In recent years, you may have seen or heard countless new launches in Singapore – be it in the north, south, east or west.

This is where the new Martin Modern condo will be.

What makes Martin Modern condo so special and a project not to be missed is its excellent location in the city centre. In fact, it’s one of the rarest locations in Singapore where you will see a land sale from government taking place. The last one was in fact at Mount Sophia back in 2013, which currently sits Sophia Hills condo by Hoi Hup Realty.

The subject plot of land was, in fact, one of the most eye-catching land tenders in 2016. It drew a total of 13 bids with a top bid coming in from GuocoLand at $595.1 million (or $1,239 psf ppr), making it even more pricey than the last government land sale (GLS) at Mount Sophia.

Let’s take a look at what Martin Modern has to offer to Singapore’s property market and is this going to be the best condo project in 2019.

Being branded as a luxury developer and one of the real estate arms of Hong Leong Group, GuocoLand is a prime real estate developer in Singapore which is very well-known for delivering some of the finest real estate projects.

With the property market being subdued for the last couple of years, Sims Urban Oasis at Aljunied is, in fact, their only ongoing new launch project right now. Despite being in the suburban region, GuocoLand is not shortchanging buyers and is not compromising on the quality being offered.

Martin Modern Location

Martin Modern is perhaps most attractive in terms of its location. Being located in one of the most highly sought-after locations by expatriates, this classy condo development already has several dining and entertainment options within the Robertson Quay neighborhood.

Further down, there are established shopping malls and complexes around its vicinity, including [email protected], Orchard Central, UE Shopping Mall, Liang Court and Great World City.

Martin Modern Review

The Robertson Quay precinct has always been one of the top spots in District 9 as the perfect choice for the yuppies and those who choose affordable luxury living along with a stress-free life.

Martin Modern offers an array of attractive options for people who enjoy the outdoors, as it is located near the Singapore riverside.

The number of amenities and living concept provided at the condo is perhaps unmatched in the area. Not surprisingly, thanks to its developer GuocoLand who has successfully delivered a number of real estate projects in the past and made a name for itself as one of the most reputable developers in Singapore’s property market.

The newest developments in the area would be [email protected] Quay by City Developments Ltd – completed in 2016 and Starlight Suites by TA Corporation – completed back in 2015.

Martin Modern Condo by CDL

Given the indication of an average psf price of S$2,300, it does sound kinda steep if you were to compare to the other current launch in District 9 – Sophia Hills, which is only averaging around S$1,965 psf for the past 6 months (as of 05 June 2017).

However, if you are just comparing between projects within the Robertson Quay and Martin Place precincts, you may want to put some serious consideration into Martin Modern for your next property acquisition.

As usual, we will start off our Martin Modern review with some apple-to-apple comparisons.

The newest 99-year project in the precinct is, in fact, [email protected] Quay – a mixed hotel (M Social) & residential development by CDL. Here are some of its earlier transactions (sold directly by the developer):

If you are someone who is looking at investment opportunities (not a short-term one please) in the area – which I feel is a fantastic location for owning a property, you can probably look at some of the ready or resale projects (and yes, they are all freehold).

It’s no doubt that Martin Modern will be a great development for buyers looking to purchase for own consumption and prefers a brand new condo, as it provides accessibility to the whole of Singapore through its close connection to major arterial roads and expressways.
