    I guess you know nothing about the architect and the project.

    Next year go and checkout Aristo

    Many people didn't realize the downside of buy a property with conserved house(s). They will know once they have lived for 10 years or more. The cost to conserve and maintain the conserved house(s) according to the rules and regulations and requirements under the conservation law means that they will end up paying an arm and a leg in maintenance fund to maintain that conserved house(s) (conserved by government but end up expenses paid by the strata title owners!).

    Another good example is The Wharf Residences. Go and find out how much is their maintenance fund despite the large number of units in the estate.

    I am slightly closer to city. I use the nicoll highway. I still need 10 min to city. Is it possible to make it to city within 10 minutes at 8am as you have mentioned earllier?

    I used to travel along ECP in the morning towards the city, at morning peak hours (and evening peak hours from city towards East Coast), the traffic was jammed like hell! I had also used CTE before and I can bet that they are really not much difference. Just to travel from Fort Road entrance into ECP and to arrive in Shenton Way takes me >15 mins!

    If you take forever to get to work, you are definitely a later riser who leave home after 8am. If you leave for work at 7.30am, 10 mins is possible.

    What you are talking is non-peak hours. If this is the case, there are many other places to live that can get people to say Shenton Way within 10 mins any time of the day and don't have to even wake up early to avoid peak hours or leave workplace early or late just to avoid peak hours and don't have to pay ERP as well.

    why the heck am i paying $2000psf for a grand entrance? if the development depends on it to command that price, it's not even worth a dump. if u say i'm paying $2000psf for the location or whatever, fine. just don't say a bloody conserved grand entrance will entice people to pay that kind of price

    well its a small grand entrance I dont think maintenance costs will go to the sky . Most important is the concept of The Aristo. Its beautiful grand entrance is one of its only kind in Singapore.

    No where else can such concept be found.

    And to top it all, The Aristo has sea views as good as SilverSea. And a beautiful infinity edge pool on the 14 floor.

    And it only has 56 units.

    How do u define luxury then ?

    Luxury is when people are willing to pay >$2400 psf now to buy the property. Let's see whether the grand entrance can make Aristo becomes "luxury".

    checked out propertyguru. the transactions back in july/aug 2008 were at $1600-1700psf, but now it's $1200+psf.

    not sure if the comparison is accurate as it could be units of different sizes. does anyone have any idea what's the psf at launch?

    Does it means that its considered a good buy now, since OA is already selling at $1.5Kpsf?

    You have to really study the floorplan carefully to see if it is good for you or your prospective tenants. We did not like it but it may be suitable for you.

    guess now it's more like a normalization, trending downwards to the average psf for the amber area.

    come to think of it, 1600-1700psf is pretty steep even during the launch time when everything was still rosy, albeit about to sputter and die.

    just wonder how much was amber residences' psf at its launch. that's another expensive project as i recollect during the downturn a year ago, the remaining units were being priced by the developer at 1100-1200psf

    So u know now the huge potential of the Aristo once its Top.

    The earlier units sold at $1600 during the good economic times in 2008. By mid 2009, all Aristo units were sold as developer dropped the price to $1,000 to $1,100 psf due to the financial crisis in 2009. Not only Aristo but everywhere is cheap in early 2009.

    As such, there is not much sales activity left for the Aristo now as all units sold. Subsale is slow as this condo is not Top yet .

    Once it TOP it will be too late to buy as I expect the units to sell from $1,500 psf to $2,000 psf .
