WFH in the Prime Districts

Which condominiums in the city centre Districts 9,10,11 have good provisions of study rooms to create that productive home office or classroom?

It’s May 2021 and Singapore is back to WFH as default mode of work due to a resurgence of community cases from a variant Covid strain. Singapore banks has also announced late in 2020 that flexi-work will become a permanent feature . DBS, has given its 29,000 strong workforce the option to work remotely up to 40 percent of the time, while UOB has given its 26,000 staff the option to work remotely 2 days a week. Looks like banks are now joining tech firms who have previously announced flexible work arrangements.

The straightforward impact of these announcement by the corporates would simply be that the home office could become a permanent feature is homes of white collar workers.

Part V of this series will have us uncover condos in the prime district 9,10,11 (possibly areas where many bankers want to find a home) with good scoring Study Rooms across 1,2,3 bedroom types from completed projects across Singapore. We omitted the 4 bedders as they would probably have enough rooms and floor area for a more versatile WFH setup. 

We have set certain criteria for the units to feature in these reports: Firstly, these study rooms must achieve the highest score and have more than 20 numbers of the same unit type. This will increase the chances for them to be available in the market should you be looking for one to cope with the new WFH normal.

1. Soleil @ Sinaran — Type B1

102sqm. 2 Bedroom & 2 Bathrooms. 43 units. Stack 06 and 09

The study room is next to the master bedroom which technically can be converted to a full blown walk in wardrobe if you didn’t need to work from home.

The study room is big at at approx  Area 5.4sqm (2.5m W x 2.1m L). This is a good size “home office” where you can place a proper work desk with space leftover for a bookshelf or a lounge chair or you can also place a long table facing the wall to accommodate 2 persons working side by side or make use of the bay window to build a reading niche.
