New Freehold Condo Sky Everton Has One of the Best Locations We’ve Seen
Sky Everton is located on Everton Road in the Spottiswoode enclave. This new freehold condo has one of the best locations we’ve seen, and we are not saying this lightly. It is close to a huge variety of food options, walking distance to MRT stations on four different lines, and is just minutes away from the CBD area.
The site for Sky Everton is the former Asia Gardens, which was sold for $343 million in a collective sale to a Sustained Land-led consortium that includes Ho Lee Group and other partners. The price reflects a land rate of $1,722 psf ppr. Due to the high development baseline, there is no development charge payable, which translates to $1,565 psf ppr. Comprising 36 storeys in a single block with a total of 262 units, the condo is set to be completed at the end of 2023.

Location: A Mix of Old and New
The rows of shophouses in the area lend an eclectic charm.
The area is surrounded by an assortment of the old and new. High-rise private and public housing sit alongside rows of pastel-hued conserved 1920s Chinese shophouses, lending the location an eclectic charm. The site sits further inside Everton Road, away from the heavy traffic noise on the busy Neil Road. On our weekday site visit, we found the place to be relatively tranquil with traffic along Everton Road kept to a minimum.

Units at Sky Everton will likely receive unblocked views as the high-rise buildings around it do not sit directly in front of the condo thus impeding its views. Residents will therefore enjoy the views of the upcoming Greater Southern Waterfront, an exciting themed destination zone running from Pasir Panjang to Marina East. With work in the area expected to start in the next five to 10 years following the relocation of the port terminals, residents at Sky Everton can expect to be at the forefront of exciting developments in the area.

Sky Everton will also be a 10-min walk to the future Cantonment MRT along the Circle Line. The station is set for completion in 2025, closing off the loop in the Circle Line.
Residents will also have convenient access to other modes of public transport. There are buses along Neil Road that go to neighbourhoods in the western parts of Singapore, including second CBD district Jurong East.

The space is also a key node in the Rail Corridor, a trans-island green artery built along the former railway line in Singapore that is set to be fully connected by 2021.

Medical Facilities: Being located so close to a number of medical facilities will mean the pool of people you can rent your unit out to increases to include people who need to be close to these facilities. Sky Everton is located just less than a 10-min walking distance from the Singapore General Hospital (SGH) and the adjoining medical facilities in the area which also include the Singapore National Eye Centre, National Heart Centre Singapore, National Cancer Centre Singapore and the Diabetics and Metabolism Centre. There will also be an Outram Community Hospital in the vicinity that is set for completion next year.
It was also recently announced that the SGH Campus will be getting a makeover under a 20-year master plan. With the redevelopment, the area will triple in size to accommodate more room for patient care and greater capabilities by integrating medical care, research and education in a large 43-hectare campus. One of the highlights include a new SGH Elective Care Centre, which will add more operating theatres, specialist outpatient clinics and acute beds.
