8 St Thomas – Former Airview Towers and Chez Bright Apartments, sitting on 2, 10 & 18 St Thomas Walk. They were among some of the oldest residential development built from 1970s in the same vicinity. However, both adjacent developments were sold collectively via an en-bloc purchase to Bukit Sembawang Estates a decade ago.
Fast forward to recent years, these old buildings were already bulldozed and demolished like the rest, making its way for another new and luxurious development after almost 4 decades. If you’re not familiar with this area, we are a Freehold Prime District 9 Residence located at Saint Thomas Walk, sitting quietly along our renowned River Valley Road. Touted as one of the most coveted private enclave neighbourhood by many seasoned investors and among the local TV celebrities community.

8 St Thomas
It was an aerial perspective taken during the earlier stages of construction, a glimpse of the majestic lobby conceptualised by multiple award winning DP Architects. A homegrown firm of 50 years, you may have heard of them, and they are the creative brains behind The Esplanade, Suntec City, Millenia Walk and many other iconic projects / redevelopments including Wisma Atria, The Centrepoint and Mandarin Gallery in Orchard Road.
Speaking of which, we are only about 3 mins walk away to the upcoming Great World MRT and approximately 500 meters walk away from Somerset train station. An important detail for most non-driving residents or would-be. It is also home to the current hippest 313 shopping mall, Orchard Central and Orchard Gateway with some of the biggest F&B names, huge stores, trendy boutiques and other entertainment choices around. It is not too far away for leisure and certainly not too near to where the crowd is definitely. The saying goes, near but not too near.
8 St Thomas is the brainchild of Bukit Sembawang Estates Limited. A leading local rubber company with a humble beginning since 1911. Diversified their business in the 50s and incorporated into a public listed organisation in 1968 for real estate developments. Being crowned as the “Landlord King” in 2017 by DBS Bank as we have one of the largest tracts of freehold land in Singapore.
After building more than 4,000 fine and exquisite quality homes with great value in various parts of the city, including upmarket projects along Paterson Road and Cairnhill area, we are bringing you yet another luxurious residential development.
Standing at 35 and 36 Storeys high respectively and with a total of only 250 units, we are effectively minimising the overall population density, with lesser units as an exclusive high-end residence. By featuring one to four-bedroom apartment type layout including penthouses, there will be more options for the discerning home purchasers.
