Grand Dunman is a 99-year leasehold New Launch condominium along Dunman Road in the coveted District 15. Some highlights of the development are:
In the wake of the first wave of mega developments, such as Avenue South Residence, Jadescape, Parc Esta, Florence Residences, Parc Clematis, and Treasure at Tampines, skepticism surrounded the demand for these colossal projects. Concerns were raised about the potential saturation of facilities and the competitive resale and rental market. However, Grand Dunman, slated for a 2023 launch, has captured significant attention, drawing around 10,000 visitors during its initial preview weekend, setting a record since the 2018 launch of Park Colonial.
Positioned as the largest new condo launch in recent years, Grand Dunman Condo seeks to redefine city living with its strategic location, a mere 10-minute drive from the CBD and a 2-minute walk to Dakota MRT station. Offering a diverse array of configurations, including 1- to 5-bedroom options, dual-key, and penthouse units, the development caters to a wide range of buyer profiles, from young couples to families, first-time buyers, upgraders, and investors.
SingHaiyi secured the GLS site in 2022 at a notable S$1,350 psf per plot ratio, marking it as the most expensive RCR site. The launch prices will be closely monitored, considering its competition with recent developments in District 15.
Grand Dunman Condo is strategically situated amidst a mix of public and private housing, providing residents with a well-balanced neighbourhood experience. Surrounded by Mountbatten’s landed enclave on one side and HDB flats near Dakota MRT on the other, residents can enjoy a diverse and vibrant living environment. Abundant F&B options, including the famed Old Airport Road Food Centre and Kallang Estate Market, are within a 9-minute walk, while major shopping malls like PLQ, KINEX, i12 Katong, and Parkway Parade are just a short drive away.
For fitness enthusiasts, the nearby Geylang Park Connector offers opportunities for jogging or cycling, connecting to Marina Bay Waterfront within 30 minutes, and East Coast Park is just a 6-minute drive away.
Grand Dunman Condo’s exceptional connectivity, with Dakota MRT just a 2-minute walk away, and easy access to major expressways like KPE and ECP, positions it as an ideal choice for those valuing convenience. Families benefit from its proximity to reputable schools such as Kong Hwa School, Tanjong Katong Primary, and Haig Girls’ School, along with renowned secondary schools and an international school in the vicinity.
Grand Dunman features seven residential blocks: Block 2 exclusively for Grand Collection units, with private lifts and 6 units per floor; the other six blocks house Luxury units, each with 18 stacks.
Accessed via Dunman Road, a two-lane road with notable traffic during peak hours, the entrance includes a roundabout, easing traffic flow. The drop-off area accommodates over 1,000 units.
Remarkably, there’s a 1:1 unit to parking lot ratio, with 1,009 lots for 1,008 units, a rare find in large developments. Proximity to Dakota MRT suggests not all units will require a car, benefiting families with multiple cars.
A standout feature is the 80m Grand Pool, a luxury compared to the common 50m lap pool. Other pools include the Kids’ Pool, Jacuzzi, and River Garden, forming a peacock shape. The Hydro Massage, Viewing Bridge, and Pool Clubhouse add to the aquatic experience.
The Clubhouse, overlooking the Grand Pool, boasts a gym, changing rooms, sauna, and function rooms. A singular main pool caters to the numerous units, with additional sporting amenities like a tennis court. The Treetop Walk connects the Clubhouse to the Treehouse Playground, featuring a Splash Play Zone and Rainbow River.
The Jewel Clubhouse offers three function rooms, a karaoke/music room, and a golf simulator/games room, with the Jewel Library providing a quiet space for work or study. The first-floor commercial shops, separated by a gate for privacy, are yet to be determined.
Grand Dunman provides a diverse range of facilities for residents, promoting a well-rounded and comfortable living experience.
At Grand Dunman Condo, all 2-bedroom units, except for the dual-key ones, follow a smart layout called dumbbell. Sizes range from 667 sq ft to 797 sq ft (excluding top-floor units). Smaller units have 1 bath, while larger ones may have 2 baths and/or a study.
Unique to Grand Dunman Condo are dual-key units, a rare find for 2-bedroom layouts, like the 775 sq ft one with a study. The smallest 2-bedroom is 667 sq ft with 1 bathroom, going up to 797 sq ft. All units feature porcelain tiles in common areas, engineered timber in bedrooms, and a standard ceiling height of 2.8m.
The 3-bedroom units at Grand Dunman boast a diverse range of sizes, spanning from 926 sq ft to 1,475 sq ft, excluding the top floor units that incorporate void spaces. These units exhibit various layouts, some featuring practical additions such as a store or home shelter, while others provide a foyer space at the entrance and in the common bedroom area.
An exciting feature of these 3-bedroom units, paralleling the 2-bedroom ones, is the inclusion of dual-key units. This design not only allows for the potential generation of rental income but also ensures privacy for different living quarters, all while potentially avoiding Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty (ABSD). The showcased unit in the Luxury Collection stands out as the largest 3-bedroom configuration, boasting a yard and home shelter for added convenience.
In terms of interior finishes, all units adhere to a high standard. Porcelain tiles adorn the common areas, providing a sleek and durable surface, while engineered timber graces the bedrooms, offering both aesthetic appeal and comfort. The ceiling height aligns with market standards at 2.8 meters, creating an open and spacious atmosphere.
As part of the developer’s commitment to sustainability, each unit comes equipped with a ceiling fan in the living/dining area. This addition not only enhances the living experience but also aligns with the vision of creating new-generation homes that prioritize energy efficiency and environmental responsibility.
Grand Dunman boasts a fantastic location. The renowned Old Airport Road Food Centre, with its 168 stalls, is just across the street, offering a vast array of local and luxury dining options. Tanjong Katong Road adds to the culinary delights, featuring local favourites like Eng’s Wanton Mee and luxury choices such as Seng House and Little Italy.
For daily needs, the NTUC supermarket near the food centre is convenient, although there are other options like those in Leisure Park, Paya Lebar Quarters, Paya Lebar Square, and Parkway Parade, just a short MRT ride or drive away.
