SINGAPORE - A flood of potential buyers prompted Hong Leong Holdings to extend the opening hours for the first-day preview of its new Commonwealth Towers on Sunday.
The developer pushed back the closing time from 8pm to 10pm to accommodate the more than 1,500 people who turned up at the showflat in Margaret Drive. The preview started at 12 noon.
Many of those who attended the preview put their names down to indicate their interest in the development so that marketing agents could follow up with them.
The 99-year leasehold condominium of two 43-storey blocks comprises mostly one- and two-bedders and will be linked to Queenstown MRT station by an overhead pedestrian linkway.
Sales of the condo's units are expected to be launched on May 1. The development is scheduled to be completed by late 2017.
Hong Leong Holding's head of sales and marketing, Ms Betsy Chng, said in a statement yesterday: "If the response to our preview is anything to go by, we are confident Commonwealth Towers will be well-received by buyers."
The show suites are open for public preview until April 27, from 12pm to 8pm.
Prices will be released closer to the launch.
