Waterfront living is trending big time throughout the world’s fastest cities – London, New York, Manhattan, Shanghai (just to name a few); and as city-dwellers ourselves, we understand why it’s so insatiable to live by the “coast”. Waterfront living is not just an exclusive lifestyle, it is a sanity check – serving as the perfect escape from the constant hustle and bustle of city life in general.
In Singapore, the concept of waterfront living and lifestyle began with the unveil of the ultra-luxurious Sentosa Cove in 2004. Since then, more watertown initiatives have picked up momentum, with full-fledged projects being developed on the mainland in Marina South, Punggol, Bedok and the quaysides.
Here, we’ve picked out 5 new waterfront properties with some of the most amazing panoramic views for you to check out.
