Opinion on City Sq residences?

Post by Deo » Fri, 24 Dec 2010 5:37 pm

Hi,

When I get the chance I will visit the place. In the meanwhile, just wondering if anyone could enlighten me regarding noise level at night time in this condo? (As it is very close to the hustle and bustle of Mustafa, I can only imagine that it will be very noisy??)

Thanks,

I would rather live elsewhere, may be in one of the condos on yio chu kang road (seasons park, calrose, castlegreen etc). This location is much more peaceful and green then the chaos on Serangoon Road.

Depends - the traffic noise is what bugs me, but if I close my windows and put on a fan / a/c then no problems. The place is pretty clear from about midnight.

Hey Deo,

Saturday and sunday are alway PACKED in that area. Tons of people, everywhere in the streets. So if you are staying away from your place during the WE, and doing stuff somewhere else, then it's all good. But if you want to enjoy and chill in the neighboorhood - forget about it.

I visited City SQ and the things I don't like about it:
- mainly students staying there, sharing apts, so not very family friendly
- the place is HUGE, so when you're there it feels a bit like a factory with a huge pool in the middle

Positive things:
- shopping mall and Mustafa center nearby : there isn't a thing you'd need that you can't find there
- very close to town, to Bugis and to main expressways if you drive
- very close to all eateries you'd want

So if the location is essential, then you'll get used to the busy WEs I guess. otherwise, you should look somewhere else.

My suggestion is to go visit, or just walk around the condo on a saturday evening or Sunday afternoon - you'll see what I mean :)

I think I saw the buildings from City Square Mall once and thought to myself, "what a great pool." :)

On the plus side you are close to Farrer Park MRT and City Square Mall is one of the least crowded malls I've been to. Personally I think the "purple line" is the best one to live close to.

Having said that, the area around that place doesn't seem like the most idyllic place to live in.
