Ms May Tan, Head of Residential Projects at CBRE, the appointed marketing agent for 8 St Thomas, commented “Compared to recent market transactions and land bids under the government land sales program and collective sales transactions in prime districts 9 and 10, 8 St Thomas presents a sound value proposition for both owner-occupiers and investors. With one- and two-bedders priced from $1.42 million and $1.78 million respectively, savvy prospective buyers will find 8 St Thomas palatable for a premier freehold project located in a prestigious area.”

8 St Thomas is a highly-anticipated brand new freehold luxury project with only 250 exclusive units in the heart of District 9, Orchard Road.

With sprawling lush land size of almost one hectare and full condominium facilities, home-owners can select from a range of one- to four- bedroom units, four-bedroom dual-key units and penthouses, starting from an area of 441 sq ft up to 2,659 sq ft.

Each home comes with exclusively selected designer fittings and finishes to provide all the comforts of urban living.

Every unit is fitted with a home automation system that controls access to the unit, lights and air-conditioners. Designed to be an eco-paradise, homes at 8 St Thomas include energy and water efficient fittings, as well as green features such as green lots for charging electric cars. 8 St Thomas has been awarded the Building Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Gold.
