Go on a shophouse tour with Georgia Caney as she shares her experience with shophouse living in Canvas House.
"I stayed here for 3 months as they had short term / month-to-month lets. It was amazing living in a shophouse walkup."
"This is the easiest option for ready-to-move-in walkup apartments with flexible leases in style in historic shophouses with renowned designs."
Charlotte, Brand Marketer
"The location gives you a great feel of daily life - upon stepping out of the shophouse, from all directions you’ll be able to find something interesting happening."
Colin, Design Director
In Singapore walk up apartments, as the name suggests, are apartments that are accessible only by staircases and lack elevator access. This is because they are mostly part of older developments, with many characteristics that differ from apartments built more recently. For example, these older walk-ups tend to be much more spacious and are housed in charming heritage buildings.
Walk-up apartments are the perfect rental option for singles, whilst Figment’s furnished apartments are large enough to accommodate couples and co-sharing friends.
Our shophouse walk-up apartments can comfortably accommodate up to two people. You might find that sharing a place with your significant other would be much easier than sharing one with a close friend. That said, Figment provides spacious shared common areas for you to let loose beyond the confines of your walkup.
Most walk-up apartments do not come with condo facilities, although some may offer basic features such as a barbecue area and pool. We'd argue that most of the amenities that come with Figment's walkups extend into the neighbourhood with walkable surrounds and great coffeeshops and bars a short distance away.
You can find walk up apartments in various conservation buildings around Singapore, including apartment blocks and shophouses. These buildings are located in prime liveable areas such as Joo Chiat and Tiong Bahru. These locations tend to be amenity rich and convenient to access.
According to the Council for Estate Agencies, to rent property in Singapore, you need to be a Singapore citizen or permanent resident. Non-citizens may rent if they hold an employment or work permit like an S-pass, a student pass, dependent pass or long term social visit pass. That said, even with foreigners holding legal residence, the problem is that most Singapore landlords may not be too pleased with a month-to-month lease agreement and would typically require at least a 1 or 2 year contract. Figment provides a much-needed. flexible alternative for walk-up apartment rentals with flexible lease terms and a 1-month notice period.
Foreigners can buy real estate in Singapore, with some restrictions around buying landed property. For non-landed property, foreigners can own as many walk-up apartments or condos as they can afford. There is no limit on the number of apartments they can buy.
