As one of the most vibrant cities in the world and known for its financial district skyscrapers, glamorous shopping malls and luxurious bay area restaurants, Singapore has long topped the list as one of the most favourite countries to visit. In addition to these glimmering cosmopolitan life, the Lion City has much more to offer from public infrastructure, cleanliness, safety, healthcare to world-class education. These qualities of life do not only attract travellers, but also those who are looking for a holiday home or investment properties.
If you are looking to invest your money in a property that provides elevated quality of life, Alba and Skyline @ Orchard Boulevard in Singapore could be worth considering.
Developed by the largest private property developer in Singapore, Far East Organization, the two inessence developments are guided by one simple principle: luxury is a distinctive and individual experience. They also adhere to the uncompromising pillars: a prime location, a unique design by an architectural visionary, and thoughtfulness in space and details.
Alba is a freehold luxury residence that is a short stroll from the prime Orchard Road shopping belt (District 9), 8 minutes’ walking to Mount Elizabeth Hospital (Orchard) and Paragon, as well as three MRT stations, namely Orchard, Somerset and Newton (connecting Thomson East Coast Line, Downtown Line and North South Line).
Located at Cairnhill Rise, Alba’s unique micro-location on the higher ground provides added privacy and serenity in the heart of Orchard Road. Living in high floor units will also reward you with far-reaching city views.
The distinctly Y-shaped architecture is designed by Bernardo Fort-Brescia of Arquitectonica, whose well-known projects include the Landmark East in Hong Kong; the Bronx Museum in New York; the headquarters of the Construction Bank and Agricultural Bank of China in Shanghai; Icon Bay, Regalia, Ritz-Carlton Residences and W Hotel in Miami, the International Financial Center in Seoul; the Microsoft Europe Headquarters in Paris and the Pierce Boston in Boston.
Investment-wise, property portal EdgeProp.sg’s chart from the first quarter of 2015 until January 2020 shows that the property prices in the Cairnhill enclave outperformed the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s Core Central Region (CCR) with a steeper gradient of price increase partly because the new supply in the area is rare. The website explains that there had only been two collective sales sites in the first half of 2018 and the new supply in the pipeline is also low, indicating that the interest in properties and new launches in the area should be healthy.
Suitable for those looking for the luxury lifestyle, as well as a designer home, the sophisticated Alba offers three 4-bedroom units and a 5-bedroom penthouse.
Skyline @ Orchard Boulevard
Located in the heart of Orchard Road, next to 2 MRT Stations (Orchard MRT Station & Orchard Boulevard MRT Station to be completed in 2021), Skyline @ Orchard Boulevard is designed by world-famous architect Fumihiko Maki. The 33-storey development offers 40 exclusive units, on each floor, every unit has a balcony overlooking Singapore’s Orchard Road. 4- and 5-bedroom units are available on the 30th and 31st floors and each unit spans 3,767 sq ft. Meanwhile, the triplex penthouse on the 32nd-34th floor provides stunning views of Singapore.
