Florence Regency En Bloc Sold in 2017
Florence Regency En bloc Sold for S$629 Million in 2017

Florence Regency owners initially provided a reserve price that is higher than S$600 million but the rejection of the bid made the situation suspenseful.

However, Logan Property Holdings finally made the acquisition of the property closing at S$629 million.

The purchase price goes with the property valuation according to Colliers International Consultancy & Valuation Singapore.

The marketing agent handling the sale, JLL, released the confirmation of the property sale and change of ownership, based on a private contract between the Florence Regency owners and the Singapore-based subsidiary of the Chinese development group.

Lee & Lee law firm stipulated the property agreement, which should not be less than the valuation.

The unsuccessful public tender of Florence Regency closed on September 27, which ushered a private deal before the middle of the 10-week open window.

The collective sale is valid for ten weeks after the closing of the public tender. ZACD Group executive director, Nicholas Mak, said that Logan Property’s acceptance of the price payment is good as it matches the S$629 million valuation of Florence Regency.

This is because of the lack of guarantee that the developer has in being successful in other en bloc public tenders. They also have no successful prediction under the GLS (Government Land Sales) programme.

Mak also observed that the land cost of the property is at S$842 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr), which follows the factoring of other imminent costs. It is basically a reasonable one in the context of the current real estate market.

Other anticipated costs are inclusive of the differential lease premiums at S$288.6 as well as the cost in connection with the development of additional built-up area. The latter reaches a GPR or gross plot ratio of 2.8.

Investor relations director of Logan Property, Derek Lee, reiterated the plan of the developer, which is putting up 1,400 units based on the site.

Three of the developers, which big for Florence Regency, refused to increase their prices in order to match the property valuation during an earlier stage.

According to analysts, such position reflected the fear of market saturation, which is normal within the area of Hougang-Sengkang.

The property is formerly an HUDC estate and presently has 336 units. Moreover, this is the first attempt of the owners to go for collective sales.

It is quite impressive to note that up to 80 percent general consensus of the owners was achieved with the initial proposal of the idea.

This also resulted in the approval of the en bloc sale in just a matter of three weeks. JLL’s regional director, Tan Hong Boon, stated that each unit owner residing at Florence Regency is most likely going to take away gross proceeds, which value between S$1.84 and S$1.89 million.
