    Default Bayshore Park questions

    Hello all, need some help with Bayshore Park. I am curious about the walls of the apartment, seems that it is not like the normal walls of most developments. The walls are hollow, not sure what the correct term is called. The walls are the same is those you see in other countries in the west. Is this the norm throughout the entire development?

    Is norm for bayshore park. It is built this way. U can reconfgure the layout, just take note of the pillars and conceal piping.

    Would the false walls give an impression of lower value?

    I am also concerned with the bathroom walls, some units that I have viewed seems to have water leaking through.

    the value of bayshore park is not in its interior or layout. it is the space, greenery, location, seaview, and the enbloc potential.

    for the water leaking problem, i think, if buy into old project, renovation is inevitable, unless you buy a newly renovated unit.

    When U renovate, change ALL the water piping. Ask for the longest lasting type of piping,... some resin type is the latest I heard. full external piping should cost <$3K I heard for a condo, that with good material and thoughtful layout.

    Value is subjective. You may have an original condition apt with water leakage BUT a splendid full seaview which may still command a higher value than a superbly renvoated apt with no-view at all.

    I have seen some very well renovated ones in bayshore but will still settle for a run-down one with great seaview anytime but that's just me. My stance is that interiors can always be fixed with a bit of $$$ but a lousy view cannot be rectified no matter how much you spend.

    The good thing about bayshore park is the wide expanse of space and the seaview for certain units. It is quite pleasant to take a walk around the estate in the evenings. It also has its conveniences such as proximity to the beach, a mini-mart and food outlets. When I owned units there before, Koreans used to like to rent the place.

    There are pros and cons with the plaster walls. It makes it very easy to reconfigure the layout. The only problem is soundproofing as the walls will be quite thin. As for water leakage, it is a perennial problem for old apts. Understand the mgt replaced the main pipes some years back but the piping in the individual apts was not touched and would be quite old already. One of my bayshore apt was affected by water leakage from the top unit's master bathroom and the owner had to foot the bill. Also the lifts used to break down quite frequently although I do not know whether the MC has done anything to rectify or replace.

    Just my worth.

    Also, this thread should be moved to D.16.
