Market watchers told Channel NewsAsia that pricing and location remain key factors in closing home sales. Projects designed by world-renowned architects may also boost sales volume.

Mr Nicholas Mak, Executive Director for Research & Consultancy at SLP International Property Consultants, cited prime locations near Orchard Road and Paterson Road as an example, noting that top-end architects may not be required for such projects.

Condominiums in the heartlands would also likely not require such architects, since mass market home-buyers are deemed to be very price sensitive and are only looking at affordability.

Mr Mak said, “Most of the iconic architecture tends to be within the city fringe area and they may want to command a price higher than other competing projects within the neighbourhood.”

An example of such a project is Sky Habitat at Bishan Central, the most recent designer condominium to be completed. The 99-year leasehold development commanded launch prices between S$1,650 and S$1,750 per square foot (psf) in April 2012, competing with condominiums located in the city.

In June last year however, median transacted prices were approximately S$1,340 psf. About 140 units remained unsold as of June 2015.
