I am not a contractor either.

    My point is that a new kitchen does not get you the tenants who would go for new development and new units. Own stay is entirely different.

    so its the mentality of sporeans ... new is good ...

    so old project will never have any value?

    so sad

    some of us have to think differently ..

    Oh yes, the land value will appreciate and may double or triple in the next 2 decades. The space over the land just depreciates after TOP.
    So much wastage and how can SG be "green" Look @ Anderson 18

    I don't know why we design and build buildings using cheap labour or cheap material to only last 10 years and then take it down. They build them superfast after project sold. Look at the Arte and Sky11. Is it really nice to look at as you drive past?

    This baywindow GFA is going to cost a lot of greenhouse gases!

    Overseas where I've bought/sold real estates the building lasts decades and appreciates in value. People just renovate and they do it themselves brick by brick every weekend. Go for enbloc....you crazy

    We are comparing [email protected], PI, and NS which are all projects more than 1 year old. Which one is the new one you are referring to?
    We have not even talked about the new ones yet. Lincoln Suites at about $2k psf?

In fact, Newton Suites, being much closer to Novena MRT station, is transacted at higher prices than [email protected] which is closer to Newton MRT station).


    so what does that tell us ??

    people are paying high prices without realising ? or people are only willing to pay higher for newer development ?

    or people are being 'cheated' by developers ?

    why are all the newer projects costing mroe ? has construction cost gone up ?

    or are buyers stupid ?

    Ah yes. Love Sweden, which part of Stockholm?

    Saw the "tradesman" repairing a stone wall. Just one person with precision cutting tools and machinery. These are professionals not truckloads of unskilled workers.

    Would have taken the whole day to replace 1meter square slab of stone wall.

    Pls check the data below The facts don't lie. There is not a single flipper for this PI project since jan 2009.

    Accept the facts man..that PI $psf has caught up to [email protected] $psf and not hope against the trend. I don't own either of the properties.

    No offense to your friend but you are aware of the reputation of pacific mansion? Getting the desired tenant mix is difficult. That's why it's priced at a discount to other similar, neighbouring condos. The best way to extract value from pacific mansion is through enbloc, which was what it tried to do at the peak of the market in 2007 but failed to achieve due to its ridiculous high asking price.

    absolutely agree with you. It's not only the inside that tenants look at but also the type of tenants, the neighbourhood, the facilities and even the quality of the security guards and mgmt who can police the do's and dont's

    are you an agent? i've been looking for one at [email protected]

    the data facts may not accurately reflect the prices of PI. I see as overpriced given the higher no of units in PI, interior materials used. I viewed both projects. It's either PI is overly priced or [email protected] is underpriced.
