Condo cluster in the east still attracting buyers

Demand remains strong despite lack of amenities and MRT station


It is one of the older condo clusters around but Bayshore Park, Costa Del Sol and The Bayshore just off Upper East Coast Road are still attracting buyers - even without an MRT station nearby.

There is plenty to attract, from the impressive sea views many high-floor units enjoy to the quiet, private surroundings, the proximity to the beach and the rental potential.

The lack of amenities in the area also does not seem to deter. Most residents wanting a supermarket or choice of restaurants head to nearby Siglap, although the condos have some shops and eateries within the grounds.

The nearest MRT and bus interchange is in Bedok. There is an upcoming Eastern Region Line, slated for completion in 2020 at the earliest. Details of station locations have not been disclosed yet.
