    Default [email protected] Yam

    A small development along River Valley, at the junction of Killiney and Kim Yam. 33 studio apartments. Asking for $12xx psf. TOP in June 2011. Any advise on whether if it is a good investment?

    Killiney Rd does not meet Kim Yam Rd at all so what junction are you talking about?

    Do you mean River Valley Rd and Kim Yam Rd instead.

    To be honest, Kim Yam Rd is not comfortable at all, with narrow rd and temple. Really overcrowded with small and big condos literally squeezed side by side. No sense of space at all. Feel like living in HK. This claustrophobic feeling is compounded by small units, few units, few facilities, tiny land area.

    If they dare to launch at 1800psf i'll tell them to fly kite.

    Although I live in River Valley and I love the area, I would not recommend anyone to buy a lousy smallish place here just for the sake of it being River Valley. There are other older, better located condos in Rv that you could consider for a lower psf price which translates into similar quantum price as a new build, for more space. I am not talking about Pacific Mansion, there are other newer and better maintained ones that are now going for a bargain now.

    Else, consider Newton area. The buildings there more spaced out, more modern and the area is newer and not so dingy.

    agree
    during festive seasons and weekends..the temple is so crowded and traffic is bad ...

    i still cannot understand why people still paying 1200-1700 psf for tiny units in RV area ..

    do consider Valley Park ..maybe old but the blocks are so so far apart .. literally can build another block in between ..

    just want to clarify that by newton area, I certainly did not mean lincoln rd area. that area is just as congested, although it's newer than kim yam and more residential in nature.

    I meant that the [email protected] side is very pleasant and more spaced out and I feel its a good area, much better than kim yam.

    was quoted about $900psf for one of the boutique penthouses in that area, dun know if it's still available. that stretch (evelyn/buckley) is really quite serene and exclusive area.

    Sneaked inside recently and omg units all so claustrophobic and ceiling super low maybe evenlower than hdb...

    It looks like it will TOP in few months time. Owners better faster get rid of their units before buyers can go inside and view and get a shock.

    Really 2.4m ceiling? You didn't make mistake?
    The older condos usually 3m ceiling. Newer ones heard mostly about 2.8m high ceiling only?

    Maybe 2.8m ceiling before false ceiling, but from picture, really look low like the 2.4m that u say to ceiling board....

    So far most condo I know also have 2.8m..., somehow lower ceiling tend to make size even look smaller...

    I dun think 2.4m lah too incredible to believe leh. Maybe 2.6m. The window certainly looks tall.

    The 'walk in' go timing one. If too early no access at all or maybe dangerous. If too late all the units door locked liao go in also cant see finishing workmanship etc. And time or day matters too... If the cheena or bangla hard at work will get stopped... If tea break or rest or wat then they may not pay so much attn....
