“Many of the buyers also went for higher floor units for the spectacular views of the sea, the city or the landed housing area,” says Dora Chng, GuocoLand Singapore general manager (residential). Many of the buyers were buying for their own use, with the majority (90%) said to be local residents.

Dominic Lee, head of luxury team at PropNex, one of the joint marketing agencies for Meyer Mansion, considers it “the top-selling-project this weekend”.
The attraction of Meyer Mansion is its freehold tenure, its prestigious Meyer Road address, the “exceptional views” and a land area large enough to provide a “lush, beautiful garden setting”, adds GuocoLand’s Chng.
Meanwhile, TA Corporation announced in a press release on behalf of consortium FSKH Development,, that 20% of 90 units released at The Antares has been taken up. That translates to 18 units sold over the weekend. Average price achieved is said to be $1,760 psf. The 265-unit residential development will have a covered linkway to the nearby Mattar MRT station on the Downtown Line.
