The bathrooms exude luxury, with marble feature walls, Hansgrohe fittings, and Vitra sanitary ware.

Kitchens continue the off-white color scheme in its solid surface counter tops and cabinets, and come equipped with a full suite of kitchen appliances from Teka (German brand). Even Teka refrigerators, washing machines, and dryers are included. Glass walls around parts of the kitchen add to the airy feel, and make for great visibility.

New Condominium Launches :: One Pearl Bank Condo Showflat

Park Place Residences . New city fringe condominium in the mixed development Paya Lebar Quarter . 10 minutes train ride to Raffles Place and Marina Bay . Launching for VIP Preview February / March 2017

If you are looking for another brand new condominium that has water views as well, you might want consider Jui Residences or the One Pearl Bank condominium. This development is launching for sale soon in September 2018, but in a completely different location from Lakefront Residences. It is situated in the Boon Keng area along Kallang River, and just at the junction with Serangoon River, and about 10 minutes walk from Potong Pasir MRT station.

The long frontage that Jui Residences and One Pearl Bank enjoys facing Kallang River is what gives it its water views. Added to that the fact that this Jui condo is located on the site of the former National Aerated Water (NAW) Company site, that was a landmark in the early days of Singapore’s independence, and we can understand the rationale for this project’s name. Because “Jui” in the local vernacular can be translated as “water”.

Especially since the old NAW building was gazetted for conservation, and is being incorporated as part of the new Jui Residences or One Pearl Bank development. It sits at the front of the site facing Serangoon Road, and buffers it from the road and traffic noise of this rather busy road. The 2-storey NAW building will house a couple of shops on the ground level (one of which is likely to be used as a restaurant), and offices at the 2nd storey.

The other reason for the attractiveness of One Pearl Bank, is the fact that it is a freehold project, yet will be priced at about the same level as for new leasehold launches in the vicinity. It is being developed and sold by SDB (Selangor Dredging Berhad). The Jui Residences and One Pearl Bank condo showflat will open for viewing on 15 September 2018, and all enquiries are welcomed.

Guide to Buying New Singapore Property

On October 31, 2010, in Lakefront Condo, by admin
Answers to questions you may have on buying Lakefront Residences


What are the costs involved in buying new property in Singapore?

  1. Purchase price of the lakefront condo unit itself.
  2. Stamp Duty payable to IRAS (Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore). Most easily calculated using the formula: (3% x Purchase Price) minus $5,400. See note below on when Stamp Duty is payable.
  3. Legal fee payable to your Conveyancing Lawyer. Usually around $2,000 to $3,000. If you are taking a bank loan, chances are your bank may cover most or all of the legal fee if you use one of their panel of lawyers.

When is Stamp Duty payable?

Stamp Duty is payable within 2 weeks of signing the Sales & Purchase Agreement (S&P). Buyer is required to sign the S&P within 3 weeks of receiving it. The S&P is usually sent to the buyer (or his lawyer if he has given the Developer his lawyer’s particulars) between one to two weeks after booking the unit and getting the Option to Purchase.

Stamp Duty quick formula: (3% x Purchase Price) – $5,400

Stamp Duty may be reimbursable from your own CPF funds, but you will need to pay it in cash first, as it takes some time for CPF to release it back to you after your lawyer writes to them to do so.

Any other costs for Lakefront Residences? Such as admin charges or commissions or agent fees?

No. Buyers do not pay commissions on private property purchases (unlike purchases of HDB flats). Nor do buyers pay any admin or agent fees.

How are purchases of Singapore property funded?

If you are NOT currently paying off another housing loan:

  • First 5% cash (by cheque) at time of booking your lakefront condo unit.
  • Next 15% within 8 weeks (typically) of booking the unit. This 15% can be from CPF funds, or from cash.
  • The remaining 80% can be from CPF funds, bank loan, or cash. This is payable progressively, which means that you (or the bank on your behalf) pays out the money as and when construction work reaches stages as set out in the Progressive Payment Schedule. This means that if you’re taking a loan, your monthly instalments begin only when the bank disburses the amount, and the amounts payable start out small and slowly increase.

If currently paying off a housing loan:

  • First 5% cash (by cheque) at time of booking your lakefront condo unit.
  • Next 15% within 8 weeks (typically) of booking the unit. Of this 5% must be from your own cash, and the remaining 10% can be from CPF funds, or from cash.
  • When foundation works are completed, another 10% is payable to the developer. This can be from CPF funds, or from cash.
  • When reinforced concrete framework is completed, another 10% is payable to the developer. This can be from CPF funds, or from cash.
  • The remaining 60% can be from CPF funds, bank loan, or cash. This is payable progressively, which means that you (or the bank on your behalf) pays out the money as and when construction work reaches certain stages. So if you’re taking a loan, your monthly instalments payable start out small and slowly increases.
