On the sixth floor will be a refreshing indoor facility with the combined atmosphere of a wellness resort and an eco park. It’s designed to contain a swimming pool that comes complete with a jet pool, a spa pool, an aqua lounge, and a pool deck. It will also have tranquil hangout areas, reading corners, lounge areas, and various pavilions, as well as a reflexology path and a fitness garden. For the children, there will be a kiddie pool and a sand box.

To allow you to forge relationships, the sixth level will even feature several group areas. That includes an al fresco dining pavilion, a picnic pavilion, a barbecue area, a party area, and a function room that you can rent for your events. The entire area will be fringed with lovely greenery, including landscaped shrubbery, a tree grove, a bamboo grove, and manicured corner gardens.
Even more amenities will be available on the 24th level, which is designed to be a sky park with a breathtaking panorama of the city. Look to the north and you will be charmed by the Kampong Glam skyline. Toward the east, you will find the waterscapes of the Kallang Basin. Toward the south is the Marina Reservoir. From this vantage point, you may also behold Marina Bay, Kallang Riverside, and Tanjong Rhu.

Aside from the wonderful viewing decks, the 24th-floor sky park will also have a slew of health facilities such as a meditation deck, a relaxation deck, a yoga corner, an indoor gym, an outdoor gym, and a fitness area. There will also be water features, pocket gardens, a putting green and a floral sanctuary. For even more bonding time with your loved ones, there are the gourmet dining area, the teppanyaki grill, and the pavilions.

The City Gate Mall
The development’s three lowermost floors are designed to be a commercial podium, with 157 retail shops, 29 restaurants and eateries, a supermarket, and a spacious food court that spans over 4,000 square feet. This commercial area provides a double delight for City Gate residents. First of all, it offers unparalleled convenience in shopping and dining. There’s no need to ride across the city to grab a bite or buy your needs. You simply need to take the elevator!

Secondly, it offers an opportunity for you to expand your business. Do you dreams of opening a retail store or a boutique? A coffee shop, or a hawker stall, perhaps? You can open one right there, and you can have the pleasure of working in the same building as you live. You can choose from the following:
- Shop unit (floor area: from 280 to 721 sq ft)
- Restaurant / food and beverage unit (452 to 1,044 sq ft)
- Food court stall

You can kiss the rush hour traffic good-bye! Plus, as City Gate occupies a corner lot on Beach Road and Jalan Sultan, its mall will be a sure hive for potential customers. The commercial podium will also have 113 parking slots for visitors, plus 3 for handicapped guests.

The Exceptional Location
Beach Road in District 7 is right within the Singapore metropolis, so you won’t have a problem commuting or driving if you work in the CBD or Marina Bay. Clarke Quay and Raffles City are very close by. Furthermore, the AYE, the CTE, and the ECP are just minutes away, providing island-wide access.

The Nicoll Highway MRT Station is conveniently nearby, being just a short walk away. City Gate will even have a covered walkway leading up to the station.

Just close by are a lot of places to make your life even more convenient. There are malls like the Concourse and Suntec City Mall; Bugis Street and Orchard Road are just an easy drive away. Also in the area is North Bridge Road Market and Food Centre, Millenia Walk, Kampong Glam Community Club, and Raffles Hospital.

City Gate is nicely situated between two growing townships that are presently being expanded to become commercial and leisure hotspots, namely Kampong Glam and Kallang Riverside Park. This of course means proximity to even more recreation centres, retail shops, restaurants, offices, and others, all within a 2-kilometer radius. Kallang Riverside itself is the site of the new, world-class Singapore Sports Hub, which is set to contain a wealth of sports facilities and community recreational areas. Not only that – this means an upsurge in property values. If you should choose to rent out your unit, it also means generous returns as well as a huge number of potential occupants

Nearby Schools
City Gate is quite near to a lot of schools, some of which are quality private institutions; there are even some international schools. 

Primary schools within the area include Saint Margaret’s, Stamford, Farrer Park Primary, Alsagoff Arab School, Geylang Methodist, River Valley, and Hong Wen.
The secondary schools are Raffles Girls’ School, St. Andrew’s, Bendemeer Secondary, Chung Cheng High School, Madrasah Aljunied Islamic School, Beatty Secondary, Outram Secondary, and First Toa Payoh.
