Hundreds visited showflat of first 'retirement resort' here

Published on Jan 4, 2014 10:47 PM

Hundreds thronged the showflat of The Hillford, the first development here being sold as a "retirement resort" on Saturday.

The project in Jalan Jurong Kechil, which has a leasehold of only 60 years compared with the usual 99, is also one of the first property launches for the new year. It will have a 24-hour concierge service, a full-time resort manager, and commercial units such as restaurants and clinics.

For ease of movement, corridors will be wider and each block will have two lifts. Toilets in the units will have emergency call buttons leading to the concierge.

The visitors to the showflat ranged from those in their 40s - mostly looking to buy and rent out - to those over 70 years old exploring the possibility of moving in.
