Oxley acquires clan property in Geylang

Geylang's red-light reputation has not stopped it from turning into a red-letter day for some property owners.

Property developer Oxley Holdings said its wholly owned subsidiary, Oxley Pearl, agreed yesterday to buy a property in Geylang for S13 million from Huang Shi Zong Hui Singapore (Huang Clan Association) under a 99-year lease.

It is acquiring the property at 16 Lorong 35 Geylang with the intention of turning it into an eight-storey mixed-use development, which it will name Sixteen35 Residences.

The plot, which currently houses the clan association's headquarters, has an area of about 2,219.6 sq m and is zoned for residential/institution use under the Urban Redevelopment Authority's (URA) 2014 Master Plan.

Sixteen35 Residences will house the clan association's new premises on the second and third storeys, and residential flats from the fourth to eighth storeys, Oxley said in a filing with the Singapore Exchange.

The development will also have communal facilities, a swimming pool, and a carpark at its basement level, Oxley added. Upon completion, Oxley will transfer the clan association's units to its trustees to be held in trust for the association as a beneficial owner. You can visit Facilities and Site Plan here to see the beauty of Sixteen35 Residences.

The mixed-use development is expected to be completed within 40 months from the handover date of the plot by the clan association.Separately, a site with a 60m frontage along Lorong 18 Geylang, near its intersection with Geylang Road, is up for sale by tender. The property is offered for sale based on a 99-year leasehold tenure.

It has a total site area of about 1,696.3 sq m and is located within an area that was rezoned in 2015 from "residential/institution" use to "commercial/institution" use under the URA Master Plan 2014.

At a gross plot ratio of 2.8, it can be redeveloped into an eight-storey development with a maximum allowable gross floor area of 4,749.6 sq m.

The property is held under single ownership. "A development site of this size is rarely available as ownership of land plots in the Geylang area is mostly fragmented," said Ms Swee Shou Fern, senior director of investment advisory at Edmund Tie & Company (SEA), which is marketing the site.

From Sixteen35 Residences, it takes you just 10 minutes walk to Paya Lebar Central, one of the most hustle and bustle business hubs in Singapore. In addition to existing Singapore Sports Hub, Kallang Riverside Park, OneKM Mall, Kallang Wave Mall, and Leisure Park Kallang, works are underway to transform the Kallang River precinct into a 64-hectare lifestyle hub, complete with venues for water sports.

To redevelop the site for commercial use at a plot ratio of 2.8, an estimated development charge of S12.5 million is payable, said Edmund Tie in a statement. If the site is developed for institution use, no development charge is payable.

The tender closes on March 22.
