Future developments earmarked by government

Key development areas identified by the government are often viewed as great investment opportunities for homeowners. Properties in these areas have shown growth in property value in anticipation of the upcoming developments.

According to the URA Master Plan, Growth Areas identified include the City Centre and Paya Lebar Central (PLC). The already bustling City Centre continues to develop with extensive plans mapped out for new waterfront developments in the CBD located at Marina Bay and Marina South.

In 2016, a new landmark arises in Tanjong Pagar Centre, gateway to the future Greater Southern Waterfront. On the other hand, PLC is tagged as a major sub-regional commercial node, well served by 2 MRT lines (Circle and East-West lines). Authorities have laid out extensive developmental plans over the next decade for PLC, and strategically located between these two Growth Areas is Sims Urban Oasis.

Affordable City fringe living with remarkable convenience

Accessibility is arguably one of the most important criteria when choosing a home. Sims Urban Oasis is a prime city-fringe residential development situated within 1 MRT stop to Paya Lebar Central, 3 MRT stops to Bugis and 5 MRT stops to Raffles Place.

For those who drive or prefer travelling by cab, it is well connected to expressways which bring you to the CBD or Orchard Road within 12 minutes. Frequent travellers can reach the airport in less than 20 minutes by car or hop directly aboard the East-West MRT line.

Located in the Rest of Central Region (RCR), Sims Urban Oasis’ proximity to City Centre and easy accessibility is ideal for modern urbanites with busy schedules. With prices currently going from only $1,300 psf*, it offers great affordability and serves both as a wonderful location for a home as well as for a property investment.

Quality educational institutes in the vicinity

One of the key reasons of relocation for families has been for the quest for quality education. Being next to a quality institution is bound to open up a huge potential for future buyers or tenants. In 2018, Nexus International School Singapore will open their new campus right next door to Sims Urban Oasis, just 300m away. Nexus was awarded the new campus site by the Economic Development Board as part of their expansion plan to cater for growing demand.

Another established international institution, James Cook University campus located at Sims Drive was recently opened by the then Australia Prime Minister, Mr Tony Abbott in June 2015. Together with the highly ranked Geylang Methodist Primary School, which is within 1km to Sims Urban Oasis, access to quality education is a stone’s throw away.

Even adults can take advantage of the numerous learning opportunities available at the WDA Lifelong Learning Institute at PLC. Be it education for the young, working or retired, the area around the condominium has all the educational institutions that cater to learning needs.

Such convenience of quality education makes Sims Urban Oasis an excellent rental choice for students studying in these institutes, as well as for families with school-going children.

The rental of choice

On top of being an ideal residence for families, Sims Urban Oasis is identified as a preeminent choice for expatriates looking for rental units.
