Huge crowds flock to Watertown showflat

It’s the second day of the Lunar New Year and while most were out and about visiting friends and relatives, hundreds flocked to the Watertown showflat in Punggol Central.

The S$1.6 billion project has attracted brisk sales since the launch on January 20 and, 483 units out of 596 released have been snapped up.

Buyers made sure they took time off from visiting relatives and friends to check out the showflats.

A lady said: “We’ve done visiting already. So we wanted to do some shopping around for a house. The units have already been sold pretty fast, so we are trying to grab some opportunity and see if we can get some good deals before it gets fully sold.”

A man said: “This Chinese New Year, we had some spare time and I think the Watertown project is exciting. Punggol is an up and coming town to be in. Look at the vibrancy here! It’s a great place to be here on Chinese New Year!”

Another shared similar sentiments: “We took some time off from visiting friends and relatives just to take a look at Watertown because we thought we just come by and look at the showflat, and of course to check out the pricing as well.”

Watertown is the first integrated waterfront development in Singapore.

It is situated directly above Waterway Point that will host popular shops, boutiques and Singapore’s first basement cinema.

The 992-unit development comprises Suites, SOHO apartments, Sky Patios and Residences and the price ranges from S$980 to S$1,500 per square foot.
