Additionally, all apartments will have a ceiling height of 2.7m apart from the top and bottom floors that will have 4.7m.

Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Oxley Holdings, Eric Low has stated that they could have built more units but they decided against it to make room for more space for each unit.

  • Nature-embedded Environment

The site where Kent Ridge Hill Residences is situated was picked intentionally because of its vast natural environment. Behind Kent Ridge Hill is a 47 hectares Park which is also linked to other parks like Labrador Nature Reserve, Mount Faber Park among others. It is also close to other facilities like VivoCity and Pasir Panjang Food.

Eric Low, in a statement said that the one of the reasons Kent Ridge Hill Residence is better than their other projects is that it has been designed to blend-in with nature. He further explained that a blend of wood and concrete were used to erect the apartments for this same reason. There are several architectural landmarks like Forest Walk and Waterfall bed—which were designed to give the environment a natural feel and outlook.

Even the chief executive officer of Oxley Holdings, Ching Chiat Kwong, in an interview emphasized on the difference between the former Vista Park environment and other sites and how much they love it.
