Liang Court is situated on the Singapore River as a shopping centre and commercial area. Not only the shopping center are included in the planned Liang Court proposals. The location of Liang Court will be totally improved. The current Liang Court will be converted into Canninghill Square that comprises commercial districts, residential accommodations and a restaurant.

Three big property developers joint venture to turn Liang Court into a totally different creation. Liang Court’s ultimate target is huge transformation. At the end, Liang Court is turned into a new icon at Clark Quay with mixed components.

That will be a significant project that will render Liang Court a mixed use complex for the developers to finance millions of dollars. The end result is a commercial and residential development.

Located at 177 River Valley Road Singapore, Seven hundred residential units are to be built at this development. Around 460 and 475 rooms there will be a medium-sized hotel. A 192-room building with a hotel license would also be available. It takes time to create a project of this size. In 2024, the opening phases commence. The opening of the new hotel in 2025 is expected.

The serviced 192-room residence cost approximately $300 million. Other brands contend with this hotel creation already. The hotel is not currently as new as the competitors in the city. One of the activities of this refurbishment is to help the old hotel draw tourists. The developers are committed to using this hotel by modernisation as an attraction for the location. This redesign is not only about upgrading the hotel. Overall, this rebuild at Liang Court are transforming thriving neighborhoods. It is meant to improve foot traffic and be a creation for companies that is welcoming to the visitors.

When this effort cost hundreds of million dollars, it is definitely important for consumers at a period. The retail business considers the surge in internet sales difficult to deal with. Furthermore, supermarkets contend with other supermarket businesses because of the decline in foot and shop traffic. Liang Court’s redesign would allow the shopping mall to cope with online shopping and other physical distributors.

Liang Court to be redeveloped to Canninghill Square

The new Liang Court is to recreate a condo at Canninghill Square which consists of two residential buildings with an anticipated 700 units and a trade area consisting of a “upper-mid-scale” hotel containing about 475 rooms and 192 apartments that have a hotel licence, as well.

The commercial and residential components of CDL and CapitaLand JV organizations shall be managed, while CapitaLand subsidiary Ascott Reit shall continue to own the residences served at full ownership.

CDL will enter an arrangement to buy the hotels from the City Developments Limited Hospitality Trusts.

According to existing plans, CDLHT can either purchase for S$ 475 million or 110% of the construction, which is less when the hotel is finished.

The hotel will be run and run by and is scheduled to be finished by 2025 and will be operated by Marriott International’s Moxy brand.

Ascott Reit said, however, that from the 13.034 m2 grounds, which it will hold, the net profits would be used to restructure serviced homes, once its Somerset Liang Court shares have been sold.

The lease term kept at 57 years would now be retrofitted to 99 years after signing of the new leases.

The figures for costs are S$300 million for serviced apartments. Ascott Reit said that the present Somerset Liang Court has been aged and cannot cope with the hotels nearby.

Facelift at River Promenade

The vibrancy at Clark Quay enclave would also improve when the consortia aims to re-energize the adjacent promenade along the river according to the recommendations laid down by the URA Draft Master Plan 2019.

The general descent of the area, and there will be further social events in the area, is anticipated until the promenade receives a rejuvenation. There is also provision for enhancing connectivity on the Singapore River.

CDL also occupies the Central Mall in the vicinity of the Singapore River as part of a supermarket and office construction scheme.

CapitaLand currently owns shares in the Clarke Quay mall through its CapitaLand Mall Trust and also shares in Clarke Quay Park Hotel – both in Singapore River district via Ascott Reit.
