Taking luxury living to new heights from London to San Francisco, services once the preserve of privileged guests at the world’s most prestigious hotels are now featured in premier residential developments sited in elegant urban locations.
Today, this level of service and luxury comes to Singapore by way of The Boulevard Residences (BLVD). The BLVD is not only an assent to living well but a defining experience of consummate quality and style.
Tucked away from the bustle of Orchard Road, yet presiding over its skyline, the BLVD is a study in urbane sophistication. Two slender 36-storey towers linked by a sky bridge are clad in full-height glass curtain walls to provide uninterrupted views of the cityscape without. Boasting four super-luxurious penthouses, two with its very own swimming pool in the sky, and 42 dream apartments, every unit is accessed via a private elevator that takes the resident from a plush lobby directly to his haven.
From your oasis of calm, you can watch the bustling city below your lofty perch. Just across from this address, the best shopping experience of Orchard Road beckons. The world’s leading fashion labels and designer couture are within short reach when ever you need that special outfit for the evening. When your stomach yearns for the finest Chinese fare, the Four Seasons Hotel’s acclaimed Jiang Nan Chun restaurant is just a hop across Orchard Boulevard. Fine dining, movie theatres, the trendiest gymnasiums and spas are all within walking distance. The term ‘a good neighbour’ has never held such promise.
Inside the BLVD, life settles into contentment and tranquility. Space is not a luxury, but a given. Each apartment measures an average of 2,034 square feet and has living rooms that face only north or south directly. This obviates the intense heat and glare from the rising or setting sun while affording a panoramic view of the pulsating world outside.
Finesse is about the things big and small that escape your attention when the world around you comes together so well. With a prime address in the heart of the city comes with the attendant traffic noise and its cacophony. But you won’t notice any of it as you’d be above it all; BLVD apartments are thoughtfully built from the sixth storey upwards to set you apart from the elements that might distract you from living well. You’d also be ensconced in the comfort of its fully air-conditioned interior without ever seeing the vents or hear its murmur. You are blissfully unaware, left only to savour the splendid life.
A dip in the pool is no less a unique experience. Residents look over a canopy of trees to the city-spread below while lazing at the infinity edge of the 28-metre lap pool that is cantilevered outwards from the third storey. A fully-equipped gymnasium is located on a higher level at the sky terrace, providing the elevation for that perfect workout. Cooling breezes waft the sky terraces constantly, caressing you as you walk bare foot over the generous timber deck after a pilates session. Next to it, the viewing lounge and generous greens provide a lush sense of the tropics in the very heart of the city. And for those special occasions that demand a party, the lounge and outdoor timber-decked areas are the perfect venue to entertain your guests.

The BLVD itself is a work of art. Its arresting structure is laced with the signature glass fins and a perforated metal screen that runs the entire height of both towers. This metal screen ingeniously encloses a stairway that is by day a porous sheath that catches light from various angles and in the night emits the ethereal glow of soft candlelight as a lantern, marking out its place in the resplendent night sky of Orchard Road.
Befitting its stature, BLVD offers many of the impeccable services and experiences that have come to be expected of a luxury hotel. The concierge would ensure your reservations are in order for that perfect night out. A valet would arrange for your deliveries to be safely sent up to your apartment. As you step out from your car and into the plush lobby for the elevator ride that takes you directly up to your haven in the sky, you’d not have a care in the world.
