Property Review – Jadescape
As a Property Wealth Planner, my friends will always come to me for advice on their investment in properties.
The most common question is “Which is the best new launch residential property to invest?”Well, I cannot guarantee that you will make money in your investment, but I have a system to access which development is good for investment.
Today, I am here to share a new residential development that I fell in love with it, “Jadescape 顺福轩 “
Jadescape is a 99 leasehold residential development located at Shunfu road. Qingjian Realty acquired the site via an en-bloc sale in mid-2016 for the price of S$638 million. Jadescape is built on the site of former Shunfu Ville, a privatised HUDC development.
Jadescape is developed on huge land sizes of 396,114.06 square feet (36,987.70 square metres), housing 7 blocks of a residential block with a total of 1206 residential units comprise from 1 bedroom to 5 bedrooms. The development also comes with a block 6 commercial units.
For Jadescape, the developer consulted the famous Fengshui Master, Master Joey Yap, to designed the best layout of the Fengshui for the development. The architectural and landscaping of the whole development is base on the Fengshui concept by Master Joey Yap, to bring health and prosperity to the owners of Jadescape.
The 4 Key Assessment Points Of Jadescape Fengshui
- The environmental factor that takes into account external natural landforms.
- The building factor that looks into the architectural of Jadescape itself.
- The people factor that looks at every occupant as a unique differentiator
- The time factor that ensures the residents of Jadescape enjoy good Fengshui right now.
Jadescape, the blocks are well placing in stagger and the distance between each block is well managed. All blocks are facing north-south directions, this gives all the units with good flows of natural ventilation and lighting.
I love the facilities in Jadescape, there are close to 100 facilities in the development. 2 swimming pools, a 50M lap pool between blk 6 and block 8 will satisfy people that want to have a proper training without any disturbance. As for the other pools, if more for activities, it also has a pool length of 50M, the children pool is just beside it.
4 small function halls can cater for 30 persons and yet can be combined to cater for a gathering of more than 30 if you need to, not many condominiums have that flexibility. Condominium with 2 gyms and 2 sunken tennis court are facilities that are rare in the market.
The landscape is well spread and draw in the natural flow of the winds and lighting. with the numerous species of green plant within the estate, it provides the freshness natural feel. All units are allocated to 1 car park lot each in the 2 basement car park. 6 commercial shops, most probably there will be a mini-mart operate in the condo which will bring convenience to the residents.
The layout of the individual unit impresses me. The average common room in the development is 10 square metre, which allows you to place a queen sizes bed and yet have room to move around. Don’t forget the 2.95M ceiling heights which are above the average of a lot of new launch development.
The 2.95-metre wardrobes in the rooms are something I would like to highlight. Space management to create more storage space for you. Jadescape has a wide range of choice unit for you to choose. Units start from a 1 bedroom 527sqft to a 5 bedroom 2099sqft luxury suite unit.
All unit types are well proportioned with good sizes living and dining area and the sizes of the rooms are amazing, somethings which I would like to highlight again, the common rooms is average 10 square metres. Simply to say, is very comfortable to stay.
Most development, the unit layout is quite similar, In Jadescape, I would like to touch on 2 types which are relatively rare in most development.
The 1 bedroom, 527 sqft unit, it comes with an open concept kitchen, living and dining area is able to house a gathering for more than 20 people comfortably and you still have a balcony.
The toilet is designed wit 2 access, allow your guest to enter from the common area and yet you can access during your normal day from the room as an attached bathroom.
The master room is spacious enough for you to place a king-size bed with 2 side table and plenty of room for you to move around. With the 2.95-metre ceiling height, you will never feel clamp in the room.
A 5 bedroom with a size of 2099 sqft, you rarely find in new development nowadays. Most 5 bedroom is not bigger than1800sqft. this 5 bedroom suite unit, I personally classify it as the luxury unit in this development.
This 5 bedroom unit might suitable for people with a big family or multi-generation family. Master room, Juniors suite with attached bathroom and 3 common rooms. A huge landscape orientation living hall (6M width) with dry kitchen fully equips with appliances and a huge size wet kitchen with a maid room.
A build-in in line air-con system in the living hall and master give a clean and neat appearance to the unit. I can say that you hardly can find any unit types with these sizes in the RCR area in new launches.
Smart home and smart living
Jadescape has its own developed apps that will be given to all owners free. You are not only able to use the apps to control your home and it also able you to connect to the community. Jadescape owners are living in a smart community with everything on your handphone or tablet.
The Hassle-free Visitor function does attract me, just imagine if your in-law visits you without informing and happen you are not home, with this hassle-free visitor function, you can allow them to enter your home comfortability just by simply send them a one-time password. You no need to rush back home.
All the 7 residential blocks in Jadescape is North-South orientated. Generally, some unit will have afternoon sun and road noise.
- 1 bedroom: Stack 44 and 38. thisn2 stack will not have afternoon sun into the unit. stack 38 will have a beautiful pool view.
- 2 bedroom: most of the 2 bedroom units are well place. if you like pool view, I will recommend stack 19,26,31,30. This pool will be quieter than the skyline pool. Pool view is not what you are interested, then stack 35 and 41 will be good for you, quiet and facing the private landed enclave.
- 3 bedroom: stack 55, quiet, no afternoon sun. balcony looking into the private landed estate.
- 4 bedroom: stack 42, nice pool and landed view for a compact 4 bedder. Quiet facing with no afternoon sun. Stack 39 for a premium unit with quiet facing and great pool view in the living hall and nice landed view in the rooms but a little setback on the afternoon sun on the wall.
- 5 bedroom: both stack 46 and 40 are the same, overlooking into the landed estate with a quiet environment. The sidewall will encounter some afternoon sun.

Future Development Around Jadescape
Looking into the investment perspective, there are a few areas that we can see that the development will have a probability of value appreciation.
Low Inventory In District 20 For New Launches.
Over the last 7 years, only 7 new launches happen in district 20, all sold out. To date, Jadescape in records has already sold more than 72% of its inventory. There is not much land for new development, unless collective sales from old development, but yet it will not take place immediately.
Collective Sales (En-bloc) Within The Area Of Jadescape
Due to the scare of land for new development in this area, collective sales could be the faster way developer can acquire land for new development. There are a few old developments fall into this category, Thomson View, The Lakeview and Braddell View. If this happens, what will you think of the price will be?
Change In Master Plan That Will Affect Jadescape Future Prices
Jadesacpe fall with the new master planning of Bishan Estate. Under the Master planning 2019, Bishan will be developed into a sub-regional centre and will be transformed into an attractive and easy accessible employment node. Community and Facilities will be integrated within upcoming commercial developments to better serve nearby residents.
The master plan has made some changes to the growth of this area.
3 new plots of residential land have been allocated as seen in the chart, and also the amendment of the plot ratio from 2.8 to 3.5. This already marks the growth of Jadescape.
The North-South Corridor – a 21.5km expressway that will connect towns in the northern region to the city – is expected to be completed around 2026. This will also make the possibility of increase the value of the development due to convenience.
The Demand For The Rental Unit Increase.
With the new master plan in place, as a sub-regional centre, jobs will be created, demand for a rented unit increase, tenants pool is secured.Last, of all, Jadescape pricing could be one of the lowest prices now in the RCR areas. Selling at an average of S$1700psf, starting from S$1502psf.
Comparing to the new launches in RCR, Jadescape is one of the lowest average transaction S$psf in the region.
Jadescape is a new launch project that I would like to recommend to people that are looking to buy as a dream home or for investment. The project itself already have various good points to look at.
It is statistically located, next to fast-growing Bishan Estate, and yet so close to nature. With Bishan as a sub-regional centre, it will have the potential in value appreciation and also good for investment.
