    GuocoLand to launch Martin Modern condo project in 2H 2017

    Monday, April 24, 2017 - 11:46
    by
    CHAI HUNG
    GUOCOLAND Limited Group will be launching its luxury residential condominium project, Martin Modern , in the second half of 2017, it said in a Singapore Exchange filing on Monday.

    Located at the corner of Martin Place and River Valley Close, the District 9 project will have over 80 per cent of the land area turned into a unique botanic garden and an arboretum of native trees and vegetation, it said.

    The project, which is within the posh residential neighbourhood of Robertson Quay, will have 450 units, all with a view of the gardens, the city or the Singapore River.

    Cheng Hsing Yao, GuocoLand Singapore's group managing director, said: "Martin Modern is in the heart of the city but the moment you cross the main gate, past the mystical driveway to the arrival porch, you will be transported into a tranquil and enchanted garden."

    Seriously, why would anyone buy this and not any of the freehold properties next door or nearby at lower prices?

    To be fair, I think one needs to see it first before making a comment if this is worth the price or not. I am heading there to take a look for myself.

    Multiple reasons, but the ultimately one is that new launch is easier to flip to the next greater fool even if buy at more expensive price vs other properties nearby (since nobody is going to hold a 99-years leasehold for long-term anyway).......

    Anyone going down today? Thinking of popping by since I am vested across the street.
    Drove by the site... land parcel looks huge.

    Feel sorry for Martin Place Residences folks. Flanked by the Buddhist Lodge rebuilding project on one side, and Martin Modern construction on the other.

    Went to take a look this afternoon. For me, the vast landscaping is a distraction to the mostly blocked views. Waiting for the next site closer to the river to be announced according to the agent. I personally am not too keen on it based on its location and massive competition around it. As some forum members here mentioned, there are better deals around for this price. Spot on.

    2 cents,

    Martin Modern condo draws over 2,000 people



    Martin Modern, GuocoLand’s latest residential development, attracted more than 2,000 visitors to its showflat preview over the weekend (8 – 9 July).

    Located at Martin Place in Robertson Quay, it is the first large-scale condominium to be launched in the area in the past eight years.

    When completed by end 2021, it will comprise 450 units set within a botanic garden. A range of two- to four-bedroom apartments from 764 sq ft to 1,798 sq ft are available. Prices start from $1.8 million.

    One of the visitors, X. J. Yan, a Singaporean in her early 50s said: “The layout is elegantly designed and is functional as well as practical.”

    Mohamed Ismail, CEO of marketing agent PropNex Realty, said the response was very strong.

    “In fact, we have been getting numerous enquiries on the ground about Martin Modern over the past few months,” he noted.

    The 99-year leasehold project is expected to be officially launched on 22 July.

    “Many people recognise that the high-end market presents very good value now and are waiting for the right opportunity to enter the market,” said Cheng Hsing Yao, Group Managing Director at GuocoLand Singapore.

    “Martin Modern is coming into the market at a very opportune time. On top of that, it will benefit from the continuing growth and transformation of the Robertson Quay area when the new MRT line and future developments there come up.”

    Looks like lots of flippers around waiting to flip for a profit (without wanting to come out with too much cash upfront at the time of purchase)...........

    For all the reasons quoted to buy Martin Modern, there are many more which are Freehold and of cheaper price (and most likely of better built quality) than Martin Modern nearby......................

    The good days for flipping is gone for good. Cost of flipping, SSD, ABSD, LTV is too high and must have lots of cash.

    heard additional 5% discount thrown in. not that many people buy their "why this 99 year leasehold should sell for more than the freeholds surrounding it" story.

    I'd be amazed if Guocoland can manage to sell 30% of the units by end July.

    High relative psf, blocked views, 99-year leasehold, and the relatively high maintenance fees for the 'concierge' service. Eats into a huge part of the rental. Not exactly near to mrt either.

    To move units at this psf range, it should be selling 500-600sqft units instead.

    The upkeep of the estate, with its extensive greens, will be a hefty burden to the 450 proprietary owners over time.

    At this price point and quantum, there are no lack of choices.

    If they continue to drop a further 5% on launch day, I think they can move the 2+S/3 (non premium) bedroom units at lower quantum. It's all a quantum game these days.

    A friend of mine applied for a 2+S and she got it without having to ballot.

    TBH I don't think the reception to the launch has been overwhelming.

    Stack 13, low-ish floor. She said around $1.9m and I didn't want to press.

    Seemed like she got the news on Fri.

    was there this weekend, agents seems pushy and keen. strangely this guy kept harping on the usable space and didn't go with the "living in a botanic garden" angle.

    it seems that usable space angle is right. from brochure, the balcony is enclosed by a slatted sliding screen as a standard feature. those who want more usable space can either install new screens behind the balcony sliding screens or use the living room sliding screens. the living room is thus enlarged.

    it is very hard to see that there is glass screen behind the slatted balcony screen.

    in fact, developers should install slatted sliding screens as a standard feature on their balconies.

    It's a nice development, and being vested in the neighbourhood for a while, it is a place where there're no lack of tenants, especially Japanese tenants since Liang Court and Robertson Quay is down the street. Too bad it is 99 years leasehold. Otherwise $1.8m for a 2+Study is not too bad.

    Heard the comm for agents is really high for this project. 3-4% depending on your "rank" within your company. Just hearsay.
