On 26 Nov 2015, tender was triggered for a government land sale (GLS) site at Siglap Road next to Victoria School and opposite Mandarin Gardens. The tender will close on 14 Jan 2016. This Siglap Road land parcel is part of the GLS in 2nd half of 2015.
The 99-year leasehold private residential land parcel of 207,848 square feet in size can yield an estimated 750 new launch residential units. It has a 3.5 gross plot ratio and a maximum permissible gross floor area of 727,467 square feet.
Analysts predict that competition will be good considering the attractive location this plot sits on. It is not just next to Victoria School, it is also within the vicinity of Victoria Junior College, CHIJ Katong Convent, Ngee Ann Primary School, Tao Nan Primary School, Global Indian International School, Rosemount International School / Kindergarten and Sekolah Indonesia Singapura. Transport wise, the condo site is just a short stroll to the upcoming Siglap MRT station (Thomson-East Coast Line TEL). In addition, there is the beautiful expanse of the East Coast sea literally at the doorstep of this Siglap Road condo site.
Property analysts have differing views regarding the upcoming top offer. In Today Online dated 27 Nov 2015, Dr Lee Nai Jia, regional head of Southeast Asia research at property consultancy DTZ estimated that at least 6 to 8 bids will be received and the top bid may range from $574 million to $654 million, or S$790 to S$850 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr).
On the other hand, Mr Nicholas Mak, executive director at SLP International Property Consultants projected that this site could attract about 7 to 15 bids given the site’s attractive attribute with it fronting the unblocked East Coast sea. It is indeed rare to get a GLS residential site in the East Coast area in the first place. The top bid, he said, could be in the range of $600 million to $635 million, or S$825 to S$873 psf ppr. Mr Mak pointed out that as the site area is rather large, the bids would likely come from big property developers and consortium.
