Singapore may be a concrete jungle but that didn’t stop it from being named the Greenest Asian City in the 2011, Economist Intelligence Unit’s Green Cities Index. Despite being land-scarce, and urbanised, the Republic outperformed other Asian cities across eight environmental criteria, including land use, buildings, air quality and environmental governance.
Key to this achievement is local developers’ integration of conservation, and environmental protection into the construction of new condominiums.
Residences such as The Glades at Tanah Merah, a Keppel Land property, have contributed to this outcome. The condominium offers high-ceiling loft apartments, dual-key units and one- to four- bedroom suites and penthouses, set amidst expansive green spaces that create a peaceful resort feel.
