According to URA Q4 2023 real estate statistics, residential non-landed private property prices rose 2.3% quarter-on-quarter (QoQ) after a 2.2% rise in Q3 2023. Dr Tan Tee Khoon, Country Manager – Singapore, PropertyGuru noted, “The gradual year-on-year (YoY) price increases, together with the fall in transaction volumes, indicate the possibility of prices meeting resistance and peaking soon.”
Amid uncertainty around rising property prices, inflation, and sustained high mortgage rates, “Buyers are becoming more judicious in their decisions. Nonetheless, some are still acting on properties that meet all their criteria,” Dr Tan added.

1. J’den: Amenity-rich Icon in the West of Singapore
J’den in Jurong East Central is one condo to look out for. The 99-year leasehold property with a modest 368 units will take over the site where iconic shopping mall JCube once stood for over a decade. While people have mixed feelings about this, many, too, anticipate this major new condo launch developed by CapitalLand Development.
Set to obtain its Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) in 2028, J’den will comprise a mix of 3-bedroom to 5-bedroom units, as well as penthouses. As a mixed-use condominium, the 40-storey-high project will also feature commercial space on its first two storeys. Future residents can enjoy the tranquillity of the upcoming Jurong Lake District (JLD), ride the incoming Jurong Region Line (JRL), and benefit from the range of amenities in what might be Singapore’s “second Central Business District”.

3. Watten House: Unique Mix of Freehold Luxury and Convenience in Central Singapore
Located in the upscale District 11, Watten House is the only Core Central Region (CCR) condo that made this list.

Developed by UOL Group and Singapore Land Group (SingLand), the expected TOP date is 2026, just two years from now.
In addition, Watten House is close to choice schools that include Chinese High, Hwa Chong Junior College, Singapore Chinese Girls’ School, and Anglo-Chinese School.
