Affinity at Serangoon Facilities Overview
The architectural intention of creating a resort-like ambience is clear throughout the development with 3 distinct, thematic zones creatively mimicking the restful and luscious environment of a tropical getaway.
Pool-side activities are the focus within The Islands, featuring Sky BBQ on the 2nd floor of the clubhouse, overlooking the pool, and a floating gym next door. The lap pool spans across 2 residential blocks with dedicated areas for the little ones to play safely too.

Surrounded by All That Matters
Affinity at Serangoon lies at the intersection of Ang Mo Kio Avenue 3 and Yio Chu Kang Road, placing it at very close proximity to almost everything from choice schools to shopping and dining destinations.
Your Backyard, A Heritage
Serangoon Gardens Circus is a designated “identity node” by the URA, speaking to its value in the conservation of Singapore’s distinct locations. A former housing area for British soldiers in the 1950s, Chomp Chomp Food Centre today has become synonymous with barbecued seafood, traditional hokkien mee and other local fare. This dining hotspot is just a quick 3 minute drive or a 10 minute stroll from your new home.
Essential Connectivity to Transportation
Major expressways like CTE, SLE and KPE are highly accessible from Affinity while Serangoon MRT, a bus and MRT interchange, is your nearest and most convenient option, connecting you right to the heart of the city. The rest of the island such as Harbourfront and east Singapore are also a few train stops away.
Endless Opportunities for Shopping and Recreation
Sports centres and stadiums are not the only venues offering you a great time of exercise within the vicinity. You’ll also find yourself in between the vast Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park as well as Punggol Park while the essential Serangoon Park Connector is 7 minutes away by bicycle. NEX Mall and AMK Hub are 2 established shopping destinations where you can find entertainment such as a cinema, a games arcade and karaoke joints. Each mall also has a huge variety of restaurants and smaller eateries for you to indulge your cravings.
Educational Institutions and Healthcare
Within 1km of Affinity are Rosyth School and Zhonghua Primary School, both highly sought after for their holistic approach to education. Slightly beyond 1km are even more options with CHIJ Our Lady of Good Counsel, Bowen Secondary School and Nanyang Junior College to name a few.
With Sengkang General Hospital a quick 10 minute drive away, world-class healthcare facilities will always be within your reach if you or your loved ones should ever need it.
The highlight of every home points not only to a neat and well-organised layout but that it has been fitted with the finest of appliances from Bosch in the kitchen to Grohe in the bathrooms. Beginning at 44 sq m (474 sq ft) is a 1-bedroom apartment with the addition of a study expanding to 52 sq m. There are multiple configurations available for each apartment from 3-bedroom premium to deluxe.
The penthouses are between 147 to 160 sq m, featuring a junior master bedroom and an expansive balcony with enviable views of the surroundings or the pool. For added luxury, every strata terrace house has its own private carpark with 2 parking lots in the basement. These units begin from 192 sq m.
Upcoming Key Developments
In the near future, residents can look forward to greater and more expansive recreational areas in the outdoors such as the completion of Ang Mo Kio Linear Park and the development of ABC Water Projects in Hougang. Both will bring people close to nature and closer to each other. Yet, the biggest highlight is the construction of the Cross Island Line (CRL) which will see Affinity having its very ‘own’ MRT station, Serangoon North MRT. This is expected to begin operating by 2029, allowing residents to reach further destinations such as Pasir Ris in 4 stops.
Affinity at Serangoon in the News
Within its 1st phase of sales in mid-2018, almost half of the 300 available units had been sold, with 80% of the buyers being Singaporeans. CEO Ching Chiat Kwong of Oxley Holdings Limited, the main developer of Affinity, observed that a good proportion of the new homebuyers were also former residents of Serangoon Ville, the privatised HUDC estate which was sold at $835 psf ppr in an en bloc sale. He believed that Affinity’s wide variety of amenities as well as its desirable location made for an attractive purchase.
