Far East Organization, a pioneer of Singapore’s first SOHO developments, launched the Far East SOHO brand in 2011, a new concept in spatial living inspired by New York City’s Lower Manhattan or ‘South of Houston’ (SOHO), where a cluster of artist lofts, art galleries and cafes became a hub for creative talents. Far East SOHO heralds a new era of SOHO-living and an integrated lifestyle concept in Singapore where living, leisure, working and connectivity converge in one address. Far East SOHO is anchored in the winning combination of strategic locale, excellent connectivity and flexible spaces. The Cape is the first completed Far East SOHO development.
Imaginatively innovative with an edgy luxury, the 76-unit freehold residences in The Cape are designed to meet the needs of the most sophisticated homeowners. Experience a sleek, stylish SOHO lifestyle with exceptional floor to ceiling heights of 3.4m, top of the line finishes and fittings, and customisable living spaces. The enviable location of The Cape at the crossroads of modernity and heritage in cosmopolitan East Coast makes it equally accessible to numerous recreational options by the sea as to the pulsating beat of Marina Bay and the city.
Unusual for a boutique development, a whole suite of communal facilities were made available to enhance the quality of life for the residents. This went above and beyond the typical model of compact apartments which focuses on maximising the number of units at the expense of non-commercial communal spaces and facilities. Standing at 16 storeys, The Cape caters for different enclaves of communal spaces at the second storey sky terrace and 14th storey sky terrace. The two sky terraces have amenities that cater to different lifestyles of the residents, with the second storey sky terrace comprising amenities that primarily cater to those who favour a more tranquil and relaxing setting. The 14th storey sky terrace caters to residents who prefer entertainment and socialising, where the view opens up to the East Coast sea front. Despite its site constraints, the development generously allows for two swimming pools, a barbecue pit, playground and gym for young urban professionals and small families to take pleasure in comfortably.
