Parvis at Holland Hill also has big unitsParvis at Holland Hill has got big and comfortable looking units, bucking the trend of tiny units. The project is located at the former Holland Hill Mansion site close to Holland Village and is part of District 10.
2rm units without Private Enclosed Space (PES) come in a standard size of 990 sqft and are by far some of the larger ones we have seen lately. The 3rm units without PES also have a uniform size of 1,701 sqft while the 4rm units start from 1,991 sqft. Notably, units with PES have the extra space clearly spelled out in the brochure and are approximately anywhere from 333 - 785 sqft.
The 4rm master bedrooms are luxurious with room even for a seperate bathtub and shower. In general, the rooms have squarish layouts without those oddly shaped corners.

The 2rm layouts mostly come in one standard size.
The 3rm units are pretty big. But note the large balcony and planter.

They enbloc Holland Hill Mansions at S$749.39psf/ppr so add another S$500psf for construction, S$200psf for profit. A good guess should be around S$1,450psf to S$1,500psf.
Latest Update: Parvis going for an average of $1480 psf
85 of the 248 units are being launched this week at an average price of $1,480psf. The 12-storey freehold condo at Holland Hill is jointly developed by Ho Bee and MCL Land. That works out to about $1.62m for a 990sqft 2BR and $3.02m for a 1,991aqft 4BR.
Somehow we don't see huge crowds thronging the showrooms. Where have all the mass market condo launches gone? Are all the landbanks used up?
Latest 11 November 2009
Parvis sells 51 units, Trilight moves 61 unitsWith the opening of the two integrated resorts round the corner, will the luxury and high end market gain momentum as many punters have been anticipating, or has all the hype been priced in already?
Although not a sell out crowd, it seems that there are some hints of movement at Parvis at Holland Hill and Trilight - Parvis sold 51 units while Trilight has moved 61 units to date. Parvis comprises of 248 units, Trilight has 205 in total.
Both of these condos are considered to be in the mid to high end range, with Parvis (District 10) calling an average price of $1,480 and Trilight (District 11) asking for $1,650psf.
Interestingly, the units that moved the most at Parvis were 4BR units. Fourteen 3BR and fifteen 2BR units were also sold at the development. However the interest still seems very much localized with Singaporeans picking up 39 of the 51 units sold.
Aside from that, it does not take a genius to notice that the market has been eerily pretty quiet. But we detect some undercurrent...perhaps all the developers are waiting for the IRs to open and ride on the frenzy, rolling out not-seen-before projects at never-seen-before prices.
