Prospective buyers of luxury homes are spoilt for choice with an abundance of places being offered in a new range of locations Singapore's luxury residences have spread their wings to more areas, offering a greater selection of locations for top-end buyers. The Orchard Residences have been placed in the 'super luxury' bracket, meaning the price per square foot could go as high as US$1,980, though developer CapitaLand has yet to fix the amount. Located on the prime Orchard Turn site above the Orchard train station, the 218-metre, 56-storey high-rise is scheduled to start releasing its 98 phase-one units in late 2009. Most are three- and four-bedroom apartments ranging from 1,800 sqft to 2,900 sqft, though seven garden units and penthouses will carry 4,300 sqft to 6,500 sqft. Also going up in the area are the Scotts Square and St. Regis Residences, for which United Overseas Bank has put a valuation cap of US$2,380 per sqft, though speculators say these apartments will realise much more. The Lumos in the Leonie Hill area is expected to start its 53 luxury units at US$2,250, which range from 635 sqft one-bedroom apartments to the 6,000 sqft penthouses that sit atop each tower. All floors also come with their own sky garden. Bukit Timah is cashing in on the recent property boom, with at least six residential projects being launched in the coming year, and wearing price tags of up to US$1,260 per sqft, a price level not seen in the area for 10 years. One is the 536-unit The Cascadia, which is scheduled to open before the end of the year, and is looking at a price range of US$800 to US$860 per sqft, slightly higher than next door neighbour, The Nexus. Keppel Land launched Reflections at Keppel Bay in April, and immediately nailed down US$1,260 per sqft for the waterfront apartments. Designed by architect Daniel Libeskind, the property features six glass towers ranging from 24 to 41-storeys, with unit sizes ranging from 700 sqft to 12,900 sqft. Consisting of three towers of ascending heights, The Trillium by the Lippo Group is also located in District 9 and next to the Great World City. The Trillium offers sky terraces on the 14th storey of each tower, allowing 360-degree views of the city, with prices starting at about US$1,130 per sqft. The 417-unit Soleil@Sinaran is the price leader in the Newton/Novena area, with buyers willing to spend up to US$1,000 per sqft.
