The new Club will offer more food and beverage, and leisure establishments
International property consultant, Colliers International has been appointed by Civil Service Club (CSC) as the sole marketing agent to lease – via expression of interest – retail premises within its new Changi Club located at 2 Netheravon Road.
Interested parties are invited to submit their interest to Colliers International by August 26, 2013, at 4 pm.
First opened in Year 1994, the sea-fronting Club, which operated out of a conservation colonial bungalow and out houses that were built in early 1927 by Manasseh Meyer1, is currently undergoing re-development works at an approximate cost of S$30 million and is slated to be completed by 2Q 2014.
The new Club will be expanded and sprawled over a 2.1-hectare elevated coastal site. The gross floor area of the Club will be tripled to approximately 130,921 sq ft – of which, about 20 per cent is designated for food and beverage (F&B) and leisure premises, catering to both CSC members, public officers and the public.
The F&B establishments with alfresco sea-front seating will be housed in the refurbished conservation buildings. Meanwhile, the new development on site encompasses 20 chalet units and 5 villas, leisure and sports facilities including two tennis courts, a bowling alley of up to 20 lanes and an infinity swimming pool, among others.
Mr Calvin Yeo (杨光伟), Deputy Managing Director at Colliers International, says, “Leveraging the rare coastal setting, the Club is positioned as a new lifestyle destination; where in particular, the F&B tenant mix will comprise eateries with new-to-market lifestyle concepts.”
Mr Yeo adds, “The Changi Point enclave has always exuded an understated rustic allure – given its rich colonial heritage and an idyllic coastal setting. In recent years, the enclave has grown into a recreational destination, with an eclectic mix of restaurants, alfresco dining, coffee shops, bars and pubs, chalets and holiday bungalows amid lush tranquil surroundings that evoke old-world charm.
The new F&B and leisure establishments at the Club will contribute to enhancing the enclave.”
The public infrastructure at Changi Point has been enhanced by the authorities in recent years, with park connectors and boardwalks to bring visitors closer to the scenic coastline. Other leisure developments in the vicinity include Changi Village Hotel, Changi Golf Club, Changi Beach Club, Changi Club, Changi Cove Hotel, chalets and government bungalows, among others.
Manasseh Meyer was a wealthy Jew who built the bungalow in early 1927 and sold it to the British in 1933 to be used as a school for the growing British population in Changi. In 1942, the bungalow was occupied by the Japanese to run the camp for prisoners of war.
