New Bahru is the new kid on the lifestyle destination block, and it has pulled out all the stops to ensure you won't be looking any further. A project by The Lo & Behold Group, New Bahru (Bahru translating to "new" in Malay) is also Singapore's first-ever creative cluster and positions itself as the hotspot of curated brands and novel market concepts.

New Bahru’s website just launched last March 25 ahead of its opening in May 2024, teasing the public with a glimpse of what awaits them in the second quarter of the year. To keep you on your toes, here's what to know from the latest creative lifestyle hub!

Concept

New Bahru, located at 46 & 58 Kim Yam Road, calls the former Nan Chiau High School in the River Valley its home. With a nod to the old structure as a place of learning, New Bahru brands itself as the quintessential destination for exciting experiences and discoveries.

The development was led by The Lo & Behold Group's joint-venture partner, Sunray Group Holdings, and is supported by an array of designers and specialists including FARM (architecture), OMFGCO (branding), Wistec (engineering), This Humid House (landscaping), SWITCH (lighting), and Playpoint (playground). The group also got Nice Projects into the mix as its creative consultant to complete the New Bahru vision: a thoughtful and vibrant community for wellness, hospitality, retail, and food and beverage groups to gather.
