The Residences, W Sentosa property overview

Location of Residences, W Sentosa now available at 40% off launch priceNestled within CDL’s esteemed Quayside Collection, The Residences at W Singapore Sentosa Cove embodies luxury living. This integrated development not only features the residential enclave but also the renowned W Singapore-Sentosa Cove hotel and Quayside Isle, offering a seamless blend of sophistication and convenience.

Situated along the picturesque Ocean Way in Sentosa Cove, The Residences at W has 228 units with diverse layouts, ranging from cosy two-bedroom setups to spacious four-bedroom configurations. Completed in 2011, the development secured a 99-year lease from 2006, ensuring a substantial remaining tenure of 81 years.

Renowned for its prime location, The Residences at W stands out among Sentosa Cove’s exclusive offerings. Its close proximity to Quayside Isle, the marina, and the W Singapore – Sentosa Cove hotel ensures residents have access to a plethora of amenities and leisure options.

Beyond its location and investment potential, The Residences at W offers spacious units and a range of lifestyle amenities, setting a new standard for luxurious living. Catering to both owner-occupiers and investors, these features elevate the allure of the development. Moreover, the robust rental demand in Sentosa Cove, particularly for larger units, further enhances its appeal as an investment opportunity.

But that’s not all that makes this development and its discounted price point so appealing. 

It’s also worth noting the scarcity of luxury condo supply in Sentosa Cove. With only 10 condos totalling 1,766 units in the area, this limited availability enhances the investment potential of The Residences at W. With no new residential supply anticipated, the rarity of luxury condos underscores the allure of this exclusive enclave, promising potential for appreciation over time.

In fact, with only 58 out of the 203 units up for a discounted sale, future phases of The Residences at W may be released at slightly higher prices per square foot.

That said, why didn’t The Residences at W Sentosa sell well in the first place? 

Being a luxury condo in a prime location and developed by a reputable local developer, it makes sense that The Residences at W Sentosa should have sold out.

So why didn’t it? 

To begin with, the upscale property market in Singapore hit a rough patch back in 2011, largely due to the government’s cooling measures. These measures included imposing a hefty 18% property sales tax on foreigners and significant levies for those attempting to flip properties within the first or second year of purchase.

This combined with the money laundering scandal that emerged further affected the market, reducing buyers’ enthusiasm.

As a result, only 20 caveated transactions were recorded for the development between 2010 and 2023.
