Riverfront Residences Facilities Overview
Across the sprawling 36,811 sq m complex are the main draws — a 50m Open Mangrove Lap Pool and a 75m River Pool, encircled by an almost-symmetrical layout of strata terrace houses, residential apartments and social spaces for entertainment and leisure. These include clubhouses on both sides as well as outdoor dining areas for residents who prefer a more casual affair.
The entire condominium has been sectioned into 3 different thematic zones: Botanic Cove, Mangrove Resort Cove and River Lifestyle Cove. Each provides residents, who live in the surrounding blocks, unique facilities to enjoy such as pavilions for outdoor dining, streams, lawns and nature trails. Children can look forward to a large dedicated play area known as Kids Adventure where exciting amenities like a Party Pool Deck, a 20m Shallow Play Pool, Kid’s Rock Climbing, Flying Fox and more will entice the little ones everyday.
Come home to where all your needs are met, beginning at the lobby. A concierge service welcomes you before opening up to a private co-working space if you should ever need a quiet place to work or study. Retail stores within the condominium also ensure that everything you need will always be readily available.

Established Amenities Within a Mature Estate
One of the greater advantages of living in Hougang is being situated at the centre of connectivity where different modes of public transport are available and schools as well as malls have sprung up over time.
One Park Connector, Many Ways
The Serangoon Park Connector lines Serangoon River, right outside Riverfront Residences. This 4.2km stretch is well known for its rich biodiversity where wildlife such as the Grey Heron and the Little Egret can be spotted. The park connector also leads directly to Punggol Park, a recreational family-friendly area which features a 5ha pond with fishing sites and paved routes for cyclists and joggers alike.
Endless Shopping and Dining Opportunities
With Hougang Mall a quick 3-minute drive from home, you can look forward to a new level of convenience where groceries can be purchased and other services provided by the numerous neighbourhood mom-and-pop stores. Travelling a little further brings you to Heartland Mall, neighbour to Kovan Market and Food Centre, and Compass One or Nex where a greater variety of retail and entertainment options are available. Serangoon Gardens, famous for its supper eateries and lively atmosphere, is also 11 minutes away by car.
Educational Institutions and Easy Commutes
Travelling to school will hardly be an inconvenience for your children given the wide ranging institutions spread out across the vicinity. Established schools such as CHIJ Our Lady of the Nativity, Holy Innocents’ High School and Serangoon Secondary School are all within 1km of your new home. Other institutions like Montfort Junior and Secondary School, Xinghua Primary School and Xinmin Secondary School are a short 4 to 6-minutes drive.
Punggol Digital District
This is the future of Singapore, synchronising work, play and various lifestyles into a technologically-enhanced district. It will be the first township to fully embrace a “smarter, cleaner and greener” way of living with fewer cars on the road and sustainable commercial spaces.
State-of-the-art medical facilities at Sengkang General Hospital are a mere 10-minute drive so that you will never be too far away from prompt medical attention should you ever need it.
Riverfront Residences features 3 different housing options — luxury residential units (1,383 units), premium residential units that have private lifts (68 units) and strata terrace houses (21 units) comprising 2 storeys with 4 bedrooms and a basement with a private carpark.
1-bedroom apartments range between 43 and 59 sq m with some offering the option for a study. The largest 4-bedroom units feature a foyer before opening up to the dining and living areas. Between 131 to 151 sq m in size, they have both dry and wet kitchens for different culinary needs and a junior master apart from a master bedroom.
Upcoming Key Developments
Plans for the future of Serangoon and Hougang mainly centre around the revitalisation of the wider district. The ABC Water Projects at Serangoon Reservoir is a widely-anticipated initiative which will open up new spaces for greater recreational activities. Lorong Halus, previously relatively unattractive for its concentration of heavy industries, will be transformed into an immersive industrial estate where waterfront parks and other open areas will accompany the various industries set to start up there.
Yet, most exciting is the announcement of the Cross Island Line (CRL), Singapore’s 8th MRT line. With upcoming major commercial and residential zones in Punggol, Jurong, Hougang, Serangoon North and more, the CRL will serve over 10,000 households, the 1st phase comprising 12 MRT stations. It is expected to be completed by 2029.
Riverfront Residences on the News (June 2018, Channel News Asia)
Believed to have begun the heat of en bloc sales, the acquirement of Rio Casa by Oxley Holdings and its joint-venture company allowed the group to purchase the land for just S$706 psf ppr — the cheapest in north-east Singapore. As a result, new home-buyers may enjoy eye-catching rates with the smallest one-bedroom apartment being sold from S$578,000. Whether one is buying the property as an investment or to live in, the opportunity to enjoy living by the river and a giddying number of amenities is almost too good to pass up.
About Oxley-Lian Beng Venture

Some of its residential developments which have performed well include Parkwood Residences and The Verandah Residences which features striking similarities to its surroundings of colonial black and white bungalows. Another upcoming residential property is Mayfair Gardens along Rifle Range Road, warmly received for its iconic Georgian architecture.
