My review of JadeScape – Since the development of the most recent cooling measures, developers started to be less intense with their pricing. The most recent upcoming launch by Ki Residences Condo to me is the litmus test of how damaging the most recent round of cooling measures is.

Information about the development. Link: Jade Scape is actually a 99-year leasehold project located along Shunfu Road. . It will be designed by Qingjian Realty and they acquired the site via an en bloc sale. Jade Scape will be built on the site of the former 358-unit Shunfu Ville, a privatised HUDC development. Back in mid-2016, Qingjian Realty acquired the Shunfu Ville en bloc site for $638 million that was slightly beneath the reserve value of $688 million. It was then this third largest en bloc deal to date and also the first en bloc in nearly annually. In that point, the deal made many property analysts sit up and pay attention. This deal placed a spotlight on foreign players’ growing presence within the Singapore housing market. For me, Qingjian Realty kicked from the latest en bloc fever and also on hindsight, entered the current market in a very opportune moment.

Jadescape will comprise of 1,206 units and will be launched in two phases. The development site is 36,985.70 square metres or 398,114.07 square feet and can feature seven towers and can house 236 one-bedders, 403 two-bedders, 265 three-bedders, 261 four-bedders, 39 five-bedders and 2 penthouses.

Where is it development located?

JadeScape is situated about a few minutes far from Marymount MRT Station. In accordance with Google Maps, it takes about 450 metres just to walk to the exit A of Marymount MRT Station. You can actually cut throughout the HDB flats to access the MRT Station and so the distance from the main gate of JadeScape needs to be slightly shorter. The walk is generally sheltered when you can walk under the HDB flats nevertheless the flats usually are not connected and thus there will still be a risk of having caught in the rain.

Marymount MRT Station is rather centrally located. It is actually located along the Circle Line and is one station away from Ki Residences Condo Floor Plan and after that you can change over to the North-South Line. The North-South Line is frequently heavily congested during peak hours particularly if you are travelling towards town. This is perhaps why when I made an enquiry on the LTA mobile app, the app seemed to be constantly directing me away from Bishan and instead advised me to make a transfer onto the Downtown Line at Botanic Gardens MRT Station instead.

It will take approximately 14 minutes and will also cost $1.29 per trip to get to Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station. Marymount MRT Station can also be well attached to the western parts of Singapore. It should take approximately 22 minutes and price $1.53 to get to Jurong East MRT Station from Marymount MRT Station.

Should you be working in the Central Business District (CBD), it will require you approximately 18 minutes and cost you $1.37 to reach Raffles Place MRT Station.

The Circle Line can make it very quick to get to various areas of Singapore since it intersects with all other train lines. My only gripe regarding the Circle Line is that you will usually need to make a move to another train line if you are travelling to the CBD.

Should you be driving and would like to reach nearby expressways, you may enter the PIE via Lornie Road or perhaps the CTE via Braddell Road. Both of them are regarding a 10-minute drive away. This time can increase during peak hours as both Lornie Road and Braddel Road are recognized to get congested during peak hours.

The selling points concerning the development – The key selling point would be the location. JadeScape is located along Shunfu Road which is close to popular matured areas like Ang Mo Kio and Bishan. This region is a very tranquil area to live in and certain units would overlook the landed properties at Thomson Garden Estate. Amenities wise you will find a market fepcdl opposite this development at Blk 320 and there is also a Sheng Siong supermarket nearby. JadeScape is additionally close to popular food haunts along Upper Thomson Road. Redeveloped developments, people who underwent en bloc sales, have the benefit of already having amenities located around the vicinity.

The caliber of this development should be good. Qingjian has been recognised for good quality developments in recent times. Some may shun Chinese developers but Jadescape Singapore is performing their part to change this mindset. Bellewoods by Qingjian was recognised as the top quality executive condominium in Singapore earlier this year.
