The Verandah Residences project is expected to be completed in the fourth quarter of 2023.

“The market response to the Verandah launch has been very encouraging. There were a lot of enquiries for the project before the launch, and the sales progress proved that the pent-up demand was real, especially for quality projects with excellent location and reasonable prices,” says Ching Chiat Kwong, Oxley’s executive chairman and CEO.

“We have a strong project pipeline in Singapore. Riding on the upbeat market sentiment, Oxley is in a favourable position to supply more good quality residential projects to meet market demand, and to bring our business to the next level,” he adds.

The Verandah Residences was Oxley’s first launch this year. The group plans to launch more projects, including developments at the Rio Casa and Serangoon Ville sites, over the next few months in 2018.

As at 12.30pm, shares of Oxley are trading flat at 47.5 cents.
