After a brief respite in the property market, new property launches are back to make for a hot and heated summer.
Five new residential developments across the island are offering home buyers plenty of sweet ptions to pick from. Properties in the city centre include the 366-unit Corals at Keppel Bay near HarbourFront MRT station and Liv on Sophia near Dhoby Ghaut MRT station. The proximity of these developments to transport and amenities should mean they are popular with buyers and investors alike. Corals at Keppel Bay is situated beside the Caribbean condominium and previewed the weekend past. 100 more units will be launched this weekend. Prices range from $2, 000 psf for a one-bedroom unit of between 570 and 732 sq ft. Ferra condominium in Leonie Hill in the prime district 9 also released its remaining 22 units of its 104 units. A 732 sq ft unit is going for $3,160 psf.
Fancy being even nearer the city centre? Liv on Sophia on Adis Road offers 64 two-bedders starting from $2,500 psf. Buyers will have to wait a little longer for these though as they are launching only end of this month or early June. Also in the property launch pipelines is the mixed-use project King Albert Park Residences. With the Bukit Timah Shopping Centre and Bukit Timah Plaza nearby, King Albert Park Residences will add even more colour to the area with its 107 retail units and 142 residential units. It will also be flanked by the upcoming King Albert Park and Beauty World MRT stations. Property agents are expecting prices to start at $2, 000 psf for the smallest 484 sq ft units.
And further in the East, Stratum in Pasir Ris launched last Saturday with a $900 psf median. The 99-year leasehold condominium will stand across Elias Mall and the new Singapore University of Technology and Design. Will this increase the potential investment value of the property? How will other older condominiums nearby fare?
Another new suburban launch to look out for is the Jewel at Buangkok, just 2-minutes away from Buangkok MRT station. To be launched within the next few weeks, a small 463 sq ft apartment is expected to go for $1, 000 psf. In an area yet to be saturated with private high-rise properties, how will this new project fare? Will it bring more interest and development into the area?
