MONEY MIND program (March 2019): “Living the High Life in the CBD”
I stay in a modest apartment in the CBD myself. Every evening, I walk 3.5km around the Marina Bay, and see hordes of tourists enjoying themselves. And I always wonder to myself: Why are Singaporeans not enjoying themselves here?
In many global cities around the world, living in the financial district is a privilege and will cost a bomb, but uniquely in Singapore, you can still get a good unit at many D1, D2 and D7 properties for the same price — in terms of psf — as some new condo launches in the outlying suburbs!
