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!
Update: The Blossoms condo. Now that Seventy St Patricks is sold out, if you want something equally near an MRT station and good schools, you might want to consider the upcoming Blossoms condo launch. This is another promising little development, with the advantage of being right next to a park.
Another attractive feature of the Blossoms condo is that it is situated on elevated ground. And because it is a high-rise project, unlike Seventy St Patricks, there will be good views to be had from higher floor apartments. The Blossoms condo launch is likely to only take place towards the end of this year.
