    I like Zenith, but it is way too expensive....It would be a more swallowable price at $1k psf.

    Any idea why this project still has unsold units?? Considering it's location and the finishing, i thought it would have been snapped up the moment it's launched.

    I wonder what is the appeal of living opposite a big longkang and the Zion Rd hawker centre? I don't get it?

    And upwards of $1500psf too!!! I don't get it! Oh!!! Some paid up to $1750 as well.

    this one is 'high class' hawker centre like newton: many expats and foreigners go there. the longkang will be refurbished in the future as part of singapore river. and you underestimated the appeal of great world city mall.

    Pay 900k to 1 million for a 570sqf apartment with no facilities must be the craziest thing to do. Great world city and the eateries nearby are just like anywhere. Even the suburbs have better shopping malls (eg. Jurong Point, Causeway Point, Bishan Junction 8 and North Point). If you are talking about central, Zion Rd isn't all that near to orchard road.

    Default so?

    many condos have these facilities too, right? it still does not justify why one should pay $1 million for a 570sqft apartment

    I don't understand how people can pay so much for Zenith. Surely for the same price, Cosmopolitan is better bang for the buck? Nearer Orchard and nearer Great World? Nearer RQ and MS as well.

    Really don't understand sometimes. Some crazy sh** has been going on in the property market the last few years.

    Small flats, big sellers

    Demand for smaller space leads developers to downsize units to as tiny as 300-plus sq ft

    By Tan Dawn Wei


    Crowds flocked to a preview of condominium Domus on Friday. Its smallest units are 474 sq ft. -- ST PHOTO: JOSEPH NAIR FOR THE SUNDAY TIMES

    What do you call a space which can fit four hawker stalls?

    In the case of a new property development called Kembangan Suites, the space is called a one-bedroom apartment.

    It is all of 344 sq ft.

    But small is now big. On just the first day of a preview last week, the developer sold out 60 units of mostly one- and two-bedders ranging in size from 344 sq ft to 581 sq ft.

    The smallest units were going for about $300,000.

    Industry sources said demand is coming from local and foreign singles, young couples as well as cost-conscious buyers and investors.

    Before that, Alexis @ Alexandra sold all its 293 units, including 114 one-bedders (366 sq ft to 527 sq ft), with prices from $450,000.

    Other new launches like Mount Sophia Suites in Sophia Road, Nova 88 in Bhamo Road and Zenith in Zion Road are offering studio apartments or one-bedders from 366 sq ft to 484 sq ft.

    Crowds flocked to a preview on Friday of new condominium Domus in Irrawaddy Road. The smallest units there - one-bedders at 474 sq ft each - were going for more than $400,000.

    Its developer, Lakeview Investments, said those were the most popular and all units released in the first phase had been sold.

    'It's the size of a hotel room,' veteran designer Jay Ang said of the new 300-something sq ft homes.

    'You have space only to sleep and eat. There's definitely no place to entertain,' noted the specialist in space planning and storage space customising.

    But while there are no rules on how small apartments can go, designers and architects have to make concessions for standard dimensions, like how wide a door is, how long a bed is or how deep a wardrobe is.

    Developers have quickly cottoned on to this demand for small spaces. Several have rejigged or are considering tweaking their designs and making space for smaller units.

    Sing Holdings' project The Laurels in Cairnhill Road will go from its original 150 units of mostly three- and four-bedders to 290 units that include more one- and two-bedroom units.

    UOL Group may also resize the units of its Green Meadows project in Upper Thomson to attract more cost-conscious buyers.

    Alexis' developer, ECPrime, had done the same before the project's launch.

    City Developments said studio apartments in centrally located projects had always been popular because of the lure of city-living.

    Studio apartments comprised almost 40 per cent of the offerings at its downtown project, The Sail @ Marina Bay, which was completed last year.

    Carving up space for more units is one way a developer can achieve higher dollar per square foot value, said Mr Nicholas Mak, director of research and consultancy at Knight Frank.

    'Developers manage to sell such small units because they make it affordable in absolute terms,' he said.

    But, property pundits said, when apartments continue to shrink and prices per square feet remain high, home-seekers may go back to buying HDB flats and those looking to rent may decide to go for HDB rooms instead.

    The size of private one-bedroom units has halved from 10 years ago.

    HDB flats have downsized too, from about 1,130 sq ft for a four-room in 1987 to 970 sq ft now.

    Still, Singapore homes have not shrunk to the proportions of those in Hong Kong and Tokyo, where apartments can be as tiny as 140 sq ft.

    That is not to say that all buyers are happy with the slimming effect.

    Finance executive Audrey Yap, 35, who is shopping for a bachelorette pad, said: 'I can't afford the bigger apartments but the studio apartments are ridiculously small and claustrophobic. I think I may have to settle for a resale HDB flat.'

    Default Million dollar chicken coops

    what has happened to all these buyers of million-dollar chicken coops for Zenith. I would really love to hear them out on their reason for purchases.

    Well i am one of the pround owner of Zenith.

    Reasons:
    For the unique non-ordinary structure
    For being close to Great World City - old charm (tired of Novena)
    "Zenith" the name sounds cool and goes very well with Zion
    Close to CBD and short drive away to Orchard, anyway can't afford D9 and walking distance to Robertson Quay

    Yeah you are right. The floorplan is kinda small for 2-bedders and etc. Well, I bgt a 1 bedder and it is pretty ok compared to most 1 bedders across other projects. The only thing that I don't like about this project is the close proximity to Millpoint...

    Those few units sold during 1Q 09 were low floor units facing millpoint. in fact, they were sold for lower than 1250 psf. One of them was sold recently at ard 1550 psf. Those asking 2000 psf bought at the launch at a much higher price of 1800 to 1900 psf.

    If you have invested in projects like Clift, Sail etc during that window, your gain now is at least 500 psf up, so there is no need for you to repent.

    Low floor is ok cos facing car parks which have horizontal railings so bit unblocked. Higher floors facing directly into residences of millpoint do u get to see their 'lovely' view at night. Haha

    Agreed quality better than other Oxley n Macly. Luv the bathroom, dev not stingy about it.

    However the painting really need to redo. Common areas r dirty and painting peeling off. Omg

    Just hoping the Sunday heavy downpour didn't flood the basement carparks. Do u realize the carpark smells of curry???

    Hi Jonathan

    It looks pretty unique from exterior as a lot of outsiders commented. Within the compound, it actually has a lot of "contents".

    - There's a 27m lap pool but it is sheltered, so no sun at all
    - There's a sauna for a small project like this pretty neat huh
    - Children's pool and playgrd
    - Magnificent view of Tiong Bahru and river on 13/f Jacuzzi and consider a bigger scale for a small project

    Quality wise I personally feel Oxley needs improvement. Some claimed that the surface carpark should have better tiles rather than cement. Personally I think cement has a different charm and rustic feeling.

    Oh...low floor peeping tom. I think it is closer to the road and thus I do understand this. Especially so if your room is fully lighted up, it will be very "open" and literally can see from outside.
