    the 1700+ at 1.7+ mil must be snatched up during vvvvip previews.
    By my estimate, > 60+ % sold already.

    True. But most people cannot get those... Prob staff buys.
    Anyway, more important is what is the price going to be at your exit more than 4 years later and not in-between.

    Quite simple, after the VVIP:
    - New MRT line announce
    - QE3

    == Prices chiong again

    i once heard when sales reach 60+% the developer is more confident and will not negotiate much. any truth in this?

    and yes, qe3 is a booster but against gloomy economy backdrop, maybe they balance each other out.

    and the new mrt is just beside it, but rightly mentioned it will be operational only in 2019. but with existing mrts around, i think still ok.

    anyone check out the showflat? how is the quality?

    general rule of thumb but it really depends on the state of economy at that point of time and which developer you are dealing with.

    they price it low as u will notice these are all low floor units without much in terms of view as they are blocked by buildings on opposite side of road or the office tower block.

    Actually in this development, against usual norm, they started by releasing the middle to high floors first. The lowest levels 9 to 12 have not been released yet.
    I feel quality of fittings is just standard, maybe like sky habitat thereabouts. Take note of big squared pillared walls in the plan along with bay windows and balconies. The bay windows are interestingly of different heights in the studio under which the external air compressor sits on the outside.

    notice also some units have thicker than usual walls?
    i like the 3 bedder but the master bedroom wall has this thick section suddenly jutting out which means cannot place the bed at that side.

    interesting thanks for pointing out those walls and pillars.

    i looked at the street map, potential buildings blocking are dbs towers, sgx towers and sia towers. then there is the tall capital tower. the other facing still empty but i am sure there will be buildings there in future.

    hmm.... looks like only the high floors will have good views... then again not sure if they are taller than those tall buildings around.

    was in vicinity sat pm, of released units, >90% sold; of total dev, >> 50% sold.
    lots of recent indonesian purchases, with 10% absd! no price reduction. hearsay that actual shenton mrt, part of tsl, is just below 1 side of building; but that's 10 years away? downtown mrt may be next year. singapore conference hall may be left alone. rechecked the fittings - studio toilet is good; 3br is very nice with big marble pieces, 2.9mil up!!! you seem interested, better come see for yourself for reference first.

    hi lifeline, i quite like the place... the accessibility and the surrounding development should add value to the place. saw the panaromic view preso and it seems above 40+ floors will have good city view. i am still skeptical about the seaview. i think very likely the view will be blocked once the govt sells the land behind it. There is a stack looking over the conference hall direction. that view should be good and could be better once the port relocates. are you also considering v shenton?

    and the very high floors not released yet. seems like you need to throw in a cheque to trigger the release and then subject to developer to release.

    Got 2 other options. You can wait for the new tanjong pagar MRT development or consider the 2rms Skysuites@ anson

    another option: buy altez subsale

    using studio as guide :
    altez ~1950 to 2067psf asking
    skysuites ~2500+psf <400sf
    clift ~2200+psf
    glucoland ~?

    big piece of researched info here. work out the implications yourself...
    those who are still investing will know what to do
    can treat me kopi when this info proves useful.

    p/s not inducement to buy; just sharing only
