Wandervale EC . New Executive Condominium . 600m to Choa Chu Kang MRT
The Wandervale EC is a long awaited executive condominium in the Choa Chu Kang Town Centre vicinity. It has been 3 years since the last new EC here, The Rainforest, launched within 6 minutes walk from the Choa Chu Kang MRT Station and sold out very quickly. There has been a lack of such well located executive condos in the North-West of Singapore since then.

The Wandervale is just next door to the Rainforest EC. It will be around 600m walk from the Choa Chu Kang MRT station & Lot One Shopping Mall, and Choa Chu Kang Park, making it one of the few executive condos close to a town centre and station.
Condominiums that are within a short walk of an MRT station and town center are typically popular and sought after (eg. Trilliant @ Tampines, JGateway @ Jurong, The Rainforest). Very convenient for staying in, valued higher, easier to re-sell or rent out later, and have greater capital appreciation potential.
12 December 2016 Update: Wandervale EC is in fact 93% sold at this point. The 4 bedroom units are sold out. If you need at least 4 bedrooms, you might want to consider the next EC that will be launching in Choa Chu Kang. See the Inz Residence for details.

What’s Special about the Wandervale EC
What sets this EC apart from many others (including the rare few others that are similarly close to MRT stations & shopping centres) are 3 factors:
- Scarcity Value: There are very few ECs in this part of Singapore. Compared to other estates, demand vs supply is greater.
- Green Views: This EC and Rainforest are directly opposite the wide green Mindef grounds. Certain high floor north facing units can get some surprisingly serene green views.
- Design & Layout: Wandervale has arguably the best floor plan layouts of all the ECs – in fact, even better than most private condos, for units of similar sizes. It makes extremely efficient use of its floor space – the bedrooms are very decently sized, dining areas can comfortably accommodate 6 to 8 seat tables, the TV distance to the sofa is really nice, and the yards are a very useful feature, especially for laundry.
Wandervale EC is also near the Bukit Panjang Integrated Transport Hub (completing in 2017) that incorporates an air-conditioned bus interchange seamlessly linked to the Downtown Line MRT station (DT1) and LRT Station (BP6). Offers a direct train to the City Centre.

10 EVELYN AND THE AMO RESIDENCES . DEVELOPER LAUNCHES
10 Evelyn is a small low-rise luxury development in the Newton / Novena area, comprising 4 blocks of 5 storey apartments, with attic residential flats and a basement carpark, swimming pool and communal facilities, while the Amo Residences is a high-rise private condominium, but sited in a suburban neighbourhood at Ang Mo Kio.
Both locations are well-known residential areas. However 10 Evelyn is just on the outskirts of the famed Orchard Road shopping belt, where most of the residences enjoy freehold status. The 10 Evelyn condo is no exception.
The developer for the former is Amara Holdings, and the architect is the famed W Architect, who have made a name for themselves in designing high end luxury projects, many of them in similar upscale neighbourhoods such as Nassim Hill. For the Amo Residences condo, the architect is not known yet.
Another attractive feature of the 10 Evelyn condo and the Amo Residences launch, are their convenience to amenities, quite apart from their proximity to the biggest shopping district in Singapore at Orchard Road itself. In the immediate vicinity of the first project are 3 major shopping centres that are within walkable distance: namely at Square 2, Velocity, and United Square. In fact, United Square is actually less than 5 minutes walk away, if you cut through Surrey Road, after crossing Newton Road.
And finally, the 10 Evelyn condo is also within walking distance of 2 MRT stations, as it is sited almost midway between them. The Newton interchange station is roughly 7 minutes walk away, while the Novena MRT station is perhaps 8 minutes walk up Newton Road. It is incidentally, also where Square 2 and Velocity are located. Quite apart from the couple of very good boys schools within a 1km radius, not to mention the other good girls schools slightly further away. So really, 10 Evelyn does seem to have everything going for it. All that remains to be seen is the price.
Whereas the AMO Residences launch has the advantage of being in the HDB township of Ang Mo Kio, which is popular among upgraders from this area. It also enjoys being within a short walk, less than 5 minutes, from Mayflower MRT station on the new Thomson-East Coast Line, that is due to be completed by 2023.
While 10 Evelyn has recently TOPed, the AMO Residences launch will only take place around mid 2022. This project is being developed by United Venture Development, which is a collaboration of Kheng Leong, UOL, and Singapore Land Group. All of which are very reputable, almost brand-name developers.
