One major aspect that buyers look out for when buying property is accessibility to public transport. Especially for those who don’t drive, living close to the MRT will cut down travelling time.
A major exciting MRT development is the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), which has opened progressively and is estimated to be completed by 2025. It will consist of 32 stations, with eight interchange stations connecting to major MRT lines such as the North-South Line, Circle Line and East-West Line.
Connecting the north, south and east regions of Singapore, the Thomson East-Coast Line is expected to serve one million residents in the long term.
For now, stations from Stages 1 to 3 have been opened, stretching from Woodlands North MRT to Gardens by the Bay MRT.
Using 99.co’s search filter function, we’ve narrowed down several new launch condos within an 8-minute walk of a Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) MRT station.

New launch condominiums near Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) MRT stations
Nearest TEL MRT: Havelock MRT (5-minute walk)
Here’s a condo for those who have always wanted a riverfront home. Riviere is located at the heart of Robertson Quay, and it’s the only new launch condo on this list that’s located along the Singapore River.
This development is also perfect if you’re looking to move into a new condo but don’t want to wait a few years as it just obtained its TOP in March 2023.
With the CBD just around a seven-minute drive, it makes an ideal home for those working in the CBD.
2. Lentor Modern
Nearest Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) station: Lentor MRT (integrated with condo)
Lentor Modern will be the first condo in the Lentor neighbourhood. So as a buyer, you get to enjoy a first-mover advantage here.
It will also be the only integrated development in the area, offering direct access to Lentor MRT and two storeys of retail and F&B options.
3. 19 Nassim
Nearest Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL) station: Napier MRT (5-minute walk)
As the name of the condo suggests, 19 Nassim is located in the prestigious Nassim area.
Previously, the nearest MRT would be Orchard MRT that’s around a 20-minute walk away. But with the opening of Napier MRT, the train will just be around a five-minute walking distance.
The condo is also a 10-minute walk from Gleneagles Hospital and Singapore Botanic Gardens.

Amber Park is another condo on this list that’s near East Coast Park.
