Rents up after restoration works at Gems Ville; some ex-tenants priced out
SINGAPORE - When finance and information technology director Hara Mohanty and his family of four moved out of the terraced unit in Katong that they had rented for over 10 years in mid-2021, he had hoped to return after it was upgraded. But he found himself priced out, as rents for the cluster of 42 terraced houses off Haig Road have gone up following upgrading and restoration works by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) that lasted a year.
Conveniently located in District 14 along Geylang Lorong 13, Gems Ville is a freehold 8-storey condominium with communal facilities. This modern beauty, slated to be completed in 2025, draws attention away from the surrounding metropolis with its clear facade. Residents can look forward to having access to a broad range of facilities in the area not limited to cafes, pubs, local gourmet alternatives and casual coffee shops. Reputable schools and sporting facilities are also in the vicinity making it an overall well-rounded neighbourhood for people from different walks of life.
