Singapore Penthouse sells for US$9.9 million
July 28, 2009 - D1 - Temasek Blvd, Raffles Link
A whole-floor penthouse unit at The Sail @ Marina Bay was recently bought by the chairman of Indian conglomerate Spice Corp for US$9.9 million.
It was the most expensive condo still available in the 63-storey tower. Apparently, price was never an issue for Dr Bhupendra Kumar Modi, 59, who immediately fell inlove with the penthouse.
"You either like or don't like it," he said of his property buy. "The deal was closed in two hours. Even my wife didn't look at it."
The 542 sqm apartment comes with a lap pool, a private terrace, four bedrooms and sweeping views of the Marina Bay area.
Dr Modi now has 13 properties all over the world. Apart from the four in Singapore, the rest are in Bangalore, Beijing, Beverly Hills, Mumbai, Kuala Lumpur, London, New Delhi, New York and Shenzhen.
