Although completed in 1999, this project has been received highly by its residents for its excellent maintenance. Furthermore, there are upcoming plans by the management committee to refurbish the building’s premises.

Sheldon mentioned that effective property maintenance is integral to enhancing the value of a property. The comprehensive upkeep of a property not only elevates its livability but also ensures its durability over time.

He said that this was why strata homeowners should be cognizant of their duties and responsibilities.

By actively attending annual general meetings and appointing credible management committee members, homeowners can greatly influence the direction and efficacy of property maintenance.

This level of involvement ensures that the high-rise home receives the attention and expertise required for its upkeep, resulting in a well-maintained and attractive property.
