The Glades may not be situated in a conventionally rich area like Holland Village or Orchard Road but it is in a very high traffic, well connected part of the island. While there are no truly close amenities within a couple of minutes of walking, it is within proximity by bus or train to several malls, supermarkets and food courts, as well as schools.
Bedok Interchange and its two shopping malls is one train stop down while Tampines, Expo, Changi Airport and Pasir Ris are readily reached from Tanah Merah MRT station which is next to the development. The bus stop in front of the station goes toward downtown and Marine Parade.
New Upper Changi Road links all the way to Bugis Junction along Victoria Street and past the Esplanade along the way to Jurong.
That, and with its lavish landscaping, real marble floors and generous layouts, contribute to a higher cost. The Glades has the some of the pricier units out of all the condominiums in the area around Tanah Merah.
The good thing about The Glades is definitely its layout. The spaciousness of even little units adds to that feeling of luxury.
Bigger units are certainly with the capacity of handling larger families, while a 1-bedroom unit can meet most of a working professional’s demands. Obviously, squeezing two individuals in a common bedroom wo’t create the best of experiences but if they’re children it’s doable when they modest.
Its location is unequivocally great and the extreme convenience of the MRT station next to it will make this an excellent buy for professionals that work along the East-West line or nearby at Changi Business Park.
However, it’s higher price means individuals buying to rent may choose some of the other condominiums. There are cheaper alternatives around, while The Glades is aesthetically pleasant.
