    Heard the park in front is also zoned as a residential area.
    For waterfront city, likely not much high-rise.

    Not sure if Roxy will under price their units compared to UOL.
    If SW Residences all sold-out then unlikely. Facing for SW 18 seems better then UOL east/west facing.

    hard to say underprice anot....

    agts indicated 7xxk...probably 1bedder starts from 2kpsf to probably 2.5kpsf....psf 100-200psf more den next door but quantum 300k cheaper for 596sqft vs 387sqft

    the layout no gd and 387sqft really too small...was hoping they build 450-500sqft 1bedder with quantum around 8xxk

    If people are buying for investment purposes, a studio rent out by SW Residences (500 sqf) and SW 18 (387 sqf).
    Monthly there should be a difference of $500 bucks due to the loan quantum.
    Of course, excluding people buying at full cash.

    I think both projects are overpriced. I live near this area and it can be quite dodgy at night. It doesn't have a pleasant feel. For investment purpose there are completed condos selling at 1800-2000 psf near orchard or river valley that can yield 4%.

    Yeah, was there to take a look around.
    Esp the part of walking in from Outram Road, the rows of shop-houses, seems old. But for people who drives, it doesn't matter much or male tenants.

    People might just be buying into the area as it's due for renewal. Just outside CBD. Freehold and rising land prices.

    I visited the area a few days ago and here's my comments:

    From brochure: 1 bedder layout seems okay to me and the finishings are good. From observing at nearby 24th floor HDB block: Units facing the sea are *extremely* noisy due to the double stack traffic of AYE and Keppel road. You will see tonnes of container cranes at the wharf and heavy shipping activities in the sea. Totally no sea view for the next 15 years until the sea front area gets developed. The noise will be permanent though.

    I guess city view might be slightly better but the neighbouring condos are also very old and new ones might block your views. Walking to Somerset MRT will take you 20 min. Not much amenities except a coffee shop at the very old HDB block 10 min walk away...

    From the brochure, I can see the living room is 1.5 times of a queen size bed !! Which means you are viewing your tv placed at the foot of the bed while you are sitting at the bed head. And anything more than 14", you will be giddy. Anyone notice that? And also, the room can only fit a queen size bed which means it is like a capsule. No room for an addition table.

    I see the floor plan already feeling claustrophobic liaoz.

    Feels like that starwars movie where they were trapped in the rubbish dump with the walls closing up and squeezing them.
