The window of opportunity into District 9. Irwell Hill Residences is being developed by City Developments Limited (CDL) in Singapore’s most coveted District 9. Designed by renowned Dutch architectural firm, MVRDV, well known for their signature layered, distinctive pixelated architectural works worldwide, Irwell Hill Residences sitting on an elevated position, flanked by Irwell Bank Road and overlooking River Valley Road, will be the new gateway landmark into the Paterson Hill, River Valley and Leonie Hill locales.
With sustainability in mind, MVRDV conceptualised the development around the 4 existing majestic Raintrees that have been on the grounds for the past 35 – 45 years. They also kept the development footprint to just 26% of the almost 138,000 sq. ft. land while allowing future residents to enjoy the remaining 74% in an expansive landscape environment, similar to the Good Class Bungalows in the vicinity. A feat, few developments can achieve, let alone in prime District 9 where land is a premium.
