    Seven Palms smashes price records at Sentosa Cove

    SC Global sells units at $3,100-$3,400 psf at the exclusive 4-storey project

    By KALPANA RASHIWALA


    (SINGAPORE) Upmarket developer SC Global Developments is said to have sold six units at its Seven Palms at Sentosa Cove condo at between $3,100 per square foot (psf) and $3,400 psf - record prices for the upscale waterfront housing district.

    On a lump-sum basis, the three and four-bedroom units were sold at about $9 million to $15 million each.

    All units in the four-storey development will face either Tanjong Beach next door, or the sea or the Tanjong Golf Course at the Sentosa Golf Club.

    Singaporeans are understood to have picked up two of the six units sold recently, with Singapore permanent residents buying the other four.

    Market watchers reckon SC Global is probably looking at a project-average price of about $3,500 psf for Seven Palms at Sentosa Cove. The condo will comprise just 41 units.

    Standard apartment sizes range from about 2,750 sq ft to 6,500 sq ft.

    BT understands that the biggest unit in the 99-year-leasehold project, an 8,000-sq-ft penthouse, has a price tag of about $25 million to $30 million.

    Prior to this, the highest median price achieved by a developer of a Sentosa Cove condo was $2,734 psf seen at Lippo Group's Marina Collection, which was released in late 2007.

    The highest price fetched for a unit in that development was $2,917 psf, for a fourth-floor unit that sold for just over $9.8 million in December 2007.

    Property consultants were generally not surprised at the record price achieved for Seven Palms, given the project's unique positioning.

    'This will be the only condo on Sentosa Cove with direct access to a beach. And SC Global has established a track record of being able to command a premium to the market for its project,' said CB Richard Ellis executive director (residential) Joseph Tan.

    'We're seeing big-ticket transactions coming back to the market. For example, there are more of the $4.5 million to $12 million per apartment deals again as the bottom-up property recovery spreads to the luxury residential sector,' he added.

    Seven Palms is designed by Kerry Hill Architects, which has designed many of the Aman resorts.

    SC Global clinched the 113,797-sq-ft plot, which was marketed as the Beachfront Collection, at a tender conducted by Sentosa Cove Pte Ltd (SCPL) and which closed in July 2007.

    Its top bid of $268.3 million worked out to nearly $1,800 psf per plot ratio. Assuming a breakeven cost of about $2,400 psf, SC Global's pre-tax profit from the development would be more than $170 million.

    The plot has a 1.31 plot ratio (ratio of maximum potential gross floor area to land area) and a four-storey height limit. The maximum number of apartments allowed by SCPL - the district's master planner - is 88 units.

    However, SC Global has opted to build less than half that number, but with bigger units.

    All penthouses and ground-floor apartments come with their own swimming pool and each unit in the project has a private lift. Housing in the immediate neighbourhood is bungalows.

    SEVEN PALMS SENTOSA COVE

    10 units released, 6 sold

    Asking average price is about $3,300 psf or about $8.5m per unit


    (SINGAPORE) SC Global Developments yesterday said it is releasing about 10 of the total 41 units at its Seven Palms Sentosa Cove condo at an average price of about $3,300 psf. In absolute quantum, prices start at about $8.5 million per unit.


    Imagine: Tanjong Beach on one side, a golf course adjacent to it and the South China Sea on the other side

    The upscale developer recently held private previews for the first phase and has sold six of the 10 units at an average lumpsum price of about $11 million per residence. Prices of the six units sold range from about $3,100 psf to $3,400 psf.

    Standard apartments in Seven Palms range from about 2,700 sq ft to 6,800 sq ft and have three to five bedrooms. Penthouses range from about 4,000 to 8,000 sq ft. The residences are housed in three four-storey high blocks formed around a square coconut grove. 'A huge open-ended portal connects the coconut grove to the beach for physical and visual access. Under this portal is a luxuriously-appointed beach club, complete with storage for water sports equipment, a glass-walled gymnasium, and plenty of deck areas for lounging, yoga, catered events, or just doing nothing,' SC Global said in its news release.

    It will be developing the project on a 99-year leasehold plot flanked by Tanjong Beach on one side, a golf course adjacent to this and the South China Sea on the other side.

    'To step out of your residence and walk directly onto the beach is truly unique in urban Singapore. I have spent much time on site over the past year appreciating this unique and rare location and working diligently to create something befitting of this special site,' said SC Global chairman and CEO Simon Cheong.

    The company also said the name Seven Palms derives from its estate management arm, Seven Palms Resort Management, which has been providing resident services to all the group's completed developments since 2002.

    same reason why some buy BMW 530i while others buy Camry 2.0. does the 2 extra cylinders and displacement matter in singapore? does 4 seconds quicker acceleration matter?

    as usual, you have chosen to miss the point.

    Though both are midsize, Camry and 5-series are very different cars.


    How about using fullsize S-class as an example?

    One can buy a S300L V6 but instead choose a S65L AMG V12 that costs "more than double" the former.

    One can't get more metal, length, legroom and volume with the extra money.

    On paper, the 4.4s S65L AMG will outrun the standard pathetic EvoX. But who in the right mind would race in a 5.2m-long 2.5-tonne sedan as it takes twice as much skill to race in it than the EvoX.

    On the road, the car is more likely driven by the chauffeur during weekdays and the owner during the weekends. (For reference, ask the lucky chauffeur in Daimler AsiaPac HQ). Regardless of the driver, the S65L AMG will be driven as slow as the S300L on the road. It may even be slower if the businessman/executive in the S300L is rushing to close a deal.


    So why pay more than double the money for a 612hp car when all the owner needs is a 216hp S260 (not even 231hp S300)?

    I hope the day will come for me to understand the logic. ... but then ... I think this day is unlikely to come. Meanwhile, I will just continue to stress my 6 pistons to play catch up.

    The difference is not inside the car, but outside the car.

    Look at these two photos below. Can you spot the difference? Don't you agree that the Singapore Flyer in the first photo looks much more beautiful?

    Or if the Reporter in the S300L is rushing to report on the latest condominium news.
