Hoi Hup Realty, Sunway Developments and Oriental Worldwide Investments also submitted a joint bid of $335.9 million.
According to Mr. Mark Yip, CEO of Huttons Asia, Residential land for redevelopment in Ang Mo Kio tends to attract many bidders. For example, Thomson Impressions had 18 contractors in 2014, The Panorama had 12 contractors in 2013, and Centro Residences attracted 14 contractors in 2007.
In addition, Mr. Mark Yip also added: "Based on the number of bids and the bid price, the competition for this prime location is fierce and "developers are forced to bid more than $1,000/psf per lot for a chance to protect (site)”
Following that, the EC site at Tengah Garden Walk attracted seven bids and the highest bid was $400.32 million (US$603 rate per lot) from Taurus Properties SG. The company is believed to be a joint venture consisting of City Developments Ltd and MCL Land.
The second highest bid was $400.19 million from CSC Land Corporation (Singapore), followed by a bid of $382.88 million from QJ-OS and Santarli Realty. Hoi Hup Realty and Sunway Developments also teamed up to submit a bid of $379.1 million.
This time, Mr. Mark Yip said that the Tengah Region has never launched any EC before and it is a relatively untested place for new EC development. Even so, the GLS site has also garnered a healthy level of engagement from developers who will be taking advantage of the planned HDB upgrade pool.
Ultimately, Nicholas Mak (head of research & consulting at ERA Realty) adds that based on the highest bid, this makes this land the most expensive land price for an EC parcel and project projects can be launched for around $1,200/m2, which is higher than the average launch price of new EC projects launching in the market.
