Gramercy Park - New Condominium on 57, Grange Road, Singapore by CDL

The Grange Road area is right next to Chatsworth where several foreign offices and embassies can be found. The location of Gramercy Park in District 10 is a locale that is popular with expats and high net worth investors. Prices have fallen significantly over the past year and some investors with a bearish outlook on the real estate market will likely hold off for longer. The average psf for units in Gramercy Park is estimated to be in the $2.7 range. The smaller units start at 1.2ksqft for a 2-bedroom unit to over 7.3k for the largest penthouses. As befitting its posh address, the apartments come with high end finishings and designer wardrobe. There is ample parking and some lots are extra wide to accommodate the large luxury cars. Some 30 different facilities including a 50m lap pool are at the disposal of residents.

Gramercy Park is right next to the Orchard shopping areas and most amenities including access to the Orchard Road MRT is all within 1-2km radius. The design of this condominium was conceived by a famous architectural firm, NBBJ and offers excellent views of both the Orchard and Chatsworth area.

Visit our Gramercy Park website to find out more about what this development offers investors and residents alike.

Northpoint City and North Park Residences - The New Jewel In Yishun

North Park Residences and Northpoint City- The New Jewel In Yishun

The new integrated development in Yishun called Northpoint City and North Park Residences will garner a lot of interests due to the extensive and comprehensive range of amenities and the immediate access to the Yishun MRT station.

The History of Yishun

Yishun has come a long way from its days of being home to pepper and pineapple plantations and rustic villages. In the 1980's, 900 hectares of land was set aside to build the Yishun new town. A bus interchange was added in 1987. In 1996, the government started upgrading facilities in the town such as better hawker stalls, shopping areas and parking facilities. At about the same time, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) announced land sales for low and medium-rise private housing. In 2007, the HDB picked Yishun as one of three towns to undergo rejuvenation via its ROH or Remaking Our Heartland plan. In the draft master plan of 2013, the URA announced that Yishun will be re-invigorated with an even wider range of amenities such as new malls, hawker centres and cycling paths.

The Big Picture

As part of the governments decentralization efforts, 4 regional centers are being developed. These are Jurong Lake District, Tampines, Woodlands and Seletar. Yishun is the gateway to the North Innovation Corridor which includes Woodlands Regional Centre, Sembawang, the future Seletar Regional Centre and the Punggol Innovation Cluster. There will be more jobs closer to home as it takes minutes to commute between Yishun and Woodlands. The Woodlands Regional Centre alone has 700,000 sqm of commercial space in the works and will be well served by the new Thomson Line and the North-South Expressway when these are completed. The latter will provide access to Yishun via Sembawang in the north and Lentor Ave in the south.

The New Integrated Development

Clearly, some of these plans are being realised in the new integrated development that is coming up next to Northpoint Shopping Centre at the site of the previous bus interchange. This new development called Northpoint City and the residential section, North Park Residences is a very significant development and is destined to be the crown jewel of Yishun. The amenities within this development will surely be a real magnet for people living in the area as well as those from other parts of Singapore due its access and proximity to both the MRT sysem and expressways such as the CTE, SLE and TPE.

What Northpoint City and North Park Residences Offer?

Looking at the cross section below, North Park Residences sit on top of the retail "block" which comes with a new retail underpass to the Yishun MRT station. This supplements the other existing underpass from Northpoint Shopping Centre and makes it easier for residences to access the Yishun MRT station.

Residents will enjoy not only retail therapy but a childcare centre and the first fully airconditioned community club. In addition to several existing neighborhood parks, residents can take a walk in a town park. Cycling and park connectors in the area are being extended and will be a welcome benefit for those with active lifestyles or for nature lovers.

Those with young children and aged parents will welcome the convenience of nearby healthcare such as those at Khoo Teck Puat Hospital and the community hospital next door. GEMS an international school will also setup business in the area offering the IB program.

Northpoint City will be the largest shopping mall in the north with a gross floor area of 800,000 sqm and will host 500 retail and F&B outlets. People living in North Park Residences will not to go far for their retail and dining needs. Less travel time means more time for family and the more important things in life. As the Yishun MRT station is just a short walk away, visitors wi

Upcoming Sales of Northpoint City and North Park Residences

The sales of North Park Residences are expected to begin in March and units will be priced attractively which is not surprising given the current market and cooling measures. But developments with the right combinations of price, location and amenities will get a lot of interests and this development appears to have all 3.

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
