Leading Singapore property developer Bukit Sembawang Estates Limited (BSEL) will preview to the public its highly-anticipated condominium 8 St Thomas this weekend, starting Saturday 1 September. The high-end freehold development at St Thomas Walk, which is ready for immediate occupancy, serves as an exclusive residential enclave that appeals to both locals and foreign investors.

An exclusive private preview of 8 St Thomas, held over the past weekend in Singapore and Hong Kong, was well-received by interested buyers. More than 20 units were sold with prices averaging well above S$3,000psf.

“We are heartened by the positive response of 8 St Thomas in both Singapore and Hong Kong. The successful preview of 8 St Thomas has demonstrated that premium freehold quality developments in prime District 9 continue to be much sought after by discerning buyers,” said Mr Ng Chee Seng, CEO of BSEL.


Ms May Tan, Head of Residential Projects at CBRE, the appointed marketing agent for 8 St Thomas, commented “Compared to recent market transactions and land bids under the government land sales program and collective sales transactions in prime districts 9 and 10, 8 St Thomas presents a sound value proposition for both owner-occupiers and investors. With  one- and two-bedders priced from $1.42 million and $1.78 million respectively, savvy prospective buyers will find 8 St Thomas palatable for  a premier freehold project located in a prestigious area.”

With sprawling lush land size of almost one hectare and full condominium facilities, home-owners can select from a range of one- to four- bedroom units, four-bedroom dual-key units and penthouses, starting from an area of 441 sq ft up to 2,659 sq ft.

A home is not just an abode, but a statement of who you are. Bearing that in mind, 8 St Thomas has infused artful geometric lines and forms dance in rhythm on the facades of magnificent twin towers, accentuating a quality home with exquisite style. A medley of spacious layouts, comprehensive amenities, and naturalistic landscaping welcome you home every day.

As a newly completed development, 8 St Thomas offers buyers immediate ownership, investment or rental proposition.

Each 35-storey tower allows privileged home-owners to enjoy unparalleled views of the city skyline from their private balconies, against the panoramic backdrop of Orchard Road and the Marina Bay.

Each home comes with exclusively selected designer fittings and finishes to provide all the comforts of urban living. Every unit is fitted with a home automation system that controls access to the unit, lights and air-conditioners. Designed to be an eco-paradise, homes at 8 St Thomas include energy and water efficient fittings, as well as green features such as green lots for charging electric cars. 8 St Thomas has been awarded the Building Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Gold.

8 St Thomas offers a bespoke lifestyle beyond the home, with social spaces invigorated with rich foliage and flowing landscapes. The clubhouse, set amidst a cascading waterfall, houses the gym, steam room and private function room. There is also a Garden Trail that meanders around the shimmering lap pool. Residents can unwind and bask in the allure of nature at five themed Sky Garden viewing decks or indulge in recreational activities at the other six Sky Terraces featuring cocktail lounges, gourmet dining areas, games zones, children’s discovery zones, as well as yoga and fitness decks.


The development is a short walk away from Somerset MRT station and the upcoming Great World City MRT Station. Residents can enjoy being in close proximity to Singapore’s renowned shopping belt Orchard Road with major malls like ION Orchard, Takashimaya, Paragon and 313 Somerset, and even premier medical facilities like Mount Elizabeth’s Hospital and Paragon Medical. It is also well-connected to major transport routes, such as the Central Expressway and a short drive away from the Central Business District and Marina Bay Financial Centre.

Reputable educational institutions are also located in the vicinity, including River Valley Primary School (within 1 km), Raffles Girls Secondary School, Singapore Management University, Chatsworth International School and ISS International School.
