Redas: Increase in private residential prices not reflective of market conditions

Author: leahlim   |  Publish date: Wed, 18 Sep 2019, 12:44 PM


SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - Singapore developers are concerned with the current market situation of “high supply and subdued demand”, says Chia Ngiang Hong, president of the Real Estate Developers Association Singapore (Redas), at the association’s Mid-Autumn Festival Lunch today (Sept 13).
While the private residential property market has seen more activity in recent months, Chia highlights that the price increase of 1.5% in 2Q2019, “does not reflect the true state of the market”.

SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - The Ascott Ltd is pushing the boundaries for its first co-living venture. Unlike other hospitality properties, residents at lyf Funan will be greeted by the sights and sounds of a laundromat foaming and frothing to the cycle of soiled laundry. “No hotel, no serviced apartment, no co-living space has put a laundromat in front, at the entrance,” says Tan Gan Hup, lyf chief and assistant VP for brand & marketing, digital innovation and lyf at The Ascott Ltd. “But then again – why not?”
Shrugging off the usual hospitality conventions, lyf Funan will fit the laundry area with a beer vending machine. “While you’re washing your clothes, you can actually interact with people,” says Tan. “It’s all about … giving people the opportunity to connect if they want to.”
