How does The Venue Residences price compare with the nearby condo launches?
As of 05 Nov 2015, other than The Venue Residences, there are 2 other new launch condos next to Potong Pasir MRT Station which are under construction – namely Sennett Residence and Sant Ritz. Here’s a comparison of the average psf among these 3 developments (from all the units being transacted so far).
|PROJECT NAME||TENURE||NO. OF UNITS||STATUS||AVERAGE PSF (S$)||NO. OF TRANSACTIONS RECORDED|
|THE VENUE RESIDENCES||99 YRS FROM 2012||266||UNCOMPLETED||1,406||92|
|SENNETT RESIDENCE||99 YRS FROM 2011||332||UNCOMPLETED||1,465||291|

The Venue Residences Review
As shown in earlier average price comparison, it does seem like the units at The Venue Residences are priced cheaper than its fellow neighbouring properties (despite being the newest among all). In order to be more specific when comparing prices among them, let’s take a look at how much a 2-bedroom unit is sold at each of these developments.
Of course, we should be doing an “apple-to-apple” comparison. Thus we shall be using 2-bedroom units with similar sizes and floor level (which for this instance on the 10th floor).
|PROJECT NAME||SIZE (SQFT)||TRANSACTED PSF (S$)||TRANSACTED PRICE (S$)||DATE OF SALE|
|THE VENUE RESIDENCES||850||1,447||1,230,750||20-Nov-13|
Although not by a big margin, but you can see that The Venue Residences does seem like the cheaper option when compared to the rest. In case you are not aware, there aren’t any more 2-bedroom units left at both Sennett Residences or Sant Ritz. So if you missed out on these 2 condominiums earlier, there’s still The Venue Residences and it’s certainly not a bad thing.
If you are looking at this as an investment, the growth and planning for the Bidadari new town should be something that excites you. The Venue Residences & Shoppes will be located on the edge of this upcoming new town.
Being in the central region of Singapore, the Bidadari estate will be well-served by various MRT Stations such as Bartley and Woodleigh. A project population of 11,000 will be calling this serene urban estate their home in time to come. Then again, if you are expecting an explosive growth in terms of prices for your property at The Venue Residences, it’s pretty unlikely to happen (there are many reasons why).
The aforementioned features of The Venue Residences and Shoppes are, in themselves, very impressive and enticing. There are however, a few more unique attributes that shall draw more people to it. One, this residential complex will be a suitable option for all kinds of individuals, given the brilliant location and versatile range of amenities.
Also, being in the midst of an upcoming city fringe area, home owners can expect constant development and improvement of their surrounding localities. And this very fact makes it a superior investment prospect as well.
Lastly, the amount of space within each residential unit itself is a rare luxury these days. Taking its 2-bedroom units as an example, you hardly see many developers of new launch condos these days offering 2-bedroom units at more than 800-sqft. Usually they are only slightly more than 700-sqft in size.
With all being said and taking the upcoming The Andrew Residences (renamed to The Poiz Residences on 03 Nov 2015) having a home in The Venue Residences is possibly a lucrative proposition that will leave one feeling secure and excited about their future.
