Review Conclusion - Meyer Blue’s Investment Prospects

Meyer Blue's freehold tenure, a highly coveted address in District 15, and convenient access to the city, are some of the key factors that will underpin its investment prospects.

Freehold properties are increasingly rare in Singapore, and they can only come from en bloc sales, as the Singapore government no longer sells freehold land for private residential developments.

Moreover, Meyer Blue’s relatively large land size of 96,671.8 sq ft (8,981.1 sq m) makes it even rarer. The larger unit count in the development can help generate a more active resale and rental market, which is crucial for future sales.


Who Should Consider Investing in Meyer Blue?

  • Investors seeking a long-term, secure investment in a prime location, as well as those looking for legacy planning.
  • Families looking for convenience with access to a plethora of amenities and good schools.
  • Individuals with a preference for high-quality freehold properties.
  • Those targeting high net-worth tenants seeking luxury accommodation.

Pros and Cons of Investing in Meyer Blue

Here are the key pros and cons of investing in the Meyer Blue condominium development:

  • Pros:
    Prime locale in District 15 along the prestigious Meyer Road, close to East Coast Park and the upcoming Katong Park MRT station.
  • Direct train access and a short drive to the city.
  • Excellent connectivity via nearby major expressways like the ECP and MCP.
  • Freehold tenure, which is increasingly rare in Singapore, provides long-term investment value.
  • Unobstructed sea and city views from many higher units add significant appeal and value.
  • Developed by reputable joint venture partners UOL Group and Singapore Land Group, known for their high-quality “Masterpiece” developments.
  • Proximity to a wide range of amenities like shopping, dining, and prestigious schools.
  • Potential for strong rental demand and capital appreciation due to the prime location and freehold status.


  • High prices and maintenance fees due to the luxury nature of the development and its freehold tenure, potentially pricing out some buyers.
  • The imposition of punitive ABSD on foreigners purchasing Singapore properties may temper the pace of capital appreciation.
  • Potential noise and air pollution from the busy nearby East Coast Parkway.
  • Traffic congestion in the area during peak hours and seasonal influx of visitors (such as school holidays) to East Coast Park.

Meyer Blue - A Comparative Market Analysis

Comparative Market Analysis

Two of the newest condos in the area are Meyer Mansion and MeyerHouse. Launched in September 2019 and May 2029 respectively, both have been fully sold.

Although Meyer Mansion has underperformed MeyerHouse, it should be viewed from a proper perspective.

MeyerHouse offers a mix of only 56 units of 3- and 4-bedders with areas ranging from 1,862 sq ft to 5,683 sq ft, catering to a particular market segment looking for more exclusivity and spacious homes.

In contrast, Meyer Mansion offers a broader range of unit types – 200 units of 1- to 4-bedders, with sizes ranging from 484 to 2,142 sq ft.

Additionally, MeyerHouse has a higher percentage of foreign buyers (33.3%) compared to Meyer Mansion (5.7%). Foreign buyers, especially those looking for luxury properties in prime locations, may be less sensitive to price changes (ie, before the Singapore government imposed a 60% ABSD charge in April 2023).

Nevertheless, despite the hefty hike in Additional Buyer's Stamp Duty (ABSD) for foreign investors, properties located along Meyer Road have demonstrated continued resilience. This can be attributed to the district's enduring appeal, offering residents exceptional connectivity with convenient access to the city centre. Additionally, residents enjoy close proximity to shopping malls, esteemed educational institutions, and the tranquillity of East Coast Park. These factors are important considerations for property investment decisions.

With the slew of property cooling measures imposed by the Singapore government to stamp out speculation, the above-mentioned attributes of Meyer Blue will ensure both homeowners and investors a promising long-term investment.
