About Riverfront Residences Developers
Oxley Holdings Limited
Oxley Holdings Limited (“Oxley” or “the Group”) is a home-grown Singaporean property developer. Oxley is principally engaged in the business of property development and property investment. Since its inception, the Group’s accelerated growth has resulted in a burgeoning presence both locally and overseas. It now has a presence across twelve geographical markets.
The Group has a diversified portfolio comprising development and investment projects in Singapore, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Cyprus, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, China, Myanmar, Australia, Japan and Vietnam. Oxley’s expertise does not lie solely in property development; the Group also renders project management and consultancy expertise in Myanmar.
Oxley Holdings’ property development portfolio encompasses choice residential, commercial and industrial projects. Key elements of the Group’s choice developments include prime locations, desirable lifestyle features and preferred designs. With a keen grasp of market sentiments and trends, Oxley has achieved remarkable growth since its inception.
As part of its strategic expansion, the Group has also entered into partnerships with reputable local and overseas developers as well as business partners. In 2013, the Group acquired a 20% stake in Galliard (Group) Limited, a leading property developer in the United Kingdom. Galliard (Group) is a property development, hospitality and management group overseeing a wide variety of developments across London and Southern England. Since then, Oxley Holdings has also acquired a 40% stake in Pindan Group Pty Ltd, an integrated project group based in Western Australia, and a 15% stake in United Engineers, a Singaporean property development and engineering company that was founded in 1912.
In 2008, with more than a decade of experience in the property and construction industry, Oxley’s founder Mr Ching Chiat Kwong spotted a gap in the market that needed to be filled. He observed that there was an increasing demand for affordable private residential properties amongst young working adults – piqued by an innate desire for a more sophisticated and vibrant lifestyle.
By then, Mr Ching had successfully developed and launched more than 13 property development projects in Singapore, all of which were fully sold within three months of their respective launches.
In mid-2009, Mr Ching, together with current Deputy CEO Mr Eric Low See Ching, as well as substantial shareholder Mr Tee Wee Sien, entered into a joint-venture to develop properties that would impact the industry. This partnership enabled them to leverage each other’s financial resources and expertise. Oxley Holdings Pte Ltd was incorporated in Singapore on 16 March 2010 as a private company limited by shares. On 13 October 2010, the Company was converted to a public company limited by shares and subsequently renamed “Oxley Holdings Limited”.
Oxley Holdings Limited was listed on SGX Catalist in October 2010 and made its transfer of listing to the SGX Mainboard in February 2013.
Oxley’s success has been attributed to its keen sense of judgement paired with astute foresight. Spotting development trends is an integral aspect of the Group’s work process. Having pioneered the concept of the shoebox apartment wave and swanky business hubs, what now solidifies its reputation and presence both locally and overseas is the boldness that influences and fuels each project.
Key examples of Oxley’s choice developments include Royal Wharf, a waterfront township development in London, The Peak and The Bridge, two mixed-use developments in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, as well as Dublin Landings, the largest mixed-use development in the business district of Dublin, Ireland.
The Group’s willingness to venture out of its comfort zone and its determination never to rest on its laurels have brought it where it is today. Beyond its commercial success, however, Oxley is keenly focused on nurturing employees and giving back to the community. As to what, Mr Ching would say, “Development is about changing the landscape of towns and building communities. Through thoughtful development, we want to create an environment that allows people to build their dreams”.
