For any building to pass for the perfect residential area, it has to be close to some of the facilities needed by almost everybody on a daily basis. New Futura is located on Leonie Hill Road, and this gives its residents access to important nearby places with a lot of ease. You can easily walk to most of them, but some of them will require a short drive.
At 500 meters, Somerset is the closest North-South Line MRT station to the condo. As such, residents will be able to access other parts of Singapore easily. However, a slightly longer drive is required to access the Dhoby Ghaut and the Orchid MRT stations. Alternatively, you can use the Somerset MRT station to get to the Dhoby Ghaut MRT interchange. From there, future residents can use either the North East Line or the Circle line.
The Great World Thomson Line Train Station has got a lot of people excited. At 600 meters, it is the second closest NRT station to the condo. Nonetheless, it’s not going to be operational until the year 2021, which isn’t that far considering how fast the world is moving.
The Central Expressway is the nearest expressway to the New Futura. With that, residents will be able to access other areas around Singapore easily. For the potential residents working in the Central Business District, traveling to work has never been easier; the condo is only a 20-minute drive to the CBD and a 4-minute drive to the closest financial district.
New Futura is also conveniently near schools such as St Margaret Primary School, Zhanngde Primary School, River Valley Primary School, Outram Secondary School, River Valley Primary School, and Raffles Girls Secondary School just to mention a few. Also, it neighbors modern tertiary institutions in the area such as Singapore Management University, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, and the University Of Chicago Booth School Of Business.
Expat families will also enjoy the proximity to schools such as Overseas Family School, Chatsworth International School Orchard Campus, Finnish and Swedish Supplementary schools, and ISS International Elementary School. Singapore’s prime shopping district, Orchard Road is also just a short walk away alongside numerous F&B outlets.
However, if you fancy local food, then you will feel at home with over eight major food centers within walking distance from the condo. Also, prestige clubs such as The American Club, Legends, Tanglin, and the Pine Club are awfully close. Residents will also get to enjoy the abundant greenery from nearby parks such as Fort Canning Park and Pearl’s Hill City Park just to mention a few.
