Condos in lively areas

Post by permafrost1 » Wed, 15 Mar 2006 8:25 pm


I’ve been in Singapore for a week and I’m totally lost as to where to live… My company – which is based in Tanjong Pagar – has paid for an agent to take me around but I must admit I am a bit depressed with what I have seen so far…

I’m looking for a condo which is not in a boring, quiet residential area and so far that’s all I’ve seen!

I’m a single 28 year old French/British girl, have spent some time in Basel (Switzerland) and London (Richmond) so I’m used to living in small apartments. I'm on a 1-year contract and am open to signing a 1-year lease. My budget is around SG 2000 – 2300 for a furnished apartment.

My criteria:
- must be close to MRT station (ideally East-West line)
- needs to be in a lively area with cafes, supermarket, restaurants and if possible girlie shops (e.g. clothes, decoration…) and cinema just by my door.

Nice to have:
- lap swimming pool
Not bothered about tennis courts etc…

Areas which I have seen so far and which I like include: Club Street, Orchard Road.
As you can see, haven’t seen much…

Any advice would be more than welcome.

Have a peek around Holland Village and also to a certain extent, the Eastside.

You may not be able to have it all but I reckon you could get most of what you want.
