    Not a bad development...several down sides though...traffic during rush hour is crazy..hard to get moving..

    also erm...sometimes u get ladies (or ladyboys) walking along at night....

    Proximity wise, its damn close to town, which is good...

    Went down to iR with wife. Good pricing at 900psf (Was told by this guy agent that can even write cheque to try for 850psf).

    Anyway, let me share a bit of my personal view...

    Good points:
    -Very big balcony! For those who enjoy chatting with family and friends on open area to enjoy the ambience and view, this is a big plus.
    -The common bedrooms quite spacious and can fit in two single beds/Queen size bed and yet still ample room to move around
    - The Masterbathroom is really huge and grand...majiam like Shangril-La!
    - Even the common bathroom is damn impressive with Marble finishing! Luxurious feel like those grand hotels.
    - Location wise near good eateries as it is near to Balestier road end.
    - Very near to City and Orchard area. With very close PIE and CTE access.
    - Near to Tan Tock Seng Hospital so if got accident or emergency can just rush to A&E within 5 minutes...haha (anyway, this is a pro and con...if say SARS similar case happen, the fear generated will disrupt the ambience and feel of the area.)
    - 8 to 10mins walk to Novena MRT! Damn good! Even got shelter walkway halfway from the project to Novena. Better location than Nova48 and Nova88 definitely.
    - Very close proximity to Square 2! My wife loves it!



    Bad Points:
    - While it is indeed within walking distance to MRT, walking past Tan Tock Seng hospital Mortuary gives me the creep....especially at night.
    - 70 units and 70 parking lots. Parking wise is a real headache (1 lot per apartment in project). Relatives or friends will have to find time to park their cars outside this private property. Agent told us not an issue as not all unit holders will have cars thus will have adequate carpark lots for visitors. But if one can afford $800K to $1.3Mil, how come these people can't afford buy car? As a matter of fact, many will have more than 1 car. So agent must be joking with me.
    - While walking down Irrawaddy Rd to time distance to MRT, was stared at by Police officer on gate duty at Phoneix Park, Ministry of Home Affairs, as if I am a terrorist suspect.
    - The orientation of this project sucks. The East and West direction are where the Bay windows and balcony facing. It will be very hot in the day!
    - If want to drive to Novena Square or Square 2 to pick wife up, can not travel backwards on Irrawaddy as it is one way from point of iR residences.
    - Will need to travel to Balestier road and from there turn one big round back to the shopping mall and then back home @ iR (please pardon me if wrong and there's another secret shortcut somewhere)
    - There are too many planters in this project! Planters at Balcony, planters at Master bath, planters at common bath....so despite the 1300plus sqft for 3 bedrooms, the overall feel actually smaller as compared to say Nova48 and Nova88.
    - Despite the stupid planters everywhere, developer still want to charge high psf and refuses to waive stamp duties which is different from Roxy Homes package offered for Nova 48 and Nova 88.

    never notice the mortue... interesting...

    of the police, you can treat it as safety as in not many ppl can go thru there...

    850psf is attractive as I went there almost 2 mths back, the agent said 880psf for 2nd top floor was rejected....

    hope will go down further

    My friend was paid $4.3m by the developer for his corner terrace and he is laughing all the way to the bank. Now it is the developer's turn to recoup his investment
