According to Mark Yip, CEO of Huttons Asia, the plot of land at Jalan Tembusu had a high possibility of getting activated as developers are starved of (available) well-located sites. He said that the site sat in District 15, which was a popular area for many buyers.
According to Nicholas Mak, head of research & consultancy at ERA Realty, the relatively large size of the site would come with correspondingly higher risks.
Mak said that while it was an attractive site, it would require bigger commitment from the developer. There could be more that 600 units to be developed. Because of the uncertain Covid-19 situation and risk of cooling measures, developers might be cautious to trigger this private residential land plot for tender.
Yip estimates that if the site is enabled and successfully sold, the winning price could be between $1,400 psf per plot ratio (ppr) and $1,500 psf ppr. However, Ong Teck Hui, senior director of research & consultancy at JLL, says that based on contemporary market conditions, the site could attract up to 15 bids and fetch a top bid of between $1,100 psf ppr and $1,200 psf ppr.
