London's One The Elephant to launch here

By Romesh Navaratnarajah: A new landmark residential development in London's prime zone 1 neighbourhood will be launched in Singapore on 12 to 13 January, said developer Lend Lease.

Called One The Elephant (pictured), the project will comprise 284 studio to three-bedroom units within a 37-storey tower and four-storey pavilion. Apartments in the first release will be sold from £322,500 (S$640,430) onwards.

"Property in London offers buyers in Asia a level of stability and returns that few other markets can rival. The foundations of the Central London residential market are robust with a continued shortage of stock available and high levels of demand," said Mark Dickinson, Managing Director of Development at Lend Lease.

Designed by Squire and Partners, the modern looking One The Elephant is expected to play an important role in efforts to redevelop the Elephant & Castle area.

Moreover, the project is located close to two underground train lines that provide easy access to notable locations and attractions. It also offers scenic views of London's skyline. Residents can enjoy facilities such as a function room, 24-hour concierge service, space for bicycles and electric car charge ports.

Lend Lease is no stranger to Singapore, having helped in the delivery and subsequent management of Jem in Jurong Gateway. Romesh Navaratnarajah, Senior Editor of PropertyGuru, wrote this story.

    Nissan tests self-cleaning paint that could make car washes obsolete

    During this vile, never-ending winter, motorists had three options to keep their cars clean: Shell out on regular car washes; slave away in the cold, wind and snow washing it yourself, or screw it and just drive a dirty car. I, like many, chose the last option. But if only I'd been able to test Nissan's self-cleaning car, all my troubles would have washed away.

    I tendered my resignation without securing the next job. Here’s why I don’t mind.

    I have committed a taboo – I have tendered my resignation without securing the next job. The reactions to the announcement were varied but they all pretty much hint at a deep sense of disapproval. “Why did you do that?” It was as if I had renounced my faith. “What are you going to do from now on?” Almost as though a misfortune had incapacitated me. “What does your family have to say about it?” As if I had offered to cook for the next family dinner. I was, and still am, certain of my reasons and motivations for the resignation. However the response I received got me thinking about why people are so concerned about the gaps in their careers. The developed world evolved from an agricultural economy to an industrial economy to the service age, then to the knowledge economy in the late 1990s and 2000s marked by breakthroughs in technological innovations and competition for innovation with new products and processes that develop from the research community. According to The Work Foundation, the knowledge economy is driven by the demand for higher value added goods and services created by more sophisticated, more discerning, and better educated consumers and ...
