What are the perks of living by the waterfront? You get to enjoy the tranquility of the environment, and of course, the breathtaking view. But what makes Costa Rhu stand out from other waterfront properties? It offers unrivaled connectivity to the central areas of Singapore while still maintaining a serene atmosphere. Moreover, great amenities are within reach too. Let’s find out what this 99-year leasehold condominium located at 1 to 9 Rhu Cross has to offer.

4 Reasons Why Costa Rhu Is Ideal for Families and Working Professionals:

1. Specifications and Perks for Own Stay

Costa Rhu’s impeccable design is inspired by European architecture. It is 18 storeys high and has a total of 737 units. You will be in awe of the panoramic views of the city skyline. Love a spacious apartment? Look no further, as Costa Rhu’s two-bedroom apartment goes up to 1,485 sqft. Most of the units in Costa Rhu come with marble-clad flooring in the living room, dining room, and bathrooms.

Costa Rhu offers a wide range of facilities which support an active and healthy lifestyle. You can take a dip in the swimming pools or work out at the gymnasium. Stay fit with sports like l badminton, basketball, cricket, golf, squash, and tennis at their respective courts. Planning to host parties? Not a problem; you can do so at the clubhouse or multi-purpose rooms. Planning family activities is a breeze.

2. Accessibility, Amenities and Recreational Spots

Stadium MRT Station along the CBD-friendly Circle Line is the nearest transport network, a mere 1.5km away from the condominium. You can take a nine-minute bus to the train station at the opposite bus stop. Vehicle owners, you’ll be glad to know that the Central Business District (Suntec City and Raffles Place) and Orchard Road is less than 18 minutes away.

Everything you need is right at your doorstep. Costa Rhu is a veritable mini-town complete with a restaurant, mini-mart, child learning centre, hair salon, laundry, and dry cleaning shop. However, if you’re wondering where else to dine and shop, there are several shopping malls within 1.1km, including Leisure Park Kallang (1.01 km) and Kallang Wave Mall (1.02 km). Other nearby malls include Parkway Parade, 112 Katong, Katong Shopping Centre, City Plaza, Golden Mile Complex Mall, and Tanjong Katong Complex and Shopping Centre.

Thinking about spending a fun day outdoors? Take a leisurely stroll on the walkway to Gardens By The Bay or head to People’s Association PAssion WaVe (PAWV), where there’s a range of land and water sports activities like sports climbing, abseiling, kayaking, sailing, dragon boating, windsurfing, and power boating. Love the sand, sea, and sun? East Coast Park is a short 6-minute drive away. Other places to explore on foot are Singapore Sports Hub (1.2 km) and Marina Bay Golf Course (200 m).

3. Schools and Healthcare

The development makes a great place to live for local and international families with children as there are plenty of schools within the surrounding area. These schools are all within a 15-minute drive: Dunman High School (4 minutes), Insworld Institute (11 minutes), Canadian International School (11 minutes), Stamford Primary School (12 minutes), and St. Margaret’s Primary School (15 minutes).

When it comes to medical concerns, you need not worry as driving to these healthcare institutions takes less than 15 minutes: Raffles Hospital (12 minutes), Parkway East Hospital (14 minutes), and Kallang Polyclinic (14 minutes).

4. Property Price and Future Developments

The price of Costa Rhu’s two-bedroom unit in the past three years:

  • January to December 2017 – up to $1,620,000
  • January to December 2018 – up to $1,650,000
  • January to December 2019 – up to $1,700,000

Since 2017, the property price at Costa Rhu has been increasing. We can foresee the price rising over the years, thanks to upcoming developments like more amenities, recreational facilities, community spaces, and public transportation options.
