Contemporary living in the city-fringe coupled with the convenience of an MRT interchange station and a shopping mall. This unbeatable proposition was why throngs of prospective buyers turned up early at the Sky Vue showflat in the last weekend of September when CapitaLand launched its latest residential project in Bishan. The demand for the 505 units released for sale was so overwhelming, interested buyers had to ballot for a chance to purchase units. By the close of the weekend, 433 units or 86 percent of the launched units have been sold, mainly two- and three-bedroom units.
Mr Wong Heang Fine, CEO (Residential) of CapitaLand Singapore said, “We would like to thank our homebuyers and investors who made Sky Vue the best-selling project in Singapore for the month of September 2013. The strong sales are a result of the varying designs, layouts and unit mix which cater to the needs and preferences of homebuyers from different market segments. Designed to appeal to the aspirations of urbanites, Sky Vue is set to redefine city-fringe living in Singapore.”
The development, designed with young urbanites in mind, sits in the heart of Bishan Central and offers unparalleled access to lifestyle amenities. Just three minutes’ walk from Bishan MRT and bus interchanges, Sky Vue is also right across the street from Junction 8 and the Bishan Library. Fitness buffs will appreciate the condominium’s proximity to Bishan Stadium, Bishan Sports Hall & Recreation Centre and the sprawling Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park. Reputable schools like Raffles Institution and Catholic High School are also nearby.
“I bought Sky Vue because of its excellent location. My parents and my sister also stay in the area so it is very convenient,” said Penny Foo who selected a two-bedroom unit.
Practical Lifestyle Amenities
The 694-unit Sky Vue comprises twin, sleek 37-storey towers with one- to three-bedroom units, two bedroom suites, and penthouses. The units range between 484 and 1,905 square feet; and boast well-articulated layouts and a chic, contemporary design that offers the best of modern living.
“I like the design of the apartment’s interior. The concept is different - the kitchen opens into the long balcony. This makes it perfect for dining at the balcony,” said Emily Gwee who purchased a two-bedroom unit.
To accommodate individual tastes, Sky Vue offers a unique customisation option. Home-owners can choose between warm (brown, cream and beige) and cool (black, grey and white) colour schemes for the flooring and finishes of their units. Every apartment also features a luxurious walk-in wardrobe in the master bedroom.
Designed by DCA Architects Pte Ltd, Sky Vue will feature landscaped grounds and pockets of greenery throughout the property. Four roof-top, open-air facilities – Sky Lounge, Sky Gym, Sky Walk and Sky Dream – allow residents to socialise and entertain against the stunning backdrop of the surrounding cityscape and park. A 50-metre lap pool, leisure pools, fitness facilities, dining pavilion with party lawn, rain and hammock gardens encourage residents to connect and interact in common spaces that cater to different lifestyles.
Long-time Bishan resident, Wilson Hui was thrilled by the amenities his new home will have. He said, “My unit is overlooks the pool. So I have a good view. I was also attracted to Sky Vue because of its central location. It is near almost every part of Singapore.”
Sky Vue is expected to be completed by 2017. But if the rousing response it received at its launch was anything to go by, it is clear that Sky Vue has set a standard in city-fringe living with its prized location well-articulated layouts and practical lifestyle amenities.
