Haha no leh… unless count workplace :ROFLMAO:

Been quite intrigued with this district in recent months…

This area has quite a few construction going on. :o Anyone's guess whether these redevelopments will bring up value in the area :o Or maybe it will just remain as a "ghost town" :o

I think Marina Bay is best spot in entire GSW. Above got CBD, left side got Keppel new land, right side got beautiful garden, below got sea. What else to ask for?

As long workplace not one of the surrounding blocks and don't let boss see you sleeping on the bed can already :LOL:

I suspect a lot of people like living near the CBD but not IN the CBD, especially families with kids.

I'm not sure why too. The first time I learn about Marina Bay is through my workplace. When I step into one of the towers, took the lift up and greeted by the sea view..... I knew this IS the place already haha. Sea view / sea front has been a requirement on my own stay list ever since. It's not something you get tired of even after whole day of staring at it at work.

As for why I didn't consider it back then (when I was in my 20s)... I didn't even shortlist it at first as I thought only the crazy rich will be able to afford. Fast forward to today (10 years later), I still have peers who only look at OCR cuz that's what they thought they could afford too (in turn pushing OCR price up even further).

One more perspective abt this, they buy OCR cos psf lower they can buy a bigger unit there compared to CCR so for comfort they bought there. Another reason is they grew up in that area or locality.

have one more idea for poll, a 3bedder OCR, 2bedder RCR and 1bedder CCR which would u choose.

Depends on your life stage isn’t it? :o Whether you are a bachelor starting with five-figure pay, or typical BTO couple who endured 5-10 years out of MOP and ready to have third kid? :o

Yes that’s a consideration too, but nowadays I see bachelors also getting a 2bedder for space and also future forward planning. 1 bedder more for rental purpose.

Make sense, the new condos are small nowadays and 2BRs are easily affordable :o

(as compared to the larger resales ~$2.5m)

Pasir Ris also got sea view units and they get to enjoy heartland amenities. Same goes to the East Coast stretch.

But like the others mentioned, each has his/her own luck and preferences sway according to that. 70+% Singaporeans stay in HDBs congregated intensively in the NE, E and slightly less in NW and N. HDB upgraders statistically will come predominantly from these regions, so its important to understand their priorities.

I also hope one day I can afford the future Residential with Commercial plots that are overlooking MBS and GBTB at NW and MSP at SE. But I think I’ll have to chop off 2 arms for it. :(

Not a fan of heartland.. and I guess location matters too.

East Coast is ideal too, would probably have gotten it if I didn't get my first choice.
