The Opus – Singapore Condo
The Opus Singapore is the newest condo located at Amber Gardens, along Amber Road. This new condo development belongs to City Developments Limited and Hong Leong Group. It is styled and built in shape to the different household specifications. Sitting on more than 200,000sqft of land size, it will be an eye-catching building structure along amber vicinity. Amber road is a well-known region in the east and in close-proximity to many amenities including the east coast park!
The floor plan on the opus condo reflects the flexibility
Developer will be providing a wide range of layout configurations between one to five-bedroom unit types including penthouse across the four majestic towers. Almost all the units will command a premium, due to the near perfect orientation of the development in allowing almost all residents to have a beautiful and panoramic view of the big blue sea towards the east coast beach.
It will be standing on a 25-storey high building that they have already planned for (before they entered the winning bid with Hong Leong Group) based on the existing plot ratio that cannot be changed by anyone so easily as it is under the purview of the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA).
CDL and Hong Realty (Private Investment Arm of Hong Leong Group) will also be engaging a top architect firm from Singapore to work with on this new condo development in Amber Gardens. Formerly Amber Park, and coincidentally, City Developments was the first developer in building Amber Park in 1986. They were so happy right after winning the hotly contested tender as they are finally reunited with Amber Park and to be able to rebuild another top-quality work again on the very same plot of land since more than 30 years ago.
So, if you are planning to purchase The Opus Condo Singapore, it is a no-brainer as both developers will treat this as a baby of their own. They are also well known for building top quality homes around the region based on previous impressive track records. Not only that, each and every unit that they painstakingly build does not come with a premium price tag. Unlike other developers if given a chance as the land parcel of the opus is really in a spectacular fashion way.

By having such a convenient location, it scores highly on the To-Buy chart list. Apart from the transporting issue, you will be equally glad to learn that Katong is also home to many eateries and shopping malls such as Parkway Parade and I12 Shopping Mall.
Lastly, as a parent of young children, there won’t be a shortage of premium schools around as some of the best academic institutions is in your neighbourhood.
FOREIGN BUYERS RETURNING?
Singapore – Foreign demand is likely to flow back to the Singapore private housing property scene in this blockbuster year 2018 and beyond, Bank of Singapore (a Singapore-based private banking arm of OCBC) maintains. It is backed by the prospects of a recent price point recovery and better rental atmosphere in the local market, along with the fact that private housing premiums have fallen to an almost dessert spot after 4 whole years of declining. Therefore, our local marketplace appears to be of a more affordable prized asset in comparison to other metropolitan cities.
According to Mr Lee in a written statement on last Friday, that the current bull rage reflecting in the market has so far been largely driven by domestic purchasers. But savvy international investors will soon return and push the upside into higher gear, especially in our new residential development segment. Based on figures from URA, there have been no more than 1,600 deals by foreign friends in 2017, significantly lesser than the 2,200 on average each year, and the high average of 3,600 each year during the previous bullish market from 2010 to 2013.
Most of them were probably kept a distance by the additional buyer stamp duty for foreigners, only a mere 5.6% deals in 2017 were made by the foreign community. A drastic drop from the 8.7% in an 18-year average. The Singapore property market has since bottomed out after falling by 12% from the peak seen in 2013. Simultaneously, domestic income has improved together with an increase of positiveness in the overall market sentiment.
This is opposed to other major cities such as Hong Kong, London, San Francisco, Sydney and Tokyo, where asset affordability has appeared to worsen over the same period. Hence, Singapore real estate will be more appealing with the possible potential upsides.
Pertaining to the leasing environment, it will recover progressively from now due to a sharp drop of new project launches in recent years as they usually require 3 to 4 years to construct. Leasing rates began falling due to the oversupply since 2013 and exceeded the household formation, resulting in the increase of vacancy but due to the declining new projects seen in the past few years, the number of dwellings will go below the projected figures gauge by the state. Thus, vacancy rate will drop and a rebound in leasing will kick in.
Morgan Stanley, along with other analysts have suggested our local prices to rally by up to 10% this year while being lifted by a recovery in leasing market. It has already been seen in the existing en-bloc scene from 2017, with developers going all out in snapping lands before the price increases going forward.
Due to the onslaught by global environment and the government measures everywhere, demand and prices have fallen to the extent of only a 62% premium over mass market in the high-end residential segment, a 10-year low. It will begin to be the centre of attraction when foreign interest come flowing in the coming months ahead.
At the same time while writing, City Developments (CDL) have reportedly sold 18 luxurious units from New Futura, out of the 25 release units on its first day of private sale over the weekend, with less than a-third of them from local home buyers and most of the high-net-worth individual buyers came from the wealthy Chinese and Indonesians.
With such an increase on the foreign versus local buying ratio as seen, following up new condo developments in the same prime orchard vicinity such as 3 Cuscaden along Cuscaden walk will be in the spotlight. It is a very well positioned private residential projects situated diagonally across Wheelock Place and will certainly be of interest to a wide audience when it is release for sale in the next few months.
Apart from this development, there is another strong contender where they are almost completely built and ready for move-in condition. 8 Saint Thomas, they too are located within the same orchard neighbourhood, sitting along River Valley.
If you’ve been house hunting in the orchard area, these few condo developments will be the next up and coming beautiful sites to look out for.
Developers replenishing land banks after pent-up demand in en-bloc transaction
Approximately 2,700 private residence have been sold in 2017 via en bloc deals to date (6 Nov).
It was only around 600 dwellings in 2016 and attributed by builders replenishing their land banks due to the extremely successful real estate sales the year before.
Previous State housing project Normanton Park was sold for $830.1 million in October 2017, the best showing land rate for a collective sale site based on 99 years leasehold. Freehold Amber Park residence was sold for $906.7 million, setting a record for Singapore’s largest collective sale in monetary values while a former HUDC property, Tampines Court fetches the biggest deal in August for $970 million.
Promising sales increase of new launches by developers have brought the total unsold supply to about 17,200 units as of today, down from the previous 40,000 unsold supplies in 2012.
Many of the owner’s main motivation in initiating en bloc sales to monetise their ageing residential assets were due to the strong sales seen in 2016 and early 2017. However, will the current en bloc fever be sustainable? Higher than valuation bids coming from developers will not necessary mean higher prices down the journey because they have to sell their housing units within 5 years from awarding of each particular land site, therefore pricing them reasonably for future buyers will definitely lift some pressure off them and not forgetting, they are subject to ABSD (Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty) too!
Will there be a need to increase the land sales in meeting all developers demand?
The State will continue to monitor the overall developments closely since all en bloc sale sites sold since 2016 will eventually be redeveloped and made available in the market for the next few years.
Quantum of Government Land Sales (GLS Programme) will also be decided by other factors such as the population growth and market conditions going forward in-order to maintain a well-balanced property market.
