Arena Residences Freehold Condos reaches new high of $2213 per sq. ft.
Arena Residences, located on Guillemard Lane and completed in this year, was developed by RH Guillemard. Roxy-Pacific Holdings is a subsidiary.
The previous high psf price at Arena Residences came from the sale of a two-bedroom apartment in 549 sq ft at around $2 million ($2,186 per square foot) last November.
At its November 2018 launch, 40 of its 98 available units were purchased. By February 2021, the condo was completely sold. The condo has a mixture of two- and 3-bedroom units. Sizes start at 549 and 807 square feet, respectively.
Arena Residences is a freehold condominium in Geylang’s District 14. A recent transaction marked the highest psf price for this condo. On 10th October, a 603 square ft, two-bedder changed hands at a price of $1.33mil, or $2.213 per sqft.
This is the most expensive psf among all condos which achieved a high psf for the period between Oct 3 and 10.
This is the first sale of the boutique development this year. The seller bought the unit in January 2019 at $1.11m (1,846psf). They made a gain of approximately $220,000.
Data from EdgeProp’s LandLens shows that 89.2% (or a little over 900,000) of the condo’s buyers are Singaporeans. Another 7.8% (7,8%) are permanent residents. The remaining 2.9% (2,9%) are foreigners. The condo has good access to transport hubs such as Paya Lebar MRT Stations, Mountbatten MRT Stations and Aljunied MRT Stations.
