Build quality within the interior of Meyer Mansion is phenomenal and exudes a premium vibe.

There is the upcoming Katong Park MRT station under the Thomson East Coast Line which will be developed, and will be relatively nearby to Meyer Mansion.
In my opinion, Katong Park Station is suitable for your kids if they go to Singapore’s schools, but Meyer Mansion is not near walking distance if you have elderly parents living with you who wants to use upcoming Katong Park MRT station.
The Tanjong Katong MRT station is actually a minutes walk or at least within somewhat comfortable walking distance for younger folks from Meyer Mansion or 79 Meyer Road.

If you have a car, which you probably do, a 10 minutes drive via Marina Coastal Expressway and you are in town. That is convenient.
The build quality and interior design of Meyer Mansion units makes you not even notice the size of Meyer Mansion unit living spaces, and that is testament to the quality of the interior designer, though the actual unit size is pretty in line with tiny little condos in Singapore.
There are 203 carpark lots for 200 Meyer Mansion units – a refreshing number as most condominiums in Singapore nowadays have way fewer carpark lots than units for sale! Finally! A condominium which realizes that us high SES people need cars!

Cons of Meyer Mansion:
Meyer Mansion location is convenient if you have a car. If you do not have a car, tough luck, so if you are intending to buy to rent to expats in the future, it can be a tough problem to solve, as there are equally good quality projects which are more convenient and cheaper for those without cars.
There are not many amenities or facilities at this Meyer Mansion luxury development at 79 Meyer Road due to its land size space. Meyer Mansion amenities are largely just a small gym, a lap pool, grand lawn, a function room, indoor gym, BBQ pavilion – I guess, bare minimum compared to full condo facilities.
I need not type it out for anybody with a brain to know what are the cons of Meyer Mansion – the prices. It is clearly and definitely overpriced, and sold by unethical real estate agents perpetuating lies that a freehold condo cost more than a freehold and much larger landed fully developed property along the same Tanjong Katong road in the surrounding landed enclave, and within the same district 15. While Meyer Mansion should definitely cost more than a similar condo at another less prestigious address, Meyer Mansion prices are still at least 30 to 50% over priced.
The fact Meyer Mansion is developed by largely the same people (Guocoland and their partners) as those who did Wallich Residences should make you know that they are just out to drive property prices up at a rate that is unsustainable – good luck trying to get any kind of rental yield on your property at Meyer Mansion if you buy at the prices they ask for.
In addition, good luck trying to sell at higher prices during resale when almost all freehold landed homes across the road costs less and you own the land.
Key factors you need to note about Meyer Mansion development at 79 Meyer Road:
For views, you get unblocked views of the sea at higher levels at Meyer Mansion only, as lower bedroom sea view at Meyer Mansion is blocked by trees at East Coast Park beach.
Guocoland developer has a habit of severely over bidding existing properties then over pricing its new launches
Meyer Mansion developer or its real estate agents loves to boast about its projects track record that the developer is the same who built Wallich Residence, which sold the most expensive condominium in Singapore’s history.
It is a joke, Guocoland asked for 100 million for that unit, and got around 70 million or so. From this, you can derive two things:
- This Guocoland developer is asking for stupid prices for new launches – if they asked for stupid prices for one unit do you think they’re not purposely overpricing EVERY single unit including those at Meyer Mansion? Duh, they are. The asking for 1 bedroom units Meyer Mansion price starts at around 1.4 million, and goes up to 4 to 6 million for the larger Meyer Mansion units. Complete bollocks. Remember – it is not your duty to ensure greedy property developers get their profit, it is THEIR fault they overpaid in the first place with increasingly ridiculous en bloc home purchase price. Let them pay the price and lose money on this 79 Meyer Road development by being harsh on negotiations.
- Unless you like that you paid the most premium for a condo unit compared to everyone else you know, negotiate and lowball the crap out of the agents if you are interested in a unit at Meyer Mansion. Walk away and buy a landed property right across the road if they do not accept your lowball offer. Cheaper and more prestigious – and you actually own a mansion rather than a condo termed a ‘mansion’.
Meyer Mansion included the above photo in their property e brochure, showing real mansions with laid back charm which used to dominate this East Coast Park sea side area in the past, and that is where they got the inspiration for the development name Meyer Mansion from.
My view? Distasteful. Just smacks of greed, shows you how a handful of unethical developers are bidding up prices and selling tiny apartments at jacked up and artificially inflated prices in the market. They should rename Meyer Mansion or not show this.

Summary of key to look out for when it comes to Meyer Mansion:
Meyer Mansion development has a good address and is situated in a good neighbourhood at 79 Meyer Road, Tanjong Katong, and district 15. But be wary about any asking price by the developer, because getting positive rental yields or potential resale at any profit (even $1) is nearly impossible if you buy without negotiating.
Meyer Mansion has horrible prices unless you love over spending in which case you better check your loan eligibility. This is especially so when it comes to the larger unit types at Meyer Mansion.
Here’s a recommendation, get a nearby freehold landed in Singapore just 50 to 100 metres away, you own the land instead of getting a condo, and its cheaper too!
For those who are TLDR:
- Great quality build within Meyer Mansion – both the Meyer Mansion condo facilities, amenities as well as interior design
- Great location if you have a car and has a prestigious address 79 Meyer Road
- Piss poor pricing which is like garbage and is overpriced
- E brochure showing the real (actual) mansions of the past makes it feel distasteful when Meyer Mansion apartment is so tiny
- Buy if you would like, but negotiate very hard during your sales enquiries and questions during your appointment at the Meyer Mansion showflat. Meyer Mansion is at least 30 to 50% overpriced, if you can get it done, then Meyer Mansion condo is a good deal. The main downside to this development is the selling price, so if you can get it 30 to 50% cheaper, Meyer Mansion is a great deal.
