Mill@32, formerly known as Leshan Gardens, is a new residential development in the Geylang enclave of Singapore.

The project has undertaken several design and name changes in reference to its historic location. Geylang comes from the Malay word kilang, which means mill, press or factory, and the enclave used to be known for the production of oil from dried coconut flesh.

The development is a cross between industrial aesthetics and Manhattan loft-style architecture. While the project’s brickwall façade has been retained, two new schemes were introduced to the design phase: Old School Cool Living and Industrial Chic Living. Vinyl flooring was incorporated into the development while stucco paint was used to create a feature wall in every unit. Terazzo lookalike tiles were also utilised as a back feature of the bathroom, artfully blending old world and contemporary design.

The project was named Highly Commended, Best Co-Living Space at the PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore) 2021.
