    Default Glendale Park - Any reviews pls?

    Any residents of Glendale Park here care to give a review ?
    How does it match up with the rest of the condo in Hillview ?

    TIA

    its free form pool is nice and the gym is good size ! IF u like hillview area, think the current 600psf for a FH is worth it..

    thanks for your feedback kal ...

    i like it that its nestle at the corner of hillview ave where its not that clustered with other development and you can really have some "hillview" .. also the proximity from the future hillview mrt station ..

    not sure what will become of the plot of land diagonally opposite it though ...

    are you a resident there ?

    Glendale Park is just beside Mindef and the Malaysia-Singapore Railway Track. It is also out of the way from amenities except The Rail Mall with hardly anything except eateries, a supermarket and a video shop. The MRT station in front of the Salvation army is a long shot away (7 years). If you have a car and enjoy being tucked away from the rest of the world, this is the place. if you rely on public transport like the MRT, this is definitely not a place to buy. A better condo to look at would be signature park with a huge piece of land that you can spend a whole day walking inside. the condo is not too far from bt timah shopping area and the canadian school and is priced far below park natura (1k psf) although it is in a better location than the latter....

    thanks for your feedback ..

    true to a certain extend .. mrt will only come @ 2015 ..

    but doesn't glendale park have a side gate where you can exit to hillview road and just take a short walk up to standard chartered where there are a number of buses plying the route?

    Signature park seems not bad too but tucked too far into jalan jurong kechil where not many buses ply ??

    Agreed! Glendale is a much better bet vs Signature Park. U just need to deal with construction inconveniences from 2nd half 2010 to 2014.

    My point of comparison between glendale and signature park takes into consideration the following:

    1. more amenities
    2. better facilities
    3. prospect of en-bloc with larger land area in propotion to number of units
    4. proximity to main shopping area in bukit timah
    5. under D21, not 23
    6. No Railway track beside the development
    7. walking distance to future MRT station near beauty world
    8. close proximity to International school in the area

    The above are reasons why Signature would be a better bet as compared to Glendale. My advice is take a stroll around the inside of signature park and glendale and make a physical comparison. Many units at signature are tenanted out and the only reason i can see is that the place is in high demand among foreign students and expats.

    Fyc, U might wan to consider DAIRY FARM which is diagonally opp. to GLENDALE PARK but does not have the Malayan Railway Track/MINDEF limitatins and the traffic bottleneck issue in Hillview Avenue facing by the latter.

    It is also just beside the hillview mrt station when it's up and running. I am currently on the lookout at dairy farm for a possible investment.

    I stayed there many yrs ago. To be honest, I didnt hear any train sound as my unit is facing main gate. If u consider hillview area, means u like hillview compare to bukit timah/jurong kechil side. So why compare with signature park? The side gate to Rail Mall is within 5mins walk. To me, bukit timah shopping centre is not as good as rail mall !!

    Another development that u can consider is Parc Palais.. I find it appealing too..
