In less than 10 days’ time, a new luxury property in Robertson Quay will be launched, and hopefully to continued positive response from buyers.
The demand for upmarket luxury properties have been encouraging this year, after a few quarters of falling prices and lacklustre sales. GuocoLand’s Martin Modern will perhaps hit the market at just the right time as buyers have been gradually filtering back into the market. The 450-unit property is one of the larger-scale high-end residential to launch in the Robertson Quay area for the last 8 years and units are expected to be released in phases.
Projected to launch on July 22, the 99-year leasehold Martin Modern condominium is situated between Martin Place and River Valley Close. Prices of the units are expected to hover around $2,300 psf with the smallest apartments starting at $1.8 million, higher than the average transacted price of $1,969 psf for units at the neighbouring Martin Place Residences.
The development will hold two 3o-storey towers with apartments ranging from 2-bedders to four-bedders. The 150 two-bedroom units will be sized at 764 sq ft, while there are also other options such as two-bedders plus study, three-bedders, premium three-bedders and four-bedders. The largest units being the four-bedders, will range from 1,701 sq ft to 1,798 sq ft.
The targeted completion date will be in 2022, and by then the Great World MRT station on the Thomson East-Coast line, which is just a 5-minute walk away, will be ready and in action. The developers are expecting a proportionate mix of owner-occupiers and investors picking up units at the launch.
