It seems that the construction industry cannot build housing quickly enough in Singapore. The island has a government that believed promoting building projects was a good way to prevent the construction industry and the real estate been too badly affected by recession. That strategy meant that Singapore has had several shopping mall and various condo developments completed in this decade already. Thus the building of condos at The Martin Residence is another part of the strategy to have more housing available for the population of the country. When finished it will provide 500 housing units in a relatively small parcel of land. Its developers won the lease tender from the government as they placed the highest bid.

However experience has shown that condos sell better and faster when the complex they are contained within are in more desirable locations, or are within a short distance of such locations. The Martin Residences without a doubt are close to places that their residents will want to go to for a variety of reasons.
