Our Special Report highlights “Top Properties For Asian Buyers” where our eyes are on some sterling Asian homes located in Vietnam’s District 1 and 2; we also feature our realty brethrens across the causeway where city living in Kuala Lumpur beckons, and Conlay and Stonor 3 @ KLCC are some choice pickings; we even feature two posh residences in Paris where the city is witnessing a 21-century metropolis transformation, backed by an ambitious €26 billion transportation in the making… all this is part of the government’s effort to create the “Grand Paris”; there’s also London where the city is still undeniably recognised as the “top 3 destinations” for property investors. Here we, look at two properties – Newham’s Yard South and 101 on Cleveland; of course, Singapore offers some luxury property gems such as 3 Orchard-By-The-Park, South Beach Residences, and the grandiose vision of upcoming Guoco Midtown where the mixed-use paradigm of living, working, shopping, and playing is taking shape as we speak.

All About Design
In terms of design trends, Palace 26 is not short on supply of inspiration. We got close to two design stalwarts – Antonio Citterio and Rodolfo Dordoni – for B&B Italia and Minotti, respectively. These design geniuses prove to the world that their functional and sleek furniture pieces are firm favourites among the design community. Citterio is also featured for his architectural merit when designing 3 Orchard-By-The-Park residences in Singapore. Read about why this luxury condominium in Tanglin area is a worthwhile investment to consider, here. It’s his first-ever luxury apartment project in Singapore where the apartments reap the spoils of the tropical climate and is a stone’s throw away from the UNESCO World Heritage Site Singapore Botanic Gardens.
