Last weekend, I was introduced to one of the newest project launches in Singapore for 2020, Penrose, which was near my old residence at Paya Lebar.
Nestled in the middle of 3 residential projects at Aljunied, I found out after my own research, that this development has the potential of excellent capital growth for a safe entry investment, due to the following three reasons:
Past Track Record Of Capital Appreciation After New Amenities And Residences Added
There is one neighbouring residential land to Penrose that is earmarked for development in the future, and also a new commercial development next to Aljunied MRT about the size of Paya Lebar Quarter coming up.

Looking at how current condominiums at the nearby estate of Paya Lebar has appreciated at 50% and more because Paya Lebar Quarter, a commercial mall, and the Park Place Residences were introduced and completed, there is high possibility of a repeat occurrence of similar capital appreciation to Penrose when the new mall and new condo is ready at Aljunied.

Major Transformation At Kallang To Complete in 2025.
Taking reference on how property prices has risen at a similar nearby water basin and park, the Marina Bay area, after it has gone through a transformation from a kite-flying BBQ spot to the vibrant leisure and shopping district it is today, we can conclude that once Kallang has completed a similar transformation, it will experience similar property price increases as the area becomes more desirable.

Large Potential Pool Of Buyers From HDB Upgraders Nearby.
HDB owners who bought their BTO flats at nearby locations like Pine Vista, Pine Green and Dakota Breeze will be fulfilling their MOP from 2025 onwards, which is around the time Penrose is scheduled to TOP and have a physical unit for buyers to move in immediately. The recent HDB 4-room and 5-room flats at Dakota Cluster have transacted between $53x,000 to $86x,000, giving these HDB sellers a substantial pool of cash after the sale to upgrade to a private residential home in the same area.

With these 3 key factors supporting the capital appreciation and demand for Penrose, I will recommend this development for families looking for a home near the city, which has the flexibility of turning it into an investment in the middle to long term (either through a sale and take profit, or to rent to students from the 2 private schools nearby or to working professionals from the Macpherson area).
