Writing property review articles for pre-launch development is a challenge. Limited information, especially the details of the development, like floor plans, type of facilities etc.

In these articles, I will share more on the surrounding of Penrose.

I started writing the Penrose Review on the 14th of August 2020. Penrose is officially launched on 26th September 2020. This development has an overwhelming response during the preview period and we have received more than 2 times of buyers express their interests to buy.

Other key important facilities in this development are the child care centre, two stories of 500-metre square spaces to accommodate the children within the development and also open to the public.
