The Colonnade will enjoy enhanced visibility and connectivity in the new upcoming premium residential hot-spot of SPR, which has all the social infrastructure in place and is seeing increased occupancies with first deliveries starting on the Golf Course Extension Road.”

Once complete, the Colonnade project will offer an eclectic blend of high street retail options and specialty restaurants with emphasis on open-air dining that will make every visit a time truly well spent.
