There are not many new condominium launches in the west coast area of Singapore, or around the Jurong Lake District. For some reason, perhaps because of perceived demand, and also perhaps due to more enbloc activity in other parts, such as in the eastern side of Singapore. Because of that Whistler Grand should enjoy some pent up demand, as it will preview at least 9 months after the previous launch next door at Twin VEW.

This project at West Coast Vale is being developed by a brand name developer, City Developments Limited (CDL). CDL is a home-grown developer that has been in business for decades, and enjoys a well earned reputation for quality. The Whistler Grand condo will be their latest launch in a string of hundreds of projects that they have developed over the years.

The location is at West Coast Vale, part of a private housing estate at the edge of the Jurong Lake District, that is being touted as the upcoming 2nd CBD of Singapore (withdrawal of the HSR notwithstanding). The site itself is not within easy walking distance of an MRT station, and unlikely to be for the foreseeable future either. However, with the construction of the Jurong Region Line (East), the Pandan Reservoir MRT station could be about 15 minutes walk away. But that is not going to be until around 2027, about 5 years after the completion of the Whistler Grand condo.

Whistler Grand itself will add 718 new apartments in two 36-storey towers, to the housing stock in the neighbourhood. The site will span over 210K sq ft of land. The exact date of the VIP Preview has not been decided yet, but it is likely to be around the end of 2018 or in early 2019.
