New holiday job for students: "Queuer" at project launch

By The Folks @PropTalk - November 21, 2011 3 Comments

Units at a new property launch go on sale on Wednesday and already some 500 people are in the queue.

And about 100 of them are students.
Most of the students said they are helping family or friends queue for a spot in Bedok Residences, a development coming up at Bedok New Town.

Interested buyers must get a queue number, and the students said they are being paid about $10 an hour to do the job.

Residents in the area said some of them have been there since 10:00 pm on Sunday.

Bedok Residences will have 583 units and is part of a 15-storey integrated development consisting of residential units, a shopping mall and a transportation hub.

The development is by CapitaLand Residential Singapore and CapitaMalls Asia.

So it looks like there is little doubt that Bedok Residences will be a sell-out. The question is just... at how much per sqft.

  2. We just hope that it's not circa 1996 immediately before the Asian Financial Crisis...
