Sentosa Cove’s Real Estate Market Sees Unprecedented Surge

In an astonishing turn of events, Sentosa Cove’s real estate market has witnessed a remarkable surge in sales following a significant price reduction at The Residences at W Singapore Sentosa Cove. A whopping 65 units were snapped up in just two days, on April 15 and 16, marking a historic moment for the luxury condominium development.

A Strategic Price Cut

Originally launched in 2010, the units at The Residences were introduced to the market with a hefty price tag ranging from $2,500 to $3,000 per square foot (psf). However, the initial demand was less than enthusiastic, leading to a mere 20 units sold that year. Fast forward to 2024, and a bold move by Cityview Place Holdings—an associate of the developer City Developments Limited (CDL)—has reignited interest in the property.

With a price slash of over 40%, the residences were offered at an average selling price of $1,780 psf, a stark contrast to the median price of $1,999 psf for Sentosa Cove condominiums sold from January to March 20242. This strategic pricing proved to be a game-changer, attracting a flood of potential buyers.

The Sales Phenomenon

The sale event became the talk of the town, drawing approximately 3,200 visitors for viewings from April 10 to 14. On the first day of the sale, 58 units were released, and 45 were sold, including four luxurious penthouses. The following day saw the release of additional units, with another 20 units finding new owners1.

A Diverse Buyer Profile

Interestingly, the majority of the buyers—94% to be precise—are Singaporeans and permanent residents. The remaining buyers hail from various corners of the globe, including China, France, and the United States, reflecting the international appeal of Sentosa Cove as a prime residential location1.

Expert Insights

Industry experts attribute the near 80% take-up of units on the first day primarily to the competitive pricing. The allure of a lifestyle home away from the city’s hustle and bustle, coupled with the convenience of hybrid work arrangements and last-mile delivery services, has made Sentosa Cove an increasingly desirable place to live2.

A Cautionary Note

Despite the success, some experts caution that investing in Sentosa Cove is not without risk, citing that 63% of resale transactions over the past decade resulted in losses. Nevertheless, those seeking a genuine waterfront living experience are likely to find great satisfaction in their investment2.


The Residences at W Singapore Sentosa Cove’s recent sales success story is a testament to the power of strategic pricing in the real estate market. It also highlights the evolving preferences of homebuyers who are now placing greater value on lifestyle and convenience. As the dust settles on this extraordinary sale, it will be interesting to see how this impacts the broader property market in Sentosa Cove and beyond.
