Despite the recession, Sentosa Cove is fast taking shape as a prime residential haven.
Building at the 117ha site is on schedule, although some developers have asked for extensions. A 12-month extension has been granted to one developer.
By the end of the year, 85 per cent of the projects in North Cove will be ready, while the South Cove, where land sales were completed only last year, will be fully developed by 2014.
There are 1,700 residents in Sentosa Cove but this will rise to about 3,000 by the end of the year.Source: Straits Times, 25 April 2009
