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, Far East Orchard was acquired by Far East Organization in 1987 and was renamed Orchard Parade Holdings Limited in 1991. In July 2012, it adopted the new name of Far East Orchard Limited to better reflect its close alignment with its substantial shareholder and leverage on the “Far East” brand. Far East Orchard has been listed on the Mainboard of the Singapore Exchange since 1968.
An established developer, Far East Orchard has delivered a number of successful residential, commercial and hospitality developments in Singapore. Its latest completed project is SBF Center, a premier development with office and medical spaces set in a park-like environment within the Central Business District. Together with Frasers Centrepoint Limited and Sekisui House, Ltd, it is currently developing RiverTrees Residences, a residential project located along the Punggol Reservoir. Over at Woodlands Regional Centre, Singapore’s Northern Gateway and upcoming business hub, Far East Orchard is jointly developing an integrated office development, Woods Square, with Far East Organization and Sekisui House, Ltd. Far East Orchard has also successfully developed quality landed, cluster and high-rise residences such as euHabitat, Floridian, The Nexus, Glendale Park, Regent Grove, Seasons View, Seasons Park, Kew Green, Kew Residencia and The Manor Houses.
In Malaysia, Far East Orchard has recently completed the redevelopment of its commercial building in Kuala Lumpur into a hotel – Oasia Suites Kuala Lumpur.
Since 2014, Far East Orchard has expanded into Australia and the United Kingdom (“UK”). Together with Australia’s Toga Group, Far East Orchard’s first overseas joint venture project - Harbourfront Balmain, is a mixed-use residential and retail/commercial development built along Sydney's iconic harbourfront. In the UK, Far East Orchard has a collection of purpose-built student accommodation properties in Brighton and Newcastle upon Tyne. Far East Orchard’s latest acquisition, in the prime central borough of the City of Westminster, London, is a former fire station slated for residential redevelopment.
Redefining itself through a strategic transformation of the business in 2012, Far East Orchard expanded into the complementary business lines of hospitality management and healthcare real estate segments.
Through its hospitality partnerships with The Straits Trading Company and Toga Group in 2013, Far East Orchard’s hospitality arm - Far East Hospitality - has grown beyond Singapore and Malaysia, into Australia, Denmark, Germany, Hungary and New Zealand.
