d’Leedon Singapore is named a World Gold Winner of the FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence, Residential High-Rise

The FIABCI (International Real Estate Federation) Prix d’Excellence recognises projects that best embody excellence in the real estate disciplines, illustrating the ideals of ‘providing society with the optimal solution to its property needs’.  The jury panel is comprised of top real estate professionals and experts and rewards projects not just on their aesthetics, functionality or size, but on overall merit.

d’Leedon Singapore, designed and built for Capitaland, with 340 unique apartment layouts is the largest residential development in the city state. The petal-shaped floorplan for the 36 storey towers allows for windows on three sides of every apartment and natural ventilation in all kitchens and bathrooms. With varied geometries, the orientation and placement of the seven towers is optimized in response to environmental considerations.

The site presented a number of constraints with two MRT underground tunnels and the primary water main supply to Singapore from Malaysia running directly beneath the site, together with strict setback regulations at the western edge of the site. d’Leedon’s design turns these challenges of the site to the advantage for residents, embracing the concept of differentiation, where single apartments have been customized and specifically designed according to their location and position within the site, as well as the requirements of the residents.
