    High-end home market going off the boil

    Developers are testing the market to see if their projects will sell

    By UMA SHANKARI


    MOST developers are still holding off launching luxury condominiums, but a few projects are slowly being put on the market.

    Frasers Centrepoint has launched and sold about 30 units at its 302-unit Martin Place Residences, with apartments going for about $1,800 per square foot (psf) on average.

    Martin Place Residences is in the River Valley neighbourhood in District 9.


    And nearby, SC Global Developments said last week it had released and sold 30 apartments in its Martin No 38, which has 91 units in total.

    The average price fetched was $2,130 psf, with sales coming at $1,881-$2,494 psf.

    Developers are pushing out luxury condo projects cautiously, with most releasing them in small phases.

    Many are also trying to test the market to see if their high-end homes will sell and gauge how much buyers will be willing to pay.

    Yesterday, the en-bloc purchasers of Lincoln Lodge said they will be launching the new development on the site - Lincoln Suites - by early next year.

    But the developers - Koh Brothers, Heeton Holdings, KSH Holdings and Lian Beng Group, which each have an equal stake in the project - will only release some of the project's 175 units in the first phase.

    And current residents of Lincoln Lodge will probably be allowed to stay in their homes well into next year.

    'We are not going to launch all the units at one go,' said Francis Koh, chief executive of Koh Brothers. 'The price will be determined by buyers' willingness to buy.'

    Prices will be similar to or 'even lower than' comparable projects nearby, Mr Koh said.

    Units in the newly-built nearby development, Park Infinia at Wee Nam, are going for $1,300-$1,600, property consultants said.

    The consortium bought Lincoln Lodge for $243 million, or $1,449 psf per plot ratio, including an estimated development charge of $413,000, in June last year at the height of the en bloc frenzy.

    They then decided to hold off tearing down the existing project, and have instead allowed occupants to keep renting apartments for at least six months from the sale completion date in July this year.

    Now, the showflat for Lincoln Suites will be built with Lincoln Lodge still standing.

    Depending on the market response, the leases of the tenants could be extended past January next year.

    In the first place, this area condos like Trillium, Cosmo, Martin Pl, etc not marketed to locals. Last time Valley Park, Aspen, etc also marketed to foreigners first. That's why the price. When foreigners don't buy then they market to locals. Have some pride

    I was to the soft launch months back
    That time they were very keen to offload some less interesting facing at 1200psf only
    The reason I did not consider is cos of the proximity of the temple
    And the surge in better location along River Valley
    I think its not worth it, as also the layout takes out space as the planter area is quite big

    Exclamation Crazy rush for CCR properties has begun

    Typical Singaporeans. Everyone is now rushing to buy properties in prime districts, this fear of missing the boat is intensifying, judging by the shoe-counts in property launches.

    Lai ah Lai ah! Dan kuku dan buay boh ah!

    Let's see how high they are prepared to chase up the prices. Wonder whether most pple are buying for own stay or investment.

    My instincts as an investor tell me I should stay away.

    At the entrance leading up to Martin Place Residence, one long queue of BMWs, Mercedes-Benzs and Porsches. Only a few Japanese cars. Crazy, man! Looks like the wealthy are coming out in full force.

    ok lah, in front shop houses not exactly blocked, but not exactly good view either. the last block is also taller than Robertson Edge, maybe that's why they 4 bedrooms Capitaland refuse to let go at cheap prices.

    Agree that higher floor of Rivergate and Regency Park are not blocked. In fact for RG, some of the units Lippo are releasing has some of the best views but asking above 1400psf I heard.

    80% of Martin Place Residences units launched sold over weekend

    By Ng Baoying, Channel NewsAsia | Posted: 18 May 2009 1924 hrs


    SINGAPORE: Eighty per cent of the high-end Martin Place Residences condominums launched were sold over the weekend.

    A third of the 302 units available have been launched.

    The freehold Martin Place Residences is just a few minutes from the heart of Singapore's prime Orchard Road shopping belt.

    Developer Frasers Centrepoint said the units were transacted at between S$1,260 and S$1,700 per square foot.

    Six in 10 buyers were from Singapore, while the rest were foreigners from countries like Malaysia and Indonesia.

    Frasers Centrepoint attributed the strong response to its pricing.

    The initial 28 units that were sold last year were priced between S$1,700 and S$2,000 per square foot.
