Condos with the Biggest Bang for Your Buck

You are now ready to upgrade to a new condo. Although facilities and amenities are important considerations, sizable living space is something you have gotten used to which you are not willing to compromise. After all, buying a condo is not really an ‘upgrade’ if you have to downsize.
In Singapore where buildings get taller and living spaces get smaller, it is not always easy to find a condo which meets your budget and size requirements. This is why we’ve decided to identify some of the largest units offered by developers for the different price points. In compiling the list, we look at new condos which will give you the biggest bang for your buck, quite literally.
(Methodology: We looked through an extensive list of newly-completed or under construction properties that are still being marketed by developers. Wherever possible, we verified with agents/developers to ensure that these properties are still available at the time of publishing. The properties are available within +/- $100k to the indicated budget)
$1 million budget
A one-million dollar budget or thereabout will get you a one-bedder in the city or a two-bedder in the city fringe.
The largest unit available within this price range is a 549 sq ft one-bedroom unit at Pollen & Bleu, a 99-year leasehold condo on Farrer Drive in prime District 10. It is currently under construction and is expected to be completed by 2018.
For a larger unit with the same budget, hop over to The Venue Residences at Potong Pasir for a two-bedder patio measuring 861 sq ft. The Venue Residences is a mixed retail and residential development by CDL. The project offers 266 residential units and 28 retail shops and restaurants on the ground floor. This project is also under construction and is expected to be completed next year.
