Will You Buy Straits Mansions or Forest Woods?

Coming soon in the property market, presents 2 new launches that is the Straits Mansions and Forest Woods that capture my attentions:

Let’s gossip about Straits Mansions:

straits-mansionsThis 25 units development at location Marine Parade is a freehold project by Roxy pacific, a prestigious developer who has developed well-received condos like Eon Shenton and Spottiswoode. Talking about the location, it is only approx to 150m to Marine Parade MRT that will take less than 5 min walk for a normal pace. Since it is a boutique project, it provides a serene environment to live in with minimal disturbances! Parents will love this development since it is near to renowned Tao Nan School as it  is within 1km. Also within 1km are Haig’s Girls’ School, CHIJ Katong Girls’ School and Tanjong Katong Primary School.


On the other side of the coin, small project though provides a quiet environment but from what i heard from the agents, the resell pace will be slower than the general project that has more than 200 units. Also not forgetting the maintenance fees since there are lesser owners sharing the fees, the fees will be higher than the general project.

Weigh your pros and cons, if you value privacy more than anything else, then go for this small project, you can click to the developer sales website Straits Mansions.

For me, i only like big project where landscaping will be more impressive.

Let’s brat about Forest Woods Now:

Disclaim: I live quite near this project, so i have bias view on Forest Woods. The name is a little disappointed as if we are staying in a Forest. (Am i a Tarzan?)

This 99 years leasehold project can fetch around or more than 500 units around 12-13 storey tall, developed by CDL, another good developer in Singapore for sure. They developed Gramercy park and thus definitely have the experience to build great residences for us! Did i say us? You know i will be keen in this Forest Woods.

Forest Woods is located at Lorong Lew Lian, Upper Serangoon Road, 5 mins walk to Serangoon MRT Station. The nearby shopping centres included the famous overcrowded NEX shopping mall and good nearby schools like Paya Lebar Methodist Primary and Secondary Girls School, Zhong Hua.

The unknown reasons why i choose this condo are because there are many memories for me a Hougang and Serangoon areas, like the famous eateries, you can read up more at http://www.ladyironchef.com/2015/08/singapore-serangoon-kovan-cafes and of course the childhood friends when we play marbles and catching.

There are so many developer websites on Google now and most likely they are the agents websites, anyway click here to get more information about Forest Woods. Will be going for the vvip balloting for sure.
