Why Buy 10 Evelyn Condo?

The nearest MRT Stations are Newton (Downtown Line and North-South Line), Novena (North-south Line) and Farrer Park (North-East Line) which are only about 8 minutes’ walk away and 3 minutes’ drive away. Knowing that you have the North-South Line, Downtown Line and North-East Line makes it so much convenient if you wish to travel to anywhere on these lines respectively. This saves you the trouble of transiting at stations with multiple lines like Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station.
For residents who prefer taking the bus, there are bus services along Newton Road and Dunearn Road. It is next beside Central Expressway (CTE). Residents will not face the problem of being trapped in a traffic jam as 10 Evelyn is located in a quiet part of the main road, at the heart of the city.
Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) states that more developments are coming underway to expand MRT network by year 2030. This means that more stations are connect to each other and will provide more convenience and more modes of transit or getting to your destination. For example, the Circle Line will be fully connected because of the building of tracks to connect the two end stations which are Harbourfront and Marina Bay MRT Stations together. This means that you will not have to transit lines at Marina Bay to the North-East line just to get to Harbourfront anymore. In addition to that, there is construction for Cross Island Line (CRL) where you are able to get travel easily from the West to the East of Singapore within a few stops. In other words, it is like an expressway underground. This also means less stops and faster travelling duration for people who lives in the heartlands of Singapore. One good news is that along CRL, Ang Mo Kio station will be included and it is only 3 stops away from Novena MRT Station. On top of that, the construction for Thomson East Coast Line is also on its way to completion. This will connect the Novena and Thomson area to the East side of Singapore together. This is great news for you because there will be many new developments coming up in the East area as well as the West area!

4. Access to all that you need

5. Benefits of a freehold development in Singapore
On top of all the great features of living in 10 Evelyn, residents can enjoy the advantages of a freehold development where residents do not have to be concerned about the deadline of their lease. It has a better upside potential because of the scarcity of land in Singapore where there will always be people looking to purchase freehold developments. Comparing it to the leasehold developments, its worth and value will decrease when the tenure of the plot of area reaches zero.
