Sentosa Cove penthouse sold at S$2.4m loss

SINGAPORE (March 2): A two-level penthouse located on the sixth-storey of The Berth by the Cove, has been sold for S$3.25 million (RM9.61 million), or S$1,105 per sq ft (psf), at Edmund Tie & Company’s auction on Wednesday — albeit at almost half its original value.
