Hundreds of potential buyers swarmed the showflat of what is being marketed as Singapore's first retirement village, The Hillford, in Upper Bukit Timah, on Friday morning.

There was a mix of middle-aged buyers as well as younger buyers in their 20s.

The 281-unit project, The Hillford, developed by World Class Land promises features such as 24-hour concierge service, full-time resort manager as well as clinics and restaurants, on top of typical condo facilities such as a swimming pool and gym.

Prices at the project range from $388,000 for a 398 sq ft one-bedder to $648,000 for a 61 sq m two-bedroom dual-key unit.
