We present here a Review of the Clavon condo. The Clavon is a brand new condominium being launched for sale in the established city-fringe estate of Clementi.
It is being built by a joint venture of two subsidiaries of the UOL Group, the very same developer who launched Clement Canopy two doors away in February 2017. That 505-unit project sold out fully by July 2018.
UOL is looking to repeat that success with the Clavon condominium, given that it has much the same attributes as Clement Canopy. For one, it will be the latest in UOL’s string of Masterpiece Homes, that stand out from the usual run-of-the-mill products.
These Masterpiece projects feature quality residences set in beautifully sculpted gardens and landscapes. Many of them have sold out, like Principal Garden with its expanse of inviting green lawns, and Botanique at Bartley with its terraced grounds.
The architecture of the Clavon Singapore will draw from their experience with these projects. For example, the architects have taken full advantage of the sloping site to layer the facilities amidst terraced gardens, similar to those at Botanique at Bartley.
And its Forest Walk has that same element of delightful garden experiences and vistas opening out, as at Principal Gardens and Tre Ver.
Here is a video flythrough of the project and facilities:
The Clavon Condo . Overview
The Clavon condominium will feature 37-storey towers that capitalise on the extensive views around, like at Clement Canopy. It will have slightly more units; at 640 homes, making for a nice mid-size project as well.
UOL’s developments have tended to sell well, perhaps due to their usually reasonable prices and reputation for quality, or maybe just because they are so attractive. They are also known for functional layouts and attention to detail, culled from their depth of experience and emphasis on design.
Architecturally, the Clavon is minimalist. Its tagline is a return to “The essence of living“. Distilling sophistication from simplicity, across its calm landscapes and into its elegant interiors.
From UOL’s experience with Clement Canopy, they perceive strong demand for this place, due to its location in Clementi.
Clementi is one of our most sought after residential neighbourhoods. Even HDB flats here enjoy a premium. There are good reasons for this.
For one, Clementi is a mature estate that is established and self-sufficient, with all the necessary amenities.

It is also not too far from the city centre. Not exactly on the edge of it, but near enough to require only a short travelling time.
Then too, Clementi is an almost purely residential area. It has hardly any large industrial zones, particularly around the Clavon location.
Instead it is next to a large education cluster, surrounded by one of the highest concentrations of schools & academic institutes from primary to tertiary levels, anchored by the National University of Singapore.
Residences near a concentration of schools have always been popular, whether in Singapore or elsewhere.
The Clavon itself is within an enclave that includes Nan Hua High and NUS High School, and is across Clementi Road from University Town and the Kent Ridge education belt. Well-known names nearby include Nan Hua Primary, the Japanese Primary School, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent), United World College, Yale-NUS College, and Insead Asia.
Apart from that, the site is flanked by two major research and innovation clusters. To its east is One North, a vibrant 200-hectare hub for business innovation and enterprise. It houses key focus areas such as info-communications technology, biomedical sciences, media, and science and engineering.
One MRT train stop on its west, will be the Jurong Innovation District, that brings together smart technology research laboratories with commercial offices.
The development of these two hubs is still a work-in-progress, which could lead to future growth in demand for accommodation in the neighbourhood.
The Clavon Singapore . Potential Demand
Little wonder then, that UOL expects demand from investors for the Clavon condo, given the potential tenant pool from these surrounding establishments.
All the more since once Clementi Peaks HDB precinct next door completes, residents can take a short-cut across. This could cut walking time to Clementi MRT station to 10 minutes or so.
With Tre Ver and Amber 45 over 80% sold, and Avenue South Residence having moved 50% out of 1,076 units since its September 2019 launch, the Clavon Singapore is seen as a timely replenishment to UOL’s land bank.
As with other new launches, specific Clavon condo prices will only be known on the booking day. As a basis for comparison however, its land cost is $60 PSF cheaper than that of Parc Clematis. Parc Clematis is almost the same distance from, but on the other side of the MRT station.
Parc Clematis did surprisingly well at its launch, selling 324 units on its 31 August 2019 launch day alone. As of September 2020, it had cleared 65% or over 950 of its 1,468 units, at an average of $1,600 PSF.
The Clavon Singapore . As an Investment
According to a Business Times report of 9 July 2020, private property prices in the west of Singapore (of which Clementi is part) rose by 14.9% in the previous 4 quarters (2nd quarter of 2019 to 1st quarter of 2020).
This was compared to overall suburban prices that rose only 2.8% over the same period.
Indeed, according to the same report, prices in the west region have outperformed overall suburban prices over the last 10 years. They have grown at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.1%, vs 4.4% for the suburban market in general.
In addition, there has been a rise in both transactions and rentals in this region. It points to a strong rental market that appear underpinned by accessibility, and growth of job prospects in the west.
For the longer term, employment in the region will likely be driven further by the growth hubs of the Jurong Innovation District, the Jurong Lake District, One-North, and the addition of the Greater Southern Waterfront City in future.

The Clavon Floor Plans
Below are example floor plans of the various unit types.
Kindly drop us a note below if you wish for the full Clavon condo floor plan brochure to be emailed to you.
Clavon Condo Site Plan
The Clavon site is a fan-shaped parcel of land at a bend of Clementi Avenue 1 just opposite Nan Hua High School. The main entrance will be from here.
The curved back of the site on its west and south-west, is bordered by a slip road leading from Clementi Flyover to the AYE (Ayer-Rajah Expressway).
This side of Clementi Avenue 1 is a residential belt. On the north of the Clavon condo site is an upcoming HDB precinct Clementi Peaks. To its south-east is a currently empty plot of residential land.
In response to lifestyle changes wrought by Covid-19, likely for the long term, UOL is shaping a “next-generation” product at Clavon.
The site design will feature a lot of nooks and corners amidst landscaped gardens. Just right for small group gatherings, or for those who want a relaxing space to work or study in outside their own apartments.
Making the most out of the sloping terrain of the site, UOL will build a basement carpark here. This frees up the grounds for the creation of a resort-like ambience, with a concept that revolves around an abundance of greenery and water, sustainability and community.
The residential towers will be orientated such that apartments have unobstructed views to the south, much like those at Avenue South Residence. And for the north-facing side, the units are tilted to take advantage of pocket views in between the HDB blocks opposite.

. One Bedroom + Study . From SGD$800K up
. 2 Bedroom . From SGD$1M up
. 3 Bedroom . From SGD$1.45M up
. 4 Bedroom . From SGD$1.9M up
. 5 Bedroom . From SGD$2.5M up
Please drop us a note below if you wish to be kept updated on specific detailed prices.
UOL Venture Investments and UIC Homes jointly submitted the top bid of SGD$491.3 million for this 178,064 square feet parcel of land. This works out to $788 PSF PPR (per square foot per plot ratio) based on the maximum permissible GFA (gross floor area) of 623,230 square feet.
This could translate to a break-even of around $1,300 per sq ft after taking into account all the costs of developing, financing, and marketing the project.
Given that scenario we could potentially be looking at a selling price in the $1,4xx to $1,5xx PSF region (subject to change).

Clavon Condo Location · Features
Location. The Clavon location lies within Clementi Town, a HDB estate that is 7 KM west of Orchard Road, and 10 KM from Raffles Place, as the crow flies.
It sits on the southern fringe of the estate overlooking the West Coast of Singapore and is actually also within walking distance of Clementi Town Centre.
- Shopping / Dining / Banking Facilities. The nearest eateries and shops are diagonally across Clementi Avenue 1, at Casa Clementi. At the ground floor of the HDB precinct there, one can find a food centre, a well-supplied Sheng Siong mini-mart, neighbourhood shops, and dental and medical clinics.
For a much more complete range and variety, residents can take a 10 minute walk or short feeder bus ride to Clementi Town Centre and Mall.
Nearest MRT Station. The Clavon condo location is about 700 metres, or 10 minutes walk to Clementi MRT station. That’s by cutting diagonally across the HDB precinct, Clementi Peaks next door, to the junction of Clementi Avenue 2 and Commonwealth Avenue West.
This station lies on the East-West MRT line, that goes directly to the CBD and Changi Airport. From Clementi station to Raffles Place takes around 18 minutes.
Schools / Educational Institutions. This is where the Clavon location really shines. Apart from the fact that around the corner we have Nan Hua High School and the NUS High School of Maths and Science, and Pei Tong Primary School about 15 minutes walk away.
Because just slightly afield, is a proliferation of schools and academic & research institutions. Such as Nan Hua Primary, the Japanese Primary School, University Town, the sprawling campuses of the Singapore Polytechnic and the National University of Singapore, Yale-NUS College, Singapore Institute of Technology, and the United World College of South-East Asia. The list goes on.
Recreation / Sports Options. As befits a mature estate, Clementi is equipped with the usual recreational facilities. These include the Clementi Swimming Complex, and Clementi Sports Centre & Sports Hall. Which happen to be quite close by, just over Clementi Avenue 2 behind the site. An overhead bridge provides safe access across.
For those more into nature, there are West Coast Park and the Southern Ridges Green Belt not too far away. These provide a welcome respite within 10 minutes drive.
Accessibility. The Clavon condo location enjoys quick access, a couple of minutes drive, to a slip road onto the AYE (Ayer-Rajah Expressway). From there it takes 15 to 20 minutes off-peak to get to the central business and financial district around Raffles Place and Marina Bay.
The AYE also provides quick access around the island, through the island-wide expressway network.
