Poiz Residences has sold out completely. So what happens if you like this location but missed that boat? The good news is… another new project, called The Addition, is launching just opposite Poiz. And even better, this one is freehold.
But The Addition condo will be a much smaller development. Just 26 units, so it should sell out quite quickly. Especially since it will enjoy the same surrounding amenities that make Poiz so appealing. Such as the fact that it is within 5 minutes walk of St Andrews Village and St Andrews school, both the primary and secondary sections.
As well as all the shops, and coffeeshops, an atelier and food centre and Fairprice supermarket around the corner. And the Addition condo will also get the benefit of the 77 shops and 7 restaurants in the Poiz Centre itself, which will complete construction by next year 2019. Not forgetting the new Venue shoppes across the road, next to Tai Thong Crescent that has been long famous for its street food.
Transport-wise, it has the rare advantage of being a freehold development within less than 4 minutes walk from the Potong Pasir MRT station, most of it under cover once you cross Meyappa Chettiar Road, and walk by way of the Poiz Centre sidewalk. This place is also pretty close to exit points to get onto the KPE (Kallang Paya Lebar Expressway), the CTE (Central Expressway), and the PIE (Pan Island Expressway).
The only possible drawback about the Addition condo, is its size. Because it is not a big development, it does not have lots of facilities. You only get the main ones, like a lap pool, in this case located at the elevated facilities deck. There will be parking, but as in the case of all new developments near MRT stations, the number of car park spaces is less than the number of units. Historically it has been found that condominiums generally only use about 70% of their car spaces, and even less in those projects near MRT stations.
So if you don’t mind a small development that has everything else going for it, like the fact that it has freehold tenure, a good school 2 doors away, a shopping mall across the road, a supermarket and food centres within 5 minutes walk, then you might want to book a viewing of the Addition showflat. This project is by Oxley Topaz Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Oxley Holdings. Will be looking to launch in August / September 2018.
