Went down to The Florence Residences showflat last week to see the latest upcoming development developed by Logan Property in Hougang. This was originally a HUDC site that was being en bloc. I can still remember visiting one of the units during my search for a resales HDB during 2007/2008. The cost price of a unit then was around S$800K. If only I have bought it then, would have become an instant en bloc millionaire last year….whaha.
However, I nearly fainted when the property agent told me that the developer target to launch this at an average of S$1,450psf. So, a 2 bedder (635sqft) starts from around S$863K, 3 bedder (893sqft) at around SS1.222Mil, 4 bedders (1,281sqft) at approximately $1.675Mil and 5 Bedder (1,668sqft) at S$2.41Mil. I am still shocked at the launch price of units in suburbia areas these days. With S$1,450 psf, one may consider getting a unit at Kovan Residence (right on top of Kovan MRT station) if one does not mind a resales unit. If compare to the upcoming CDL and Capitaland Sengkang Centre Residences at Buangkok which is projected to launch at S$1,650psf to S$1,700psf, Florence Residences thus appeared to be cheaper. Will you buy a unit at The Florence Residences?
