CapitaLand sells 24 more The Wharf Residence units
About 80% of buyers for the 134 units sold to date are Singaporeans
CAPITALAND has sold another 24 apartments over the weekend at The Wharf Residence at Tong Watt Road, off Mohamed Sultan Road, the listed property group said in a release yesterday.
This comes after the sale of 85 apartments on Friday following a relaunch of the 999-year-leasehold project.
The apartments are priced at between $1,300 and $1,600 per square foot (psf) inclusive of a package comprising stamp duty absorption and an interest absorption scheme.
Buyers who do not opt for this package will enjoy an 8 per cent discount.
Last year, CapitaLand priced apartments in the development at $1,500 to $1,900 psf, again inclusive of the stamp duty/interest absorption package.
However, buyers were not given the choice of not opting for this package.
With the latest sales achieved up to 4pm yesterday, CapitaLand has sold 134 of the total 173 apartments in the project.
About 80 per cent of buyers for the 134 units sold to date are Singaporeans.
The rest are from Indonesia, Malaysia, China, Japan, Canada and Vietnam, said CapitaLand Residential Singapore CEO Patricia Chia.
The apartments comprise two to four-bedroom units ranging from 1,012 to 2,196 square feet, as well as five penthouses (2,745 to 5,565 sq ft).
The development also includes 13 conserved shophouses, dubbed the Vintage Collection houses, ranging from 4,478 to 4,930 sq ft in strata area.
Ms Chia said CapitaLand has received queries for the conserved houses and will launch them for sale soon.
