New Launches in the Coming Months Despite TDSR 

stockfresh 3446662 business-graph-chart-diagram-bar-up-down sizeS 78de68

Despite the slow down in the market, several new launches are being planned for the next 6 months. In Mar, the number of private dwelling sold fell to only 480 from 739 units in Feb and 572 units in Jan for a total of 1791 units for that quarter. This is the lowest since late 2009 as reported by Savills. Sales are down about 29% from last quarter and 57.9% year on year. The last cooling measure, the TDSR has shown its efficacy in cooling down the market as well as the buying sentiments and ability of many would be buers. But, it has been demonstrated by several projects that there are still buyers for projects with the right combination of design, location and prices. Examples of these are the Hillford (all 281 sold out), Riverbank in Sengkang (84% sold), RiverTrees Residences (73% sold) and The Panorama in Ang Mo Kio (48% sold). The recently launched Commonwealth Towers in Queenstown has also seen a lot if interest due to its location near the city and across the road from the Queenstown MRT. Many developers who bought their land at high prices are relunctant or unable to lower their prices down to what the market now expects. On a positive note, there is recent evidence that developers are now more cautious about their land bids and hopefully this will lead to a moderation of prices in the future with the caveat being that should the market turn around, developers will want to price their units to maximize profits even with land bought at lower prices. Developers who own freehold land from days of old are the ones with the most leverage in terms of timing and profits. Examples would be The Tembusu and Kallang Riverside.

Despite the slow down, several residential developments are in the horizon of the next half year:

  • Kallang Riiverside - Freehold mixed development along the Kallang River offering great views, river side living and proximity to the city and its amenities
  • Coco Palms - Leasehold condo in Pasir Ris Grove offering 1 bedroom units at less than $500k
  • The Rise @ Oxley near Dhoby Ghaut MRT Interchange.
  • Sunnyvale Residences in Teluk Kurau, near Kembangan MRT
  • The Crest by Wing Tai in Tanglin
  • The Bijou in Pasir Panjang
  • Condo at Yishun Central (to be announced)
  • Pollen and Bleu, Farrer Drive
  • New Futura, Leonie Hill Road,
  • Gramercy Park, Grange Road
  • Robin Residences, Robin Road
  • Marina One Residences in the city
  • South Beach Residences in the city
  • Highline Residences by Keppel Land
  • Marine Blue in Marine Parade
  • Others to be announced

Buyers will have multiple choices going forward but if they think it is the right time to jump in, they should be on the look-out for gems based on the benefits and price points and be prepared to act as shown by some of the successful launches last quarter.

ARC380 is a new building to be built at the site of Eminent Plaza and Lavender Food Square and will offer both offices and shops. Eminent Plaza tends to be known more for the Lavender Food Square next door, a rather well known food court along Jalan Besar with many deletable treats to satisfy all tastebuds. This property is strategically placed at the junction of Lavender and Jalan Besar where human and vehicular traffic are both high. The 144 offices in this 16-storey building boast ensuite washrooms which are served by 23 shops and restaurants on Level 1. Connectivity is excellent as the location is close to PIE, ECP and CTE and is served by Farrer MRT which is just 1km away and in 2017 when the future Bendeemer MRT station is scheduled to be completed, this new MRT station will be just 400m away. The central location also means easy access to CBD and the Marina Bay area as well as to government offices such as the Ministry of Manpower and the Immigration department.
