Commonwealth Towers Condo

On March 29, 2014, in Commonwealth Towers, by Developer Sales


Commonwealth Towers is fully sold and has completed construction. If you are looking for other new launches in the vicinity, there is Stirling Residences across the road. But that project is already over 84% sold, so the choices left are not great. It might be better to consider a newer launch such as Kopar, or even the freehold Leedon Green. Kopar at Newton is probably the closest in terms of characteristics, such as its 99 year leasehold tenure, as well as its walking distance to an MRT station. However Kopar at Newton is around 30% more expensive than Commonwealth Towers, which is perhaps hardly surprising given rise in prices over the last few years, and the District 9 location. The Kopar showflat is located next to the actual site, but viewings can only be arranged by advance appointment, given the current COVID-19 social distancing measures.


The Commonwealth Towers condo will be one of the hottest new residential developments around. It is being launched for sale by Hong Leong Holdings, City Developments & Hong Realty, in a prime location right next to Queenstown MRT station.

Commonwealth Towers condo will comprise two soaring towers, with Sky Terraces on the 5th, 14th, 24th and 34th levels. Residents at higher floors will get views southwards to the Southern Ridges green belt, and south-eastwards to the CBD and city skyline.

This site is at the heart of the mature Queenstown neighbourhood on the fringe of the CBD (Central Business District), an established residential estate that is much sought after. Even HDB flats nearby have transacted at close to the $1m mark.


Commonwealth Towers Condo :: Amenities & Accessibility

This new Commonwealth condominium is a short drive from to the Orchard Road shopping belt, as well as easily accessible via the AYE (Ayer Rajah Expressway) to the Raffles / Shenton / Marina Bay Financial District and the Southern waterfront of Vivocity and Sentosa.

This high-rise luxury condo is also a very short walk from Queenstown MRT station, which offers convenient travel to all parts of Singapore on the MRT lines island wide. Even within the estate itself, daily needs are well taken care of, including for recreation and relaxation.

Given its central location, accessibility, surrounding amenities, and long established brand name developer, Commonwealth Towers condo makes an excellent choice for your own use, and certainly as an investment. It has everything that one would need, and want, in a place to stay – comfort, views, all the necessities, recreational options, ease of access, with a touch of luxury thrown in.

The latest project to come out of the CDL / Hong Leong stable is Haus on Handy, now that Commonwealth Towers has fully sold out.

City Developments has a strong track record, honed from decades of experience, of spotting and clinching good sites with upside potential. In fact if anything, Haus on Handy occupies an even better site than Commonwealth Towers, in many ways.

This is a really plum site, in the Orchard Road upmarket shopping belt, directly opposite Doby Ghaut MRT station. It also sits in the heart of the cultural and educational zone around Bras Basah, helmed by the SMU (Singapore Management University), and underpinned by institutes like SOTA (School of the Arts), and Lasalle College of Fine Arts.

The Haus on Handy condo itself is really part of the Mount Sophia / Mount Emily residential estate, among the first residential estates in Singapore. Some of it are depicted in old picture postcards of Singapore, and it boasts a few old colonial bungalows that has since been conserved. There is even one on the Haus on Handy site, that has been gazetted for conservation. The developer CDL intends to turn this into a unique clubhouse, that will add to the character of the project.

The other unique feature of the Haus on Handy condo is that the site slopes fairly steeply, from Mount Sophia at the top north-east end, to Handy Road at the bottom south-west boundary. Access to the project will be from this side, barely 50 metres from an entrance to Doby Ghat MRT station and The Atrium at Orchard mall. Handy Road also leads to Plaza Singapura a couple of minutes walk away, and The Cathay, as well as to Orchard Road via Oldham Lane.

The Haus on Handy condo is expected to launch in early 2019. Analysts are predicting prices in the region of $2,600 to $2,800 PSF, compared to the $1,600 to $1,700 PSF range for Commonwealth Towers.
