Its attraction goes beyond its size and number of units. Besides being located just adjacent to the popular Tampines Round Market & Food Centre, this 99-year leasehold mega-development is also a walking distance of Tampines Regional Centre and is served by three MRT stations—Tampines, Tampines West and Simei.
Because of its attractive land price—it was sold for $970 million to developer Sim Lian at $676 psf per plot ratio—potential buyers can expect the prices to be relatively affordable for Treasure. The expected TOP date is December 2022.
