    Marina South will carnivalise D15/east coast lor, so simple..................

    Because both cater for people who like to live at the coastal area, Marina South more central, don't need to get traffic jam on ECP, and D15 Meyer and Amber areas now is like Little India-2, so those who don't like such congregation there will shift to Marina South..................

    putting the whole reclamation of east coast aside, what does the development of new residential projects on marina south mean for D15/east coast? I have no idea how high they will be pricing these condos, cos the location is indeed very ideal.

    Besides, it was also mentioned at a 800m pedestrian walkway/ underground shopping mall will be developed btw marina south station and gardens by the bay station. Surely, with the ERL, this will benefit D15 due to its close proximity and replace suntec as the place to go?

    Ideally, the stations would go like this:
    marine terrace --> marine parade --> amber/ tanjong katong --> meyer/ fort road --> tanjong rhu --> marina east --> gardens by the bay

    Haha if Meyer/Amber become like Little India, then Telok Kurau/Bedok/Tanah Merah will be like rubbish chute area...u got to be kidding.

    Amber/Meyer area are freehold properties with sea facing. In addition, these are quiet districts with walking distance to East Coast Park where u have a real beach (sea/sand). Marina South is leasehold and though u have the sea u cant swim cause the sea is not swimable and there is no beach and sand. Its all together a different ballgame.

    Amber/Meyer will remain a favourite spot for people who love freehold at the same time the serenity to live in a peaceful, quiet environment and where the sea and the beach is a walking distance. In fact Amber/Meyer with the announcement of an ERL mrt line will make it as equally prime as Marina South in the years to come.

    By 2020, where can u find freehold, the beach, shopping, eating, good schools, mrt, greenery and near to airport all combined together - its D15 Prime (Meyer/Amber)

    The fact is Meyer/Amber will remain a favorite district for the rich n famous, whereas Marina South are mainly for office/people on the run who prefer mickey mouse units.

    D9 and 10 are for the rich. Not D15. 1.5k psf very highly sought after meh? D9 already hit pass 6k already. I like D15 also but to say it is for the rich and famous, it sounded like crap.

    ok la i think shawn exaggerated a bit.
    D9/10 are prime, no doubt, no one can argue. drive down holland road and look at those GCBs from afar and its clear to see those guys are the big shots, the king of kings.

    but one must also admit that D15 has its fair share of rich individuals. have a look at goodman/branksome/wilkinson roads. those guys are rich. down meyer road and its side lanes, those ppl are rich too! big sprawling landed properties with multiple luxury cars. the term "rich" is all relative. for me, D15 is already amazing. well, D9/10 is of a different league altogether, but how many such ppl are there in singapore? even frankel estate (where lui tuck yew our transport minister lives) is rather atas.. im not quite a fan of frankel cos i find it a bit far out from the cbd, but surely a transport minister can't quite go wrong :P

    now comparing that to neighbouring D16, ie bedok, tanah merah. yes landed properties there are, but no, the feel and exclusivity is not the same. down Jalan pari dedap/ burong, even amongst the semi-ds and bungalows, somehow u dont feel as impressed as if u were in meyer/goodman.

    im not too familiar with D10 as ive never had the priviledge of living there. but surely it must be one of the most amazing places to live in in singapore. D15 meyer where i was born and bred, has been v kind too.

    I am curious why goodman road is often singled out .. How come not the neighbouring lanes like Crescent, Branksome, Wilkinson, Poole, Swanage, Arthur road etc? I thought wilkinson road has got the largest bungalows around the vicinity, Goodman ones have become smaller and smaller over the years .. And the ones nearer to the Katong pool tend to maintain the land size whereas those nearer to Tj Katong road has been divided into smaller units

    You guys seriously screw up big time up there. D9 or D10 or D15, most living there are already top 20% of Singapore population. Dont argue too much on this. It is obvious they are different league from yishun, sembawang, punggol etc. Chill!

    Actually mountbatten side have a lot of big landed. some are also very artas. there are some with very grand entrance.

    IMHO i think goodman is often singled out cos its easy to remember! haha. i agree, whether its goodman/branksome/bournemouth/wilkinson.. doesnt matter. they are all in the same league. we use goodman cos its rather easy to rmb and to rolls of the tongue more easily than the rest.

    crescent on the other hand runs perpendicular to those roads mentioned above. apparently crescent road divides the bungalows on one side, from the semi-ds on the other side. of course i dont think this is totally the case cos theres a mixture of both on both sides of crescent rd, but it largely remains true. so yes ur right in that those nearer katong pool are mainly bungalows. closer to TK road are mainly semi-ds.

    as for those smaller/shorter road closer to dunman road (i cant rmb their name.. but i think one of it is Poole road), i feel those are less prestigious as they are almost bordering D14? but still.. bungalows are bungalows.

    not forgetting those off meyer road ie margate road, broadrick road. they are quite awesome too. and of course, those off mountbatten road such as walton road... such HUGE houses.

    top 20% only? not good enough la.
    those in D10 are definitely top 5%. come on..

    of course D9/10/15 are not in the same league as jurong, clementi, tampines, woodlands, yishun, amk, bishan, bedok, loyang, even west coast la. but must compare good with better. no point comparing with something worse. as with everything in life
