Then I think alright, if only yourself and you own a car. Cos different ppl have different preferences, but largely a good location is well sought after.
Yeah I mean if me I sure whack the penthouse, own stay I think location is a trade off lo, where got cheap n good location one right? Haha

If I wanna buy good location 5 br penthouse, probably need 6M

How’s the morning traffic towards YCK Road?

I drive but don’t take CTE to avoid ERP

For me I currently stay very very near to the site of Ola and it checks all the boxes for me:

- near in law's who just moved to fernvale (they look after my kid)
- near hospital - I see it as a pro more than a con. You actually dont hear sirens that much, in fact I'd say it's quite rare.
- nearby a new hawker centre that's being built at anchorvale village
- can dispose current BTO 6 months after TOP, save on rental and having to time and nego the move with both buyer and seller if buying resale condo
- I actually like living in this area very much!
- may be my last chance to buy a "discounted condo"

All the other ECs surrounding Ola will hit MOP by the time Ola TOP in 2023 - I wonder if that timing was on purpose, and would it help with resale value of Ola it being the newest on the lot. Buyers may be more attracted to new? And when it hits 10 years, the surrounding ECs will be "oldish" at 15 years. Even Rivercove (900psf) is gonna TOP this year.

I wonder then would buyers compare Ola to Parc Botannia (~1300psf, TOP 2020) given the age of these 2 developments..

The two empty plots nearby have been zoned for schools as well. Maybe Ola will be able to ride on that for capital appreciation too?

Quite bearable to be honest. I find it a better drive than KPE to ECP and TPE to Changi. I've driven all these routes on peak for some time before.

From fernvale to Scotts road around 20-25 mins if I start my journey from fernvale. Dont go YCK - enter expressway from Jalan Kayu / Seletar. YCK either you kena queue cutters or you bo bian cut the queue yourself...

My agency is the appointed agency for Ola EC. Showflat preview starts 15 Feb. If you are keen, do pm me to schedule a vip preview for you when the showflat opens.

Just tell them it is of Spanish theme

You know... developer's attempt at a selling point.

Been to the showflat yesterday, tbh, its trying to promote the spanish theme, which to me is irrelevant.. got ‘gallery’ of the paintings( like those we see in the ads).. games corner for the kids.. Facilities wise, pretty standard, but the entrance part looks pretty nice..

Entrance of showflat doesn't sell.
Spanish theme doesn't attract me.

The telehealth service is interesting, and I feel like it compliments being beside a hospital.

Now the problem comes.... With the virus on-going, and SKGH being like "ground zero" with an isolated patient, will there still be crowds at the showroom?

Then, the other concern is in the longer term... Let's say another epidemic occurs, would you dare to take the LRT that is just beside the hospital, with lots of patients bringing germs and viruses in and out of the hospital to the LRT station?

To me.... I want to study how Ola is going to be sold with the launch date just after the virus outbreak, if it is sold at a high psf. Good lesson on marketing.

Ola should tear down showflat and rebuild near Mrt away from hospital. That way, people won't be reminded of Wuhan Virus.
