yes the price for this had increased a lot. there is competition from THE BEACON which is nearby but i think ICON is better because very near Tanjong Pagar MRT. but a bit expensive to buy now :(

ICON is still a good buy. there will be no residential release from URA for the next two years. Good rental return. Estimated rental for a 900sf unit is 7K per month. - ben

Now that the economy is in deep recession, will the price of Icon drop?

I know there are still units for sale by the developer and they can't even sell a lot of their other projects.

Why don't they just lower the price and sell it off before it depreciates???

I don't mind buying one unit for investment. What is the rate now???

Don't you think $1200 psf is too much for a leasehold?

I can get Alexis, [email protected] at Queensway or even RVSuites at River Valley for less... I haven't even looked at Park Infinia, Montebleu and Centrio at Newton...

Another shining example of overpriced units not being sold by greedy developers. It was not sold that much when it was launched, right? Why is the developer so stubborn to demand such a crazy price and leave the unit to rot and depreciate?

IS FEO hoping to get money to finance Silversea??? Good luck selling that one in this market...

Just don't understand...

Are you serious?!

If i'm renting, I would prefer to rent The Sail and enjoy a nice view of the IR and the Marina Bay. Can you even see the Marina Bay from Icon???

Just walked by an ad on the street by a desperate owner wanting to sell or rent out The Sail for abt $4.5K per month. The two developments are so close and with One Shenton coming up, I can only think the rental will drop further with the competition.

Not to mention the leasehold is a ticking timebomb devaluating the property as time marches...

Might as well invest in Orchard, Novena or even Alexandra and get a bigger place.

I also tempted to buy Sail even though it's 99yrs..

Lol. Pls lah, even if icon has a nice lagonda or two more than the sail, at least the sail has an entire hinterland of entertainment, gardens, shopping, and others within a 500m radius. You cannot compare two. Icon is a glorified duxton - same leasehold, just different strata, and facilities

27-02-09, 19:38
Dont have to argue, go check out URA rental stats for the past 3 quarters.

Icon rent has came down, but still has the highest psf rental in the country. Thats a fact.

The Sail? You be lucky to get 4% yield.

AK47
27-02-09, 19:52
Yes, that true. Unfortunately its 2-3 years down the road.

At the mean time its a 500m radius of wasteland, rental will remain depress until MBFC, Bayfront MRT, Garden by the Bay are ready.

So watch out before paying any deposit....oops!

Saw a transaction done in Biz Times today for a unit at $634psf!
:jaw-dropping:

Is this possible? I also want to buy a unit at this price.

8kenshin
03-05-09, 00:40
I wonder if the URAa or anyone else investigates that transactions well below the last sales price are above board.

I am not questioning this transaction in particular, but have noticed a few developments where there has been very large drops (over $100-200psf) over the last transacted price, though the units never seem to have been advertised.

Like the poster above, I'd happily pay $634 psf (and more) for the Icon, but have not seen any advertised for sale at that price, nor at auction (I am on most mailing lists from auction houses).

In the past, a few agents I met as a potential buyer have have hinted that a side deal may be possible without any encouragement on my part. This can be overdeclaring the value (to get a higher loan) or undeclaring (to rip-off the CPF).

Hi newbie here, but can you advise how to rip off the CPF by under-declaring the price?

$100-200psf below the recent transaction is normal especially of previously the buyer are paying for such a premium. But this is not just over $100-200psf. It is at least $350psf or more.

Hi newbie here, but can you advise how to rip off the CPF by under-declaring the price?

Hi Cloudy78, its probably a jailable offence, so I am not "advising" anyone to do it, but by way of clarifying my post, the following process is what I was referring to.

Someone who bought a property and is negative equity has little incentive to sell. If he sells, he needs to come up with fresh cash to repay the loan, so often such owners will hang on hoping the market will recover. Understating the price lets him rip off the CPF as shown below.

Using round numbers: A guy buys a place for $800K, using a loan of $650K and CPF of $150K. he later wishes to sell and the property has a market value of 750K, and the loan is paid down to $600K. Ordinarily if he sells at market value, the bank gets repaid in fulll $600K, and CPF $150K. If he works with the buyer to declare a price of $700K, the bank loan is repaid in full for $600K, and there is a CPF shortfall of $50K. The scam is completed by the buyer passing $50K in cash to the seller. The buyer and seller have both completed an illegal act in this example.

home & garden

Gardens in the sky

High-rise greenery is sprouting in condos and HDB blocks

By tay suan chiang

High-rise havens at Newton Suites (left) and HDB carpark in Toa Payoh. -- ST PHOTOS: JOYCE FANG, SHAHRIYA YAHAYA

Garden terraces on high-rise buildings are a growing idea.

More condominiums, Housing Board carparks and office towers are sprouting plants and trees amid the concrete, helping Singapore bloom as a 'garden city'.

Everyone is happy: Developers like adding high-rise greens because they say they help keep buildings cool and beautify the urban jungle. Residents like them because they help them keep close to nature, despite being above the ground.

The idea gets the (green) thumbs-up from housewife Mei Wong, who lives in one of Singapore's oldest housing estates, Toa Payoh, which boasts the first sky garden to connect five HDB blocks. It has landscaped footpaths, sheltered seating areas and a trellis where creepers grow.

Ms Wong, 40, who goes there often with her two children, says: 'There's no need for me to grow plants at home. I just come here.

'The plants keep the sky garden cool, and it is pleasant to look out onto it from my 20th-storey window.'

The HDB and the National Parks Board first started a pilot project to green the roof of a multi-storey carpark in Punggol in 2003. At some multi-storey carparks in new HDB projects, there are also roof gardens which the public can access.

The idea is also taking root in the private sector (see separate stories). Last month, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) launched a new programme called Landscaping for Urban Spaces and High Rises - or appropriately, Lush in short - to promote more skyrise greenery.

Its initiatives include making landscaping, such as to shape rooftop gardens or sky terraces, a must for new developments in Raffles Place, Shenton Way, Marina Centre, along Kallang River and Jurong Gateway, the upcoming commercial hub in the west.

Already, since 1997, the URA has encouraged developers to incorporate sky terraces in residential projects by allowing a higher building height if they are provided. Covered sky terraces are also exempt from gross floor area computation, which means a developer has more room to build more apartment units.

Under Lush, these guidelines were revised to require that sky terraces are lushly landscaped and that the greenery is visible externally, to ensure a more attractive communal space.

New condos are showing they are taking the sky garden concept to new heights. At year-old Icon in Tanjong Pagar, residents are living a luxe lush life.

The sky terrace on the 31st storey of the mixed-use development makes for one superb venue for residents' private parties. It is filled with shade-loving plants such as frangipani trees, and small pockets of areas have been created to give some privacy.

Mr Chng Kiong Huat, director of development and planning for the condo's developer, Far East Organization, says the sky terrace was created so residents can 'live, work and play within the compound'.

Property developer Capitaland has also introduced high-rise greenery at two recent residential projects, Citylights near Lavender and RiverGate near River Valley Road. At Citylights, there is a sky terrace on the 24th storey with fitness facilities, plus reading and yoga corners, amid the lush greenery.

Over at RiverGate, its sky gardens are made up of a series of public and private gardens and balconies which give the development a green and ecologically harmonious appearance on Singapore's skyline, says Capitaland.

At Fusionopolis, the science and research centre in Buona Vista, there are 13 sky gardens which the public can visit.

Developer JTC Corporation says the sky gardens provide visual relief and serve as green lungs and social pockets.

Mr Eric Van Steen, 38, senior manager of Accenture, a consulting firm, goes to the gardens about twice a week.

'The greens, with the breeze and the great views, make it a pleasant space to step out of the office to clear the mind,' he says.

Newton Suites, developed by UOL Group, also has a 100m wall of vertical greenery on the 36-storey tower.

Architect Chan Ee Mun from award-winning firm Woha, which designed the Newton Road condo, says 'elevated gardens bring nature closer to the residents and afford the luxury of greenery that was previously reserved only for landed living'.

The greenery absorbs sunlight and carbon dioxide emissions and helps create oxygen. Mr Chan adds that by planting vertically, 'we are also populating our dense urban centres with gardens and greenery that encourage a thriving biodiversity'.

Newton Suites resident, financial consultant Mona Honegger, 43, lives on the ninth storey but regularly goes up to the lush sky terrace on the 31st storey to revel in the unblocked views of the city.

The Swiss expat, who enjoys a drink and relaxes there before bedtime, says: 'Being here among the green gives me a feeling of being close to nature.'

Seven Palms smashes price records at Sentosa Cove
SC Global sells units at $3,100-$3,400 psf at the exclusive 4-storey project
The Business Times
Wednesday, 7 October 2009

Upmarket developer SC Global Developments is said to have sold 6 units at its Seven Palms at Sentosa Cove condo at between $3,100 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 2 of the 6 units sold recently, with Singapore permanent residents buying the other 4.

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 sqft to 6,500 sqft.

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.

Tower 1 and those with pool/sea view will be blocked. But not for Tower 2 faving the city. The owner is cleverly playing the fact that Tower 2 will have open view from a high floor and asking for 1600 psf for a studio loft. It's currently tenanted at 4500/mth. Not a bad rental yield even after monthly maintenance. I think its location is not bad being so near to MRT and right in the city. It suits expats with Manhattan living style. Icon is mainly for investment purpose, not for living. That's my 2 cents worth

Tanjong Pagar set to be next waterfront city
Jessica Cheam
The Straits Times
Tuesday, 2 February 2010

http://www.straitstimes.com/STI/STIMEDIA/image/20100202/a8-2.jpg

Even as Singapore's iconic Marina Bay nears completion, its next waterfront city has been identified: Tanjong Pagar.

Right now, it is home to cranes and rows of stacked containers waiting to be loaded onto ships calling at one of the world's busiest ports.

But come 2027, when port operator PSA Corporation's lease on the land expires, the prime waterfront space should become home to skyscrapers of another sort.

The Economic Strategies Committee (ESC) yesterday called for Tanjong Pagar to be transformed into a waterfront city catering for the expansion of Singapore's business district and boasting apartments, hotels, and lifestyle and tourism facilities.

'This area is very attractive, it is just at the fringe of the city, the size is comparable to another Marina Bay and it can offer immense opportunities to support future growth,' said Senior Minister of State for National Development Grace Fu yesterday.

Because of its proximity to the Central Business District, Sentosa and universities, Tanjong Pagar 'will give us lots of elements to work on and we're quite excited about the potential', she added.

However, details are not ready at the moment as the Government is not looking at developing it any time soon.

Ms Fu, who co-chaired the ESC sub-committee on higher land productivity for future growth, said this is all part of the committee's push to make the most productive use of Singapore's land.

This is especially since Singapore's competitiveness will in future rest on being 'a global city and a meeting point in Asia for enterprise, talent, cultures and ideas'.

The idea is make each piece of land work harder and examine how land use should be reconfigured to support the new economic strategies for the country.

For example, more incentives and grants could be given to encourage the private sector to pilot innovative plant layouts for key manufacturing sectors to minimise the use of land, she said.

'We will also have to progressively step up the rejuvenation of mature industrial estates and at the more macro level... recycle land to support new economic activities,' she added.

Another look may also be taken at industrial spaces which one cannot imagine could be used for other purposes.

Lorong Halus, for example, used to be just a dumping ground for rubbish, but is now home to wildlife.

'So we would try not to imagine Tuas as it is now, but rather a place where we could find a congregation of not just economic (or) industrial activities but hopefully residential and recreational as well - a much more pleasant place and a place for the birds as well!' Ms Fu quipped.

'We are limited in terms of land but I think we are not limited in terms of imagination and creativity.'

Commenting on the plans for Tanjong Pagar, Mr Steven Choo, chief executive of the Real Estate Developers' Association of Singapore, said they will add a new dimension to land-scarce Singapore.

However, he also noted that this is a long-term vision which will not have much impact on the current market over the next few years.

'But eventually I'm sure it will open up more options, more quality living, offices, accommodation, and more variety to our urban landscape,' he said.

Singapore Institute of Architects president Ashvinkumar Kantilal said the plans were 'very pragmatic, typical of the Singapore approach'.

The location already boasts Sentosa, residential estates, and a shopping and office hub, and will present a great planning opportunity 'when the time comes', he added.

But its site area is much bigger than Altez and Skysuites in front.
So this will compensate a bit. It still looks very good and majestic from the outside.

Those are nicely taken photos.

However, still fail to see the hooha over view of the city skyline. It's chapalang and themeless. Its at best jarring to the eyes. Maybe thats why it reflects SG rojak culture.

I rather go for sea/reservoir view or golf course/greenery view anyday.
