6 Award-winning Residential Developments with Great Location in Singapore
If you’re looking for a new residence, you need to beyond the house’s appearance and swanky fittings; you should also consider its location. The house’s condition and its furnishings may change, but where it is located won’t.
That said, the perfect location is often different for different people. Those with children may prefer to live in a family-friendly neighbourhood, while young professionals may choose to live near the central business district. It’s essential to choose a home that will make it convenient for you to do the things that are part of your everyday life.
Whether you’re looking for a residence that’s near workplaces, schools, shopping malls, or a public park, you’ll find one in many of Singapore’s up-and-coming residential developments like these properties honoured at the recent PropertyGuru Asia Property Awards (Singapore).
