Always wanted to live near the city while being in a culturally rich neighbourhood? With Sturdee Residences, you can. Developed by Sustained Land Pte Ltd, this 99-year leasehold condominium in District 08, is located in the heart of a rejuvenated precinct that stretches from Jalan Besar to Kampong Glam, Ophir and Rochor. Although existing areas are being rejuvenated, the heritage places found there will be retained such as the area’s sporting heritage.

4 Reasons to Choose Sturdee Residences for Your Next Property Investment:

1. Rental Price Increase

Singapore’s overall rents for condos in the Rest of Central Region (RCR) increased by 2.8% and the country’s rental prices increased on a year-on-year basis as of Q3 2019.

The monthly rental of a 3-bedroom apartment in Sturdee Residences can go up to $5,100 while the nearby condominiums, Sturdee View is $4,000 and Kerrisdale is $4,500 for the same number of rooms. This is definitely good news for landlords, considering its strategic location and the number of upcoming developments within proximity such as the Ophir-Rochor corridor.

2. Higher Tenant Demand

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

The Ophir-Rochor corridor will be a mixed-use district featuring offices, hotels and residences, connecting the established commercial node at Marina Centre to future developments along Rochor Canal and Bukit Timah Canal. More offices equals more job opportunities which results in the increase need for housing.

3. Increase in Property Prices

What factors may contribute to these competitive rental rates and increase in property prices in and near Sturdee Residences?

Transportation and Accessibility

Farrer Park MRT Station is only five minutes away from Sturdee Residences. Being on the North East Line, it is connected to both Downtown Line (one stop to Little India) and North South Line (two stops down to Dhoby Ghaut).

If you’re on the road, the Central Business District is a six-minute drive via the Central Expressway (CTE). There is also a bus stop close to the development, with routes serving many areas of the island.

Future Developments within Jalan Besar / Rochor

The places that will be retained will be integrated with future housing so the community can bond over sports and recreational activities. They consist of Farrer Park Swimming Pool (which was former national swimmer Ang Peng Siong’s eponymous swim school), Farrer Park boxing gym (where former Olympic boxer Syed Abdul Kadir was trained) and the sports field (where football legends, Dollah Kassim, Quah Kim Song and R. Suriamurthi, were groomed).

Jalan Besar is also undergoing a transformation and will emerge as an urbanised district by 2020.

Joining the Ophir-Rochor corridor, Guoco Midtown (estimated date of completion is first half of 2022) is set to jazz up Beach Road. This $2.4billion project will be built into a mega mixed-use development, as a work-live-play hot spot near the Central Business District. The one million sq ft space will comprise a 30-storey office block, a residential tower with more than 200 units and a range of public spaces.

Recent developments in the area include integrated projects Duo as well as South Beach. The 42-year-old Shaw Tower (estimated date of completion is first half of 2023), next to Midtown, is being redeveloped and expanded from 260,000 sq ft to 400,000 sq ft, into a 35-storey Grade A office and retail building.

Kampong Bugis, the site of the former Kallang Gasworks plant, which borders the prime waterfront along the Kallang Basin will be transformed into a car-lite waterfront community with 4,000 homes by 2030.


Mount Elizabeth Hospital (eight minutes), KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital (12 minutes), Kwong Wai Shiu Hospital (13 minutes) and Farrer Park Hospital (14 minutes) are the closest healthcare institutions, which you can reach within minutes by car.


Sturdee Residences is great for families with children as there are plenty of schools that are within reasonable driving distance (10-minute drive). They are preschools, primary and secondary schools such as MindChamps PreSchool, MY World @ Boon Keng, Farrer Park Primary School, Stamford Primary School, Bendemeer Secondary School and Northlight School.
