The Grand Dunman, a new condominium development along Dunman Road in the Katong-Mountbatten neighbourhood, will launch in July 2023. Its name is perhaps an allusion to its size and location.
Grand Dunman is part of the private residential enclave of District 15, within the Marine Parade Planning Area of Singapore. As such it is relatively close to the city centre, and to the central business and financial districts of Raffles Place and Marina Bay.
It is also one of the most interesting and attractive sites to come on the market in recent times. At 1,008 units across 7 residential blocks, it offers one of the largest range of facilities and wide landscaped grounds.
The Grand Dunman Condo . Attributes
✤ Land Size
Among the current batch of launches, Grand Dunman condominium stands out for possessing the second largest land area.
Unlike the previous batch that saw numerous mega launches, the current batch is dominated by small to mid-size projects. Hence only three projects now have anywhere near 1000 units. A far cry from four years back, where many of the launches ranged from over 1,000 to 2,000 units.
One advantage of a large land area, is the luxury of more facilities, and generous grounds for landscaping and gardens.
Another is that later on, having a good number of units means a more vibrant and active resale market. There is enough critical mass to generate interest and turnover.
Size alone, however, is of not much use, if it is not coupled with a good location. However this one is.
The project occupies a GLS (government land sale) site at an intersection of Geylang River and Dunman Road. It was a former school site, nestled in a mainly landed estate bound by Tanjong Katong Road and Mountbatten Road.
Mountbatten, together with the surrounding enclaves of Marine Parade and Katong, are prime housing enclaves. The neighbourhood ranks among the most coveted residential areas outside the traditional 9,10, 11 districts.
It has historically been filled mainly with private homes. There are even a handful of Good Class Bungalows around.
This gives it a laid-back feel, a more relaxed ambience in contrast to most other parts of the island. Added to that is Katong’s rich cultural heritage, as a fair bit of old Singapore is preserved here.
As a mature residential estate, it is also well-supported with established schools and plenty of amenities.
Meanwhile, to the west and north of Grand Dunman, Kallang and Paya Lebar are undergoing rejuvenation into vibrant lifestyle and economic hubs.
There is therefore a balance of the old and the new, of nostalgia and buzz, in the surrounding neighbourhoods.
The Grand Dunman condo is quite rare in its unblocked views. It is a high-rise development that is half-surrounded by landed estates, on its north-east, east, and south.
The low-rise landed estates have been zoned as such for eons, and are set to remain so. Not many sites have the assurance of such unobstructed views in so many directions. Especially to the south-east, south, and south-west over the Goodman and Wilkinson landed enclave.
And because these houses stretch for quite a way, especially east and south, it affords a pretty open outlook. So much so that there is the possibility of sea views in the distance to the south from high floors. And in all probability, good wind flows and breezes too.
Easy access to public transport is another strong point here. The Grand Dunman condo is located almost beside Dakota MRT station on the Circle Line, separated only by Geylang River.
Geylang River at this point is not very wide, maybe 40 metres across. So the nearest station exit is less than 100 metres, a couple of minutes walk away. Practically as close as one can get to a station, without actually sitting on it.
Dakota station is within 15 minutes ride from Marina Bay and Suntec City.
This location is also valued for quick access to major nodes. It is under 15 minutes drive to the CBD, and 20 minutes to Changi Airport, via East Coast and Marina Coastal expressways.
Several buses ply Dunman Road too, with some going into the city, from a bus-stop directly in front of the site.

Grand Dunman Site Plan
Grand Dunman Singapore is a high-rise condominium in the residential enclave bounded by Dunman, Mountbatten and Tanjong Katong roads. It occupies a large triangular land parcel just beside Geylang River.
Based on the URA Master Plan, the site is zoned for residential use, with a 3.5 gross plot ratio. The main vehicular entrance is via Dunman Road on its north.
The land immediately across Dunman Road is unoccupied right now. But it is zoned for high-rise residential use in future as well.
The west boundary of the site flanks the park connector that runs along Geylang River. Both the park connector and the river ensure a good separation from the high-rise apartments across the river.
This same buffer has been extended to the south and east of the site too. A strip of land has been set aside as a drainage reserve to create a distance between the high-rise blocks here, and the landed houses of Poole, Wareham, and Crescent roads.
And it is in these directions, to the east and south, that the views looks to be the most attractive. It is also the quietest, with hardly any traffic noise. Because spread around these sides is a low-rise estate, comprising landed houses.
These stretch all the way to Meyer Road and Marine Parade. And since the residential towers along East Coast are spaced apart, there is the possibility of sea views between them.
The rather unblocked nature of this Dunman condo also means many units could get lots of wind and natural light.

GRAND DUNMAN PRICE BACKGROUND
The GLS (Government Land Sale) tender for this 271,622 square feet site closed on 2 June 2022. Sing-Haiyi Jade Pte Ltd won it with a bid of $1,283,888,998.
URA’s Master Plan stipulates plot ratio for the site at 3.5 (ratio of gross floor area to land area). That works out to total allowable GFA (Gross Floor Area) of 950,677 square feet.
Based on the winning bid, the land cost works out to roughly $1,350 PSF PPR (per sq ft per plot ratio).
Hence after taking into account all the costs involved in developing the site, as well as financing, overheads, and marketing, the breakeven could come to about $2,000 PSF.
The eventual selling price, after adding the margin, is not known yet. But based on Liv@MB’s pricing, an estimate average of around $2,3xx to $2,5xx PSF might not be far off.

Grand Dunman Location · Features
Location. This Dunman condo is along Dunman Road, just beside Geylang River, in the Marine Parade Planning area of Singapore. In the immediate neighbourhood, it lies between the landed estate of Tanjong Katong and Mountbatten on one side, and the apartment blocks of the Dakota precinct across the river on the other.
Dunman Road is not a very busy or wide one. It is fringed mainly by private housing, so this area is in general not an extremely noisy one.
Nearest MRT Station. The Grand Dunman location is about 100m, roughly 2 minutes walk, to the Dakota station on the Circle MRT Line.
This is a rather convenient line to be on. Like its name suggests, it circles around the island, and intersects with every other MRT line. Which means that every other line is just one change away.
Dakota station is also pretty close to the city centre. It is 5 stations, about 15 minutes ride, from Marina Bay station and financial district, and Esplanade station at Suntec. And by 2026, it will add the Prince Edward, Cantonment, and Keppel stations, to close the loop to Harbourfront.
Eateries, Food Centres, Shops, Supermarkets. One MRT stop up the Circle Line, is Paya Lebar MRT station, an interchange station with the East-West Line. It is also directly connected to the mixed-use developments of Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ) and Paya Lebar Square. These sit at the heart of URA’s masterplan to regenerate Paya Lebar into a bustling city precinct, and dynamic business hub.
Here you can find homes, modern Grade A office towers, and a couple of retail malls and supermarkets. A wide range of shopping, entertainment, and dining experiences available here, including parkside dining. Combined, the malls offer a total of over 350 shops and F&B outlets, across 430,000 square feet of retail space.
There is also plenty of good food within walking distance of the Grand Dunman location itself. Old Airport Road Food Centre with its famous stalls, inside and around it, is about 7 minutes walk away. And the stretch of Tanjong Katong Road nearby is well-known as a food haven. From old-time favourites to quaint cafes in old shophouses and five-foot ways, that add flavour to dining out.
Schools & Educational Institutions. There are two primary schools within 1 KM of this Dunman condo location. One is Kong Hwa School at Guillemard Road, 6 minutes walk away via the park connector along Geylang River. The other is Tanjong Katong Primary school, but only for blocks on the south-east corner of our site.
Established and popular secondary schools in the vicinity include Dunman High, Chung Cheng High, Tanjong Katong Girls’, and the Canadian International School (Tanjong Katong Campus). Both Chung Cheng High and Tanjong Katong Girls’ School are actually within a 10 minute walk too.
Sports & Recreation. One attraction of the East Coast area, is East Coast Park and Beach. From the Dunman Residences location, a short drive down Tanjong Katong Road brings one to East Coast Park Service Road.
There are also Singapore Sports Hub and Kallang sports centre nearby, two stops down the Circle Line, at Stadium station. Also reachable via the park connector along Geylang River, especially for those who like to run or cycle.
Accessibility. Another good reason why East Coast homes are so popular, is their proximity to the Financial and Central Business District. From the Grand Dunman location via Nicoll Highway to Raffles Place for instance, is a 15 minute drive, off-peak.
And to get onto the ECP (East Coast Parkway) and expressway network, is a 2KM drive down Tanjong Katong Road. From there, the ECP is another fast way to get to Marina Bay and the city centre, and further afield.
Or heading east, it takes under 20 minutes up the ECP to get to Changi Airport. Frequent travellers, especially if they work in the CBD too, would find this place especially convenient.
