    Default Centro

    Hi fellow forumers

    Drove past AMK MRT today and saw a plot of land for a new project ~ Centro!

    In a mature estate like AMK, just across AMK MRT along the same road as Grandeur8.

    Anyone care to enlighten on this project? saw that showroom are almost up. Did a search but there was nothing.

    sometime in 2007 they bought that piece of land at pretty high price and i remember their spokewoman said that they were confident they can sell the ready condo at above 1000 psf ...

    Hmm...1000 psf. Sounds like a heady figure for me. At today prices, it has to be between 800psf - 850psf.

    I hear that Far East is launching this project in a few weeks, prices start from $900 psf. Good for the area and surrounding Bishan and Upper Thomson as a whole.

    If I remember correctly Far East break even price around $950 psf, I guess they will launch at $1,100 psf.

    Anyway, this is a good location, maybe can sell at that price.

    It is a 0.6 Ha plot of land ~ 65,000 SqFt. To give you a better perspective, Clover at Bishan stands on 235,000+ SqFt of land. Kovan Residences stands on 190,000+ SqFt.

    CBD-type premium housing has finally arrived in the heartlands!

    I am curious about the appeal of such developments being very close to commercial/transport hubs. A close reference would be The Compassvale in Seng Kang - it is directly above Compasspoint/MRT station/Bus interchange. But prices are transacting at 450-500+ psf. Perhaps the relatively crowded and noisy environment + lack of privacy from the above-ground LRT station are deemed as disadvantages. We should see more of such projects coming - thought there is a plot above Bishan MRT too.

    But still, somehow I believe that this development will still draw buyers with very small units and good marketing. Any thoughts?

    Agreed, the draw will be there and in this supposedly "upbeat" sentiment environment, there will be many buyers with herd / speculative mentality.

    Saw some advertisements already - prices from $1000 psf and $8xx upwards per unit (smaller ones). I predict a good take-up rate notwithstanding the very high prices wrt Grandeur 8 for example

    A diversified living for younger upgraders and family centric people for exclusivity of product quality and lastly style.

    Yahh ... maybe a mirage on hot & dry days then perhaps can even see fantastic views from far far away

    Anyway, an agent told me (as part of his job to mkt ASky) that the selling point is if u can imagine hosting parties at the club hse ... marciam like those posh posh clubs ... fwah on top of the world! This one at 1k psf perhaps should consider this kinda concept

    Hi Cheerful,

    The concept of Centro is somehow derived from the concept of Icon in Tanjong Pagar. With open sky terraces at 33rd floor, you can actually held parties there, in the subhurbs.in the heart of AMK.

    If you are interested. Do let me know : Aaron | 90287921.

    To me, expensive or not based on HDB resale price. AMK 5-year old 118sqm HDB transacted at 600,000 which is about 500psf. They usually take the HDB resale price x 2 as the upper limit of condo price. At 1000psf, it will be more justified if close to MRT or freehold.

    if buying for own stay.. u decide the price..
    but if you intend to move house after 5 yrs, please take a look at surrounding condos like grandeur or even bishan condos.. or Yio Chu Kang condos or your SengKang condo right on top of mrt and shopping mall ..and see how they performed...

    A lot will like to buy new condos to stay near MRTs...
    but not a lot will buy a OLD Condo to stay near MRTs.. and worse.. depreciating asset.

    i think this project the size of each unit should be smaller than average, compact 3 bedrooms maybe even smaller than smaller than average. that accounts for the higher psf and yet still "affordable".
