    Upcoming Yishun condo named
    H88
    Thursday, 5 November 2009, 17:26



    Finally we have a name for this condo! Do you know how tiring it is to always say 'The new Yishun condo facing the reservoir' ? Now we can say The Estuary, the Yishun condo facing the reservoir'.

    Yes, MCL Land has finally named it. News is that it's coming up in the first quarter next year. Price yet unknown, but they paid record prices for it back in March 2008.

    At $350 psf ppr for the 99-year leasehold plot of land, it set the benchmark for Yishun prices back then. We hear analysts rate the selling price to be around the $840 psf range.

    The closest MRT is Khatib MRT (around 946m away or 10 to 15 min walk). It faces the beautiful, serene Lower Seletar Reservoir. However, it's right next to an MRT track and Yishun Avenue 2 is notoriously jammed during rush hour.

    Wow... 840psf ??? Which translate into near to a million for a 3 bedroom.
    Price near to Clover at the park in Bishan...
    haha maybe by then Yishun's 5bedroom hdb can sell for 600k liao

    I did live in Yishun for more than 15 years and do not think that Ave 2 is jammed even at rush hour. It could be quite heavy but definitely not jammed.

    If people have money and think it is worthwhile to buy, then okie lor..but no need call people names mah. Looks like you are frustrated with the high prices of properties. If one think Yishun is not worth it, then wait for it to drop to 500psf then buy lor. But the wait will be long I guess.

    Better think twice before buying this condo. Would like to remind all the following again.
    - Noise from Major Junction
    - Noise from Yishun Ave 1
    - Noise from Yishun Ave 2
    - Noise from MRT track
    - Noise from stadium
    - Noise from helicopter

    i think the profile of a buyer there would be someone who loves sports and a good view and has lived in yishun for the last 10 years or more. and one who prefers new apts over used resale and is willing to pay 25% premium.

    The exit for The Estuary (the name of this new condo) will be along Yishun Ave 2 where you just need to make one u-turn and you are on your way ditrectly to SLE with no unmanned traffic light along the way. This means it bypasses the areas that are usually jammed from Khatib MRT heading towards town.

    In terms of convenience of location (near MRT/shops and quick exit to CTE) it is definitely better than Meadows@Pierce which is in no mans land.

    Yes as expected it will only attract people who are used to staying in the northern part of Singapore - Ang Mo Kio, Yishun, Sembawang and Woodlands. Likewise very few people staying in these areas would buy condos say in Simei.The premium should be at least 35-40% over oplder condos in that location.

    I am staying in that area and should know better than some self-proclaimed experts. I have been reading about morons claiming that helicopters noise is often heard in this area. Hello, this is not next to Sembawang airbase. If one can hear regular helicopter noise in this area then this should apply to rest of Singapore. This is not the traditional path for helicopters leaving Sembawang airbase. What can be heard is occasional (once in 3-4 days ) noise of the bigger planes heading to Seletar Airport. Majority of planes do not take this route.

    Stadium noise – how often are big games played and even if played have you guys seen the pathetic crowds. You are likely to hear your neighbour quarelling more often than noise from the stadium.

    MRT noise maybe for the nearest one or two blocks. The towers will be facing the reservoir away from the MRT tracks.

    Noise from Yishun Ave 2 – yes quite a bit. But not so much from junctions where half the traffic at this junction is at standstill at any one time. With a camera at the traffic junction and anther just after Khatib MRT where drivers cannot go faster than 60km/h, the cars here are not moving fast.

    So don’t criticise blindly just because you are not buying.

    the profiles of buyers for The Estuary will be different from those for Meadows. those who buy Meadows are looking for other factors, and generally do not mind that it's not near conveniences like MRT & shops. likewise those who buy The Estuary will look for such conveniences & will not look at the Meadows.
