Where should I live? (single guy working in finance)

Post by Hedgie » Sun, 02 Jul 2006 10:19 am

Can anyone recommend some buildings or districts that I should look into for housing? I will probably be working in the financial district (Raffles or near Boat Quay) and would like to be near my office. I would also like to live in an area that is fun with nightlife and late-night eating places (restaurants, hawker centers). Would also like to be near the MRT.

I am looking for a 1 or 2 bedroom condo that has good swimming pools, good gym, steam room/sauna, maybe squash facilities as well. Large space in the apartment is not particularly important to me, but I would like the building to have good facilities. Are condo pools and gyms usually open 24 hours? And good air conditioning is a must. Washer/Dryer in the apartment would be a great plus but it is not absolutely necessary.

I would like to not spend more than SGD3000-SGD3500 per month. The cheaper the better.

Please list your recommendations. Thank you.

Thank you, are there any buildings you would recommend that fit my criteria? Going through them online I really don't know what is what or where is where. What furnishings are typically included in fully furnished apartments? I suspect sofas, beds, major appliances are included. How about TV and DVD player? Does anyone know how big the main pool at River Place is? Can you do laps in it? Are the pools and gyms in the buildings usually open 24 hours a day? Are they often crowded?

Why not get an apartment at The Riverwalk?

http://sg.pagenation.com/sin/Riverwalk_ ... _1.289.map

A friend of mine rented a partially furnished 3-bedroom apartment there for S$3,000 per month. It's very conveniently located between Boat Quay and Clark Quay, within walking distance to Raffles Place MRT station. The Riverwalk Tandoor Fine Indian Restaurant and other restaurants are situated on the ground floor / basement.
