The 450 homes at Martin Modern will have more than 80 per cent of the land area set aside for a unique botanic garden, an arboretum showcasing native trees and vegetation.

It will house collections of more than 200 species of plants and more than 50 species of trees and palms, including the native ones like the jelutong, meranti and chengal.

A rare majestic tree with distinct buttress roots that used to be found on site, the ficus variegata that can grow to a height of 30m, will be re-introduced in the condominium project.

Upcoming District 9 condo to stir buying interest?

Martin Modern will be well-received as the high-end residential market seems to be bottoming.  Non-landed private home prices in the core central region (CCR) were down 10.3% as at 31 March from a peak in the first quarter of 2013.


The District 9 project, Martin Modern is likely to interest local and foreign buyers if GuocoLand can price the units correctly.

Foreigners demand for Singapore properties is also recovering, which bodes well for core central region properties.

GuocoLand announced that the 450-unit Martin Modern in Martin Place will comprise two- to four- bedroom apartments across two 30-storey towers.

The average unit size in Martin Modern will be 1,067sqft which is bigger than Cairnhill Nine, which is a 99-year leasehold project off the Orchard Road shopping belt that sold like hot cakes when released in March 2016.

The developer is confident about the 99-year-leasehold project, partly due to the recent robust sales at its Leedon Residence.

Many buyers in the market take a view that the high-end property segment offers very good value now.

  • River Valley Primary School
  • St. Margaret’s Primary School
  • Alexandra Primary School
  • Anglo-Chinese (Junior)
  • Zhangde Primary School

Optimistic Outlook

The limited fresh supply of new condo project in District 9 is likely to brighten Martin Modern condo.  In addition, the collective sales / en-bloc sales are almost impossible to be done in District 9.

Furthermore, prices of high-end condominiums seem to be bottoming out, after having corrected for about 4 years. When the demand in the prime market recovers, plus the shortage in supply, hence prices could shoot up again.

If this statement turns out to be right, GuocoLand could actually make a bigger profit by waiting for a few years before launching its Martin Place condo on the market.

However, adopting a longer-term strategy comes with a risk, there may have external factors which could trigger another property downturn.  GuocoLand has to complete the project and sell all the units by 30 June 30 2021 to avoid 15% additional buyer’s stamp duty (ABSD) on the purchase price of the residential site.

Anyway, GuocoLand was not alone in the Martin Place land sale bid.  There are total 13 bids in the tender.
