How eco-friendly is eCO?

The 748-unit eCO development, the first private residential project to be launched in the Bedok South area after 30 years, has seen strong interest ahead of its official launch, with close to 600 registrations of interest.

Developed by a consortium comprising Far East Organization, Frasers Centrepoint and Sekisui House, the development boasts an innovative and ecological design, based on the theme “In harmony with nature”.

Meanwhile, a spokesman for the developers confirmed that eCO has received Green Mark certification from the Building and Construction Authority (BCA). “Our vision for eCO is to create an intelligent and sustainable development that contributes to the fabric of the community and its environment,” said Chia Boon Kuah, Chief Operating Officer of Property tSales and Executive Director at Far East Organization.

Prospective buyers will have a choice of five residential lifestyles within a gated community, namely SOHO, Suite, Condominium, Loft and Townhouse. It is also accessible to major roads and expressways in the vicinity. The Japanese-inspired SOHO concept called The Icoi House, designed by Sekisui House, features Zen designs blending with functional work spaces, innovative storage solutions, and private living area.

“The idea of The Icoi House is to create a personal haven for relaxation after a busy day at work while not forgoing the usability of the space by maximising storage areas with good space planning,” said Kenta Konishi, Managing Director at Sekisui House Singapore.

Also, eCO comprises a unique Green Corridor, a 100-m nature boardwalk trail comprising greenery and a scenic bio-stream at the end of the trail, designed by DP Architects, ICN Landscape International and ecological architect Dr. Ken Yeang.

A Rain Garden will also be incorporated to collect, filter and store rain water that could be reused in water features and landscape irrigation. Residents may also choose to grow plants in the dedicated community plot.

The development will likely obtain its TOP (temporary occupation period) by 2017.
