All condo units are not equal. Penthouse units are considered the most expensive, most exclusive and most luxurious units in any condo development.
A penthouse is a unit located on the highest floor of a block. Nowadays, many penthouse units are built over more than one storey and tend to be much larger than the other units in the development.
Other than condos, penthouse units can also be found in various different building types. Examples include HDB flats in the form of penthouse maisonettes and HDB lofts, office buildings and shopping malls.
Because of their high costs, sales of penthouse units sometimes make the news. Earlier this year, five penthouse units at Marina Bay Residences were put up for sale for $138 million, following the sale of James Dyson’s triplex penthouse at Wallich Residence for $62 million in 2020.

Luxury Property in Singapore
Despite the COVID-19 pandemic, the luxury property market in Singapore has boomed in 2021, with a record $7.5 billion in luxury property transactions recorded in the first half of the year. Driven by the ultra-rich, the spike in transactions can be partly attributed to low interest rates during the pandemic.
Affluent buyers seem to be optimistic about Singapore’s post-pandemic economic recovery and are looking to enter the property market before the rebound. For instance, properties in Sentosa Cove are seeing renewed interest, and PropertyGuru’s Singapore Property Market Index Q3 2021 indicates that private property prices are still trending upwards.
