The Criterion is a 505-unit executive condominium (EC) located along Yishun Street 51, which is a only three-minute drive from Khatib MRT. Units include two- to five-bedroom types and penthouses.

The development consists of 10 13-storey blocks. Some residents, such as owners of the three-bedroom units, can opt for flexi layouts. One of the bedrooms in a three-bedder can be modified into two smaller rooms, or to convert half of it into a walk-in wardrobe for the adjacent master bedroom.

The project is located in a relatively quiet part of Yishun, so privacy is a given. Wisteria Mall, slated to open in 2018, will be a five-minute walk away. Northpoint Shopping Centre and Yishun 10, which houses Golden Village Cinemas Yishun, are a five-minute drive away.

Schools in the vicinity include Naval Base Primary School, Northland Primary School, Northbrooks Secondary School, Chung Cheng High School (Yishun) and Yishun Junior College.

The Criterion is easily accessible via major expressways such as the SLE, CTE and TPE. CDL will be providing residents with a shuttle bus service to the nearest MRT stations in the first year.

The Brownstone is a 638-unit executive condominium consisting of two- to five-bedroom units.

Made up of eight 12-storey blocks, the project draws inspiration from the rustic charm of New York’s Brownstone row houses. It is located near the upcoming Canberra MRT station and fronts two of Sembawang’s main thoroughfares, Sembawang Road and Canberra Link.

Sembawang Shopping Centre and Sun Plaza are nearby and Jalan Legundi, an up-and-coming lifestyle enclave with many new cafés, is just a two-minute drive away.

Thanks to the government’s revitalisation plans for the North, residents at The Brownstone will have easier access to the future Seletar Aerospace Park, Yishun Community Hospital, Admiralty Medical Centre and Woodlands Integrated Healthcare Campus.

A Neighbourhood Centre containing a food court, supermarket and other shops right beside Canberra MRT station is also being built. In addition, the Sembawang and Seletar Country Clubs are within a 10-minute drive away.

Schools in the neighbourhood include Sembawang Primary School, Wellington Primary School, Sembawang Secondary School and Ahmad Ibrahim Secondary School.

The Brownstone is accessible via Yishun Avenue 2 and expressways such as the SLE and BKE.
