Completed in 2008, the 546-unit freehold condominium is located on Amber Road in prime District 15. When it was first launched in mid-2005, it was the first private condominium by the former Wheelock Properties (renamed Wharf Estates (Singapore) in 2020) that is located outside prime Districts 9, 10 and 11, which was traditionally it’s playing field.
District 15 in the East Coast is considered the next most prestigious neighbourhood outside the traditional prime Districts 9, 10 and 11. East Coast Park is within a short walk or bike ride from The Sea View, and shopping malls in the vicinity include Parkway Parade and I12 Katong. The upcoming Marine Parade MRT Station on the Thomson- East Coast Line is located nearby. The development is located within a 10- to 15-minute drive of the CBD and Changi Airport.
