    Smile Orchard Scotts: Masterpieces of Modernist Architecture



    Official website: http://www.orchardscotts.com.sg/

    " Respect the masterpiece. It is true reverence to man. There is no quality so great, none so much needed now."

    Frank Lloyd Wright (1867 - 1959). Father of Modern Architecture.

    Masterpieces of Modernist Architecture
    Orchard Scotts is a study in modernism by none other than the most cutting edge architectural firm in America: the highly acclaimed award winning Arquitectonica of Miami, Florida. The designer of such archtectural gems as The Alantis, Beverly Hills Residences and The Westin New York at Times Square, Arquitectonica is recognised worldwide for its excellence and innovative design.

    DESIGNER LIFESTYLE
    Bounded by Anthony Road, Peck Hay Road and Clemenceau Avenue North, Orchard Scotts stands at the doorstep of the Newton MRT station. With the world-class shopping and entertainment attractions of Orchard Road just a stone's throw away, you can walk to your favourite designer stores at Paragon and Ngee Ann City. Or wine, dine and dance the night away just minutes from your home. In addition, the exclusive American and Tanglin Clubs, five star hotels such as the Grand Hyatt, the Sheraton Towers, the Goodwood Park, Marriott Hotel and some of the Singapore's top schools are within walking distance. the ever popular Newton Circus Food Centre is also a mere 5 minute stroll away.



    A world class shopping street
    As Singapore's most famous landmark, Orchard road is a fitting symbol of this vibrant city. Stretching 2 kilometres, this premier shopping street is now undergoing a makeover to be a great, hip and happening street on par with the best shopping districts of the world. The Government has released prime land sites to encourage landmark developments that will expand the diverse range of shopping outlets, revitalise the street and enhance the skyline. There will also be more kioskks and alfresco outlets underground pedestrian links, overhead walkaways, as well as eye catching and dynamic pop-out building facades all along both Orchard and Scotts Roads. These initatives will surely boost your investment in Orchard Scotts.



    Fine Art.Fine Living Enriched by Greenery
    Set against a lush verdant backdrop of soothing water features, mist jets and zen koi ponds, Orchard Scotts is awash with faciliities only a luxury hotel can boast of. All in all, there are four swimming pools, two tennis courts, one recreational basketball court, steam, sauna and furo bath facilities and one of Singapore's largest residential gyms. What's more, with a site coverage of only 25%, all residents also get to enjoy 260,000 square feet of sprawling grounds. Small wonder, our garden won the Landscape Industry Association of Singapore (LIAS) Gold Award in 2006.



    Exclusive Lifestyle Privileges
    To complete your designer lifestyle, Orchard Scotts offers four types of lifestyle privileges for your exclusive patronage. Residents can engage a chef to cook in the hotel-style kitchen for private parties at The Chef's Table, use the wine cellar at The Chateau to store their wine vintage collection, indulge their senses in The Urban Retreat's spa facilities, or share special moments with their loved ones at the 6,000 sq. ft Family Oasis.

    yeah, as someone predicted, any uptick in market sentiments will bring on a deluge of new launches into the market, and apply downward pressure on property prices.

    There is no potential for price appreciation in the short to intermediate term as a result of the latent supply.

    Like all masterpieces, must wait till the artist dies already then can sell. In this case, the developer.

    中国买楼大军快杀到?
    中国人组织购房团到海外买楼顺便观光,已经不是什么新闻,不过,至今却未听闻来到新加坡。与其将项目带到海外促销,或许发展商们这次可以考虑,将买家带到新加坡来?圣淘沙的名胜世界(Resort World Sentosa)开幕在即,相信要吸引一些富豪前来,应该不会找不到一个好借口
    吳慧敏
    早报星期天
    星期天, 15-11-2009


    远东机构的豪华共管公寓 -- 乌节史格园(Orchard Scotts),有高达25%的外国买家来自中国

    最近,发展商又开始将手头上一些共管公寓项目,特别是属于中高档次的项目悄悄地带到海外促销。不同的是,除了印尼、香港、马来西亚这几个常拜的码头,听说一些人现在也开始往上海

    虽然不少本地人的想法还停留在中国人只会在新加坡购买低价房子的框框,不过一些发展商已经意识到,风势正在改变

    中国人百万千万豪宅

    过去三年来,中国人在外国买家的排名节节上升,由2007年的第五名,攀升至2008年的第四名。根据今年首9个月的成交量,中国人已经超过英国人和印度人,成为新加坡私宅的第三大外国买家。

    两个月前,本报也曾经报道,本地每卖出100间私人房子,约22间由外国人或永久居民买下,其中六间的买家是马来西亚人、五间是印尼人、三间是中国人,购买力不容忽视

    目前,中国人购买的房子虽然大多(25%)属于售价50万元至100万元的大众化档次,不过,买得起500万元以(more than $5 million)上豪宅的中国人,也大有人在

    例如远东机构的乌节史格园(Orchard Scotts),就有高达25%外国买家来自中国。这个靠近纽顿地铁站的豪华共管公寓,单位价格动辄四五百万元($4-5 million)。

    一家房地产代理公司的研究部主管也透露,最近几个星期,升涛湾(Sentosa Cove)的千万元豪宅区也出现了不少中国的超级大富豪前来看楼。

    中国的崛起让富豪的人数暴增,根据最近发表的胡润百富榜,今年中国的百亿人民币富豪人数,已由去年的50名上升至65名;至于财富在10亿人民币以上的富豪则有1000名之多。香港只有22名,但上海有90名、北京有87名、深圳65名、杭州60名、广州38名、温州25名、成都23名。

    从这些数据看,已经到新加坡买楼的中国人,至今应该只是占了中国富豪人数中的九牛一毛。中国炒房团虽然已经在中国多个城市,包括香港兴起滔天巨浪,但是至今仍没有太强的证据显示,他们已经大举进军新加坡。

    一名发展商曾经预测,中国人迟早会超越马来西亚人和印尼人,成为新加坡最大的外国买楼族群。姑且不论这个预言会否成真,但是这股购买势力已是不容忽视。

    为中国买家全方位服务

    不过,到目前为止,新加坡发展商在争取中国买家方面所取得的成绩,似乎参差不齐。

    不少人仍质疑这股买楼势力;有些虽然已经意识到这股新势力,却不知道如何下手;不过也有些在耕耘几年后,开始看到了一些成绩。

    以远东机构来说,它在6年前于上海设立办事处,现在,中国新移民和其他海外买家已在两年前超越印尼人,成为远东机构公寓项目的最大外籍买家。

    值得参考的是,这个办事处并不只是在中国摆摆模型、发发宣传册子而已,而是主动安排一些中国商人到新加坡来实地考察

    远东机构不但安排专车从机场接送这些贵客到该机构的酒店住宿,以及到机构属下的餐厅用,贵客在参观房子后,如果有兴趣的话,甚至会安排他们与本地银行学校和政府机构代表会面,协助他们了解在新加坡定居、经商及孩子教育的问题

    一名房屋经纪也告诉记者,他因为提供许多附加服务,而成功争取到了一些中国大客户当中好几个授权他500万元至1000万元不等($5-10 million)的预算,代他们在新加坡买房子

    这些中国客户通常是客户的亲戚、商业伙伴,有的打算在新加坡做生意,有的则因为孩子在新加坡念书,所以想在新加坡投资房地产。因此,除了带他们看房子外,他还帮他们的孩子介绍监护人、律师、银行家。每次中国客户来新,他还代为在六星级酒店订房、租车,甚至带他们到名牌店购物、去东海岸吃辣椒螃蟹等等。

    名胜世界明年开幕
    或能吸引富豪来买房

    中国人组织购房团到海外买楼顺便观光,已经不是什么新闻,不过,至今却未听闻来到新加坡。与其将项目带到海外促销,或许发展商们这次可以考虑将买家带到新加坡?

    圣淘沙的名胜世界(Resort World Sentosa)开幕在即,相信要吸引一些富豪前来,应该不会找不到一个好借口

    Wow!
    Is there some buying activities lately we weren't aware?

    The latest transaction shows a 2nd-floor no-view unit selling at $1,886 psf.
    This latest transaction will put all the higher-floor units to shame.

    2 transaction don't make a trend, that means you agree that rivergate's trend based on 6 transactions is plummeting?
