4-bedder at Lentor Modern sold for S$3.41m; record price for District 26

Another day, another record sale.

Earlier this month, a 4-bedroom unit at Lentor Modern was sold for S$3,413,000, setting a record price for condos in District 26 (Mandai, Upper Thomson).

This also means the price is the current all-time high for the new launch condo.

Unit is located on the top floor

There are a few possible factors contributing to the record price.

For starters, Lentor Modern is the first condo launched in the Lentor estate in more than two decades. It’s the first of the seven residential land parcels in the housing estate sold under the government land sales (GLS). For years, the estate has predominantly been a landed housing estate.

Launched in September 2022, Lentor Modern is the only integrated development in the area with a direct connection to Lentor MRT and a mall. The mall is slated to comprise around 50 shops, including a 12,000 sqft supermarket, restaurants and a 10,000 sqft childcare centre.

Meanwhile, the record-setting 4-bedroom unit is among the biggest units in the development, spanning 1,528 sqft. This works out to a price psf of around S$2,234.

More importantly, the unit is located on the top floor, offering its new owners unblocked views of the landed housing estate.

For the owners of the record-breaking Lentor Modern unit sale, a bigger size unit may be one of their priorities than just price. A 4-bedroom unit at Lentor Modern spans a floor area of 1,528 sqft.

There’s also the mall and Lentor MRT as it’s an integrated development, which may have contributed to the record sale as well.
