Why Cairnhill Nine Sells

The Mystery Behind Cairnhill Nine’s Strong Sales Is No Mystery At All

  1. The ‘prime in the prime’ location, right at the heart of Orchard Road, right next to everything - Knightsbridge, The Heeren, Paragon, Mandarin Gallery, Mount Elizabeth, to name just a few.
  2. Mega rich Indonesians have zero resistance to super hot, high end properties. They love the feel of luxury. They love trophy penthouses. Wealth they have aplenty. They are just looking at where to allocate them. Cairnhill Nine clearly demonstrated that. 30% of Cairnhill Nine buyers were foreigners. And some if not all of these $5M - $6M penthouses have been added to their collections.
  3. Attractive to buyers at both ends of the spectrum: the penthouses at the upper end – all 8 units have been sold. The 1- and 2-bedders at the bottom end – affordable price quantum, promising rentals and easy to let out - guarantee sales.
  4. Critical Pricing – you want to sell it, price it right.  “At an average price of $2,500 psf or a price of under $3 million for over half of the Cairnhill Nine units is an "attractive" price point for an address like Cairnhill," - RHB Research analyst Ivan Looi.
  5. Unique Condotel Concept allow home owners to benefit from hotel concierge services from neighbouring Ascott Orchard Singapore.
  6. Cheaper than nearby properties. The Laurels transacted at $2,826 psf in 2010.
  7. Cairnhill Nine comes with more goodies. The developer provides quality fittings and interior design in the living room for 1-2 bedrooms plus guest units.

Orchard Road Highlights

Ask any locals or tourists and you will soon find out why Orchard Road is so popular.

Just a century and a half ago, in the mid1800s, it was a mere plantation ground for nutmeg, pepper and fruit orchards.

Now, Singapore's famous shopping district is like the Ginza of Japan, a maze of haute couture shopping malls, entertainment centres, restaurants and bistros.


Quick Guide:

Tanglin Mall, patronised by expatriates and professionals, is located at the junction of Tanglin Road and Grange Road. Anchor tenants like Tasty Food Court offers up to 15 varieties of local cuisine. There is also a gourmet supermarket, a bakery and Tanglin Market Place.

Ion Orchard is the icon of Orchard Road. It is a super high end shoppers paradise. It carries the world’s best loved flagship brands. The total lettable area is approximately 660,000 sq ft. The ION Orchard Tourist Wallet allows you to shop in one place for all you want and pay for all you need. Expect to pay.

Goodwood Park Hotel along Scotts Road is a fine specimen of colonial architecture, while Tangs is the first upmarket department store in Singapore.

Emerald Hill is a cluster of highly sought after habitats where the rich Chinese originally set up their houses. Some of these rare terrace houses, now under conservation, date back to 1902. Some buildings feature art-deco around 1925 era. Some even have elaborate Chinese-style gate entrances. A cluster of bars housed in fetching shophouse renovations can be found at the Orchard Rd end of Emerald Hill.

Centrepoint’s Cold Storage supermarket nearby Emerald Hill, is possibly the oldest surviving business establishment in the area.

The Istana, the official residence and office of the President of Singapore, sits alongside a short stretch of Orchard Road nearer to the Dhoby Ghaut MRT station.

Singapore Botanic Gardens is a 74-hectare botanics of rainforest, horticulture and parks.
It is valued for having two outstanding universal qualities - its role in the rubber trade which transformed the region in the 1900s and its unique tropical colonial gardens landscape.
Awarded the prestigious Unesco World Heritage site status in July 2015, Singapore Botanic Gardens now joins two others - the 1759 Royal Botanic Gardens in Kew, England, and the 1545 Orto botanico di Padova in Padua, Italy, on the Unesco list.

The Botanical Garden is served by three entrances - the Tanglin Gate, Nassim Gate and Cluny Park Gate.


Ngee Ann City
The S$520 million Ngee Ann City with 2 office towers was officially opened on 21 September 1993 by then Prime Minister, Goh Chok Tong. 

The ever popular Takashimaya occupies 6 floors of one tower, taking up approximately 200,000 sq ft of commercial space.
In 2013, the Takashimaya group invested more than $10 million in store refurbishment since its opening in August 1993 – which accounted for its continuing success, despite the onslaught of competition from new malls, speciality stores and online shopping.
Takashimaya thrives, 20 years and counting.
The place attracts international tourists and foodies with its gourmet outlets, popular Japanese restaurants and wide array of branded merchandise and speciality outlets.
There is also the Civic Plaza in Basement 2 where road shows, performances and functions are held. 
The building underpasses connect to more shopping malls like Wisma Atria, ION, Wheelock Place, Isetan and Lucky Plaza.

Cairnhill Nine Captures Buying Interest

Mar 3 2016

Cairnhill Nine, Capitaland's latest condominium project along Orchard Road, has already collected a sizeable number of cheques, prior to its official launch on 12 March 2016, with Indonesians representing a significant portion of the potential buyers.

Indonesians do not mind 99 yr leasehold projects and favour Cairnhill Nine for its direct link-connector to Paragon and proximity to Mount Elizabeth Hospital, according to the director of Asean sales at Religare Capital Markets.

"What surprised us is the willingness of Indonesians to purchase, even with the 15 per cent additional buyer's stamp duty for foreigners. This project does bring a lot of attention due to its location and lower pricing among our Indonesian friends. It has been a long time since Indonesian friends would call us and ask for specific projects,” said the director.

This brings new hope for the residential market in Singapore.
