SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) – The very first exec apartment (EC) of 2022, North Gaia, opened its sales gallery and showflats for public preview last weekend. The sales gallery at Canberra Link drew concerning 2,000 viewers by the close of Saturday, as well as one more 1,700 on Sunday. This brings the tally of guests over the end ofthe week of April 9-10 to 3,700.
” The last time we saw such groups was three years earlier in the pre-Covid period,” claims Doris Ong, deputy chief executive officer of age Singapore. “A great deal of people haven’t checked out showflats in a long time,” she adds.
The 616-unit North Gaia at Yishun Close opened for e-application on April 7, and also will be released for sale on April 23. “We are extremely motivated by the solid notice in our job,” comments Lee Sze Hao, CEO of Sing Holdings, the property developer of North Gaia.
Limited supply is one more factor, with less than 15 units left unsold from the existing stock, explains Gafoor. There are only 2 EC ventures that have remnant units available. The 413-unit Provence House at Canberra Crescent, which was introduced in May last year, has simply 3 unsold units. At Parc Greenwich on Fernvale Lane in Seletar Hills, just 10 of the 496 units in the EC property continue to be unsold.

We thus look forward to solid involvement due to bottled-up need for ECs.”

At North Gaia, viewings were still performed by-appointment solely.
