The Quartz, located at Sengkang in District 19, is a 99-year leasehold condominium developed by GuocoLand Limited. It comprises 625 residential units across nine 17-, 18- and 19-storey towers. Not only is this property close to the train station, it offers an impressive range of facilities and unrivaled accessibility. Let’s discover more!

4 Reasons Why The Quartz Is an Ideal Home:

1. Specifications and Perks for Own Stay

Project Name Tenure TOP Unit Type (up to) Size in sqft Average Price PSF (up to)
The Quartz 99-year leasehold 2010 3-bedroom 1,033 – 1,518 $1,066.33

The Quartz comes with three-bedroom apartments of different sizes, making it appealing for families. The largest apartment is quite spacious at 1,518 sqft. But you won’t need to stay indoors all the time. Work out with a view at the unique sky terrace and landscaped decks with fitness club, yoga corner, and outdoor gym.

Want to take a dip with your kids? You have a choice of four pools: a classic swimming pool, spa pool, bubble pool, and children’s pool. Fancy a friendly tennis match? There are two courts at your disposal. Throw memorable events for your loved ones at the floating clubhouse.

2. Accessibility and Amenities

The nearest train station is Buangkok MRT Station on the North East Line (NEL), which is a five-minute walk away. The Quartz is accessible via Punggol Road and Upper Serangoon Road. It would take you about 18 minutes to drive to the Central Business District (CBD) and 15 minutes to Orchard Road.

A myriad of amenities are available near The Quartz, from shopping malls (Compass Point, Hougang Green, Hougang Mall, Rivervale Mall, NEX Shopping Mall) to food establishments (Kovan 209 Food Centre, Chomp Chomp Food Centre, Punggol East Container Park). These offer plenty of options for your dinner or shopping plans.

Relish what nature has to offer at Punggol Park while you jog or stroll around the 5-hectare pond in the park. Feeling adventurous? Venture beyond the park and explore the scenic views of Lorong Halus Wetland and Sengkang Riverside Park through the North Eastern Riverine Loop.

3. Education and Healthcare

Parents can choose from several schools within walking distance of The Quartz. They are Punggol Primary School (256m), North Vista Primary School (318m), and Palm View Primary School (489m). Other schools within the vicinity are Pei Hwa Secondary School, Nan Chiau Primary School, Nan Chiau High School, Anchor Green Primary School, Compassvale Primary School, Compassvale Secondary School, and CHIJ St. Joseph Convent School.

Healthcare institutions such as Bright Vision Hospital, Sengkang General and Community Hospital, Mount Alvernia Hospital, and Tan Tock Seng Hospital are less than 15 minutes’ drive away from the condominium.

4. Property Price and Future Developments

The price of The Quartz’s three-bedroom unit (1,141 sqft) high-level floor, in the past three years:

  • January to December 2017 – up to $1,070,000
  • January to December 2018 – up to $1,095,000
  • January to December 2019 – up to $1,115,000

Since 2017, property rental prices at The Quartz 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.
