Seventy St Patricks Condominium

Seventy St Patricks is fully SOLD. However a 99 year leasehold condominium will be launching for sale early 2017 one train stop down at the future Siglap MRT Station. 27 storeys, with full unblocked sea view. See Seaside Residences.

Alternatively UOL is launching a condo in Clementi. See The Clement Canopy.

Seventy St Patrick’s condominium is a delightful low rise 5-storey high development, with a cosy landed feel, right in the heart of the District 15 Marine Parade / East Coast residential area with its very strong sense of neighbourliness.

Seventy St Patricks is a rarity, one of the few brand new freehold condos that will have an MRT station (Marine Terrace station) almost on its doorstep. The showflat will be unveiled soon, and here are some artist’s impressions.

Seventy St Patricks Design

The overall design and site layout of Seventy St Patrick’s are unique. The blocks are set out on the site in boomerang shapes, so that almost all units get views of either the pool, or little nooks and corners of gardens.

In addition, 43% of the units get dual frontages. Which means no other unit at its back (as is usually the case in most projects). Instead, these enjoy views from both sides, allowing for through ventilation, and balconies behind the kitchen. You can choose to have a leisurely breakfast corner there, or be strictly pragmatic and decide that is your yard.

A lot of thought and attention to details here. Floor plan layouts are efficient and functional. The rooms are a decent size, not lavish, but not shoe-box. The finishes are lovely. Marble flooring to the living and dining areas, and solid oak timber flooring to the bedrooms.

The landscape architects, Sitetectonix, have weaved the facilities and gardens between the blocks in thematic layers, creating a sense of space and tranquility. Seventy St Patrick’s has in fact won the 2014 International Property Award (Asia Pacific) for Residential Developments in Singapore.

70 St Patricks Road

70 St Patricks Road is the site of the former St Patricks Garden that was sold enbloc to UOL. Now, a new condominium is on the drawing board, and is expected to launch for sale in 2014.

15 AUGUST 2014 UPDATE: New MRT Station will be beside 70 St Patricks! See below for location.

This promises to be one of the most attractive condos on the market. For a start, it is on freehold land, an increasingly rare and valued commodity. 70 St Patricks Road is also in a quiet low-rise residential estate. For an idea of the kind of homes in the neighbourhood, here is a picture of the next door neighbour, St Patrick’s Residences (launched & sold out some time ago).

St Patrick’s Road is at Marine Parade, in the heart of East Coast, one of the most coveted districts to live in. Fans of East Coast (and there are many) tout it’s closeness to the city centre, the proximity to the East Coast Beaches, the sense of peace and cosy charm, the sea breezes, and the food.

Especially the food. East Coast is home to some of the tastiest, most mouth-watering and widest variety of food outlets around. Gastronomic delights, old and new abound, in almost every nook and cranny.

Other Location Highlights 0f 70 St Patricks

It is also home to some of the most established and reputable schools. 70 St Patricks is within 1 km to Tao Nan Primary, Ngee Ann Primary, and CHIJ Katong. Others like St Patrick’s School, CHIJ Katong Convent, and Victoria Junior College are within walking distances.

Many of those who grow up in the East Coast area never want to leave it, and it’s easy to see why.

Parkway Parade shopping mall is 1.5 km down Marine Parade Road. It has a pretty complete range of shops, banks, supermarket.

The much anticipated Eastern Region Line (ERL) MRT line that will connect the residential estates of Changi, Upper East Coast, Bedok South, Siglap, Marine Parade and Tanjong Rhu with the Central Business District in Marina Bay is due to complete by 2020. Anybody’s guess right now exactly where the Marine Parade station is located, but it shouldn’t be that far away!

On 15 August 2014, LTA finally unveiled the locations of the stations that will comprise the new Eastern Region Line. They also announced that it will be joined to the Thomson Line, and so renamed to the Thomson East Coast Line (TEL). Here is a map of the whole line:

The best part of this news is that one of the stations on this line, the Marine Terrace station, will be right in front of Seventy St Patrick! The nearest entrance looks to be no more than 100m away, near St Patrick’s School.

This eastern part of the TEL will have 9 stations, stretching from Sungei Bedok to Tanjong Rhu. It will then connect northwards to the 22 stations of the northern stretch that were announced earlier under the Thomson Line.

The 13km eastern stretch will run through Tanjong Rhu, Katong Park, Amber, Marine Parade, Marine Terrace, Siglap, Bayshore, Bedok South & Sungei Bedok. The first 7 stations, from Tanjong Rhu to Bayshore, is expected to be completed by 2023.

And as we all know by now, the station will be embedded so deep underground, that residents of Seventy St Patrick won’t feel or hear any passing trains at all! Merely enjoy the convenience.
