    Guccoland price gap is damn kua zhang one.. i experience many many times b4 liao. if you observe their launch price for Leedon Resi, Sophia Resi, Elliot @ East Coast. The psf price gap between largest[PH units/large units/units w/ big patios etc..] and smallest damn consistent one almost 900-1k psf. Recession also like that, bull market also like that wdf.. So if you compare smallest vs a mid size, probably the difference will be 300-400psf. If compare their smallest and largest [or large unit] can be up to 6xx to more than 800+psf gap. If Eden resi selling at 3k psf at cityhall, using Guccoland sales tactic, a beri low 2k psf is highly possible provided u dare hoot large + they got land at 1k psf. Also, they have office, hotels and commercial units so they have more free play in terms of psf pricing for their residential units. dream a dreamm...

    Billionaire inventor James Dyson bags Singapore's Wallich Residence super penthouse

    Grace Leong
    Business Correspondent


    SINGAPORE - Billionaire inventor Sir James Dyson has quietly acquired the biggest, highest, and possibly the most expensive super penthouse on the Singapore market at the ultra-luxe Wallich Residence.

    The price tag is not revealed in documents obtained by The Straits Times, but industry sources valued the Wallich uber penthouse at more than $100 million.

    The 72-year-old tycoon's purchase of Singapore's most rarefied piece of non-landed real estate comes just six months after announcing that his technology company, known for its pricey vacuum cleaners, hair dryers and air purifiers, will be moving its headquarters from Britain to Singapore.

    A Singapore Land Authority (SLA) title search on Tuesday (July 9) showed that Mr Dyson and his wife, Lady Deirdre Jessie Dyson, both UK citizens, were listed as joint tenants of the 99-year leasehold property at 3 Wallich Street, 62-01. The transaction was registered on June 20.

    The Wallich super penthouse, which has been on the market for around 18 months, was "for sale at price on asking/application, but the industry has valued its worth to be above $100 million", said Mr Leong Boon Hoe, chief operating officer of List Sotheby's International Realty, which is one of the luxe property's marketing agencies.

    This means that developers are only willing to reveal the price privately to serious buyers, he added.

    A Dyson spokesman would only confirm that its founder has bought a property in Singapore. He told The Straits Times on Tuesday: "Given the decision to locate the headquarters in Singapore and the growing focus of the company's business in the region, of course James Dyson has bought a property there."

    The 13,300 sq ft super penthouse of Reflections at Keppel Bay features spacious living and entertainment areas and a master-bedroom suite that take up entire wings of each floor.

    Developer GuocoLand said that it is not responding to media queries.

    So exclusive is the Wallich super penthouse that GuocoLand restricted viewing of the super penthouse to only ultra high net worth investors whom it deemed as serious buyers.

    The largest non-landed residence here, it sits atop Singapore's tallest building at Tanjong Pagar Centre at 951 ft (290m) above sea level, offering unobstructed views of the Central Business District, Marina Bay and Sentosa Island.

    The five-bedroom "bungalow in the sky" spans more than 21,000 sq feet from the 62nd to 64th floors, and comes with its own swimming pool, cabana, bar jacuzzi, and entertainment areas. It also has a private lift lobby and lift access to the Tanjong Pagar MRT station.

    List Sotheby's defines the super penthouse as a penthouse that is 10,000 sq ft (929 sq m) and above. A luxury penthouse is a status symbol because it usually occupies the whole top floor of an apartment block that is located in a prime residential enclave or the heart of downtown.

    The most expensive publicly known transaction in the world to date goes to hedge fund billionaire Kenneth Griffin, who blew US$238 million for a super penthouse at 220 Central Park South in New York, United States, in January this year. It is also the most expensive residential sale in US history.

    And the most expensive super penthouse currently for sale is the Tour Odéon Tower Sky Penthouse in Monaco with a price tag of US$335 million. Sitting atop the second-tallest building on Europe's Mediterranean coastline, the 35,500 sq ft five-storey penthouse boasts 360-degree views over the sea with an outdoor rooftop circular infinity pool linked to a balcony by a water slide.

    In Singapore, the most prestigious residential enclaves are found close to Orchard Road, such as Ardmore Park, Nassim Road, as well as in the financial district.

    Including Wallich, a total of eight super penthouses in Singapore have been sold since 2006. June has proven to be a busy month this year, with two uber penthouses sold including Wallich. The other is the 11,098 sq ft super penthouse in Boulevard Vue, which sold for $52 million or $4,686 psf.

    Four out of at least nine super penthouses currently on the market worldwide are in Singapore. They are at the Concourse Skyline, The Marq on Paterson, Hilltops and Reflections At Keppel Bay.

    Dyson owner forks out S$73.8m for Singapore's costliest penthouse

    Wed, Jul 10, 2019


    THE founder of privately-held British consumer electronics maker Dyson and his wife have become the owners of Singapore's most expensive condo.

    BT understands that Sir James Dyson and his wife, Deirdre, paid S$73.8 million for the triplex super penthouse at Wallich Residence, which is the Republic's tallest residence.

    The unit occupies the top three levels of the 64-storey, 290-metre high tower at Tanjong Pagar Centre developed by GuocoLand.

    The price works out to S$3,496 per square foot based on the 21,108 sq ft strata area (including 6,577 sq ft of strata void).

    Talk in the market is that the deal was entered into some months ago and completed recently.

    Tanjong Pagar Centre, an integrated mixed development that also includes offices, a hotel and retail space, is on a site with 99-year leasehold tenure starting from February 2011; this leaves a balance lease term of about 90.5 years.

    Dyson and its billionaire inventor founder, Sir James, were in the spotlight in January after the company announced that it will be moving its corporate headquarters from Malmesbury, Wiltshire in the UK, to Singapore. Sir James, an outspoken Brexiteer, and his wife are Singapore permanent residents.

    When contacted by BT on Tuesday, a Dyson spokesperson said: "Given the decision to locate the headquarters in Singapore and the growing focus of the company's business in the region, of course James Dyson has bought a property there."

    But he declined to comment further for personal privacy reasons.

    The Dysons seem to have gotten a good deal for their Singapore penthouse purchase; the price is a far cry from the S$108 million tag touted for the unit back in July 2017, although the project's developer would probably attribute the estimate to the work of agents creating hype.

    Nevertheless, the transaction is the highest in absolute price terms for a penthouse in Singapore, toppling the nearly S$60 million that Facebook cofounder Eduardo Saverin paid for the 10,300 sq ft super penthouse at the freehold Sculptura Ardmore in 2017. The transaction worked out to around S$5,650 psf. That penthouse, on levels 35 and 36, has a cantilevered private pool.

    The Wallich Residence super penthouse the Dysons bought also comes with a private pool, pool deck area, cabana, jacuzzi room, entertainment area and a cantilevered balcony with panoramic views including of the Central Business District, Marina Bay and Sentosa. It has a dedicated lift but there is no dedicated carpark lot, according to an earlier media report.

    The 181-unit Wallich Residence occupies the top 26 levels of Tanjong Pagar Centre's 64-storey tower; below the apartments are the offices, known as Guoco Tower.

    The mixed-use integrated development's second tower, which is 20 storeys, houses the Sofitel Singapore City Centre. Tanjong Pagar Centre also has a retail podium and an urban park.

    On the decision to relocate its corporate head office to Singapore, Dyson said in January that this is "to reflect the increasing importance of Asia" to its business.

    Dyson chief executive officer Jim Rowan said at the time that the move to Singapore had "nothing to do with Brexit" but was about "future-proofing" the business.

    The company, which is well-known for its bagless vacuum cleaners and bladeless fans, said that a growing majority of its customers, as well as all its manufacturing operations, are now in Asia; this shift "has been occurring for some time and will quicken as Dyson brings its electric vehicle to market".

    "As a result, an increasing proportion of Dyson's executive team is going to be based in Singapore," said the company, adding that this does not change its investment and recruitment plans.

    Dyson's upcoming electric car will be manufactured in Singapore.

    The company said the decision to move to Singapore was not made for tax reasons.

    Last year, Dyson's profit grew 33 per cent to £1.1 billion (S$1.87 billion), breaking the £1 billion mark for the first time. Turnover was up 28 per cent at £4.4 billion.
