Far East Orchard Limited
Far East Orchard Limited (Far East Orchard) is a member of Far East Organization, Singapore’s largest private property developer. Incorporated as Ming Court Limited in 1967, the Company came under Far East Organization in 1987 and was renamed Orchard Parade Holdings Limited in 1991. In July 2012, the Company adopted its new name of Far East Orchard Limited to better reflect its close alignment with its substantial shareholder and to leverage on the “Far East” brand. Far East Orchard is listed on the Mainboard of the Singapore Exchange since 1968.
An established developer, Far East Orchard delivered a number of successful residential, commercial and hospitality developments. The latest completed project is euHabitat, a first-of-its-kind integrated residential development. It is currently developing RiverTrees Residences, a joint venture with Frasers Centrepoint Limited and Sekisui House, Ltd. For commercial development projects in Singapore, Woods Square and SBF Center are joint developments with Far East Organization. Far East Orchard has also successfully developed quality landed, cluster and high-rise residences, such as The Floridian, The Nexus, Glendale Park, Regent Grove, Seasons View, Kew Green, Kew Residencia and The Manor Houses.
Since 2014, the Company has expanded beyond Singapore with its first joint venture property development project, Harbourfront Balmain in Sydney, Australia, with Australia’s Toga Group. In United Kingdom, Far East Orchard has recently acquired purpose-built student accommodation investment and development properties in Brighton and Newcastle upon Tyne.
Redefining itself through a strategic transformation of the business in 2012, Far East Orchard has extended into new complementary business lines in hospitality management and healthcare real estate segments.
Through its partnerships with The Straits Trading Company Limited and Toga Group in 2013, the Company’s hospitality arm - Far East Hospitality - has grown beyond Singapore and Malaysia, into Australia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary and New Zealand. The Company’s hospitality portfolio now has a global footprint with more than 10 hospitality assets under its ownership. In addition, it manages 90 properties with over 14,000 rooms.

Far East Orchard also owns a portfolio of medical suites in Singapore's premier medical hub of Novena. These purpose-built medical suites in Novena Medical Center and Novena Specialist Center are conceptualised to set the benchmark for a new generation of healthcare buildings with five star quality finishes, advanced technology and modern infrastructure for medical specialists. A recently completed project, the 31-storey SBF Center located in the Central Business District, offers a broad spectrum of office and medical spaces set in park-like greenery.
Today, Far East Orchard has a diversified global real estate portfolio in both property development and investment, and is also a vertically integrated regional hospitality owner and operator with a sizeable overseas network.
