Reflections at Keppel Bay, one of the world's most architecturally daring icon, has been conferred the highest Gold award in the highly acclaimed FIABCI Prix d'Excellence Awards 2013.
Receiving the award at the 64th FIABCI World Congress in Taichung, Taiwan, was Mr Tan Tai Chiew, General Manager of Keppel Bay, the joint venture developer behind Reflections at Keppel Bay, comprising Keppel Corporation and Keppel Land.
Mr Tan said, "The latest win reaffirms our commitment to develop world-class properties that bear the Keppel quality hallmark. Beyond architectural excellence, we strive to create desirable living environments that will enrich the lives of our residents at Reflections at Keppel Bay and across all our properties.
"As a global architectural icon, Reflections at Keppel Bay mirrors Singapore's status as a modern and forward-thinking nation. Keppel is proud to play our role in continually shaping our city skyline with distinctive landmarks such as Reflections at Keppel Bay, that also positions Singapore on the world map of prime real estates."
Strategically located on Singapore's southern coast, Reflections at Keppel Bay features six glass towers and 11 villa apartment blocks along a 750-metre shoreline. The 1,129 luxurious waterfront apartments enjoy unrivalled views of the bay, golf course, lush parks and Mount Faber. Designed by master architect Daniel Libeskind, Reflections at Keppel Bay is his first residential showcase in Asia.
Mr Libeskind added, "I am delighted that Reflections at Keppel Bay has been named the Gold winner by the FIABCI. Reflections at Keppel Bay has been influential, not only on the community but on the city at large. Singapore is known as a paradigm for innovative residential developments and Keppel Land has been exemplary in its desire for innovative, sustainable, and creative design. I am delighted that our close collaboration with Keppel Land is continuing with the new project, Corals at Keppel Bay."
The development achieved temporary occupation permit in December 2011. To-date, about 95% (901 units) of the 950 launched units at Reflections at Keppel Bay have been sold. Tapping on strong leasing demand for luxury waterfront residences in Singapore, more than 150 units have been set aside as corporate residences.
Riding on the strong demand for luxury waterfront properties, Keppel has launched Corals at Keppel Bay, also designed by Libeskind. Located along the historic King's Dock in the Keppel Bay precinct, Corals at Keppel Bay will comprise 366 premium waterfront residences.
