The number of high-rise buildings in Singapore has risen fairly quickly over the last few years. Within our scarce land areas, condominiums make a sound choice for urbanites. Practical, convenient and luxurious, condominiums have been hailed as the epitome of modern day living. Here’s why:
Most condominiums are strategically located in highly urbanised areas. Those wishing to reside in Paya Lebar, for example, get the best of both worlds: the relaxed lifestyle of the east and the bustling experience of the city. This prime location offers excellent accessibility to the CBD, prestigious schools, recreational centres, hospitals and other amenities. Convenience? Check.
Better Safety and Security
Most condominiums are armed with surveillance cameras, gated facilities, and security professionals to ensure the safety of both the tenants, guests and the building. Even if there’s no real threat in the area, it never hurts to have people to turn to for help in an emergency.
If location and safety don’t pass as real concerns for you, perhaps its majestic view is enough to spur interest. Most condos provide sights of flickering city lights and relaxing greenery of nature parks. If you’re inspired by gazing out over the city skyline, nothing beats the well-appointed repose of your own condo.
Proximity to Public Transport
Developments located near major public transport hubs typically command higher demand. The easy access to public transport and major expressways offer a convenient way to travel across Singapore with relative ease. They provide seamless connectivity, for both commuters and car owners.
Premier Facilities at a Fraction of the Cost
Most condos also come with a wide range of facilities, including gyms, swimming pools, BBQ pits or even function rooms for residents’ use. For the array of services and value it provides, it’s easy to understand why many choose to buy a condo over owning a landed property.
Even with the lack of actual land space, the convenience, ease and comfort found in condo living makes it an attractive housing option. There is splendour, and there is practicality– and somewhere in between, there’s condo living.
