Singaporeans are more than familiar with the 5Cs as the traditional measure of success – and while success is relative, most will agree that owning an expensive condo in a prestigious neighbourhood hollers “I’ve made it!!” to anyone who sees it.
From penthouses in the sky to private balconies with literal million dollar views, here are eight super-expensive condos in Singapore that many of us can only dream of owning, and for all you mad hustlers out there – a goal to aspire to if you want to live that crazy-rich life.

The waterfront condo boasts its very own 13-metre-high waterfall as mesmerizing as Jewel Changi’s Rain Vortex, so you won’t ever need to travel all the way to the East just to marvel at a gorgeous indoor waterfall.
While this Instagam hotspot is open to the public, only residents have exclusive access to the condo’s 50-meter lap pool, Teppanyaki terraces, private dining rooms, lounges, and party zones.
