The upcoming condominium in Bishan Central, which will launched early next year, shares something in common with Marina Bay Sands.
The condo will be designed by renowned international architect Moshe Safdie who also designed Marina Bay Sands.
Residents will enjoy a full suite of recreational facilities, including a 50-metre lap pool, leisure pools, children’s pool, play areas, a tennis court, barbeque pits, function rooms, karaoke rooms and a gymnasium.
But property analysts said local buyers are usually more concerned about the price and facilities rather than its design.
They added that local buyers are also more concerned about the credibility of the developer than the designer.
However, residents in the Bishan area are looking forward to seeing its development.
“I’m excited because usually I have to go to Orchard Road to see such condos,” said one resident in Bishan.
“I expect more foreigners to stay here. They will probably come here to shop too,” said another Bishan resident.
