Singapore, January 29, 2007 - All the 273 units of Sky@eleven condominium, the eagerly-awaited freehold luxury development by Singapore Press Holdings Ltd (SPH), were sold out even before the public launch which was scheduled for this weekend.
All the condominium’s top-end four-room apartments and penthouses were snapped up within 30 hours after the soft launch on the evening of Sunday, 28 January.
The overwhelming response to Sky@eleven is not unexpected what with the current bullish property sector, particularly the popular demand for luxury homes in prestigious districts.
Located at Thomson Lane, off Thomson Road, the 43-storey high Sky@eleven is the tallest development in the area. When completed as early as end 2009, it will offer spacious units and great views of the reservoirs and the city skyline. Residents will also enjoy top quality finishes and fittings, luxurious condominium facilities and lush landscaping.
Dr Tony Tan, SPH Chairman, says: “We are extremely happy with the overwhelming response and at the same time very grateful to the buyers for their support for our exclusive development.”
One major selling point of Sky@eleven was its attractive pricing, averaging at $975 psf. The highest price recorded was $1,200 psf.
Buyers who turned up at the showsuites were also drawn to the spaciousness of the units, which range from 1,851 sq ft to 2,820 sq ft.The apartment types include mostly four-bedroom and three bedroom + study.
The condominium is developed by Times Development Pte Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SPH.
Mr Sum Soon Lim, Chairman of Times Development, says: “Sky@eleven truly offers value for money given the luxury lifestyle concepts it offers. It can surely claim to be one of the most beautiful, prestigious and iconic residential property in District 11.”
The appointed marketing agent for Sky@eleven is Knight Frank Pte Ltd (Tel: 8222 1333).
