The Ascott has opened lyf Funan Singapore, the largest co-living property in south-east Asia. It is also the first property under Ascott’s new ‘lyf’ brand, which the company says is “managed by millennials for the millennials and millennial-minded”.
Located in the heart of Singapore’s Civic & Cultural District, lyf Funan Singapore is at the epicentre of the city-state’s buzzing retail, commercial, social and cultural belt. A sheltered underground walkway to the City Hall Mass Rapid Transit interchange gives easy access to the rest of the city.
The nine-storey co-living property spans about 11,250m2 (121,000 square feet) in gross floor area, housing 412 rooms across 279 apartments. Catering to both short and long stays, lyf Funan Singapore is ideal for leisure and business travellers, expatriates, global assignees as well as digital nomads.
lyf Funan Singapore is an integral part of CapitaLand’s Funan integrated development, which also comprises two office blocks and a mall offering cutting-edge retail concepts, coworking spaces, urban farm, theatre, cinema, artisan shops, craft workshops, gymnasium, rock climbing, and futsal facility.
Mindy Teo, deputy managing director of lyf, said: “Residents can plug into the local community and form connections with like-minded trendsetters, jetsetters, business executives, technopreneurs and creatives. A social hub that offers a new way to belong, we see lyf playing a key role in bringing people together to discover new possibilities, spark creative ideas and contribute to the region’s innovation landscape.”
