2. Accessibility and Amenities

The nearest train station is Queenstown MRT Station on the East West Line (EWL), just a four-minute walk away. Accessible via Jalan Bukit Merah and Alexandra Road, it would take you about 14 minutes to drive to the Central Business District (CBD) and Orchard Road.

You have a choice of malls to head to for your grocery shopping and basic necessities: Queenstown Shopping Centre, IKEA, Dawson Place, AnchorPoint Mall, Valley Point, and Great World City. The condominium is also car-friendly, with two petrol stations located close by.

3. Education 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. There are three childcare centres, three kindergartens, and a primary school (Queenstown Primary School) within a 500m radius. Other nearby schools include Crescent Girls’ School, Queenstown Secondary School, Queensway Secondary School, ISS International School, and Global Indian International School.

Leave your health care worries at the door. Queens’ nearest hospitals are the Alexandra Hospital and National University Hospital (NUH), a mere 6-minute drive from the property.

4. Property Price and Future Developments

The price of a three-bedroom apartment (1,195 sqft) on Queens’ low-level floor, in the past two years:

  • January to December 2018 – up to $1,408,800
  • January to December 2019 – up to $1,530,000

Since 2018, property rental prices at Queens 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.
