White ION Spa is a revolutionary new form of hydrotherapy developed in Japan that brings ground breaking health and beauty benefits. 

The White ION Spa provides a consistent mixture of Micro and Nano bubbles that are less than 20 micrometer in diameter that penetrates into the skin pores to remove away dirt and impurities from under the skin.

These Micro-Nano bubbles carry rich concentration of oxygen and helps improve blood circulation, cellular respiration and tissue regeneration. 

It produces 50,000 to 120,000 negative ions per cm3 as compared with the waterfall producing 5000 to 10,000 per cm3. These negative ions attract naturally to our positively charged skin, to penetrate skin pores and remove impurities which help to neutralise free radicals in the body and enhance serotonin roduction in the body to promote restful sleep and wellness relaxation.

The continuous forming and bursting fo the Micro-Nano bubbles generate ultrasonic waves that are soothing, relaxing and calming to the sore and tired muscles.




Yishun Master Plan 1

Best described as a family-oriented town, Yishun provides a comprehensive suite of amenities for all ages. Over the next 5 years, Yishun will be reinvigorated with new malls, hawker centres and cycling paths while the transport infrastructure will be enhanced to improve connectivity for residents

Yishun Master Plan

The Criterion EC: Housing: More amenities for better living
With its wide range of facilities and pleasant neighbourhoods, Yishun continues to attract many new residents. In the coming years, new housing areas in the southern and eastern parts of Yishun will be developed progressively, providing greater options for potential home owners. More facilities will also be added to create a better living environment for residents:

  • An integrated transport hub in the town centre that will incorporate a bus interchange, shopping mall, community club and a town plaza
  • A community hospital, which will complement Khoo Teck Puat Hospital next door
  • Two new nursing homes along Yishun Central and Yishun Ring Road will serve the needs of our elderly residents
  • A new hawker centre next to Yishun Park will provide more places for eating out
  • More childcare facilities
  • Retail shops and eating houses will be conveniently located near housing estates

The Criterion EC: Leisure: New reasons to love the outdoors

Already enjoying easy access to Lower Seletar Reservoir, Yishun Park and a number of smaller parks, Yishun residents can look forward to more green spaces for recreation as well as better connections between the many parks within Yishun and other green spaces further away:

  • The Round Island Route will provide residents with fresh ways to explore the nature spots of other towns island-wide
  • The addition of more neighbourhood parks and green spaces
  • The expansion of the park connector network in Yishun will link residents to more parks

University in Punggol


Condo- High Park Residences- Better routes

The Criterion EC: Transport: Faster, alternative routes
Travelling downtown or to other regions of Singapore will be faster with the following road improvements and enhancements to public transport, including:

  •  The new road, Yishun Avenue 8, will connect to Seletar West Link to provide an alternative route to the Central, Tampines and Seletar expressways
  • The junction of Lentor Avenue and Yishun Avenue1 will be improved to enable smoother traffic flow
  • The extensive cycling routes will enable convenient access to the town centre, MRT stations, amenities and nearby towns
  • Expansion of CTE/TPE/SLE interchange and construction of road between TPE and Yishun Ave 6

In addition, we will create five new road connections to improve the connectivity between the expressway and the road network:

  1. From Seletar West Link to CTE;
  2. From CTE to Seletar West Link;
  3. From Seletar West Link to Yio Chu Kang Road;
  4. From Yio Chu Kang Road to Seletar West Link; and
  5. From TPE (Westbound) to Seletar West Link

The new road link between Yishun Avenue 1 to Yishun Avenue 6 and the widening of Seletar West Link is the second phase of the project.  As part of this new road link, we will remark a stretch of Yishun Avenue 1 from dual 1-lane to three lanes in the direction towards TPE and two lanes in the direction towards Yishun. We will widen the existing Seletar West Link from dual 1-lane to dual 3-lanes.

Once completed, motorists who travel from Yishun Town to CTE, for instance, could save up to 10 minutes of travelling time. There will also be better traffic conditions along Lentor Avenue and Yishun Avenue 2.


The 3 bedrooms in The Criterion start from price of between S$619,000 and S$780,000. The higher end of prices for Signature EC and Criterion EC is in the average of S$853,000 and S$866,000. Hence, they have a high upside potential for the investment that homebuyers place down. At the same time, they are able to enjoy the vast and new facilities that the developments offer. Call Now +65 90070868 for More information.

EC- Article on Potential on ECs

Owners of Executive Condominiums (EC) stand a huge capital potential appreciation in due of the low entry price to purchase a unit compared to private condominiums.

After a period of 10 years, the EC will be privatised, changing its status to be on level to a private condominium. Foreigners will be able to purchase the unit then. Owners typically enjoy a capital gain after their EC is privatised.

The above table shows a significant increase in capital appreciation for EC owners. 

Purchasing an EC in The Criterion is extremely promising as we may look into such capital appreciation after it becomes privatised over time.

EC- Article on EC drawing more buyers

As the entry price for an Executive Condominium (EC) is much lower than a private condominium, demand for ECs has been on the rise. New EC units are generally 15-30% cheaper than private condominiums. In addition, first timer are entitled to receive a CPF Housing Grant of up to S$30,000. These make EC an extreme worthwhile asset to purchase. 

Physical features are similar when comparing between a new executive condominium with a private condominium. This include facilities such as gym, clubhouse, security guard, tennis court, swimming pool and many more.

Not only will residents enjoy living in The Criterion EC as a wellness development, together with the lush greenery and tranquility that Yishun is offering, residents will have a long term investment with high profit margin.

EC- Article on price gap closing between EC and private

When doing a comparison between an executive condominium and private condominium, we know that both EC and private condominiums offer the same features such as swimming pool, gym, tennis court and many more, 

As resale executive condominiums are typically larger in space comparing to its counterpart and with a lower entry price, demand has increased for the resale ECs. This has led to a narrowing of price gap.

Owners of resale ECs have profited greatly in the market with their low entry price and they had enjoyed the bigger space and same facilities.

With the new private condominiums in the vicinity transacting at about S$1000 psf, makes The Criterion EC a value buy as it will be 20-30% more affordable than other developments around.

With the Northern Region of Singapore transforming into a life-style and commercial hub, the attractive pricing of The Criterion EC, being 20-30% more affordable than other new private condominiums within the vicinity, will offer a significant upside for its homebuyers.
