Condo Review: District 16 Sky Eden
Updated: Jul 28
For those who live in the eastern part of Singapore, especially Bedok area during the 90s and 2000s, you must have been to or heard of Changi Theatre or Bedok 1 & 2 cinema theatres.
These are the 2 cinema theatres out of the 4 in Bedok area. The other 2 being Liwagu and Princess Theatre.
Changi and Bedok Theatres were demolished in the early 2000s and redeveloped into a shopping mall Bedok Point. Just some fun fact... Bedok Point is actually the first air-conditioned mall in Bedok until Bedok Mall came along in 2013!
On 1 July 2021, it was announced that Bedok Point will cease operation on 30 June 2022 and developed into a residential development with commercial units on the ground floor. And this development is Sky Eden.

Bedok is one of the largest mature residential estate in Singapore. It is home to approximately 280,000 residents.
The last major new condo launch in District 16 was Grandeur Park Residences in 2017. With no new launches here for the past 5 years, there is a pent-up demand from existing home buyers for new homes in this district.
Sky Eden is located at a strategic location in Bedok Central, where existing supply is very limited. There is only 1 existing condo, Bedok Residences located in Bedok Central.
Owners for Bedok Residences are holding tight to their assets. In 2022, there were only 12 units transacted till date.
Sky Eden is definitely a property worth considering whether for own stay or investment. However, as per all other investments, a lot is dependent on the price developer is looking at.
