Torque (Singapore) - - CARROS SPECIAL -

Carros is a dream come true for au­to­mo­tive busi­nesses, car en­thu­si­asts and ve­hi­cle own­ers. Lo­cated along Jalan Lam Huat off Kranji Road, Carros sits on a 500,000 square foot site and of­fers 2.3 mil­lion square feet of built-up space. This free­hold strata-ti­tled in­dus­trial devel­op­ment by Kranji Devel­op­ment Pte Ltd, a sub­sidiary of BS Cap­i­tal Pte Ltd, is Sin­ga­pore’s largest automobile hub. The eight-storey mega com­plex, which in­cludes a base­ment level and houses 383 units for sale and lease, is the fruition of BS Cap­i­tal founder, Mr Ray­mond Ng Ah Hua’s vi­sion to con­sol­i­date the au­to­mo­tive in­dus­try un­der one roof. Mr Ng, who is also the Ex­ec­u­tive Chair­man of En­viro-Hub Hold­ings, be­lieves that bring­ing car marts, work­shops, body shops, spare parts shops and other car-re­lated trades to­gether will re­sult in greater syn­ergy and a ONE FOR ALL HUB.

Busi­nesses will ben­e­fit from Carros’ ac­ces­si­bil­ity. It is only a few min­utes’ drive from the Sele­tar Ex­press­way (SLE) and Bukit Timah Ex­press­way (BKE) con­nec­tors. When the re­con­fig­ured North-South Cor­ri­dor (NSC), orig­i­nally known as the North South Ex­press­way, is com­pleted, it will open up new and ex­cit­ing trans­port op­por­tu­ni­ties for Sin­ga­pore. Trav­el­ling time and the com­mut­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to the city will be sig­nif­i­cantly op­ti­mised.

By pub­lic trans­port, Carros is just 1.2km from Kranji MRT sta­tion, and it will be served by the fu­ture Thom­son Line and fu­ture MRT to Jo­hor Bahru. In ad­di­tion, Carros’ prox­im­ity to Wood­lands Re­gional Cen­tre and Wood­lands Check­point opens up links be­yond Sin­ga­pore. Fu­ture de­vel­op­ments around the vicin­ity make Carros a good in­vest­ment. There are two up-and­com­ing In­te­grated Trans­port Hubs in Wood­lands and Yishun. The fu­ture growth of Mar­sil­ing, Yew Tee and Sungei Kadut In­dus­trial Zones will in­crease de­mand for automobile ser­vices in the area. As Carros is a free­hold devel­op­ment, busi­ness own­ers can en­joy peace of mind and have the con­fi­dence to grow their trades with­out wor­ry­ing about short-term leases.

Fur­ther re­as­sur­ing own­ers is the fact that Carros is well-equipped with a com­pre­hen­sive suite of de­sign fa­cil­i­ties to sup­port their busi­ness op­er­a­tions. There is ramp-up ac­cess to all units, and each one has a load­ing/un­load­ing bay in front of it. The ground floor can ac­com­mo­date 40-foot con­tain­ers and the build­ing is served by 11 cargo lifts, five of which are ded­i­cated. There are 15 more that func­tion as pas­sen­ger, ser­vice and fire lifts. The lux­ury of space is an­other ad­van­tage and this trans­lates into smoother ve­hic­u­lar and pedes­trian cir­cu­la­tion, which en­hances the over­all cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence.

Carros’ size, fea­tures and fa­cil­i­ties make it the per­fect venue for car events and a play­ground for car en­thu­si­asts. It played host to the Euro­pean Mo­bile Me­dia As­so­ci­a­tion (EMMA) in May this year, where Heat 1 of the largest In Car En­ter­tain­ment (ICE) com­pe­ti­tion in Sin­ga­pore was at­tended by over 600 par­tic­i­pants, as well as mem­bers of Subaru Car Club, in their 400 cars. Fol­low­ing this re­sound­ing suc­cess, a huge turnout is ex­pected for Heat 2. This will be held on 24 Septem­ber in con­junc­tion with EMMA Style Show, which brings to­gether the lat­est au­to­mo­tive aes­thetic prod­ucts and mod­i­fi­ca­tion parts, and the best body­work pro­fes­sion­als. On 26 Au­gust, Carros was the Start and Fin­ish point for the in­au­gu­ral Night Edi­tion of the an­nual Torque On The Move au­to­mo­tive telematch.

The motoring pub­lic and their fam­i­lies can also look for­ward to a line-up of life­style events cater­ing to their di­verse in­ter­ests, start­ing with the first-ever Sun­day CarMart@ Carros. This is the brain­child of Mr Ng, who rem­i­nisces fondly his ex­pe­ri­ences at Sun­day CarMarts in places such as Balestier Road dur­ing the good old days. He hopes to re­vive th­ese events on a reg­u­lar ba­sis at Carros.

The pos­si­bil­i­ties are lim­it­less and with its strate­gic lo­ca­tion, com­pre­hen­sive lo­gis­tics sup­port, ef­fi­cient space plan­ning and fu­ture growth po­ten­tial, Carros is poised to be­come the des­ti­na­tion for ev­ery­thing car-re­lated and a place where camaraderie among the car com­mu­nity can flour­ish.
