The company said in a statement yesterday that the 91-unit development in Martin Road, near Mohammed Sultan Road and Clarke Quay, will mostly comprise one-plus-one bedroom and two-bedroom apartments ranging from 969-1,130 sq ft. There will be a limited number of larger two-plus-one and three-bedroom apartments, ranging from 1,335-1,485 sq ft.

 

Knight Frank director (research and consultancy) Nicholas Mak said the pricing appears a little ‘bullish’ but the developer may feel the project’s ‘design’ merits this.

 

A unit in nearby Robertson Blue sold recently for around $1,800 psf, he said.

 

And in March, it was reported that about 30 units at Martin Place Residences in Kim Yam Road sold for an average price of of about $1,800 psf after discounts.

 

SC Global is best known for developing high-end niche projects. And according to its chairman and chief executive officer Simon Cheong: ‘There is always room for the right product. Martin No 38, with the SC Global reputation for quality, will be unique and original. We are confident it will be well received.’

 

The development is designed by award-winning architect Kerry Hill. It is based on warehouse lofts in New York and London and features high ceilings and seamless interior spaces.

 

SC Global says: ‘An austere and beguiling industrial aestheticism pervades the details of this development, from the blackened tap fittings to the sheet-metal panels in the bathrooms, with their exposed bolt heads, unplastered interior concrete walls, exposed plywood edges of the cabinetry and acres of unvarnished timber.’

 

SC Global bought the site in 1999 but deferred development until the area had ‘rejuvenated itself and the context for this housing concept became ripe’.

 

SC Global projects under construction include The Marq on Paterson Hill and Hilltops at Cairnhill. The group has a landbank of more than 1.1 million sq ft of gross floor area in the Orchard Road and at Sentosa Cove.
