Unit details: 1 studio, 1 bath, 467 square feet, $2,500 per month ($5.35 psf)
This chic SOHO (Small Office Home Office) unit comes with uber high ceilings (we’re talking 5 metres high!) and raised platforms. If you ask us, this makes for a perfect bachelor/bachelorette pad cum home office. As Hillsta is a Japanese-inspired development, expect plenty of Japanese influences such as the pavilion deck over the pool (which is modelled after the riverbeds of Kyoto), as well as the Spa Pavilion which comes in a traditional onsen design. We’re impressed.
