The 26-unit walk-up development located at 52 to 62H Tanjong Katong Road has been put up for collective sale at a guide price of $63 million. This release is the second try made by the owners, as the property already was launched for tender at an indicative price of $65.5 million in July last year.

Sole marketing agency Huttons Asia informed that the property received several offers below the asking price. Spanning an area of 32,397 ft, the four-storey building is zoned for residential use with an allowable gross plot ratio (GPR) of 1.4 and could potentially yield 45,356 ft of gross floor area upon redevelopment. An average size of 915 ft could accommodate approximately 49 residential apartments.

The guide price implies a land rate of $1,401 per square foot per plot ratio, including a estimated land betterment charge of $530,000. However, taking into consideration a 7% bonus balcony gross floor area, the land rate could be lowered to $1,375 psf ppr.

Terence Lian, head of investment sales at Huttons Asia, believes that this property will have a high demand from buyers searching for their new homes in District 15. He denotes the successful launch of Tembusu Grand, a 638-unit condominium by City Developments and MCL Land, as an example of the market’s buoyancy.

The location of the property, just 500m away from the Paya Lebar MRT Station and a 10-minute drive away from the CBD, gives the area more charm. Closeby, one can find shopping malls such as PLQ mall and Parkway Parade, as well as recreational facilities like the Singapore Sports Hub and East Coast Park. Additionally, the Katong and Joo Chiat areas provide an extensive selection of F&B and cafe options.

Two well-maintained conservation shophouses located in District 8’s Jalan Besar/Little India precinct have been put up for sale with a guide price of $13 million. With a total floor area of 5,360 sq ft, the two-storey shophouses coupled with its mezzanine space is available at a price of $2,425 psf. The properties come with a land area of approximately 2,870 sq ft and a frontage of 11.4 metre along Perak Road.

These shophouses are conveniently situated merely three minutes away from Rochor MRT Station and have been approved for use as a backpackers’ hostel. Gracelynn Zhu of PropNex Shophouse Elites, which is the property’s marketing agency, reveals that the current owner has received multiple offers from potential tenants, despite their well-kept condition and ideal location surrounded by amenities and close to the Bugis area. However, vacant possession will be provided to the new owner who can then decide which type of tenant would best suit the property.

Post-pandemic, the recovery of the tourism sector has been remarkable, thus making these shophouses a great investment for hostel operators who plan to tap into the renewed interest in accessible accommodation among travellers. On the other hand, investors seeking a rental and capital growth will likely be attracted to the property’s estimated potential of achieving a gross rental yield of over 3%. Furthermore, no additional buyer’s stamp duty is payable since the properties are zoned for commercial use.

The close of tender will be on 8th May 2021 at 3pm. During the auction, one should take note of the recent transactions of properties situated on Perak Road.

In conclusion, the shophouses at 6 and 7 Perak Road may prove to be a smart purchase for both investors and hostel operators, due to its convenient location and strategic positioning, relatively low cost and rental potential. The overall condition of the building is well-maintained, thus requiring minimal refurbishment. The new owner will be provided with vacant possession and not forget the absence of additional buyer’s stamp duty.…

The tender for a 99-year leasehold residential government land sale (GLS) site at Lentor Gardens saw GuocoLand and Intrepid Investments (a subsidiary of Hong Leong Group) joint venture partners submitting a $486.8 million bid, translating to a land rate of $985 psf per plot ratio (psf ppr).

Mark Yip, CEO of Huttons Asia, noted that the bid was the lowest for a land parcel in the Lentor precinct. This was the first residential GLS tender to see only one bid since the Silat Avenue GLS site in 2018, which was won for $1.035 billion by a consortium led by UOL Group.

The last two residential GLS sites offered in the Lentor area were Lentor Central and Lentor Hill (Parcel B). Lentor Central was awarded to a consortium comprising China Communications Construction, Soilbuild Group Holdings and United Engineers with a $481.03 million bid ($1,108 psf ppr). The top bidder for Lentor Hills (Parcel B) was TID (a joint venture between Hong Leong Group and Mitsui Fudosan) with a bid of $276.36 million ($1,130 psf ppr).

Prior to this, a GLS site at Lentor Hills Road (Parcel A) was sold for $586.6 million ($1,060 psf ppr) in January 2022 and the 598-unit Lentor Hills Residences, developed by GuocoLand, Hong Leong Holdings and TID, is expected to be launched soon.

GuocoLand’s launch of the 605-unit Lentor Modern integrated development saw 84% of the units sold on launch weekend. Based on caveats lodged, the project is 88% sold at an average price of $2,104 psf.

Steven Tan, CEO of OrangeTee & Tie, believes that the eventual launch at the Lentor Gardens site could see units priced around $1,950 to $2,050 psf.

It is estimated that all seven residential sites at Lentor could bring about some 3,500 units to the area and possibly 11,000 new residents. Potential homebuyers are likely to be drawn to the connectivity to public transport and recreational facilities, as well as its proximity to schools such as CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School.

GuocoLand envisaged the development to comprise of 533 units with 600 sqm of childcare facilities. Leonard Tay, head of research at Knight Frank Singapore, points out that developers may have been deterred by the risky outlook and the risk of being subject to Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty if they are unable to sell all units within five years.

Two other GLS sites at Lentor, a at Lentor Central and Lentor Gardens, are still up for sale under the 1H2023 GLS Programme with Lentor Central expected to launch for tender this month.

The tender for the Lentor Gardens government land sale (GLS) site closed today with the joint venture of GuocoLand and Intrepid Investments submitting a $486.8 million bid and setting a new record for a land parcel in the Lentor precinct – a land rate of $985 psf per plot ratio (psf ppr).

GuocoLand are envisioning a 533-unit high-end residential development along with 600 sqm of childcare facilities. This is to complement the two other upcoming developments – Lentor Modern and Lentor Hills Residences – in their plans to transform the Lentor Hills estate to a premium residential area.

The last two residential GLS sites in Lentor, Lentor Central and Lentor Hill (Parcel B), were awarded last September. Lentor Central fetched the highest bid at $481.03 million ($1,108 psf ppr), while the top bidder for Lentor Hills (Parcel B) was TID (a joint venture between Hong Leong Group and Mitsui Fudosan) with a bid of $276.36 million ($1,130 psf ppr).

Meanwhile, Lentor Modern integrated development was launched last September and already saw 84% of its units being sold on launch weekend with an average price of $2,104 psf. GuocoLand purchased the GLS site for $784.1 million ($1,204 psf ppr) in July 2021.

Despite the fact that seven GLS sites in Lentor could potentially bring about some 3,500 new units to the area and 11,000 new residents, its proximity to public transport and recreational facilities as well as schools like CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School makes the area desirable to potential homebuyers.

OrangeTee & Tie’s CEO Steven Tan expects units at the Lentor Gardens site to be priced at around $1,950 to $2,050 psf. Two other GLS sites at Lentor; one at Lentor Central and Laurntor Gardens are still available for sale in the 1H2023 GLS Programme, with Lentor Central expected to launch for tender this month.…
