The ultimate guide to Buona Vista

The ultimate guide to Buona Vista

If you didn’t know that Buona Vista was part of the Queenstown district, you’d be forgiven. While Queenstown retains much of its old-world charm, Buona Vista seems to have hurtled into the distant future with the development of the high-tech business park one-north. Think Mediapolis, Fusionopolis, Biopolis, the ‘Sandcrawler’ building and even The Star Vista, which are architectural marvels that give the subzone a distinct sci-fi skyline.   One thing’s for sure – the Silicon Valley working crowd has created fertile ground for hipster cafés and bars, making this the new cool spot in the West. And Buona Vista (meaning ‘good view’ in Italian) will forever live up to its name for its serene parks and the awesome natural vistas you can catch from its hilly ridges.
