Corals At Keppel Bay – A good buy

The Tenants’ File

An email from an incoming expat tenant arrived in my inbox on 24 August 2016. After checking out my profile online, he wanted to engage my help to look for a suitable rental apartment in Singapore. Our terms of engagement was quickly agreed upon and I set about gathering the tenant’s requirements.

The brief was fairly straightforward: he was looking for a relatively new condo with 2-3 bedrooms (must have balcony), standard facilities and within walking distance to the MRT station / amenities. Based on the location of his office (Biopolis) and budget, the Harbourfront locale immediately came to my mind.

There are essentially four condos to look at in the Harbourfront area,

* Skyline Residences
* Reflections At Keppel Bay
* Caribbean At Keppel Bay
* Corals At Keppel Bay

My usual approach is to show one to two units from each condo during the first round of visit. This enables me to get to know the tenant’s likes and dislikes before making refinements to what I feel would be suitable. Subsequent rounds of visit can be more focused (for example, seeing more units in a particular condo).

We met up for the first time in early September and I proceeded to show him units in these four condos.

Of the four condos we visited, the tenant was particularly impressed with Corals At Keppel Bay.

Corals At Keppel Bay

Corals At Keppel Bay is a newly completed condo that is situated in between Caribbean and Harbourfront Towers. Designed by world renowned architect, Daniel Libeskind, Corals is a fully integrated smart home. Owners started collecting keys to their units some time around end August 2016 which made the timing for our visit just nice.

The tenant took an immediate liking to Corals the moment he saw the place. The 3 bedroom deluxe units (approx 1,500sqft) are spacious and have relatively good views of the sea. In addition to the smart home features, premium appliances and fittings (provided by the developer), the wardrobes also have built-in dehumidifiers – something that you do not see often. Like Reflections and Caribbean, residents staying at Corals also enjoy discounts when they dine at Marina @ Keppel Bay. Corals is also the nearest in terms of walking distance to Harbourfront MRT and Vivocity Shopping mall when compared with the other three condos.

We were probably amongst the first to see the units in Corals and had first pick of the choice units. A deal for the chosen unit was done within days and the tenant is now happily settled in Corals.

Having seen first hand what Corals has to offer, I must say it is a very nice development.

If the thought of waterfront living (limited in numbers) and the opportunity to own a brand new unit excites you, get in touch and we can see if Corals At Keppel Bay is suitable for you.
