WITH 5 NEW FREEHOLD PROPERTY LAUNCHES AT AMBER ROAD IN DISTRICT 15, IS THIS A GOOD TIME TO INVEST?
Developers are especially bullish about the Amber Road area which is one of the most sought-after precincts in D15 and which will be just next to the upcoming Tanjong Katong and Marine Parade MRT stations of the new Thomson-East Coast Line.
When opened in 2023, the new Thomson-East Coast Line is expected to boost the prices of properties along the East Coast, as residents along this stretch will now be a few MRT stops away from Marina Bay and the CBD. 4 out of the 5 new freehold condo launches in Amber Road are timed to be completed around the same time as the opening of the Thomson-East Coast Line. Expect a double boost to the prices of these launches in 2023.
These 5 freehold launches include AMBER PARK (with the largest plot size among the 5 launches) and AMBER SKYE (ready for immediate occupation), and they all boast a prestigious seaside address, within the heritage Katong district:
As background, the original Amber Park, a 200-unit development, was sold in 2018 via a collective sale to a JV between a CDL subsidiary and Hong Realty, the private real estate arm of Hong Leong Group. The sale price of S$906.7 million reflects a land rate of about S$1,515 per square foot (psf) per plot ratio. Break-even selling price is projected to be about $2,000 to $2,100psf. The new Amber Park will have 592 units spread over 3 towers of 22 storeys each. Most of the units will have sea view or city view (overlooking the low-rise landed properties). Facilities and amenities will be on the ground level (where there will be a large Lagoon Bay to bring the feel of the East Coast to Amber Park) as well as on the Stratosphere terrace on the 22nd floor.

Amber Skye is a new condo that was completed in 2017. The developer is China Sonangol, which also developed the luxury TwentyOne Angullia Park condo next to Orchard MRT. Crafted with a classic Italian architectural design that resembles the sea’s endless waves in motion, this 22-storey freehold residential development has a unique and iconic structure. It is just next-door to the future Tanjong Katong MRT station of the Thomson East Coast Line which will be completed in 2023. In fact, a side gate of Amber Skye will lead directly to the proposed underground entrance of the MRT station. Click here for more details of Amber Skye
