Thomson Three draws strong interest

SINGAPORE: Thomson Three, the first large-scale condominium project in the Thomson area since 2011, received strong interest during its preview.

The 99-year leasehold project is a 50:50 joint venture between UOL Group Ltd and Singapore Land Ltd. The 21-storey condo offers 435 apartment units and 10 strata semi-detached houses. Thomson Three was to be launched on Sept 21.

“Response to Thomson Three has been strong, with expressions of interest from over 500 buyers. We will be launching in phases and balloting the units. We believe the positive response was due to buyers realising the close proximity to the mass rapid transit (MRT) station and Thomson Plaza, the spacious layout and quality finishes,” said UOL senior general manager of Investment and Strategic Development Kam Tin Seah, in a statement on Sept 19.

Thomson Three sits on a 145,000 sq ft site in Upper Thomson Road, near MacRitchie and Lower Pierce Reservoir. It is a minute’s walk away from the upcoming Upper Thomson MRT station and connected to the rest of Singapore via the Central Expressway, Pan Island Expressway and Seletar Expressway.

Thomson Three is priced at an average of S$1,350 (RM3,424) per sq ft. The one- to four-bedroom apartments range from 495 sq ft to 1,485 sq ft, while the strata semi-detached houses are 3,283 sq ft each.

Designed by award-winning P&T Consultants Pte Ltd, Thomson Three’s green architecture theme drew inspiration from nature, advocating a green lifestyle and sustainable development. All units will be equipped with high quality finishes and fittings, such as marble flooring, built-in oven, refrigerator and washer-cum-dryer. Other facilities include a floating gymnasium, children’s water play area, hydro gym and island lounges.
