Condos in the Shenton Way, Tanjong Pagar and Spottiswoode Park neighbourhoods have seen a pick-up in transactions, especially in the week of March 5-12.
The most noticeable is at Wallich Residence at Tanjong Pagar Centre where four high-floor units were sold, of which caveats were lodged for three. Two of the transactions were for 614 sq ft, one-bedroom units: the one on the 51st floor fetched $2.38 million ($3,879 psf), and was the highest achieved for a one-bedder; while the other was on the 43rd floor, and went for $2.15 million ($3,504 psf), according to URA Realis. The third unit transacted at Wallich Residence where a caveat was lodged is a 1,098 sq ft, three-bedroom unit that went for $3.53 million ($3,211 psf).

A fourth unit was also sold this month, but no caveat was lodged. It is a 1,313 sq ft, three-bedroom unit which fetched $4.15 million ($3,157 psf).
The buyers were said to comprise a wide spectrum of nationalities: a Singaporean, a permanent resident, an American citizen and a Chinese national. The 181-unit luxury residences span the 39th to 64th storeys – the top 25 floors of Singapore’s tallest tower, which stands 290m tall.
