Green and futuristic, The Lumos redefines luxurious living

Ever wanted a spot of green living — complete with a view from the top?

That may soon be a reality if early impressions from the Koh Brothers and Heeton Land project are anything to go by.

The two companies recently revealed the name and concept of their new freehold luxury development on Leonie Hill — The Lumos.

“With our complementary strengths and the good level of understanding we have developed, I believe we can do something very special with The Lumos and I am truly excited about the potential of this development,” said Mr Danny Low, chief operating officer and executive director of Heeton Holdings.

The Lumos is set to be another addition to the evolving Orchard Road skyline. Though not as towering as the Orchard Residences, the Lumos’ twin 36-storey towers aim to stand out as its iconic architecture stems from the idea of a glittering chandelier.

A central zone of vertical Sky Gardens connects the two towers together, enabling every unit to open up onto a landscaped plot of high-rise greenery.

Sitting on a 34,516-square-foot plot of land on Leonie Hill, the Lumos houses 53 exclusive residential units that range from 635-sq-ft one-bedroom apartments to the 6,000-sq-ft penthouses that sit atop of each tower.

The penthouses also come with a rooftop garden as well as a private lap pool.

To tie in with its iconic and futuristic design, the apartments will also be home to state-of-the-art interior fittings to suit the tastes of residents in the cosmopolitan development.

Knight Frank and the Dennis Wee Group, the marketing agents for the development, are confident of a positive reception for the Lumos.

“We believe this luxurious freehold apartment will be highly sought after and the partnership of reputable developers like Koh Brothers Group and Heeton Holdings will further inspire confidence in buyers and investors,” said Mr Dennis Wee, chairman of Dennis Wee Group.

“The outlook for luxury developments in prime locations remains very positive and we have seen recent sales of ultra-luxury projects, like the 99-year leasehold Orchard Residences at Orchard Turn, set new benchmarks for top-end homes with price tags of around $4,000 psf.

Added Mr Peter Ow, executive director of Knight Frank: “The Lumos is set to benefit from this pent-up demand for luxury projects in prime locations.”

The futuristic design and the plush interior fittings all come at a price although it remains to be seen whether the freehold Lumos can match the prices set by Orchard Residences.

At this point, property buyers and analysts alike await the announcement of the project’s launch date and, more importantly, the prices.
