With its selling price of exactly S$1 million, the flat fetches a pricey rate of S$650 per square foot.

Mr Mohan Sandrasegeran, Head of Research & Data Analytics at Singapore Realtors Inc (SRI) said in a media release that the sale is a key milestone for Sengkang.

Since the first quarter of 2022, data showed the estate’s resale transactions inching consistently upwards to the million-dollar mark.

He added that the demand for bigger flats among “a specific niche of buyers who prioritise ample living space” is a crucial driver behind million-dollar HDB resale transactions.

In particular, such executive flats are perceived to be rare as HDB stopped building them since 1995. Their scarcity thus also explains their exorbitant resale prices.

Located near key services & amenities

Apart from its spacious layout, the maisonette is in close proximity to a number of services and amenities, further adding to its appeal.

The closest train stations are the Ranggung LRT station and Buangkok MRT station, both of which are within a walking distance of 500m from the block.

Noting Sengkang’s impressive transformation over the years, Mr Mohan said:

These enhancements not only meet the daily needs of the residents but also substantially improve the quality of life in the area.
