Finding a dream home is almost always a journey fraught with obstacles every now and then. There are so many factors involve; living environment, accessibility, amenity, price etc. But all that seems to disappear at Riverfront Residences. It is a new condo launch in Singapore that is situated along Hougang Avenue 7. It is developed by a consortium led by Oxley Holdings, and comprises of Lian Beng Group, Apricot Capital and KSH Holdings. These renowned developers have long established themselves as the big brothers of the industry and have amassed a huge portfolio of property developments under their belt.
Oxley Holdings and its partners made an acquisition of this site in May 2017 through a collective sale. This site used to be a privatised HUDC estate, named Rio Casa, and is situated at 344 Hougang Avenue 7. Rio Casa has a massive land size of 396,234 sqft, which is quite uncommon in Singapore, and coupled with a plot ratio of 2.8, Riverfront Residences can yield a total gross floor area (GFA) of 1,109,454 sqft, and this is a behemoth development that is quite rare. The developers paid a staggering $575 million to the previous home owners and topped up another $208 million to restore the lease of the land back to 99 years. The total price of the whole collective sale adds up to $783 million, thereby making the price of the purchase to be at an estimated $706 psf ppr (per square foot per plot ratio), and it is considered as one of the cheapest collective sale in the market, due to the fact that the developers took the risk of going into the collective sale cycle early when no one dares to do it. The cheapest one bedroom unit at Riverfront Residences was sold at $578,000, which is almost unheard of in the current market, where most one bedroom unit is selling above $600,000, and this made it one of the cheapest and most affordable project in the town now, having a huge potential for capital appreciation in the future.
Riverfront Residences condo is nestled in the matured estate of Hougang where it is close to a bus interchange situated right beside Hougang MRT, and it is about 10 minutes walk away. If the residents chose not to walk, a free shuttle bus will bring them to the MRT station.
