It will be built by distinguished developer SDB Singapore, Selangor Dredging Berhad (SDB).
Known to the 1950s and 1990s generation as Kickapoo Building, or Sinalco Building, the site is a unique opportunity to bring out the heritage and significance of conservation and national heritage.
Jui Residences has been designed to reflect art deco heritage which is inspired by National Aerated Water Co Ltd building, located within the grounds of the devclopment. The art deco heritage can been seen through the vertical flutes on the facade, arched detailings on the balconies and wide inset curves on the podium.
Located right next to Kallang River, this 18-storey tower building presents 117 contemporarily crafted units with natural lighting and ventilation throughout each home.

Situated along Serangoon Road, it will have excellent connectivity to the island via major expressways and minutes to the City.
The main facing of the development is Kallang Sungei, which will give a very natural and water body view for the development. Entrance will be via Moonstone Lane.
The development will consist of smaller investor-grade units from 1br to bigger family-sized units. The final information will be released on approved by the relevant government authorities.
Then and Now
The origin of Serangoon’s name refers to “Ranggong”, a bird commonly found in Riverine swamps around Serangoon River. Serangoon was then an area for logistics movements and warehousing business, due to the easy access and connection to Kallang River, which was then a busy waterway for goods and transport. It was also home to National Aerated Water Co Ltd. Founded in 1954, this building manufactured soda drinks, which included local favourites such as Sinalco and Kickapoo.
Now, Serangoon is an established address, with convenient amenities for its community. This would include NEX Shopping mall, a newly renovated and refurbished Chomp Chomp food centre, the Singapore Sports Hub, Kallang Basin Swimming Complex, and notable schools such as St Andrew’s Junior College and the Stamford American International School.
Selangor Dredging Berhad (SDB)
Jui Residences is a freehold site that Selangor Dredging Berhad (SDB) secured at $47 million. Land bidding details and bidding price was submitted by Champsworth Development subsidiary, Tiara Land.
The original zoning of the land is Industrial Zoning, to convert into Residential Use, the developer had to top up a deferential charge and change of use fees which totalled to approximately 22.6m.
Based on Gross Plot Ratio and Land Use estimation, the site will yield about 100-130 units of average sized 700-800sqft estimated. Champsworth Development is owned by its partner company SDB International of a share of 50%.
National Aerated Water Company
The site of Jui Residences was owned by former Singapore National Aerated Water and Beverage Company, well known on the everyday brand such as Sinalco and Kickapoo, which is still sold in various coffeeshops in Singapore.
It was build and operated in the late 1920s by three Ching brothers, Ching Kwong Yew, Ching Kwong Kuen and Ching Kwong Lum. National Aerated Water Company oversaw the manufacturing and led the distribution through its distribution channels and partners. These Soda Drinks are a hit with the middle aged and older generation and is a fond reminder of the beautiful heritage of this site that has to offer. Even after it ceased operation on the onset of year 1990s, there were no major operation on the site and was left idle and vacant due to a major tussle over the shares of the asset.
Developer Selangor Dredging Berhad (SDB) Champsworth Development is estimated to have paid $756 psf ppf for this bidding and plot. National Aerated Water Company had a fabulous view of Kallang River. Kallang River spans 10km, spanning from Lower Peirce Reservoir to the coastal of Nicoll along Nicoll Highway.
URA Directive – Conservation of Heritage Buildings
One of the unique characteristics and style of Jui Residences would be the conservation of the National Aerated Company Building. In a statement to The Straits Times on Thursday (Dec 15), a URA spokesman said: “We recognise the architectural and heritage value of the National Aerated Water Company’s building and its role as a landmark in the area.”This is a private property, and we will engage the building owner to explore the possibility of conserving the building.”

When the site was sold to Selangor Dredging Berhad (SDB) Champsworth Development, the Heritage Community was alarmed and concerned, the news and potential demolishing of the building after all, bottled iconic and well known beverages loved by Singaporeans such as Sinalco, Kickapoo Joy Juice, Royal Crown Cola, and Green Spot. You may be enjoyed them in the tall glass bottles before.
There was even a Facebook Page Set up called Save The National Aerated Water Company Building, in a plea to save it. The community has flagged the structure full of art-deco feel to the URA for conservation in 2007. Dr Yeo Kang Shua, from the Singapore University of Technology and Design, said that the building had a unique art deco appearance, and the building’s rear features consists of a unique saw-tooth roof design and structure. He said: “Its clever design allowed a lot of daylight into a very deep factory building therefore minimising the reliance on electricity.”
The assistant professor of architecture and sustainable design added: “I hope that the new owner appreciates the historical significance of the site to Singaporeans and is open to work with the authorities to work on a development plan that is sensitive to the historic structure.”
