15 HOLLAND HILL CONDOMINIUM
Here we present a Review of 15 Holland Hill condo, a new freehold residential development at the top of Holland Hill. This is a leafy cul-de-sac road that winds uphill from Queensway, in the Holland Village neighbourhood. The site is roughly 10 minutes walk from Holland Village and the MRT station via a short-cut down the hill.
Note: This is NOT an advertisement for sale.
15 Holland Hill occupies the location of the former Olina Lodge, that was sold to Peak Opal, a unit of Kheng Leong. Such a hilltop enclave plot of land in prime District 10 is rare, and there are only 4 condominiums at the top of the hill here. It offers an opportunity for the developer to build an exclusive new development in a secluded corner with panoramic views, at 15 Holland Hill.
Where Kheng Leong is concerned, the approach underpinning its development projects is one of a “…collaborative effort of acclaimed international architects, interior and landscape designers to create built environment and spaces of distinction.”
In the past, it has partnered with top architectural names such as Richard Rogers (UK), Richard Meier (US), SCDA Architects, and Ernesto Bedmar.

Holland Hill itself is within the upmarket private residential zone of Holland Road, stretching from Singapore Botanic Gardens and Dempsey Hill at its Orchard Road end, past Holland Village and Henry Park and the Mount Sinai area, to Pandan Valley to its west.
This is all part of District 10, traditionally one of the top residential enclaves of Singapore. And in the midst of this, sits Holland Village, the shopping heart of the neighbourhood.
But not just of the neighbourhood only. Holland Village, often endearingly shortened to “Holland V”, draws both foreigners and locals from all corners of Singapore too. Holland V is one of the most well-loved spots in Singapore, with its slightly “bohemian” character.
It is not just an expatriate enclave with trendy restaurants and pubs, cobblers, arty shops, and frame makers. In fact, the village exudes a rich, distinctive charm mixed with a casual “hang loose” atmosphere and cosmopolitan flavour that makes it an enduringly favourite spot to chill out at.
About the 15 Holland Hill Singapore Development
15 Holland Hill Singapore will be a mid-rise 12-storey high luxury development housed in three blocks, and surrounded by other high-end homes. With an allowable gross floor area of 134,862 sq ft, it could have accommodated over 130 units. Instead Kheng Leong has chosen to build just 59 apartments here.
Hence this project will comprise only large format homes, mainly 3 and 4 bedroom apartments, with a small handful of penthouses and garden maisonettes, and eight 2 bedroom + study units.
This makes good sense, as most of the new projects tend towards ever smaller floor areas. It bucks that trend, and should find a market among neighbouring residents. Especially those who live in landed property nearby, and are looking for a new easy-to-maintain flat in the vicinity that is more acceptable for those used to big rooms.
15 Holland Hill is designed by an experienced architectural firm PT Consultants, in collaboration with Ramboll Studio Dreiseitl, the authority on landscape design. As a master of its field, it will create something special here, at a luxury level, with understated elegance.

15 HOLLAND HILL SINGAPORE SITE PLAN
The 15 Holland Hill condo site is a roughly quarter-circular plot of land accessed from the top of Holland Hill road. On its west it faces the open landscaping at the centre of Parvis @ Holland V. Which puts it at quite a distance from the residential blocks there.
To its south and south-east, are grouped three other condos – Lush, Holland Peak, and Kintyre Park. These surrounding condos are either 5 or 12 storeys high. In general, it is not a densely built up neighbourhood.
So the 15 Holland Hill site enjoys quite an open feel, especially for upper floor units that could get views all the way to the Dempsey and Botanic Gardens area, and to the city skyline.

15 HOLLAND HILL CONDO PRICE RANGES
The 15 Holland Hill prices have not been decided yet. Please let us know via the Contact Form if you wish to be kept posted on the pricing when it is known.
The 15 Holland Hill site was previously occupied by Olina Lodge, that was sold on 20 April 2018 to Peak Opal, a unit of Kheng Leong. The purchase price was SGD$230.9 million, 5 per cent higher than its reserve price of SGD$220 million.
This plot of land has a site area of 84,289 square feet, and is zoned residential with gross plot ratio of 1.6 and an allowable maximum height of 12 storeys. The purchase price works out to a land rate of SGD$1,712 PSF PPR (per square foot per plot ratio). No development charge is payable, due to the high development baseline.
The break even cost of the project will have to factor in other costs, such as for overheads, construction, marketing and financing.
The sale price of this project is likely to be benchmarked against recent new condominium launches in the same district, especially a number of others launching soon in the vicinity.
Kheng Leong has a proven track record for developing homes known for quality and value. Besides being a forerunner in the development of cluster houses in Singapore, Kheng Leong has chalked up a portfolio of both residential and retail developments.
Among the many residences built by the Group are Nassim Park Residences, 72 Grange Road, The Ansley, Principal Gardens, One North Residences, Sutton Place, Domain 21, The Minton, Tudor Ten, and The Woods (cluster houses). As well as the elegantly beautiful MeyerHouse at Meyer Road.
Perhaps as testimony to the quality of Kheng Leong’s work, is the fact that its previous projects have weathered the passage of time well. Even mass market ones, such as The Minton. Though Minton is not within walking distance from an MRT station, and is located within a HDB heartland area, it is still commands good rental and resale demand.
And if you haven’t seen The MeyerHouse yet, you should. It is indeed something special, worth looking at. Just head over to the MeyerHouse page to register for a viewing if you are interested.
Background of Kheng Leong
Kheng Leong was incorporated in 1949 as an international commodity and trading company, but evolved over the years into an investment group with interests in property development and real estate investment.
Today, the Kheng Leong Group handles a growing portfolio of development projects, and varied businesses globally. These are through both direct investments and collaborations spanning the Asia Pacific region from Singapore to Hong Kong to Shanghai, as well as in key cities such as London, Los Angeles, and Sydney.
