SINGAPORE: Two-storey maisonettes look set to pop up in new executive condominium (EC) projects.

In Sembawang, one such project at the junction of Sembawang Crescent and Sembawang Drive will have 28 maisonettes.

The price for the units has yet to be fixed, but each maisonette will occupy 1,709 square feet.

Another project in Punggol East is expected to have 10 maisonettes.

Director of property firm Chris International, Chris Koh, said there is demand for such units, prompting developers to include them.

He said: “It’s not surprising that from big units that we previously had, now we are seeing maisonettes, you know, of two levels.

“He’s trying to create probably a unique selling proposition, to be able to get buyers to see his project as something different.”
