Sceneca Residece by MCC
Sceneca Residence, an upcoming development on the 99-year leasehold Tanah Merah Kechil Link site, will be a mixed-use development. It comprises commercial space of about 21,528 sqft on the ground floor and about 265 residential units. It will be jointly developed by MCC Land (Singapore), The Place Holdings, and Ekovest Development (S).
An eye-catching attribute of this site is its location directly in front of the Tanah Merah MRT station. The proximity to the Tanah Merah MRT station on the East-West Line (EWL) provides effortless access to commercial hubs in Tampines and Paya Lebar.
Sceneca Residence is nearby Changi Business Park, Changi Airport and the exciting future developments in Changi East. It is also a straight train ride to major job centres in Raffles Place and Jurong East on the EWL. Currently, the Tanah Merah MRT station is one stop from the Expo MRT interchange station which is also linked to the Downtown Line. The Expo station will also be connected to the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) which will further enhance the accessibility to the city and northern parts of Singapore when the TEL is ready from 2024.
Through a joint development, MCC Land, Ekovest Developments, and The Place Holdings will develop Sceneca Residence. The developers can harness their resources, experts and industry experience to bring out the best of the Sceneca Residence and take advantage of its strategic location right next to Tanah Merah MRT station.
The city fringe location in Outside Central Region (OCR) means that the upcoming development will enjoy steady demand. The supply here is low, which has helped to stabilise the prices. Besides, featuring commercial units makes the residence more appealing since nearby amenities are limited.
Sceneca Residence is well situated between the New Upper Changi Road and Tanah Merah Kechil Road. It is within easy reach of Changi Business Park. It enjoys good access to neighbourhood amenities, including Bedok Point, Bedok Mall, Bedok Food Centre, and 58 New Upper Changi Road Market & Food.
And, with an excellent transport system, the future residents of Sceneca Residence will meet their daily needs easily.

Tanah Merah (Chinese: 丹那美拉 Tamil: தானா மேரா), is a geographical region located along the south-eastern coast of the East Region of Singapore. Although its boundaries aren't exactly clear, it is often widely accepted that term "Tanah Merah", is used to refer to the southern coast of present-day Bedok, Tampines, Changi and Changi Bay.
The name "Tanah Merah" appears in the seventeenth century (1604) map by Manuel Godinho de Erédia on Singapore, written as Tana Mera. This place name is likely to have been an important reference point for the orang laut (sea people) in their activities in the region.
The Malay name for this area is derived from the red lateritic cliffs along the coast that were visible from the sea, hence the name Tanah Merah or "red land". The earliest written reference comes from James Horsburgh's 1806 chart of "Singapore and Malacca", which has the name "Red Cliffs". Later, two sets of red cliffs were identified in Franklin and Jackson's 1830 map: "Large Red Cliff" (Tanah Merah area) and "Small Red Cliff" (present Bedok area) and "2nd Red Cliffs" (Tanah Merah area). J.E. Tassin's 1836 Map of Singapore refers to the area as "1st Red Cliffs" (Bedok area) and "2nd Red Cliffs" (Tanah Merah area).
Old maps also show the existence of Tanah Merah Road as early as the 1840s, which stretched from Kallang River to Changi Point. Now, the road ran mostly along the original route but was renamed Geylang Road, Changi Road and Upper Changi Road, with a section between Siglap Road and Tanah Merah Kechil Road lost after the hills of Chai Chee and Bedok were levelled, and another short section lost under Changi Airport. Later, the road leading to "Large Red Cliff" was named "Tanah Merah Besar Road" while the other was named "Tanah Merah Kechil Road". Besar means "large" while Kechil means "little" in Malay.
The presence of weathered lateritic soil provided the red-orange colouring of the area that led to its name even before Raffles' founding of Singapore. The exposed red lateritic soils were probably visible to many passing boats and hence the "landmark" was captured in early maps of Singapore.
