SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The sale of a one-bedroom unit at One Pearl Bank achieved the highest psf price among all condominiums that registered new price highs from Aug 16 to 21.
The 99-year leasehold unit on the 37th floor measures 560 sq ft. It was sold by developer CapitaLand on Aug 21 for $1.66 million, or $2,973 psf. This beats the previous high set in July when another 560 sq ft unit sold for about $7,800 less, which works out to $2,959 psf.

Slated for completion in 2023, One Pearl Bank is a five-minute walk via a sheltered walkway to Outram Park MRT Station, which is an interchange for the East-West and North-East Lines.
