SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The sale of a 1,410 sq ft, two-bedroom penthouse unit at Robinson Suites on May 18 has set a new psf price low in the development after the unit was sold for $3 million ($2,128 psf).
Based on URA caveats, the previous psf price low at Robinson Suites involved the sale of a 1,346 sq ft, two-bedroom penthouse unit that changed hands for $3 million ($2,230 psf) in July 2018.
Robinson Suites features one- and two-bedroom units ranging from 484 sq ft to 990 sq ft. There are also six penthouse units ranging from 1,087 sq ft to 1,410 sq ft.

In particular, at least four MRT stations are close to the development: Raffles Place Interchange on the North-South and East West Lines, Tanjong Pagar on the East-West Line, and Telok Ayer and Downtown stations on the Downtown Line. The upcoming Shenton Way station on the Thomson-East Coast Line is also nearby.
At the top of the table, Fyve Derbyshire in Novena has set a new psf price high just two weeks after the sale of a developer unit crossed the $2,600 psf threshold for the first time since its launch in January 2019.

"Buying momentum and pricing is picking up in the Novena area and we can feel that buyers find value in the area, (they also expect) prices of most suburban new launches might cross $2,000 psf soon," says Teo Hong Lim, executive chairman of Roxy-Pacific Holdings.
Another upcoming project that recorded a new price high was The Landmark on Chin Swee Road.
