Martin Modern, GuocoLand’s latest residential development, attracted more than 2,000 visitors to its showflat preview over the weekend (8 – 9 July).

Located at Martin Place in Robertson Quay, it is the first large-scale condominium to be launched in the area in the past eight years.

When completed by end 2021, it will comprise 450 units set within a botanic garden. A range of two- to four-bedroom apartments from 764 sq ft to 1,798 sq ft are available. Prices start from $1.8 million.

One of the visitors, X. J. Yan, a Singaporean in her early 50s said: “The layout is elegantly designed and is functional as well as practical.”

Mohamed Ismail, CEO of marketing agent PropNex Realty, said the response was very strong.

“In fact, we have been getting numerous enquiries on the ground about Martin Modern over the past few months,” he noted.

The 99-year leasehold project is expected to be officially launched on 22 July.

“Many people recognise that the high-end market presents very good value now and are waiting for the right opportunity to enter the market,” said Cheng Hsing Yao, Group Managing Director at GuocoLand Singapore.

“Martin Modern is coming into the market at a very opportune time. On top of that, it will benefit from the continuing growth and transformation of the Robertson Quay area when the new MRT line and future developments there come up.”
