Marina One Residences Review
Marina Bay has always been well-known as a “global address” to the rest of world. It has attracted massive interest for foreign investors and even locals as well. If you haven’t know about this, The Sail @ Marina Bay and Marina Bay Residences were fully-sold developments during their individual launches. And also, all units at Marina Bay Suites has also been 100% fully snapped up as of 15 September 2015 (with the last 3 units being sold in just months after attaining T.O.P).
That means, the only “available stock” in Marina Bay can only be found in Marina One Residences. Despite uncertainties in Singapore’s property market, 317 units (as recorded) were sold in less than a year. It’s really not surprising as they are being priced slightly lower than its surrounding properties. And also, with Marina Bay Residences and The Sail @ Marina Bay attaining a historical high PSF transacted at S$4,368 and S$3,499 psf respectively (in 2011 during market’s peak), it isn’t difficult to see how much potential can a residential unit at Marina One achieve when the entry PSF is only S$1,964 to $2,826.
And just one more thing to note, currently the developer of Marina One Residences are only planning to selling units from one of the 2 residential towers. The other will only be released for sale after it has obtained T.O.P or completion.
There is no death of arguments one can offer in favour of living in at Marina One Residences – they present stunning prospects to potential buyers and more. But there are several key takeaways that need be highlighted. First and foremost, the beautiful internal landscape and lush greenery in the surrounding area makes this condominium an idyllic escape in the middle of busy, bustling Singapore. One will not just have a tranquil environment in which to rejuvenate his senses but also a healthy living space, wonderful for raising children.
Furthermore, the facilities provided here cater to the needs of the younger folk and adults alike. And most importantly, being a prime property that is widely anticipated and well-located, it can be a good real estate investment that shall reap high returns in times to come. Thus, owning a home at Marina One Residences would be a joyous proposition for anyway who loves nature, convenience and luxury.
