SINGAPORE - Massive penthouses may be one way for developers to differentiate their projects.
Here are some other ways developers have tried to give their projects that extra selling edge.
If playgrounds are too ordinary for you, the Tree House condo along Chestnut Avenue will have three tree houses when it is completed this year.
These lantern-shaped features, joined by bridges and a spiral staircase, offer a different play experience for kids as well as the young at heart.
The 417-unit Soleil@Sinaran condo at Novena has spa pavilions run by well-known local chain Aramsa Spa.
Soleil is believed to be the first in Singapore to tie up with a spa operator to run a facility in a condo.
The spa consists of three wooden-decked pavilions, each with two massage beds, a hot tub and a shower area, located in full view of the pool.
Park your car next to your living room in the 30-storey Hamilton Scotts condo along Scotts Road. The development is billed as the first in the world with a self-parking mechanism.
The system works by identifying residents via their thumbprints.
Residents first drive their cars onto a turntable in the basement car park. They then get out and place their thumb on a biometric identifier.
The car automatically registers the resident's unit. It is placed into a lift and taken to the resident's unit.
