Jadescape condominium is an upcoming residential development at Shunfu. Situated at the site of the ex Shunfu Ville which underwent en-bloc, Jadescape will feature 7 blocks of approximately 22 storeys each.

The station is expected to be up and running in 2021. In addition, Marymount MRT station, on the circle line, is also within walking distance.
With these 2 MRT stations, residents will have no problems getting to various parts of the Island.
Thomson East Coast Line brings you to Orchard in the city or woodlands to the north, while the Circle line brings you to West Coast area or the Eastern Party of Singapore.

- Blk 2, 4, 6, 8, 12: 23 storeys
- Blk 10: 22 storeys

- Blk 2, 4, 16: 9 units
- Blk 6, 8: 8 units

At pricing of S$1,500 psf, Jade Scape offers very good value for money considering some of the surrounding condominiums are trading at similar or higher prices.
For example, Tresalveo, which completed in 2012, registered average psf prices of S$1,450 according to 99.co.
A 603 sqft, 1 bedroom unit was sold in late 2017 at a price of S$875,000 while a 1,001 sqft unit was sold at S$1,400 psf in the middle of 2017.
In comparison, Jade Scape’s 1 BR (527 sqft) will move from S$838,000, the 2 BR (646 to 775 sqft) will move from S$988,000 and 3 BR (904 to 1,152 sqft) units will move from S$1.38m.
It will be the only and newest condominium in the Marymount area, and is competitively priced when compared with Sky Vue and Sky Habitat which had transacted more than S$1,800 per square foot.
Given Jade Scape’s proximity to three MRT stations (Upper Thomson on the upcoming TEL line, Marymount on the circle line and Bishan on the North South Line), the location is fairly favourable.
In addition, Jade Scape condo is located near good schools such as Catholic High School and Raffles Institution. For families who are doing long range planning of 10 to 15 years ahead when their children grow up, this would be one attractive factor of the condo’s location.
The developer of Jade Scape condo is Qingjian. The developer has been involved in various public and private construction projects such as Natura Loft Bishan, Nin Residence Potong Pasir, RiverParc Residence Punggol and Riversound Residence Sengkang among many others.
In addition, Qingjian has engaged Paul Noritika, an award winning arhcitect, to design Jade Scape. The project will also incorporate smart living features with their hiLife app that incorporates functions such as smart sleep sensors, smart control panels and smart IP cameras.
