Living in the CBD: D1, D2 & D7

MONEY MIND program (March 2019):  “Living the High Life in the CBD”

Every evening, I walk 3.5km around the Marina Bay, and see hordes of tourists enjoying themselves. And I always wonder to myself: Why are Singaporeans not enjoying themselves here?

In many global cities around the world, living in the financial district is a privilege and will cost a bomb, but uniquely in Singapore, you can still get a good unit at many D1, D2 and D7 properties for the same price — in terms of psf — as some new condo launches in the outlying suburbs!

Plans to transform Orchard Road, create more buzz in CBD
