2022 is the year of the luxury condominium apartment. With sales taking off at an unprecedented rate as life in the city-state returns to a new normal, Insights takes you on a journey to some of the top condominium units available for sale.
Le Nouvel Ardmore
We start our journey at the heart of District 10. What sets this place apart from others is its exclusivity, with only 43 units available, as well as privacy, away from the hustle and bustle of city life.
Don’t be fooled by its modern, grid-like façade, as Le Nouvel Ardmore features resort-style landscaping and amenities that include an integrated pool spa, jacuzzies and steam rooms. In addition to pampering yourself in your own residential spa, you can work up a sweat at the tennis court while the kids enjoy the playground and clubhouse facilities.
The Observatoire, situated on the 27th floor, is a private dining mezzanine that boasts magnificent views of the city skyline, making it perfect for a date night practically without having to leave home, or for a small soiree of special guests.
Le Nouvel Ardmore is a choice pick for all, especially for couples and young families, with not one or two but three MRT stations right at its doorstep, namely Orchard, Stevens and Newton. In addition, many elite schools can be found just a short ride away, be it by car or public transport.
Marina One Residences
What’s unique about Marina One is that while it’s located within the heart of the Central Business District, it also faces the waterfront as one of the few luxury condominiums close to Marina Bay. But what will really take your breath away is the 13-metre-high waterfall within its grounds, comparable to the Rain Vortex at Jewel, Changi Airport. This makes the feature a favourite among Instagram enthusiasts and the like. This stunning feature remains open to the public, bringing a bit of the city’s social pulse into the residence. However, the 50-metre lap pool is only accessible to residents, among other exclusive amenities such as the private dining rooms and lounges, Teppanyaki terraces and spaces for social gatherings and parties.
Beneath a total of 1,042 units lies a shopping mall in its basement, bragging an array of restaurants, a supermarket and a renowned fitness centre, Virgin Active.
Among the newest developments along the waterfront, Marina One Residences incorporates the Lion City’s ideal of being a city within a garden, as evident in the lush green 65000 sqft Biodiversity Garden incorporated into the landscape. The condominium also enjoys integrated public and private spaces and four MRT stations literally within a stone’s throw.
Les Maisons Nassim
One cannot speak of luxury condominiums without mentioning the ultra-luxury Les Maisons Nassim. Even with property cooling measures in place, like the additional buyer’s stamp duty (ABSD) of 30% for foreigners, apartments here continue getting snapped up.
Three units at this development on Nassim Road recently sold for more than $35 million each, with one 8,633sqf unit going for $49 million, making Les Maisons Nassim residences the most expensive non-penthouse units in town. A 12,077sqft unit went for $75 Million ($6,210 psf) in 2021 according to SRX. Nestled within the tropical greenery of the Singapore Botanic Gardens and its surrounding flora, in the heart of the historical Orchard-Tanglin expat enclave, it is no wonder that this property continues to reach greater peaks in value and prestige over the years.
Corals @Keppel Bay
Another waterfront condominium – one farther away from the city centre – is Corals@Keppel Bay, the perfect getaway residence if it’s island living and the cool sea breeze you seek. Imagine long strolls along the coastline that borders the property, with views of Sentosa Island and the cable cars that connect it to the mainland.
Within the premises, you’d be spoilt for choice on what to do, with its 16 different facilities that include a Splash Pool with Jumping Jets, a Hydro Spa, BBQ pavilions and the Clubhouse – complete with state-of-the-art gym equipment and even yoga studios. But if it’s some me-time you crave, stroll down the Forest Walk, as you bond with nature within the residence.
Should you miss the buzz of city life, VivoCity Mall, which is located down the road (yes, you can walk there within 15 minutes if you like) and Resorts World Sentosa, just across the strip of tranquil blue water, will satisfy your hunger for gastronomical delights while keeping you amply busy with shopping. The trains from Harbourfront MRT will also whisk you back into the city centre if it’s a night of partying at its various pubs, clubs and rooftop bars that you desire.
The name Sculptura Ardmore has almost become synonymous with that of Facebook co-founder, Eduardo Saverin, who dropped a cool $60 million for its super penthouse in 2017.
There is no doubt that this condominium is all about the high life for society’s elites, especially since it’s located in the heart of the city at Ardmore Park. Among the most expensive condominiums in Singapore, the 4-5 room apartments at Sculptura Ardmore enjoy the exclusivity of being the only unit on each floor, with 360-degree views of the surrounding park’s greenery or the cityscape as you travel upwards. True to its name, the building stands out like an iconic sculpture, with its pure-glass fins creating a stunning effect, naturally reflecting the sunlight at different angles throughout the day.
The clincher for this luxury condominium? Apart from the 30-metre rooftop lap pool, jacuzzi and magnificent sky gardens, you’ll also be offered exclusive memberships and perks at the surrounding clubs, such as The American Club, Tanglin Club and the Tanglin Golf Course Country Club. With prestigious clubs as these extending memberships to residents, you know your home sits at the pinnacle of city living indeed.
