JADE SCAPE CONDOMINIUM
The JadeScape condo is a new development in the Marymount/Thompson area, on the site of the former Shunfu Ville, around 3 to 4 minutes walk from Marymount MRT station on the Circle Line. This is a city fringe location that is fairly prime, an established residential estate with a mix of landed houses around. It is being developed and launched for sale in September 2018.
Jade Scape is designed by award-winning architect Paul Noritaka Tange, of Tange Associates. The project’s name reflects its qualities. As a precious stone, the “Jade” in the name positions the property as one of value and luxury. As a colour, Jade represents the varied, lush greenery of the development.
“Scape” hints at its nature-inspired setting. Together, the JadeScape condo name describes the extensiveness of the jade-like greenery within the property, one rich in concept and nature, and of its neighbourhood as well.
That’s because it is beside the central water catchment area with the largest expanse of nature reserves and reservoirs in Singapore. Jade Scape is actually within walking distance, roughly 700m in direct line, to MacRitchie Reservoir. Some higher floor units will get pocket views of the reservoir and the nature reserve, and unblocked views over the neighbouring landed estates.
Jade Scape Condo Amenities . Highlights
The JadeScape condo location is a good spot to bring up a family, and for those more into the outdoor life and nature walks. The Thomson Nature Park is scheduled for completion sometime this year. Along with MacRitchie Park, residents here will have a number of hiking or biking trails to choose from. Temperatures here are often a good couple of degrees lower than the rest of the island too.
Another draw of this place is that it is in pretty much a self-contained enclave with all the key amenities one would need. Market, food centre, supermarket, banks, shops, schools including some ‘branded’ ones, its own foodie haven, a choice of 2 MRT lines, nature, it’s all there.
Indications of interest in the JadeScape launch has been quite strong so far, probably as there are no other new private condominiums in this location to compete for buyers. Especially since the Thomson area has traditionally been a long-time favourite of surrounding home-owners who can afford it, and those who see investment potential in this relatively central location.

Jade Scape Floor Plans
The full set of JadeScape floor plans are now ready. Just drop us a note below if you would like the Jade Scape floor plans to be emailed to you.
Every unit at JadeScape, excluding the one bedroom Gold type (due to space constraints arising from the lower countertop height to cater for wheelchair bound residents), will come with a water purifier and dishwasher. Integrated dishwashers (see video below) for the small to medium sized units, and standalone ones with bigger capacities for the 4 bedroom suites and upwards.
These dishwashers even wash fruits and vegetables to help get rid of dirt and chemicals!
Jade Scape Condo Site Plan
The JadeScape condo site is a triangular land parcel. Its 2 shorter sides are bounded by Shunfu Road and Marymount Road. On its long north-west side, it borders the low-rise landed houses of Thomson Garden Estate. Units facing that way will get open views, for quite a long distance in fact, as the low-rise profile continues onto the Thomson Park landed estate.
However if you looking to buy a unit at JadeScape condo for MacRitchie Reservoir views, then you need to study the site plan carefully against the URA Master Plan zoning. Most of the west face of Jade Scape appears pretty unblocked now, looking towards MacRitchie, as the buildings in between are of low to medium height. But note that some of these sites are actually zoned for higher densities. So if and when those are redeveloped, they could be even taller than the Jade Scape condo.
The blocks at Jade Scape are oriented in a direct North-South direction, to minimise exposure to the hot west sun, and maximise wind flow by catching the seasonal monsoon breezes. Below is the Jade Scape site layout plan, showing unit types coded in different colours, and the facilities. (The legend for interpreting them are in the 2nd diagram.)

As at other launches, the JadeScape condo prices will only be announced on the day sales open, though indicative pricing will likely be released earlier. In the meantime, analysts have estimated a pricing range as follows.
This site was originally Shunfu Ville, sold en bloc to a unit of Qingjian Realty (South Pacific) Group Pte Ltd in May 2016. The deal was given final go-ahead in May 2017 by the Court of Appeal after they dismissed an objection filed by some residents to the sale.
Based on the site’s plot ratio of 2.8, Qingjian’s purchase price of SGD$638 million works out to a land rate of about $747 per square foot per plot ratio (PSF/PPR) on the potential GFA (Gross Floor Area). This is after adding the differential premium payable to the State to top up the lease to a fresh 99 years, and for intensification of use of the site.
After factoring in construction and development costs, break even could be about $1,300 to $1,400 PSF. Indicative JadeScape prices for the launch VIP Preview start from around $1,526 PSF (after early bird discounts).
