So, here’s some insight into what one can expect from this upcoming real estate development, which is sure to be a most elite and luxurious living destination.
Sturdee Residences Developer
Sturdee Residences is being made under the aegis of famous Singapore-based developer – Sustained Land Pte Ltd. Incorporated in 2006, this real estate firm has earned itself a good reputation in a short span of time, owing to the success of its numerous projects. Properties such as 8M Residences, Regent Residences, Tivoli Grande, Coastal Breeze Residences, Coastal View Residences, 38 iSuites and more have all received phenomenal response.
It is then not surprising that the Singaporean audience has high expectations of Sturdee Residences, given that Sustained Land Pte Ltd is associated with it. In fact, with the latter firm in-charge of project execution, high quality output, well-designed homes and timely completion of the same is a surety.
But when buying a house, one looks for more than just a good developer. In other aspects of real estate assessment as well, Sturdee Residences does not fail to impress. And the reasons for this become more evident below.
Sturdee Residences Location
Sturdee Residences is located at Sturdee Road in city fringe District 8, which is simply ideal. It shall allow residents access to all amenities and destinations at the heart of the city. With the Farrer Park MRT being a few minutes’ walk away, distant city locales are also easily accessible. The closest new launch developments in recent years are Forte Suites and The Citron Residences.
Major roadways including the Central Expressway (CTE), Pan Island Expressway (PIE), Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway and Nicoll Highway also fall close by; they ensure seamless connectivity to popular destinations such as the Central Business District, Marina Bay Financial Centre and Orchard Road Shopping Belt, all of which are a short drive away.
The immediate vicinity of the building site is also a thriving hub of various amenities. Future residents’ with young children will be in close proximity of numerous reputed educational institutions such as Farrer Park Primary School, Bendemeer Secondary School, Anglo-Chinese School (Junior), Hong Wen School, Italian Supplementary School, School of the Arts, Singapore, Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts, Insworld Institute and more.
Apart from education, other routine needs can also be easily met with, given the abundance of multi-utility complexes surrounding Sturdee Residences condo. With City Square Shopping Mall, Serangoon Plaza, Mustafa Centre and Bendemeer Shopping Mall being just a stone’s throw away, residents’ shall not need to venture far for groceries, salon and banking services, restaurants and fine dining or entertainment either.
Therefore, living at Sturdee Residences would ensure home owners the unique privilege of being extremely close to the heart of the city but suitably distant from its noisy environs. And that’s not all – the wonderful location shall be complemented by an equally fantastic condominium interior, as is explicated below.

Sturdee Residences Review
The above description of this upcoming property is enticing and impressive in its own right. With the likes of Poiz Residences and Principal Garden making the headlines for new launch projects in the city fringe region, Sturdee Residences look set to capture a strong a demand from the market.
Looking at only District 8, it’s been at least 5 years since we’ve last seen a full condominium launch in the area (with the recent one being Cityscape at Farrer Park – a freehold 30-storey condo at Mergui Road). In fact, there isn’t much prominent condominiums in the district other than City Square Residences, Citylights and the much older Kerrisdale condo.
2 weeks prior to the actual launch, here’s the price guide we’ve received:
1-BR: From S$6xx,000
2-BR: From S$8xx,000
3-BR: From S$1.1xM
4-BR: From S$1.7xM
5-BR Single Level Penthouse: From S$2.4xM
From the looks of it, the price looks really attractive – considered the fact of its city-fringe location. However, I will personally recommend nothing more than the 1-bedroom unit. Here’s why.
The Bigger Units Are A Little Too Small
In the past, property buyers usually refer studio/1-bedroom units as shoebox apartments, or “micky mouse” units. I suppose you can say the same for the 2/3/4 bedroom units at Sturdee Residences as well.
The above is the floor plan of a 4-bedroom unit at Sturdee Residences. Just by looking the the layout, it’s probably a little too small for most households. I suppose many buyers will appreciate more if most of balcony spaces are used for bedrooms instead.
How about the price for such a unit? Assuming it is priced at S$1.75 million (of course it will be something on a lower floor level), the psf price will work out to be S$1,344 psf. In my opinion, it does look fairly reasonable.
Let’s check out how it compares to the other “big boys” in the area.
|Name of Property||Year of Completion||Tenure||Number of Units||Average PSF$*|
|CITY SQUARE RESIDENCES||2009||FREEHOLD||910||1,496|
* Based on transaction records from 2015 to 2016
If we are just looking at the total amount or quantum for a particular unit type, it is definitely attractive. For only S$8xxk, you can own a 2-bedroom unit in the city fringe precinct. But sadly it’s only a 570-sqft unit, which it could translate to a starting PSF price of as high as S$1,577 psf.
The PSF price may seem a little scary, but if you were to look at City Square Residences, a 570-sqft 1-bedroom unit has recently changed hands for S$980,000 (or S$1,718 psf) on 22 March 2016.
Taking into consideration that Sturdee Residences is a 99-year leasehold condo (but brand new), then a S$1,500++ psf price tag for such a unit will seem fair enough as compared to City Square Residences which is a freehold condo.
There are definitely several more positive attributes attached to life at Sturdee Residences. First and foremost, it is a prominent city fringe address and having a home here would be a matter of much pride and prestige.
Also, although its close proximity to Little India may be an issue to many property buyers, it is still a lovely living environment in my opinion. And despite its location in the midst of the busy city, Sturdee Residences would ensure a serene atmosphere, ideal for relaxation.
And finally, from a solely monetary perspective, this new launch condo will be an intelligent investment; value of property is such a prime location will only appreciate in times to come. Thus, the reasons for living at Sturdee Residences are plenty; it is a class above all one’s expectations of their “home sweet home”.
