Sophia Hills, a modern contemporary masterpiece jointly developed by Hoi Hup Realty Pte Ltd and Sunway Development Pte Ltd, was awarded the World Gold Winner in the Residential (Mid Rise) category at the FIABCI World Prix d’Excellence Awards 2020. The largest development in Singapore’s District 9, Sophia Hills is a low rise 493 units condominium, sitting atop the undulating ground of Mount Sophia – a hill rich with history and an unparalleled legacy. The developers have kept the heritage alive with the restoration and integration of three conserved buildings. Trinity Theological College Chapel which was built in 1969 has been converted as a Restaurant, whilst Olson Building by Frank Wilmin Brewer in 1928, now serves as The Sophia Clubhouse while Nan Wah Girl’s School built in 1941, has been designated as a childcare centre or kindergarten.
Tan Wee Bee, Deputy Managing Director, Property Development Division (International) Sunway Berhad reiterates that Sunway is committed to driving the ambitions of the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals.
“The preservation of Singapore’s cultural and architectural heritage for the community is an important element to building sustainable cities and communities,” he says.
