With a diverse range of cultural and entertainment options and easy accessibility, it is no surprise Singapore’s central region is a popular pick among renters.
But what exactly constitutes the heart of Singapore? CP Residences, which offers trendy co-living properties in the two sections that make up the central region – the Core Central Region (CCR) and the Rest of Central Region (RCR) – breaks it down for you.
Core Central Region
Singapore’s CCR stretches from the city centre, which includes the Orchard and Bugis areas, to the Downtown Core where the Central Business District (CBD) is, all the way to Sentosa.
Location is the prime draw here. Shops, restaurants, banks and even the workplace are all on your doorstep, saving you the hassle of long commutes.
One major downside to a central address is, of course, the higher property prices. But by opting for co-living, you can enjoy the convenience without having to commit to eye-watering mortgage payments.
There’s more good news in store. Under the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) Master Plan, the central region of Singapore is set for a revival. In particular, the aim is to rejuvenate the Central Area – which includes the CBD and Orchard, Marina Bay and Marina South areas – to keep the city centre vibrant 24/7. This means prospective renters can soon look forward to even more residential, lifestyle and recreational options in this region.
Rest of Central Region
The RCR includes areas like Chinatown, Little India, Harbourfront and Bishan, each boasting unique charms.
For instance, Chinatown and Little India are rich in history and heritage, offering a window into the culture and traditions of two of Singapore’s major races. Meanwhile, Bishan is home to some of Singapore’s top schools and a stone’s throw away from the tranquil MacRitchie Reservoir.
This region, while a little further from the city centre, still offers easy access to town areas and plenty of amenities and green spaces.
More than half of CP Residences’ units are located in the CCR, while the rest are in the RCR. So, no matter what your needs and wants are, we are sure to have a home for you that ticks all the boxes.
