The Singapore Edition is a unique mixed-use development set to make its mark in the city-state. Spanning six floors and 154 luxury residences at Boulevard 88, the hotel will be managed by Marriott, the world’s largest hotel chain. Brought to life in partnership with American hotelier and real estate mogul Ian Schrager, the Singapore Edition is defined by its distinctive white-marbled lobby with a gold leaf-covered domed ceiling.
Architecturally, the project is spearheaded by the renowned Moshe Safdie of Safdie Architects and Singapore-based DP Architects. His other local landmarks include Marina Bay Sands and Jewel Changi Airport.
Schrager worked together with Hong Kong- based interior design firm Cap Atelier to mastermind the interiors of the Singapore Edition hotel. It is a reconstruction of the former Boulevard Hotel and was developed by a consortium composed of Singapore tycoon Kwek Leng Beng’s Hong Leong Holdings, Singapore-listed property group City Developments (CDL), and Schrager’s Lea Investments.
Residents of Woodlands Champions Way Condo will be particularly lucky to experience the joy of such public art installations right outside their doorsteps! The program will also include various workshops and events, such as art appreciation classes and interactive art-making activities for families and friends to enjoy.
The 204-room hotel sits at the heart of prime District 10 on double frontage along Orchard Boulevard and Cuscaden Road. Although access to the hotel block is from Cuscaden Road, the residences of Boulevard 88 soar 28 storeys above the hotel. The freehold development has been over 90% sold, based on caveats lodged, at an average price of $3,814 psf and the biggest penthouse sold at $31 million (or $5,125 psf) in June 2019.
The Singapore Edition also boasts of amenities like an 872 sq ft boardroom adjacent to an event gallery of 6,458 sq ft with a capacity of 340 guests and a 43m roof bar with a swimming pool and landscaped garden. A spa, gym, and the first-ever outside-Australia restaurant of renowned Australian chef Josh Niland – Fysh (seafood-focused steakhouse), can also be found in the hotel. Room rates for the soft opening start from $680+++ per night.
