Introducing The Hill @ One-North, an exciting new launch condominium development set to be a significant private residential addition to District 5. Nestled along Slim Barracks Rise, this contemporary development caters to urban dwellers who seek a dynamic lifestyle within walking distance of one-north’s vibrant tech hub and an array of amenities.

After observing the successful launches of Blossoms By The Park, Kent Ridge Hill Residences, One-North Eden, and Parc Clematis in District 5, we anticipate strong demand for units at The Hill @ One-North.

This mixed-use development enhances convenience for its future residents by providing various amenities within the complex itself, complementing the nearby facilities. The Hill @ One-North stands out not just for its proximity to workplaces and amenities but also for its strategic location. With easy access to both one-north and Buona Vista MRT stations on the Circle Line (CCL), residents can seamlessly connect to the rest of Singapore. This strategic advantage ensures that daily necessities and recreational opportunities are within easy reach.

It is scheduled for preview on 6 April 2024, with its official launch on 20 April 2024. In this article, we’ll delve into the standout features of The Hill @ One-North, its promising future, and recommendations tailored to each unit type.

Project Details

Location Analysis 

The Hill @ One-North enjoys proximity to key transportation hubs, offering future residents excellent connectivity to other parts of Singapore. Buona Vista MRT interchange, offering access to the East-West Line (EWL) and Circle Line (CCL), is a short 7-minute walk away, while one-north MRT Station on CCL is approximately an 11-minute walk away. For those driving, quick access to the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) ensures a smooth 15-minute commute to the Central Business District (CBD).

In terms of leisure and dining, residents will find themselves within walking distance of malls like The Star Vista and Rochester Mall, both just an 8-minute stroll away. Additionally, a variety of restaurants, bars, and cafes are conveniently located nearby.

Families with school-aged children will appreciate the proximity of Fairfield Methodist Secondary and Primary Schools within a 1-KM radius of The Hill @ One-North. Other notable schools, including Queensway Secondary School, Newtown Primary School, and Dover Court International School, are also easily accessible by a short drive.

Some prospective residents may find comfort in knowing that while the area around the development can be busy on weekdays due to the presence of work nodes at one-north’s technological hub, it tends to be more peaceful on weekends. This offers residents the best of both worlds: a vibrant city life during the week and the chance to relax and enjoy quiet weekends after a busy workweek.

Site Plan Analysis

The development comprises 142 residential units spread across three blocks: two blocks with 11 storeys and one block with 7 storeys. This mixed-use development offers additional conveniences and amenities within its premises. Although there’s no confirmed list of amenities at the time of writing, typical condominium facilities such as a swimming pool, barbeque pits, and areas for yoga and children’s play are expected.

With only 142 units, future residents won’t face stiff competition for facility usage. However, due to the development’s relatively smaller land size, the range of facilities may be somewhat limited.

Unit Distribution

The Hill @ One-North offers a variety of unit configurations, from 2-Bedroom to 4-Bedroom units. Notably, the 2-Bedroom + Study configuration constitutes around 40% of the total inventory, suggesting a focus on smaller families, young couples, and investors. This trend aligns with the demand observed in recent launches in District 5, where 1 and 2-Bedroom configurations have been highly sought after.

For homebuyers and investors, understanding the demand for different unit configurations is crucial. It reflects public sentiment towards these configurations within each district, which is essential for ensuring a broad potential market when considering future property resale.

In essence, The Hill @ One-North offers unit sizes that are in line with recent launches in District 5. This ensures a competitive overall price range for buyers seeking private residences in this area. 

Floor Plan Analysis

In this section, we showcase our top choice for each available unit type. If you want to explore other floor plans not highlighted here, please contact our sales team directly here or through our social media platforms.


We have chosen Type 2B-1 for the 2-Bedroom configuration. Despite sharing the same size and layout as other types, this option stands out due to its stack location and floor levels, offering residents views of the development’s swimming pool from the balcony.

Upon entry, residents are greeted by the kitchen to the side, with the dining and living area aligned in a straight line, extending to the balcony. The rectangular shape of the dining and living areas optimises space, while the balcony provides ample room for residents to unwind and enjoy pool views.

The master bedroom and common bedroom are strategically separated from the main living areas, ensuring residents enjoy enhanced bedtime privacy. With 732 square feet (sqft), this type is ideal for young couples and smaller families. It also presents a prudent investment choice, given the expectation of a healthy tenant pool.

2-Bedroom + Study

For the 2-Bedroom + Study configuration, we highly recommend Type 2b-S6(A), which is the largest option available. It’s an excellent choice for smaller families and couples, offering plenty of space for bonding and daily activities.

This type features an efficient dumbbell layout, ideal for optimising space usage. Upon entry, you’ll find the kitchen to the side, followed by the dining and living areas in a rectangular shape, with the balcony extending beyond. The master bedroom and attached bathroom are positioned on one side, while the common bedroom, common bathroom, and study room are on the opposite side.

With the inclusion of a study room, this type is especially ideal for younger couples with work-from-home arrangements. Additionally, we anticipate high rental demand from a healthy pool of tenants for this type.

We’ve also chosen this type for its higher floor levels, providing residents with better views of the surroundings. Units of this type are situated on the 4th to 10th storeys.


Our top pick for the 3-Bedroom configuration is Type 3B-5, which happens to be the largest option available. One of the standout features of this type is the spacious entry foyer upon stepping into the unit, providing ample room for storage solutions.

Another noteworthy aspect is the enclosed kitchen, which doesn’t encroach on the dining and living areas, ensuring there’s plenty of space for families to comfortably carry out their daily activities. Moreover, the balcony extending from the living area is sizable enough to possibly accommodate al fresco dining, making it perfect for smaller families who enjoy outdoor meals.

What makes Type 3B-5 even more appealing is its ability to cater to larger families, including multi-generational ones. The layout ensures that the bedrooms are tucked away from the main living areas, guaranteeing privacy, especially at bedtime.

With its spacious and efficient layout, coupled with the presence of an enclosed kitchen, this type is also well-suited for hosting guests, making it a versatile and practical choice for families of various sizes and needs.

3-Bedroom + Study

Our top choice for the 3-Bedroom + Study configuration is Type 3B-S1. Sharing a similar layout to Type 3B-5, this option features a spacious “L”-shaped entry foyer, providing residents with extra storage space.

The dining and living area boasts a generously sized rectangular shape, offering plenty of room for family gatherings, daily activities, and efficient space utilisation. The sizable balcony adds versatility, perfect for alfresco dining or extending the living area.

With the kitchen enclosed and separated from the main living areas, it prevents cooking odours from spreading throughout the home. Furthermore, the strategic placement of the study area, two common bedrooms, common bathroom, master bedroom, and attached bathroom ensures a peaceful and quiet environment for work or rest.


At 1,227 sqft, the 4-Bedroom layout Type 4B-1 at The Hill @ One-North is tailored for larger, multi-generational families. The dining and living areas span a wide, rectangular shape, optimising the space for daily living. With an enclosed kitchen, odours from heavy cooking are contained.

In a smart layout, the Junior Master Bedroom with its attached bathroom is located near the dining and living areas. On the opposite side, accessible through a hallway, are two common bedrooms, a shared bathroom, and the master bedroom with its attached bathroom.

The standout feature of this configuration is its ideal size, providing ample space for family activities while maintaining an attractive overall price. Unlike larger units in other developments, which may come with higher prices and less efficient layouts, this configuration strikes the perfect balance.

Closing Thoughts

Given the success of recent launches in District 5 and the efficient layout of units at The Hill @ One-North, we anticipate a positive reception for this development, particularly for its 2-Bedroom configurations. Situated in the Rest of Central Region (RCR), The Hill @ One-North offers an appealing option for younger couples and investors. Additionally, families may find it advantageous due to its proximity to schools.
