76 Shenton (3200 SGD, 1BR, a friend of mine just got in) or Altez (nearby, 1BR loft, just moved in, price a bit higher, but in/at your budget). These are very close to mrt and the are Duxton (lots of life)..not far from Club Street. I work not far from were you'll be (Asia Square towers), 15 mins walk every morning is perfect to get up :)

Not sure what your question is. Are you asking about the two specific properties? Or if you neighborhood itself is good? Most will have no opinion on property vs property, especially since you're vague on the second place's price. You'll also find most people would not recommend living in that area as most of CBD shuts down on the weekends. The busy areas are mostly touristy.

I think OP has already made up his mind to stay at MBFC or thereabouts, started the thread to confirm his theory.
Hey! What do we expats know anyway right?
To get there early is on time and showing up on time is late

Not a question, was just giving OP some alternatives.
