    No worries. I live there so I know the distance well. The bus stop from Alexis to the next bus stop at Queenstown is a normal distance not the far distance.

    Why are you guys even othering to compare PS with Alexis. They are worlds apart of course in PS favour. At least you can walk to Orchard Rd and the nearby shopping centres within a few minites from PS. From Alexis to Orchard Rd will take 1 hour to walk. No major shopping centres etc. How to compare.

Alexis if $450k, 100% loan then monthly instalment: $1957/mth!!! you get to cook and eat in Alexis while hotel81 does not allows cooking at all. end of the day, do we get to own hotel81?

    Rental wise, if Alexis with facilities only $1200/mth then how much a hdb in Meiling, Stirling, Queenstown, Commonwealth without facilities should cost? may be $500/mth?

    Then maybe maintenance for Alexis also be charging more rather than $50/mth since with facilities and a hdb avg already charging $45/mth.

    Maintenance charge for Alexis: Min $50/mth, Max $70/mth, car park separately charged at $80 per lot per mth for families which drive

    take singapore map (expanded version)

    take a protractor .. using Orchard + Scotts as the Centre of Prime district ..

    draw circles as you go further away .. each circle represents a certain PSF ...getting smaller as you move further from centre ...

    if Alexis is 1000 psf ... just imagine what you will be paying for holland , one tree hill, river valley ...

    i can only say ... Alexis is EXPENSIVE ....

    if near MRT is the only reason ... then Caspian is damn cheap ... way before 1000 psf ... after all its only 5-6 stations from Alexis ..

    Will just say that the one very important point about PS is that the nearest MRT station is the interchage for 3 lines. Lots of buses to go anyway if dun want to take train.


    Second most important point is the rental demand will be good due to the various schools that I had mention from the previous thread.

    Lastly, its in Orchard aread as compared to queenstown area (not that QT is no good ah). The reason I say that is because one of the reason that's always quoted for buying Alexis its due to its proximity to Orchard. If that's the case, then i rather stay in Orchard itself!!!

    I use to walk to queenstown MRT too. But i have not noticed that it will take me 10 mins to walk from the old coffee shop to the MRT. Perhaps next time i can roughly time it.

    I can confirm that as I have tried. Therefore, I kept saying the distance feel is about 2 bus-stop away... instead of 1.

    To be fair, your idea of one bus stop may differ from someone else's idea of one bus stop. In that sense, timing it may be a more objective manner of assessing the distance.

    In any event, I myself also live in the area, and I would sum it up thus. The MRT station is definitely not as near to Alexis as Huttons would like you to believe. It is not TWO minutes away, as I recall some brochures saying. However, it is definitely within a comfortable and convenient walking distance. I dare say Alexis residents are nearer to a MRT station than 95% of Singapore. Yes, no shelter perhaps, but also no steep slopes or stairs to climb. I think that's a fair compromise and most of us would be happy if a MRT station was within ten minutes away.

    Agreed. Certainly not within 2 min unless fast walk. But reasonably less than 10 min.

    Really amazed at the no. of flippers during this time. Probably becuase of the low 5% they have to pay initially, follow by 15% within 8 weeks. So these flippers have a window of 8 weeks to flip, failing which they have to forked out 15%, which they may or may not have.

    Flipping in the current market is plain suicidal, buying at about 1000 psf and trying to flip for 10% premium is a long shot, if there's really buyer for these flippers, then I really pity these buyers.

    I'm really very curious if anyone succeeded in flipping during this time, if so, please share any done deal transactions here. The caveat launched with URA would probably take few months before the transaction is reflected.

    By the way, I did tried to walk from showflat to the MRT, and it definitely takes more than 3 minutes it advertised in the brochure...sigh...marketing...

    i personally tried walking from mrt to back gate and was a leisure walk of approx.3mins and ofcourse depends on where you tried walking thru

    Hey Pet,

    Not saying that you are lying. But there are another person saying that he tried more than 3 min and I am saying 10min. You must be super tall (I already 1.8m).

    The block of Queen Condo is already quite a long block which even after you finished walking pass Queen, you still not yet reach the MRT station.

    My understanding of 3 min distance are the following Condo: MeraPrime, The Mertopolitan Condo or Queen).
