SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - A one-bedroom apartment at The Trilinq has been put on the market for sale via private treaty for $860,000, or $1,599 psf. The 538 sq ft unit on the eight floor faces the swimming pool, is breezy and receives a lot of natural light. It is an owner’s sale.
“The unit is well-kept and in move-in condition as it only recently achieved TOP [temporary occupation permit] in 2017,” says Joy Tan, head of auctions and sales at Edmund Tie.
The unit has an existing tenant until September 2021, and therefore will be sold with tenancy in place. It will appeal to investors and also owner-occupiers as the tenancy allows for early termination should the buyer wish to move in, adds Tan.

The existing owner of the unit had purchased it for $895,000 ($1,663 psf) in April 2013, when the 755-unit private condo was first launched by Malaysian developer IOI Properties. The project, which has three 36-storey residential towers, is located on Jalan Lempeng, just off Clementi Avenue 6, and adjacent to a top school, Nan Hua Primary School. It is also within 1km of other schools such as Clementi Primary School, Pei Tong Primary School and Qifa Primary School.
Hence, the project appeals to families with children of school-going ages. It is also near Nan Hua Secondary School, National University of Singapore (NUS), NUS High School and Singapore Polytechnic.
Besides families or students attending NUS, other potential tenants or buyers include those working at National University of Hospital (NUH), Alexandra Hospital, Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, and the future commercial hub at Jurong Gateway in Jurong Lake District.
Within a 10-minute walk or three-minute drive away is Clementi Mall, which is connected to the MRT station and bus interchange.
