Oceanfront@Sentosa Cove. Activity has picked up at Sentosa Cove as market confidence returns.

t’s not just new launches that have seen strong sales. The secondary market has also been equally buoyant, with sub-sale and resale activity returning, especially for projects that have recently received their Temporary Occupation Permits (TOPs) or are likely to do so in the coming months. For instance, at Sentosa Cove, there were two transactions at the 249-unit luxury condominium The Coast, which received its TOP just recently. One was a 2,896 sq ft unit that changed hands in a sub-sale for $4.5 million, or $1,554 psf, while the other was a 4,047 sq ft penthouse that went for over $4.8 million, or $1,195 psf, according to URA Realis caveats lodged at end-April (see table). The two units were purchased at the time of the launch of The Coast in December 2006. The owner of the 2,896 sq ft apartment paid $5.11 million, or $1,766 psf, for the unit then, while the penthouse owner had paid $5.63 million, or $1,392 psf. Over at The Oceanfront@Sentosa Cove, a unit changed hands for a second time in the sub-sale market. This is a landmark development and one of only two high-rise condominium projects allowed at Sentosa Cove. It has five 12- to 15-storey towers, unlike most condominiums at Sentosa Cove, which are restricted to six storeys. The 264-unit luxury condominium project is expected to be completed sometime in mid-2010.

The third-floor 1,711 sq ft apartment was sold for close to $2.14 million, or $1,250 psf, according to a caveat lodged on April 24. The last time it changed hands was in early 2007, with a caveat lodged in February for $2.52 million, or $1,475 psf. The original buyer had purchased the unit from the developer in July 2006 for $2.1 million, or $1,227 psf, when the project was first launched. The owner of a 1,658 sq ft fourth-floor apartment at The Berth by the Cove sold the unit for $2.06 million, or $1,243 psf, in the resale market — a price still higher than his purchase price. The unit was bought in October 2006 for close to $1.49 million, or $897 psf, when the 200-unit project was first completed. The Berth by the Cove was the first condominium project to be launched at Sentosa Cove, and hence the first to be completed in the waterfront residential resort. In the city fringes, the 273-unit Southbank, along North Bridge Road, is expected to be completed sometime in 2010. There were four caveats lodged for sub-sales of units in the development from April 20 to 30. The development is located along the banks of the Kallang River and is near the Lavender MRT station. The four units that were sold were at prices above the owners’ original purchase prices, albeit to varying degrees. For instance, a 614 sq ft, 31st storey apartment that changed hands for $626,280, or $1,021 psf, was first

purchased in July 2006 when the project was launched for just $447,000, or $729 psf. Another small unit of 592 sq ft on the 37th floor was sold for $605,000, or $1,022 psf, in a sub-sale. The original buyer had paid $460,000, or $777 psf, for the unit back in August 2006. Meanwhile, a 958 sq ft apartment on the 24th floor was sold for $814,300, or $850 psf,min a sub-sale recently. It was purchased in a sub-sale in May 2007 for $800,000, or $835 psf, according to caveats lodged with URA Realis. The original owner who bought the unit during the launch in early August E 2006 had paid $660,000, or $689 psf.
