Grand Building En Bloc Sale 2022

Grand Building En Bloc Sale 2022

Grand Building, a commercial plot located within prime district 1, has been put up for collective sale again with a reserve price set at S$195 million.

Edmund Tie & Company, the exclusive marketing agency for the prime commercial site which located at 17 Phillip Street, originally put it up for sale on October 28 last year, with the tender ending on December 7.

The Grand Building has been marked for commercial use under the URA’s Master Plan 2019, with a plot ratio of 15 and a building height limit of more than 50 storeys, and rests on a 999-year site area of around 5,313 square feet (sq ft).

There is no Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty and no restriction on foreign ownership of the site because it is a commercial property.

Grand Building is unaffected by the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) with the recent announcement on restrictions on strata subdivision of commercial properties in the Central business area.

The prime site is located just outside of the identified areas, according to Swee Shou Fern, head and executive director of investment advisory.

This gives the incoming buyer options in their strata subdivision development project, subject to planning permission, she noted.

According to Swee, a number of CBD commercial buildings have changed hands in recent months, demonstrating investors’ sustained confidence in the office sector.

“However, commercial properties, particularly those in District 1, are often closely controlled by existing landlords and are rarely put up for sale,” she continued.

“As a result, Grand Building presents a once-in-a-lifetime chance for investors to purchase a standalone prime commercial property in the highly desired Raffles Place.”

The prime en bloc site is conveniently located close to Telok Ayer and Raffles Place MRT interchange. Besides that, it is proximity to F&B, malls and entertainment amenities.

The tender for the Grand Building collective sale site will close on May 5, 2022 at 3 pm. (Go Top)

Sixth Avenue Centre En Bloc Relaunched – Bukit Timah Collective Sale

Sixth Avenue Centre En Bloc Sale 2022

Sixth Avenue Centre, a freehold mixed-use development site at Bukit Timah Road, has been put up for collective sale again via public tender.

The prime district 10 site has an unchanged reserve price of S$85 million, announced by Cushman & Wakefield, their appointed marketing agent.

In November 2021, Cushman & Wakefield issued a tender for the Sixth Avenue Centre. The property was previously listed for collective sale in 2018, with an indicated guiding price of S$90.5 million.

The market was “reeling from a wave of cooling regulations” that went into effect in December 2021, according to the real estate services company’s last tender.

“As a result, most developers were unwilling to commit to properties with any residential component, preferring to ‘wait and see’ how the real estate market would respond during that period,” the report stated.

The current reserve price of S$85 million equates to a land cost of S$1,861 psf ppr, this includes a modest development fee and the bonus balcony area.

The Sixth Avenue Centre is a mixed-use development with seven retail stores and eighteen residential units.

The prime property has a maximum authorized gross floor area (GFA) of 4,183 square metres (sq m), with commercial use allowed for up to 40% of the total GFA and residential use allowed for the remaining 60%.

In 2018, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) approved the residential section of the project to be kept as serviced homes, with the future developer being required to amalgamate a piece of a leftover state property at the splayed corner junction at Sixth Avenue.

The additional 85 sq m of land is estimated to lower the whole site’s average land cost to S$1,788 psf ppr.

“With assured solid demand for contemporary retail, lifestyle, and residential ideas, Sixth Avenue Centre will undoubtedly be a distinctive landmark and a limited edition offering,” said Christina Sim, director of capital markets at Cushman & Wakefield.

The flats were designed with the family in mind. The units were finally put on the market in the mid-1980s.

Thomson View Condo En Bloc Sale Relaunch 2022 – S$950 million

Thomson View Condo En Bloc Sale 2022

The Thomson View Condominium located at 7 Bright Hill Drive in District 20, has been put up in the collective sale market again, with a target price of S$950 million, according to their exclusive marketing agent OrangeTee Advisory.

The condo was launched for en bloc sale in November 2021 at the same price, but was unsuccessful due to market cooling measures planned in December.

“The potential land purchasers opted to hold off on their purchasing choices due to the short window of less than one month between the announcement of the new cooling measures in December 2021 and the tender closing in January 2022,” said Marcus Oh, managing director at OrangeTee Advisory.

According to Oh, the last launch drew multiple inquiries and site visits from interested parties.

Thomson View condo was built in 1987 and has 200 flats, 54 townhouses, and a store unit on a 50,196.9 sq m land.

Under the Master Plan 2019, the land is allocated for residential development with a gross plot ratio of 2.1.

According to OrangeTee, after factored in an additional 7% bonus GFA, an estimated differential premium of S$288.8 million for land intensification, and about S$332.3 million in upgrading premium for a new 99-year lease, the huge reserve price translates to a land rate of S$1,294 psf ppr.

A Pre-Application Feasibility Study on the number of units that might be rebuilt on the redevelopment site has been submitted for review by the Land Transport Authority and is awaiting clearance.

Thomson View condo site is in District 20, close to Thomson Plaza, the Upper Thomson MRT station, and natural areas including MacRitchie Reservoir Park and Lower Peirce Reservoir Park.

With a scarcity of residential housing in District 20, the redevelopment site should pique the curiosity of potential land purchasers, according to Oh.

Its excellent location would also allow developers to “create a unique property with strong capital appreciation potential and good rental returns,” he said.

Thomson View Condominium’s tender will close at 3 p.m. on June 8, 2022. (Go Top)
