Geylang Condo New Launch Projects
Geylang condo new launch projects are always worth checking out because of their locality: Geylang is a mature residential estate at the eastern part of Singapore, just minutes of travelling away from the downtown area.
Some new condo launches in this area include Rezi 24, Seraya Residences, Olloi, 33 Residences, Penrose and a few others waiting to be released soon.
Geylang in a nutshell
Geylang is a place of fascination, in every sense of the word.
While long regarded by locals and oversea visitors alike as Singapore’s red light district, the fact of the matter is, Geylang’s seedier reputation has heavily dwindled over time, especially in recent years.
With tight police enforcement and change in the residential mix of the area, the present Geylang is more regarded as one of Singapore’s top destinations for checking out affordable and sumptuous local cuisines. Some homegrown heritage food brands trace their founding roots in Geylang and quite a number of them can still be found operating there.
Geylang feels like a connective bridge between the eastern side of Singapore and the downtown area that starts from the Nicoll Highway onward, which Geylang leads directly into on the town-facing end.
Why buy new condo launch in Geylang
As suggested right at the beginning, buying or investing into a condo property in Geylang is ideal because of the proximity to central Singapore, where the majority of commercial activities take place.
In terms of transportation, Geylang is highly accessible via a variety of options, both public and private.
It is flanked by 2 MRT stations; 1 on each end (Paya Lebar MRT and Kallang MRT), and a 3rd one (Aljunied MRT) right in the middle of the area. Commuting can’t get easier than this.
As the major through way leading to town from Singapore’s east side, a large number of buses ply through its main road.
It is also well connected to the major expressways that allows travelling to farther parts of Singapore with ease and convenience.
There is a ton of recreational things to do in Geylang, no less helped by the presence of a few popular shopping malls in the Paya Lebar development region such as Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) and others.
These factors collectively contribute to Geylang’s desirability as a top location choice when buying a new condo launch.
