Prior to the sale of the second-floor unit, a 3,348 sq ft four-bedroom unit was sold for $12.05 million ($3,600 psf) in February.

According to Samuel Eyo, managing director of Singapore Christie’s International Real Estate, the 54-unit freehold luxury condo, which was completed in 2014, is under pressure to reduce prices, as others in the prime districts — notably OUE Twin Peaks and Ardmore Three — have done the same.
Meanwhile, at the luxury waterfront enclave of Sentosa Cove, a 1,216 sq ft, two-bedroom unit on the second floor of one of the towers at The Oceanfront was recently sold for $1.68 million ($1,381 psf), according to a caveat lodged on July 18. The previous owner paid $1.58 million ($1,300 psf) for the unit in a sub-sale in June 2009, at the trough of the Singapore housing market, just before it started to recover.
Prior to that, a 1,711 sq ft, three-bedroom unit on the sixth floor changed hands for $2.9 million ($1,694 psf), according to a caveat lodged on April 12. The unit last changed hands for $3.39 million ($1,979 psf) in June 2011. Thus, the owner saw a loss of $487,780 (14.4%) after holding the property for five years.
