Did you know Singapore is ranked as expats’ 2nd favourite global destination to live and work, only behind Switzerland? According to HSBC’s Expat 2019 Global Report, Singapore ranked 6th for living, 7th for aspiration and 1st for those with little ones.
Coupled with Singapore being the gateway to the rest of Asia on the business front with many Multinational Corporations (MNC) setting up their Asian offices here, it’s no wonder that will choose to reside here on our sunny shores.
So if you’re joining us here in Singapore – be it on a temporary or permanent basis, one of the first things you’ll need to get sorted is a place to call home. And with that, you’ll want a house that will fit in with your current lifestyle, whether you’re single or have kids.
With there being so many options on the market, here are our top two newly launched development picks for you to consider should you choose to reside in Singapore!
When you’re new to a country, figuring how to get around will be one of the biggest challenges standing in your way. Well lucky for you, traveling around Singapore is about as easy as it gets with the multiple modes of affordable public transportation easily available to the public.
So if you’re after ultimate convenience, you’ll want to consider Marina One Residences, where you will be located less than 500m to three MRT stations so you will be able to get around and explore the nation with much ease.
Another major plus point is that the 1,042-unit luxurious integrated development is located at right in the heart of Singapore’s CBD, which means you will be able to get to work very easily (if your office is here of course). Of course, it helps that you’ll be able to enjoy killer views of the city right from your home.
You’ll also be surrounded by some of Singapore’s favourite attractions such as Marina Bay Sands, Gardens by the Bay, Esplanade and the ArtScience Museum.
Whether you’re single and ready to mingle, or you have a lovely family, you’ll want to consider One Holland Village Residences as your home in Singapore. Located in the highly sought after District 10 area and right beside one of Singapore’s go-to places in Holland Village, you’ll be living in a thriving location where you can enjoy multiple F&B establishments from bars to cafes, cheap hawker delights (best way to immerse yourself in Singapore is by enjoying our local fare!) and several lifestyle activities.
Choose from various apartment options in this mixed-use development. Here you have:
- Sereen, which is a 34-storey tower with 21 one to three-bedroom units
- Leven, which is a three-storey tower with roof terrace development that consists of 21 two-bedroom units, OR

This housing option is perfect for those with children seeing as One Holland Residences is close to one of SEA’s top international schools in United World College SEA. If you prefer a local option, you may want to consider top schools such as Nanyang Primary, Anglo-Chinese School (Independent) and Anglo-Chinese Junior College.
Accessibility is always a key consideration and here, you’ll be close to Holland Village MRT. This location will be perfect, especially if you’re working at the one-north business district, which is just a short two stops away.
