The sales gallery for Gem Residences, the first private condominium to launch in Toa Payoh since 2009, will open tomorrow (29 April) at Lorong 5 Toa Payoh.

Jointly developed by Gamuda Land, Evia Real Estate and Maxdin, the 578-unit project is expected to cater to the pent-up demand for property in the area.

A mix of one- to five-bedroom apartments and penthouses are available, with sizes ranging from 452 sq ft for a one-bedroom unit to 2,045 sq ft for a six-bedroom penthouse.

“Gem Residences marks Gamuda’s first project in Singapore,” said Chow Chee Wah, Managing Director of Gamuda Land. “Estimated average prices for Gem Residences are about $1,480 psf.”

Aside from standard facilities such as a tennis court, gymnasium and landscaped gardens, the condo is offering a new club and condo concept, which includes an international 24-hour concierge service, weekly on-site medical consultation, and privileges at Gamuda’s Horizon Hills Golf & Country Club in Johor.

The medical consultation service involves a tie-up with Tetsuyu Home Care, and is the first to be offered by a condominium here. Residents can get regular health assessments and medical consultations in their homes from visiting doctors.

In addition, there will be an in-house car rental service for residents, which is in line with Singapore’s vision of becoming a car-lite nation.

Vincent Ong, Managing Director of Evia Real Estate, said: “We believe that condominium living today goes beyond merely being able to enjoy a suite of facilities an elevator ride away. It is about having a lifestyle change.”

Located near Braddell MRT station, Toa Payoh HDB Hub and established schools, the 99-year leasehold project will be launched in end May, and is expected to obtain TOP in 2020.
