A stylish cluster of units in new condominium project, PALM ISLES, will offer homeowners the option of having their own spacious private parking lots, accessed via an exclusive entrance and driveway, akin to that of a landed home.
“Garden Homes” is a new innovative lifestyle concept offered by Frasers Centrepoint Homes in the upcoming launch of PALM ISLES condominium, located at Flora Drive. There will be 28 of such deluxe units, each designed with the feel of a landed property, complete with private gardens or terraces and carpark spaces large enough to fit two to three cars.
All Garden Homes will have generous balconies overlooking gardens, hence the name. The sloped terrain has given rise to this feature, and there is also a choice of a Jacuzzi or BBQ facility on the roof terrace.
PALM ISLES will have a total of 429 residential units and one convenience store, spread across a mix of 5-to 7-storey homes, all with a resort-style ambience, complete with lush landscaping, and condominium facilities which include two tennis courts, and a 50-metre-lap pool.
Besides the Garden Homes, the developer is also offering Suites & Condo-style units. The Suites consist of three blocks of one and two-bedroom apartments and these are sited on an elevated terrace overlooking the rest of the property. Unit sizes range from 516 to 560 square feet.
For the Condo Homes, which are designed with the family in mind, there is a mix of 2, 3 and 4-bedroom apartments ranging from 785 to 1,323 sq ft. Within direct access of these homes will be the Palm Court, which is a perfect spot for unwinding, and a palm-lined sandy Wave Pool for families to have fun in.
Frasers Centrepoint said the concepts came about as a result of the development’s sloped terrain.
“Initially, the terrain posed a challenge. However, we capitalised on it and that resulted in an innovative design that comprised a mix of housing styles to cater to different needs and budgets,” explained Cheang Kok Kheong, Chief Executive Officer of Frasers Centrepoint Homes.
Pricing for the 1-bedroom will start from S$460,000 for a 506-sq-ft one-bedroom (or S$909 psf), 786-sq-ft 2-bedroom from S$660,000 (or S$839 psf), and the 990-sq-ft 3-bedroom from S$760,000 (or S$767 psf). A 3,014-sq-ft Garden Home will be priced from S$2.2 million (or S$730 psf).
PALM ISLES homeowners will be spoilt for choice with the numerous recreational and shopping enclaves located within the vicinity. Beach-lovers will find Pasir Ris Park and East Coast Park just a short drive away; shopping and dining options abound at the new Changi City Point shopping mall right next to the Singapore Expo, and the new SUTD (Singapore Technology and Design University) will take up permanent residency at its Changi premises by next year.
“With the East developing into a key business and educational hub, we are expecting good rental yields and strong interest in this area. More importantly, access to the estate will be further enhanced with the construction of a new road which links the development directly to the main Upper Changi North Road,” added Cheang.
PALM ISLES is available for a preview with showflat located at the end of Flora Drive.
