25 executive condos that are within walking distance to the MRT

PHOTO: Mrt.sg

It’s not just your imagination – Executive condos (ECs) really do tend to be further from MRT stations; we’ve briefly touched on this in a previous article.

However, it’s not a universal fact. There are some ECs that manage to keep both that sweet lower price point, while still being within walking distance of an MRT station.

In this article, we’ve picked out all the executive condos that are under a 1 kilometre radius of an MRT station (the limit of what most home buyers consider “walking distance”).

We’ve also sorted them from closest to furthest, so you can pick based on a distance that’s tolerable to you:

Special thanks to Square Foot Research for the data below.

A quick note on time and walking distance:

Age Average Pace
20 to 29 80.4 to 81.6 metres / minute
30 to 39 80.4 to 85.8 metres / minute
40 to 49 83.4 to 85.8 metres / minute
50 to 59 74.4 to 80.4 metres / minute
60 to 69 67.8 to 75.6 metres / minute

(Ps. We don’t know why the average walking speed for 40 to 49 is so fast either, but that’s what this Healthline guide says!)
