The structure, designed in the brutalism architectural style, is “a visionary architectural masterpiece and is recognized as a monument of national pride,” according to Edmund Tie.

According to Teakhwa Real Estate, their sole marketing agent, the Singapore Property Authority is now evaluating the application for an IPA for the 10,968 square feet (sq ft) of remaining state land, and the result “may be anytime soon.”

“Obtaining an IPA will provide assurance to any possible purchasers when they bid for the prime site,” the marketing agent explained, adding that delaying the closing date will give developers more time to study and evaluate the larger site’s potential and land pricing.

The commercial building was placed up for collective sale in December 2021, with a reserve price of S$360 million, down from S$380 million in the previous attempt en bloc in 2019.

Sultan Plaza Redevelopment Plan

Developers has several options to redevelop the land: as a hotel, a mixed-use development, or a wholly commercial structure.

If the possible state property is approved, the collective sale site will expand to 63,439.8 square feet, with a gross floor space of 317,198.9 square feet.

The reserve price of S$360 million reflects a land rate of S$1,475 psf ppr, including projected expenses to acquire state land, difference premium, and lease top-up premium, for a new mixed-use development that is 40% commercial and 60% residential.

After accounting for the 7% bonus gross floor area, the average price will be S$1,450 psf ppr.

According to Teakhwa Real Estate managing director Sieow Teak Hwa, successful bidder needs to know that there is no (ABSD) additional buyer’s stamp duty required when purchasing for the commercial plot.

“Sultan Plaza has a unique location with several development possibilities. Developers are attracted to it because of its unusual downtown position, which is rarely available, as well as the owners’ fair asking price “The marketing representative stated.

“Most developers would still likely purchase land since their present stockpiles are running short, “the agent added, “but will probably chose mid-sized and more reasonably priced sites, notably those within a price range of S$200 million to S$500 million.”

The marketing agency pointed out that well-located residential or mixed-use properties with unique characteristics that appeal more to Singaporean purchasers – who would be the least affected by the new regulations – will have a high chance of finding a buyer.
