Some thoughts on the developments

1. The development is close to the main road, people who are sensitive to noise may choose those units facing inward.
2. To limit the exposure of the Chinese temple, the designer opted to place the MSCP (multi storey car park) next to the Chinese temple to act as buffer. And as units are north-south facing, most will not look directly into the temple.
3. The bedroom size is a bit small, you do not have much rooms to move around after fitting in a queen size bed.
4. Initial layout of the 3-bedroom unit, dining hall can not fit a proper dining set. This was improved at its phase 2 launch with its club kitchen concept design. An integrated kitchen and dining area was separated from living hall with a full height glass partition. When it’s opened, it creates a cohesive flow between the dining, living and expansive balcony area which provide extended space for big gatherings.
