During GEM Residences 1st launch on 28th May 2016, some 300 units was sold at an average of $1,426 p.s.f.

GEM Residences is now launching its second phase. Will they sell out in a few days amidst a softer market?

It is hard to tell, but this condominium does have something going for it. It is one of only a few rare launches within a mature estate such as Toa Payoh.

Not only are condominiums merely a pool, some sporting facilities and buildings. Soft facilities and amenities are equally important.

Also it does come with some amenities such as Free Concierge Services, Pet Pool, Free medical consultation, Complimentary classes, IT Support, Free internet connection, IT Support, Share (Free Petrol Top-up) and Housekeeping, Dry cleaning & Laundry, Grocery and Food delivery, Edible garden, Smart Parcel Locker. This does seem like a service condominium suite.
