SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - A three-bedroom unit at Reflections at Keppel Bay, along Keppel Bay View in District 4, will be put up for auction for $2.84 million ($1,724 psf) on Aug 25, according to Edmund Tie, which is handling the bank auction.

Spanning 1,647 sq ft, the unit is on the third floor of the development. It is a corner unit, offering the homeowner “a lot of privacy”, says Joy Tan, senior director, head of auction and sales at Edmund Tie. The unit overlooks the yacht berths with green surroundings, and has a north-south orientation, she adds.
It is well-kept and in a move-in-ready condition, so investors will not need to spend much on renovations, says Tan.
The unit was first purchased for $3.77 million ($2,287 psf) in August 2012, based on caveats lodged with URA.

“We have received quite a lot of enquiries [for this property]. Most of the prospects are looking for investment as the upcoming plans for Greater Southern Waterfront could add value to the property, with more new housing, amenities and entertainment uses,” notes Tan. The Greater Southern Waterfront extends from Pasir Panjang to Marina East over an area of 2,000ha, and the Singapore government has planned for it to be transformed into a major gateway for urban living along the city-state’s southern coast.
Tan believes that “owners will be keen on this unit, as this development provides unique amenities for their residents to enjoy the resortstyle living and yet is still near workplaces in the CBD”.
Rentals fetched at similar-sized units at Reflections at Keppel Bay from May to July this year ranged from $6,600 to $8,100 per month, according to URA data.
