Lake Life will be erected on a 129,135-square foot parcel of land in the scenic Jurong Lake District. The site is just a ten-minute drive away from Jurong Gateway, which is currently being developed into the largest commercial hub outside of the CBD. The whole Lake District is in fact right now being transformed into a thriving center for lifestyle and business, with Jurong Gateway and Lakeside as the main attractions. In the coming years, a wealth of leisure destinations will be opened, and myriad job opportunities created.

Like Life will have 5 blocks of 20 storeys each, to contain 546 home units. It will feature an assortment of units from 2-bedroom apartments to 5-bedroom ones.

– 3BR (between 1,000 and 1,120 sq ft; 85 units)
– 3BR Premium (between 1,080 and 1,720 sq ft; 150 units)
– 4BR unit (between 1,230 and 1,259 sq ft; 76 units)
