WhiteHaven @ Pasir Panjang | Freehold Condo near NUS | Haw Par Villa MRT


A previous blog entry mentioned The Village, a freehold property located along Pasir Panjang Road. Whitehaven is another condo in the area and is located at 332 Pasir Panjang Road and is even closer to NUS. This means the comments made about The Village with regard to NUS and the large potential tenant pool also holds for Whitehaven.

Whitehaven offers a wider choice of unit types including dual key units which offer owners the option of renting out one unit while staying in the other or have close relatives staying in the second unit. The unit types are differentiated by ceiling height, dual key variants and penthouses ranging from 1-4 bedroom units. The penthouses are also available in 2, 3 and 4 bedroom floor plans and are all equipped with a BBQ pit. In addition, the 2 and 3 bedroom penthouses come with a Jacuzzi and pavilion and the 3 bedroom types enjoy an additional planter. Owners of the 4-bedroom penthouses will enjoy the use of a small pool, attic and BBQ pit. This setup is similar to what's found in the rooftops of some landed properties.

The common facilities are very much standard and include a 50m lap pool, gym and BBQ pits. The main attractiveness of Whitehaven like The Village lies in its proximity to the NUS and Science park areas and also the wide choice of unit types including units with high ceilings, dual key units and smaller and more affordable penthouse units.

Like The Village, Whitehaven has been in the market for some months and it is worth checking out with regards to prices and discounts. Please call or text me at 97323160 or send an email to for further details. More details can also be found at

The Village @ Pasir Panjang

For anyone looking for a home near the NUS area or for a place with a good pool of potential tenants, The Village may fit the bill. It is located in District 05, at 417-471 Pasir Panjang Road, opposite West Coast Park. This a new freehold development by Champsworth Development Pte Ltd, the developers of OKIO in District 12 and Gilstead Two in District 11. T.O.P is targeted for Dec 2016. 

This Singapore property has been in the market for some time and a only few units are left but its a good mix of 2,3 and 4 bedroom units. Towards the tail end, developers are often more flexible with prices so as to move the last few units faster so it definitely worth checking out The Village if you like the West Coast area or looking for a place with tenancy yield. The large potential tenant pool comes from the Science parks, NUS, NUH, expats with children in United Work College (SEA) and Japanese schools in the area.

The design of The Village is retro and the 148 residential apartments are spread between nine 5-storey blocks. The common facilities include a 50m lap pool, retro playground, 3-D tilted lawn, children's pool, gym and a 350m path for strolling, jogging or cycling.

The bus trip is about 6-10 mins. Connectivity to other parts of Singapore is good via the AYE and West Coast Highway. 

The main draw of The Village is its close proximity to NUS, NUH and Science Park II and III and the large tenant pool from these areas. It is also worth looking at for those who enjoy living in the West Coast area.

Junction Nine Residences | Mixed Development in Yishun | Retail, Restaurants and Residential Units

Junction Nine Residences

Mixed developments or sometimes referred to as mixed use developments offer condo living but with retail and restaurants in the same location. This means you won't need to go far for your daily groceries or for a meal on days when you don't feel like slaving over the stove or when you have more pressing things to attend to.

One such example would be the Junction Nine Residences which has a podium of retail shops and restaurants on top of which sit the residential units spread between 2 high rise blocks. An interesting feature of Junction Nine Residences is a block of 2-storey terrace units located on top of the podium, towards the front. Some condominiums such have Thomson Three have a similar thing but minus the retail and restaurants. The 6 terrace units are not landed but do offer some exclusivity while at the same time enjoying the added security and common facilities and of course the retail and restaurants beneath. In case you were wondering, the T.O.P is in Jun 2017.

The commercial part of the development is called Junction Nine. This is a 3-storey retail mall consisting of 146 retail units cum parking podium. So, there's going to be a good mix of shops and restaurants. The residential part called Nine Residences provides a choice of 186 residential units divided between two 11 storey blocks (and that block of terrace units). There is a good mix of 1 to 5 bedroom units available. The residential carpark is thoughtfully separated from the commercial carpark and every unit gets a lot.

Junction Nine Residences is located at 18 Yishun Avenue 9 opposite block 302. This area has a high density of schools nearby including Chong Fu Primary (a very popular school) and Yishun Town Secondary. Dubai based GEMS Education will be setting up a school in a 5 hectare area nearby offering the IB program. This will be a state of the art school and is located at the junction of Yishun Ave 1 and Ave 6 and is expected to be ready next year.

The amenities in the area including the Orchid Country Club where you can dine and bowl without being a member and there is an NTUC tucked underneath Orchid Bowl. Northpoint Shopping, Yishun MRT and Yishun 10 are just down the road and soon access to the TPE and the Seletar Aerospace Park will be improved by the construction of new roads. 

There are still several plots of land in the Yishun area that are reserved for high rise developments and if developers continue to bid vigorously for these sites, there may be positive effects on the value of Junction Nine Residences.
