Park Place Residences at PLQ named Top Development at EdgeProp Excellence Awards 2020

  • 28 Oct 2020
Lendlease is pleased to announce that its Park Place Residences development has clinched the Top Development Award, as well as three out of six Excellence awards in Sustainability, Innovation and Design at the EdgeProp Singapore Excellence Awards (EPEA) 2020.

Comprising 429 units spread across three towers, Park Place Residences at the landmark urban integrated development Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) is designed with an innovative approach to address the growing demand for sustainable living. 
Tony Lombardo, CEO Asia, Lendlease said: “We are honoured to be recognised for our efforts to steer sustainability, innovation and design, guided by our vision to create value through places where communities thrive. These awards serve as important reminders of the importance of placemaking in the design of urban spaces. We look forward to continuing to push boundaries and elevating the benchmark for excellence.”

“With its great accessibility to the Central Business District, as well as the availability of a wide array of food and beverage (F&B) and retail options in PLQ, Park Place Residences offer comprehensive lifestyle benefits to residents, and provides ample opportunities for them to engage with the community within the broader precinct,” he added. 

A future-ready sustainable living solution

Sustainability As part of the wider PLQ mixed-use development, Park Place Residences give residents ready access to 100,000 square feet of green public areas and easy integration with the Park Connector Network. Other key environmental features include biophilic designs such as the terraced rain gardens which direct cleaner water into the Geylang River, and the use of a pneumatic waste system to reduce waste. From the adoption of a high performing sustainable building envelop design aimed at reducing the overall cooling load, to the use of LED lighting as well as fan-assisted ventilation, the implementation of energy-efficient systems has resulted in significant building energy savings of 1,109,429kWh per year – equivalent to the electricity consumed by 200 households (on average) annually.

In 2016, Park Place Residences also received the Green Mark Platinum certification from the Building and Construction Authority (BCA).

Innovation Each unit is equipped with a Smart Hub, which links all smart appliances, including the digital door lock, to the Park Place Residences mobile app. This mobile app enables residents to book facilities, manage their visitors and also connects them to the larger Lendlease ecosystem by giving them exclusive promotions offered by retailers at PLQ. Security personnel on site can also check for authorised/unauthorised visitors by scanning QR codes.

Design As a nod to the cultural heritage of the precinct, the design of Park Place Residences is inspired by the intricate weaving patterns of the Songket, a traditional Malay brocade textile. The blend of bronze and metal elements and the grey wall surfaces of the development emulate the gold and silver hues of the Songket while also giving the residential towers a rich and exquisite look. The layout of each unit is also regularised and efficient.
