“We wanted to build a safe, secure and serene living environment for its residents, however, we wanted more than that. We want to enable a total living ecosystem that features fun, functionality, nature and community. That’s why you find Rivervale the way you do, full of amenities and facilities which include a kid’s room, mini movie theatre, games room and an open garden with Japanese koi swimming in the stream.

“Other facilities include a gym, playground, swimming pool, kid’s pool – jacuzzi, bbq area, gazebo and a sitting terrace. All of that, set on the backdrop of nature’s lush green beauty, brings a feeling of living in an urban oasis.”

He said currently, approximately 80 percent of the Rivervale Condominium has been sold , with demand for most of the 146 units of Blocks A and B garnering increasing interest with all the facilities expected of a high-rise luxury living. “This award, along with the 2015 and 2017 awards received for The Isthmus and Rivervale Residences respectively, speaks magnitudes to the standards that we strive to achieve in the properties we build,” Isaac added.
