New Canberra Link EC . French Inspired Theme
7 Mins Walk to Canberra MRT Station

Here we present the Provence Residence EC. This is a new executive condominium, that is now launched for sale in early May 2021.

It is being developed by MCC Land Singapore at Canberra Crescent. This French-themed EC is next door to the Australian-themed Parc Canberra EC, that launched for sale in February 2020 and was 86% sold by end 2020.

Parc Canberra had the advantage of being the closest EC to an MRT station in the current batch of executive condominiums. Provence Residences EC, being about 7 minutes walk to Canberra station, will be the second nearest.


Provence Residence EC . Theme & Design

Architecture / Lifestyle Concept

The theme here takes its inspiration from French design, hence “Provence”. It attempts to forge a distinctive identity, with a simplicity and air of repose that evokes the French Riviera.

French Theme Executive Condo

The site is organised as a series of spaces that open out into each other, in intimate courtyards & promenades. These offer a variety of landscapes, from water features & activities, to terraced courtyards, and gardens that invite residents to stroll at leisure.

As for the architecture of the residential blocks, it calls to mind contemporary French silhouettes. These comprise a collection of clean lines, and details that come with a touch of vintage motif, in the form of Breton stripes.

The materials are kept to a clean elegant palette of just grey, black, and white, with touches of accent colours. The crisp lines & selection of colours, combine to give the whole place a certain sophistication and style.

Landscape Concept

The landscaping is a modern take on traditional French courtyard design. This is characterised by symmetrical walkways or boulevards bordered by clipped hedges of varying heights and a profusion of flowers & scents, with the very air redolent of the opulence & romance of a bygone age.

In the case of Provence EC, interlocking courtyards will create outdoor pockets of landscaping, to invoke the same moods of tranquility & privacy. The site design will consist of 2 main zones, namely the “Royal French Court”, and the “Countryside Gardens”.

The Royal French Court will form the central core of the project’s facilities. It will be filled with geometrical and symmetrical landscapes bordered by hedges at different levels. This covers the “Bonjour” (welcome), “Jardin D’Eau” (water garden), and “Living-Up” (on the 2nd level) zones.

The Living-Up zone is sited above the function room. It provides residents a place in which to gather and celebrate, or hold small events that lets them interact in the open air.

The Countryside Gardens will consist of the “Jardin du Pavillon” (pavilion garden), “Sanctuaire du Jardin” (sanctuary garden), and “La Sante” (health & fitness) zones. These will be semi-private gardens away from the central French Royal Court, filled with different types of plants and colourful flowers. They offer residents a choice of more secluded quieter courtyards to rest and relax in.

    Provence Residence EC . Location

    This Canberra Link EC is located in the Sembawang district, which is sometimes perceived as being far from the city centre, and perhaps inconvenient. Though that perception has grown less in recent years, as evidenced by the good sales at Parc Canberra.

    The reality is that with Singapore being so small, no place is really far from anywhere. In fact, with Canberra MRT station being 14 stops to Raffles Place on the North-South line, travel time into the city should be just around 40 minutes by train. Taking into account walking time to and from the station, perhaps 50 minutes or so.

    So train time to the CBD isn’t a lot more than from Clementi, or Tampines, or Punggol, or even Upper Bukit Timah.

    Residents who intend to drive would probably find the North South Corridor more useful. This is a new 21.5km long expressway connecting the northern region and Sembawang directly to the city centre, and linking to other expressways like the PIE, SLE, and ECP.

    It is slated for completion by 2026, around the same time as for Provence Residence EC, and should take away some of the congestion from the CTE then. Access to it is quite close by, six minutes drive away via Gambas Avenue.


    The Provence EC . Support Structures

    The area around this project now offers increasingly more supporting amenities. The nearest is a neighbourhood centre across Canberra Walk, with a mini-mart, shops, hawker centre, and child-enrichment and childcare outlets.

    Slightly further away, beside Canberra MRT station, is the new 3-storey Canberra Plaza, with its 118,000 square feet of retail space. It houses a Fairprice supermarket, lifestyle shops such as Daiso, bakeries, food courts, fast food outlets, cafes, restaurants, coffee joints like Starbucks, medical clinics, and an entire level of enrichment centres that include ballet, music, tuition, and language schools.

    In addition there is the 12 hectare Sembawang Integrated Hub, Bukit Canberra, currently under construction. This sits on Admiralty Hill, just diagonally across the traffic junction from our site. It is designed around the former Admiralty House, a conservation building of historical significance that adds character and focus to the project.

    Bukit Canberra is a low-rise development comprising a cluster of amenities set in landscaped grounds. These include a food court, outdoor & indoor sports facilities, a big ActiveSG gym with indoor and outdoor pools, polyclinic, senior care centre, various lifestyle amenities, and even a plot set aside for community farming.

    Therapeutic Gardens at Admiralty Hill

    Being low-rise, and in conjunction with Montreal Green Park across Canberra Link road, it means that units at Provence Residence looking this way will likely get unblocked views.

    Provence Executive Condo . Expectations

    Going by sales at Parc Canberra next door, this new EC should do reasonably well at its launch too. Besides the units left at Parc Canberra, there is no competition nearby, as the previous ECs around here sold out long ago.

    Even island-wide, there not many other EC launches as well. And those that are, like at Sengkang, Punggol, and Tampines, are further away from an MRT station.

    But all these still enjoy ongoing interest from the “sandwiched class”, as EC stocks are limited.

    The land cost for this new Canberra Link EC is just slightly more than that for Parc Canberra. However with rising construction costs, there is a possibility that either prices will have to be slightly higher, or developer margins will have to be cut.

    Evaluating Provence Residences EC as an Investment . Click to Open / Close

    An Investment Perspective

    If you are looking at Provence EC from an investment angle, here are some factors to mull over.


    Executive condos are built and sold by private developers, but typically at 15% to 20% cheaper than for comparable new private condominiums. First time buyers may also be able to get a housing grant of up to $30,000.

    Which makes them relatively risk-free, since they enjoy a sort of built-in ‘buffer’ from price drops.

    Given their lower entry prices, ECs can enjoy greater Return on Investment (ROI) as well, when sold after their MOP. This is because prices of resale ECs do trend towards those of private condos nearby.

    Which is why of all the property asset classes, ECs have historically reaped the largest capital gains, compared to private condominiums and HDB flats, both new and resale.

    This trend looks set to continue. Even though new EC prices have risen, hovering at around $1,1xx PSF nowadays, so have prices of private condominiums.

    One can hardly get a new private launch at anything below $1,34xx PSF these days, with the norm being more like above $1,5xx PSF for anything walkable to an MRT station. So the price gap still persists.

    In addition, new executive condominiums are partially insulated from the cooling measures. For instance, ABSD fees do not apply. And unlike for private property, buyers can get up to 75% financing even if they have an existing home loan.

    On the flip side however, financing for ECs is restricted by the more stringent 30% MSR (Mortgage Servicing Ratio). This is half that allowed for private property purchases. It is an admirably prudent approach, but makes getting sufficient loans for larger units difficult, given the income ceiling applicable.



    Despite their lower prices, ECs like Provence Residence are often practically indistinguishable from suburban private condominiums in terms of fittings and finishes.

    In fact, more often than not, they come with as many facilities, sometimes more, than their private neighbours.

    Unlike private condos however, the unit mix in ECs usually does not include one bedders. And very few even feature two bedders.

    The reason is that they are meant to cater to owner-occupier buyers, since they can’t be resold or rented out during the five-year MOP (Minimum Occupation Period).

    Hence the design and rooms tend to be more spacious and family-friendly. Which is good for those who dislike very dense living, or shoebox-sized units.



    Provence Residences is one of the five executive condos with units currently available for sale. All of them have different attributes, that appeal to different buyers.

    Where this particular EC is concerned, it shares one advantage with Parc Canberra. Both are less than 10 minutes walk from an MRT station, with Provence EC being around 7 minutes walk from Canberra station.

    Canberra station is a relatively new station on the North-South line, inserted in between Yishun and Sembawang. It only started operations in November 2019.

    Canberra MRT Station . Near Provence Executive Condo

    Canberra MRT Station . 7 minutes walk to Provence Executive Condo

    This is actually quite a positive factor in favour of this EC.

    For private condos, such locations can command a price premium of 10% to 15% over those not walkable to a station. This is reflected in the resale market as well.

    However, the differential in prices of new EC launches in this respect is much less. For instance, Parc Central EC at Tampines Avenue 10, away from any MRT station, will sell at a similar price, as the land costs are very close.

    So Provence Residence EC could possibly enjoy a larger gain once it can start selling on the private market.



    Much of the growth in Singapore is linked to the URA master plan, and economic clusters identified therein.

    Sembawang falls within the North Coast Innovation Corridor, one of such a decentralised cluster. Other hubs include the Greater Southern Waterfront and Jurong Lake District. Those don’t have any ECs in them, but both Provence Residences EC and Parc Canberra are in this one.

    The North Coast Innovation Corridor

    The North Coast Innovation Corridor . Provence Residence Singapore

    What is the North Coast Innovation Corridor?

    • It will be a new economic corridor in North Singapore, spanning from Punggol to Woodlands.
    • Intended to be the major source of jobs for the north-eastern and northern sectors of the island.
    • Covers the Punggol Creative Cluster, the Seletar Regional Centre, redevelopment of Sembawang Shipyard and its vicinity, and the Woodlands Regional Centre.
    • Will comprise residential, commercial, educational, retail, and business parks, and lifestyle components.
    • Will offer residents work-live-play options.
    • Sembawang Shipyard is slated to relocate to Tuas by 2024. This will free up land along the coast there, with potential for waterfront living and beaches like at the East Coast.

    These will form employment centres and potential tenant pools or buyers, for Provence EC owners after their five-year MOP.

      Provence Residence Site Plan

      The Provence Residence EC occupies an irregular-shape land parcel.

      It sits at the corner of Canberra Link and Sembawang Road, on its west and north-west. Across these roads are Montreal Park, a neighbourhood patch of green, and Bukit Canberra, the amenities hub on its landscaped grounds. So views in this direction would be relatively unblocked, from even the mid levels.

      To the north-east of the site is a parcel of land zoned for a school, which would likely be low-rise. So higher floor apartments facing this way could get unblocked views as well.

      To the south-east of the site is Parc Canberra, which is roughly the same height. Units here will face the blocks across, but this will be the quietest side.

      This Canberra Link EC site spans over 179,000 square feet of land, with possible built-in floor space of around 413,000 square feet. Access is via a new cul-de-sac road, Canberra Crescent.

      The bids for this Canberra Link EC site came in at above analysts’ expectations, with eight bidders tendering for it. Apparently developers expected continued strong demand for executive condominiums, especially for this site given its proximity to an MRT station.

      MCC Land topped the tender with a bid of SGD$233.89 million. This was just narrowly 0.2% higher than the second-placed CDL/TID joint venture.

      It equates to a land cost of $566 per square foot per plot ratio (PSF PPR), close to those of the previous four ECs.

      For ease of comparison, the land cost for Parc Central EC was $578 PSF, while Piermont Grand EC came in at $583 PSF, and those of OLA EC and Parc Canberra cost $577 PSF and $559 PSF respectively.

      After factoring in all the development and marketing, regulatory, and financing costs, the breakeven for this Canberra Link EC could be around $1,0xx PSF.

      And extrapolating from the prices of units at the other ECs, we could possibly expect a similar launch price of about $1,1xx PSF here too.

      Provence EC Location · Features

      Provence Residence Location Map . Master Plan & Neighbourhoods

      Provence Residence Location Map . Master Plan & Neighbourhoods

      1. Location. The Provence Residence location off Canberra Crescent, bounded by Canberra Link and Sembawang Road, lies within the Sembawang district.

        It sits in a partially HDB / partially private residential enclave. To its south-west and south-east are other executive condos like Parc Canberra, and Visionaire and Brownstone across Canberra Link, with landed and private housing beyond that. While to its north and east is an HDB estate.

      2. MRT Station. The Provence Residences EC location is 560m, or 7 minutes walk, from the nearest entrance to Canberra MRT station. From this station, half an hour’s train ride or so ought to take residents to Orchard Road. To Raffles Place and the CBD, add another 10 minutes, a total of 40 minutes ride.

      3. ::

      4. Shopping, Childcare, F&B, Banks, Supermarkets. The Provence Residence location, being in a fairly mature estate, is well provided for, where shopping for food and daily necessities are concerned.

        There are the neighbourhood shops a short walk away at Canberra Street and Canberra Walk. These include a Sheng Siong mini-market, hawker stalls, and tuition and childcare centres.

        We also have a fairly large mall opening soon, the 118,000 square feet Canberra Plaza beside Canberra MRT station. This will house a full range of outlets, including a Fairprice supermarket, and lots of F&B and retail shops, as well as child enrichment centres.

        Sembawang Road nearby also has a reputation for good food, housed in old coffeeshops and cafes with a laid back charm.

        Then for one-stop shopping and clothes and gadgets, there is North Point City one train stop down from Canberra station. This is the biggest mall in the north of Singapore, recently opened. It comes with a library, community club, and even a town plaza.

      5. Sports & Leisure Amenities. The Provence Residence location is just across the junction from Admiralty Hill, the site of the Bukit Canberra Integrated Hub. This clusters together a number of community, sports and leisure facilities. Like a swimming complex with outdoor and indoor pools, gym and fitness studios, an indoor sports hall, hawker centre, senior care centre, a polyclinic, and a community farm and fruit orchard.

        Or if you prefer going back to basics, 2 km up Sembawang Road is Sembawang Park and Beach, with its rustic charm and soothing breezes.

      6. Accessibility. The Provence EC location is really more accessible than it appears at first glance. An MRT ride to Orchard Road takes around half an hour.

        For drivers, it currently takes around half an hour to get to Raffles Place and the CBD via the SLE and CTE, off-peak. However once the North-South Corridor completes, getting on the expressway network should be faster as the rampway onto it is nearer. Total travel time off-peak then should not be more than 25 minutes.
