Accompanying them are sports facilities such as a tennis court, sky gymnasium, half basketball court, aerobic and yoga room, table tennis court, outdoor fitness station, jogging track, and even a golf practice corner.

The rooftop garden complements the urban-natural scenery of the development, offering a handful of spots for you to relax and unwind after a long day. Other facilities include a library, function room, karaoke rooms, band and piano rooms, pool table, games room, and more.

2. Accessibility, Amenities, and Recreational Spots

The nearest train station is Simei MRT Station on the East West Line (EWL), which is a five-minute walk away. It is close to four expressways: East Coast Parkway (ECP), Pan Island Expressway (PIE), Tampines Expressway (TPE), and Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE). It would take you about 20 minutes to drive to the Central Business District (CBD) and 18 minutes to Orchard Road.

Head down to the nearest mall, Eastpoint Mall, if you need to do grocery shopping or get basic necessities. Surrounded by multiple towns like Changi, Tampines, and Bedok, Double Bay Residences’ location gives you an impressive range of dining and shopping options. You also have access to high-end shopping centres and entertainment avenues like Jewel Changi Airport, Changi City Point, Century Square, Tampines 1, and Tampines Mall. The closest recreational spot would be in Changi, where there is the beach, park, and chalets.

3. Education, Employment, and Healthcare

Double Bay Residences is close to several schools and colleges. There are eight childcare centres, a kindergarten, and two schools, Changkat Primary School (466m) and Changkat Changi Secondary School (359m). These are all less than 500m away, so your little one can get to school in less than five minutes. Other nearby educational institutions include Metta School, Ngee Ann Secondary School, Chongzheng Primary School, Pasir Ris Primary School, and Singapore University of Technology and Design.

The condominium complex is strategically located close to Changi Airport (10-minute drive), Changi Business Park (six-minute drive), Tampines Central (10-minute drive), and Pasir Ris Wafer Fab Park (14-minute drive) – which is going through an expansion – resulting in more jobs closer to home and an increase in potential tenants. Need to see a doctor? The nearest hospitals are Changi General Hospital and St. Andrew’s Community Hospital, a seven-minute drive from the property.

4. Property Price and Future Developments

The price of a three-bedroom apartment (1,453 sqft) on Double Bay Residences’ low-level floor, in the past three years:

  • January to December 2017 – up to $1,340,000
  • January to December 2018 – up to $1,380,000
  • January to December 2019 – up to $1,425,000

Since 2017, property rental prices at Double Bay Residences have been increasing. We can foresee the price rising over the years, thanks to upcoming developments like new amenities, community spaces, improved connectivity, industrial hubs, and recreational facilities.
