J'den, Newport Residences, Watten Estate Residences, and More: 29 New Condos and ECs Launching in 2023
According to the PropertyGuru Singapore Property Market Report Q3 2023, $2,000 is likely the new starting median price per sq ft (PSF) norm for Q3 2023 major new condo launches.
And on the heels of the April 2023 property cooling measures, which raised Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD) rates, "buyers are becoming more judicious in their decisions. It’s likely they would channel their financial resources to only one property for own-stay purposes," said Dr Tan Tee Khoon, Country Manager – Singapore, PropertyGuru.
That said, buyers seem to be turning out for major new condo launches that are near MRT stations, lifestyle amenities, and choice schools. So even with rising new condo launch prices, buyers may still be willing to bite the bullet on developments that hit all their criteria for a home.

On 6 August 2023, JCube, one of the series of iconic shopping centres near Jurong East MRT station – the others being JEM, Westgate, and IMM – closed for good. While many residents staying in the west of Singapore mourned the loss of the shopping centre, which had been built in 2012, others anticipated the major new condo launch that would take over the land it had sat on.
JCube’s developer, CapitalLand Development, has announced that it would be launching J’den, a 99-year leasehold mixed-use condominium that is 40 storeys high and features commercial space on its first two storeys, in H2 2023, on the same site JCube occupied. Slated to receive its TOP in 2027, residents of J’den can expect to be part of the upcoming Jurong Lake District (JLD), benefit from the Jurong Region Line (JRL), and other redevelopment plans in the west side of Singapore.

Buying a Condo: Will Condo Prices Rise in 2023?

The PropertyGuru Sale Price Index for non-landed private residential properties increased by 0.3% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) in Q2 2023, compared to the 0.9% QoQ increase in Q1 2023. This suggests that prices are finally reaching a peak and may stabilise in the near future.
On the supply side, the latest Government Land Sales (GLS) programme list was announced on 21 June 2023, when the URA announced the 17 sites it would put up for tender soon. Dr Lee Nai Jia, Head of Real Estate Intelligence, Data and Software Solutions, PropertyGuru Group noted that the GLS H2 2023 sites "will result in an estimated total Confirmed List supply of around 9,250 units for the entirety of 2023 – the highest in the last ten years."
More GLS sites means potentially more homes! And as buyers become more selective about their purchases and the government takes more action to redevelop different regions across Singapore, and we could see prices moderate further in the next two to three years.

More FAQs About New Launch Condos in 2023

Private residential property prices seem to be moderating, but whether you buy a condo now really depends on your current financial situation, reasons for getting a condo (own stay or investment) and even the location of the property.

ECs are built by a private developer in partnership with HDB. It is priced cheaper but for the first 10 years, HDB regulations apply, such as the Minimum Occupation Period (MOP). Past that, the EC becomes privatised.

You will need at least $900,000 to buy a condo in the OCR, which is the most affordably priced.
