SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The sales gallery of The Watergardens at Canberra will reopen for preview on Aug 14. This follows the government’s announcement on Aug 6 that Singapore will be opening up its economy from Aug 10, with a two-phased easing from its Phase Two (Heightened Alert) state.

The Watergardens at Canberra is a joint-venture (JV) project between UOL, Singapore Land and Kheng Leong Co. The JV was awarded the government land sale site in March last year after submitting the top bid of $270.2 million ($650 psf per plot ratio).

The 296,722 sq ft, 99-year leasehold site is located on Canberra Drive, in the neighbourhood of the private landed housing enclave of Sembawang Springs Estate as well as opposite newly completed HDB flats. It is also close to the Canberra MRT Station on the North-South Line that opened in November 2019. (See: Find HDB flats for rent or sale with our Singapore HDB directory)
The design of The Watergardens at Canberra is inspired by nature, given its proximity to park connectors and green spaces. Water features circle the condo.
The new development has 16 five-storey blocks. The developer is offering a mix of two- to four-bedroom unit types, with larger-sized premium options available for two- and three-bedroom units.

Larger-sized units are being offered as the expected demand for new private residential developments in the area is likely to come from upgraders of the nearby HDB estates, as well as couples and multi-generational families.
Prices will start from about $1,382 psf. “We believe The Watergardens at Canberra will be the most affordable new launch in 2021 that is at the doorstep of an MRT station,” says Jesline Goh, UOL chief investment and asset officer. (See also: Discover all Singapore new launch condos in 2021)

UOL’s Goh expects robust demand for the new project, because “it will be the first private development to be launched in the area following the opening of Canberra MRT Station in November 2019”.
Canberra is a region with strong growth potential, adds Goh. She sees the new project attracting both home buyers and investors alike. The Watergardens at Canberra is expected to be completed in 2Q2026.
