My review of JadeScape – Since the introduction of the newest cooling measures, developers started to be less intense using their pricing. The most recent upcoming launch by Ki Residences Condo to me is the litmus test of how damaging the most recent round of cooling measures is.
Information regarding the development. Link: Jade Scape is a 99-year leasehold project located along Shunfu Road. . It will likely be designed by Qingjian Realty plus they acquired the site by using an en bloc sale. Jade Scape is going to be built on the site of the former 358-unit Shunfu Ville, a privatised HUDC development. Back in mid-2016, Qingjian Realty acquired the Shunfu Ville en bloc site for $638 million which had been slightly beneath the reserve value of $688 million. It had been then this third largest en bloc deal to date as well as the first en bloc in nearly per year. In that point, the offer made many property analysts sit up and pay attention. This deal placed a spotlight on foreign players’ growing presence in the Singapore housing market. For me, Qingjian Realty kicked off of the latest en bloc fever as well as on hindsight, entered the marketplace in a very opportune moment.
Jadescape will comprise of 1,206 units and will also be launched in 2 phases. The development website is 36,985.70 square metres or 398,114.07 square feet and definately will feature seven towers and definately will house 236 one-bedders, 403 two-bedders, 265 three-bedders, 261 four-bedders, 39 five-bedders and 2 penthouses.
Where is that this development located?
JadeScape is situated about 5 minutes far from Marymount MRT Station. Based on Google Maps, it takes approximately 450 metres to walk towards the exit A of Marymount MRT Station. You might actually cut over the HDB flats to reach the MRT Station therefore the distance from your main gate of JadeScape needs to be slightly shorter. The walk is generally sheltered while you can walk underneath the HDB flats nevertheless the flats are certainly not connected and thus there will still be a risk of obtaining caught inside the rain.
Marymount MRT Station is pretty centrally located. It really is located across the Circle Line and it is one station away from Ki Residences Condo Floor Plan and from there you can change over to the North-South Line. The North-South Line is often heavily congested during peak hours particularly if you are travelling towards town. This really is perhaps why once i made an enquiry on the LTA mobile app, the app appeared to be constantly directing me far from Bishan and instead advised me to create a transfer to the Downtown Line at Botanic Gardens MRT Station instead.
It requires approximately 14 minutes and will also cost $1.29 per trip to access Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station. Marymount MRT Station is additionally well connected to the western elements of Singapore. It will take approximately 22 minutes and price $1.53 to get to Jurong East MRT Station from Marymount MRT Station.
If you are doing work in the Central Business District (CBD), it will take you approximately 18 minutes and price you $1.37 to access Raffles Place MRT Station.
The Circle Line makes it very quick to reach various elements of Singapore because it intersects with other train lines. My only gripe concerning the Circle Line is you will always want to make a move to another train line in case you are going to the CBD.
If you are driving and would like to reach nearby expressways, you may enter in the PIE via Lornie Road or perhaps the CTE via Braddell Road. Both are in regards to a 10-minute drive away. This time around can increase during peak hours as both Lornie Road and Braddel Road are known to get congested during peak hours.
The selling points concerning the development – The primary selling point is the location. JadeScape is situated along Shunfu Road which is close to popular matured areas like Ang Mo Kio and Bishan. This area is definitely a tranquil area to live in and certain units would disregard the landed properties at Thomson Garden Estate. Amenities wise there is a market fepcdl opposite this development at Blk 320 and there is also a Sheng Siong supermarket nearby. JadeScape can also be close to popular food haunts along Upper Thomson Road. Redeveloped developments, the ones that underwent en bloc sales, have the main benefit of already having amenities located around the vicinity.
The quality of this development ought to be good. Qingjian continues to be recognised for high quality developments in recent times. Some may shun Chinese developers but Jadescape Singapore is performing their part to change this mindset. Bellewoods by Qingjian was recognised as the top quality executive condominium in Singapore earlier this coming year.
