Katong, home to many popular eateries, hipster cafes and bars, has a charm unlike any other neighbourhood in Singapore. What was once the location of many villas and mansions of the wealthy elite in the late 19th and mid 20th centuries, has now transformed into a vibrant neighbourhood steeped in heritage and culture.
The latest addition to Katong’s landscape is Marine Blue, a luxury freehold residential development launched by CapitaLand. The property, which comprises two sleek towers with 16 and 17 storeys respectively, was designed by Singapore-based architectural firm MKPL Architects.
The property’s price per square foot (PSF) ranges from S$1,037 to S$2,014, with units starting from S$1.1 million for a one-bedroom with a study. The 124 units range from 635 to 3,261 sq ft — with 74 one-bedroom with study units, 14 two-bedroom units, 28 exclusive loft suites with double-volume ceiling, four penthouses, and four pool terraces. The latter range from 3,670 to 3,993 sq ft, are come with private pools and private parking lots, as well as a private open deck terrace to promote outdoor living.
The development features amenities such as a beach-inspired party deck, spa pools, a 50-metre lap pool, a barbecue deck, gardens, playground and a clubhouse. Targeted at young professionals, couples and families, Marine Blue is located in a convenient spot just across Parkway Parade, and within proximity of malls such as 112 Katong, Katong V and Bedok Mall. What’s more, it is at the doorstep of the upcoming Marine Parade MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line.
It is also a stone’s throw away from East Coast Park and prestigious schools such as Tao Nan School, CHIJ (Katong) Primary School, Chung Cheng High School, and Tanjong Katong Girls’ School, as well as international schools such as Canadian International School, Chatsworth International School and Global Indian International School.
Marine Blue received its temporary occupation permit (TOP) in October last year.
