The Bayshore: Effortless Resort Living Along Upper East Coast Road

Ohmyhome

Ohmyhome

If you have never heard of The Bayshore (which is unlikely), it is one of the popular condominiums in the east side of Singapore. This international award-winning development located along Upper East Coast Road and Bayshore Road is known for its luxurious tropical resort setting and wide range of excellent amenities.

Developed by Far East Organization, The Bayshore located in District 16, is located at a decently convenient spot where you can get to the airport in nine minutes and the city in 19 minutes via a vehicle.

4 Reasons to Choose The Bayshore for Your Next Property Investment:

1. Rental Price Increase

Singapore’s overall rents for condos in the Outside Central Region (OCR) increased by 2.9% and the country’s rental prices increased on a year-on-year basis as of Q3 2019.

The monthly rental of a three-bedroom apartment in The Bayshore can go up to $3,500 while the nearby condominiums, Costa Del Sol is $5,100 and Bayshore Park Condo is $3,700 for the same number of rooms. This is definitely good news for tenants and buyers, considering the upcoming developments within close proximity such as the two new Thomson-East Coast Line stations, walking paths and cycling networks.

2. Higher Tenant Demand

In 2019, there are 2% more foreigners which contributed to the private property rental market.

According to URA in TODAY, “The proposals for Bayshore precinct shall thus capitalise on the existing greenery and transport connections to create an attractive living environment, with emphasis on environmental sustainability, car-lite strategies and a strong sense of community”.

3. Increase in Property Prices

What factors may contribute to these competitive rental and sales rates in and near The Bayshore?

Transportation and Accessibility

Although there are no nearby train stations yet (Siglap and Bayshore MRT stations of the Thomson-East Coast Line, will be completed in 2024), there’s a five-minute shuttle bus service to Bedok MRT Station. If you’re on the road, the closest expressway is East Coast Parkway (ECP) where you’re able to go to places such as the Central Business District, Changi Airport, Orchard Road and more, easily.

Future Developments within the East of Singapore

Aside from the new train stations, there will be more community spaces, facilities, and fun options at East Coast Park. Also, with future plans like the development of Terminal 5 (estimated date of completion 2030) where there will be a station on the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) and the relocation of Paya Lebar Airbase where there will be “new homes, new offices, new factories, new parks, new living environments, new communities”.

So when there are more commercial setups, there would be more job opportunities and higher demand in housing.

Healthcare

Parkway East Hospital, Changi General Hospital and Bedok Polyclinic are the closest healthcare institutions, taking less than 10 minutes by car.

Education

The Bayshore makes a great home for local and foreign families with children as there are plenty of schools nearby. They are preschools, primary and secondary schools such as Alphabet Playhouse @ East Coast, Good Shepherd Convent Kindergarten, Temasek Primary and Secondary School, Victoria School. International schools (Rosemount International School and Sekolah Indonesia) are also in the area.

The beach is like your backyard with East Coast Beach being just a five-minute walk away via a covered underground tunnel. If you’re an avid golfer, Laguna National Golf & Country Club is seven minutes drive away via car. There are a handful of shopping malls such as Parkway Parade, Siglap Shopping Centre, Katong 112 Shopping Mall, Bedok Mall and Bedok Point.

You won’t have to worry about food options as they are countless. You can find local hawker food and fast food at the beach.
