Overview – The Opus Condo

The Opus Condo @ Amber Gardens

The site of the upcoming condominium development, to be named The Opus, is the latest to be snatched up by the prestigious property developer, City Developments (CDL), as well as Hong Leong who reportedly holds a 20% stake.

The Opus condo will be built on the site of the Amber Park development on Amber road, which is a parcel of land that was officially zoned in 2014 by the government for residential use.

The redevelopment of this site for The Opus is expected to suitably complement the current additions to the District 15 community, including a number of amenities beneficial to its residents.

Furthermore, although the current Amber Park condo, which was also first developed by CDL, is a residence with approximately 200 freehold units, The Opus has been marketed thus far as a luxury, high-rise condominium that will have most units offering generous sea-views.

As such, a representative of CDL has stated their expectations of The Opus price to be between approximately S$4.3M and S$8.3M per unit, with additional amenities such as a basement carpark on the premises.

History About Amber Road Near The Opus

Derived from the family name of 20th century Singapore property developer, Joseph Aaron Elias, Amber Road is a road that connects the junction of Mountbatten Road and Haig Road to Tanjong Katong Road.

The Elias family was part of a prominent Jewish business family that possessed significant stake in the Singapore property development market in the early 1900s. Areas such as Orchard Road and Amber Mansions have also been named after the family clan.

The history of Amber Road as a culturally-rich landmark within Singaporean history includes two events during the 20th century. Amber Road, for instance, was the site of Operation Sook Ching during the Japanese Occupation (1942-1945) and was additionally one of the areas most affected during the Maria Hertogh riots that occurred in 1950.

Nowadays there still exist a number of culturally-significant landmarks on Amber Road, as well as other scenic features. One of these prominent landmarks includes the Chinese Swimming Club, first established in 1905 and still standing today, although it has been renovated to include additional facilities and amenities since.

Amber Road is also a location home to several already-standing housing residences, including Amber Towers, Orchid Mansion, Amber Apartments, and Parkway Mansion.
