Turning Hip
Sims Urban Oasis is strategically located in an area of growth. In anticipation of the growing appeal of the neighbourhoods around Sims Drive, early mover businesses and entrepreneurs have set up new hip, restaurants, fitness and activity centres in this prime locale, tapping on the increasing pool of residents and expatriates.

Many new businesses have popped up in Sims Urban Oasis’s neighbourhood in the last year. From cafés to design firms and co-working spaces, the area has proved to be magnet for young entrepreneurs in their 20s and 30s, thanks to the relatively affordable rent as compared to similar spaces elsewhere. With the rise of these mid- to high-end F&B outlets, the area is seeing a renewed vibe. It’s been attracting foodies from across the island and is fast becoming a hot new hangout.

Future residents of Sims Urban Oasis can also look forward to more of such contemporary dining outlets and facilities. Here are seven hip hot spots in the neighbourhood:
