The Peak Shoppes is situated at the heart of the capital; the government has experienced major challenges when it comes to the provision of basic services such as wastewater treatment, drainage, and public transport. The property is no different future residents will have to contend with these problems.
Traffic snarl-up is a major problem as the country has not upgraded its infrastructural capacity, especially in the capital, leading to a lot of hours being spent in traffic especially during peak hours both in the morning and evening.
My thoughts about the development
I find that the location of the property is in a prime area. With an increased number of property launches within the city, it’s interesting to see the price guide of the new projects as developers try to woo more buyers making it advantageous for many locals.
The reception of The Peak has been met with enthusiasm; the peak stylish bronze design stands apart from other residential development projects making the building iconic and most sought after.
In my opinion, the property is a wise investment decision it’s a no-brainer, the capital is a hub of lifestyle and tourist, and it’s only upwards from their onwards. The ever growing rental market within the vicinity of Peak Shoppes will guarantee high rental returns of over 55% over a period of 10 years.
For residents they will enjoy the benefits of being in the large development area is the cost of maintaining the estate and facilities as well as maintenance charges will be significantly lower as they will be cost-shared by all residents.
However, with increased foreign investments into the property market, there is an oversupply of residential condominiums within the capital its predicted that prices will plummet in coming years, as investors you should be wary and watch the property market keenly before investing in huge infrastructural projects like The Peak Shoppes.
