Verdun House En Bloc Sold To James Koh of Fragrance Group

This Marks the 6th En Bloc Site Sold in 2022 and Golden Mile Complex follows Up…

Fragrance Group’s chief executive James Koh won the tender bids for the Verdun House collective site as he emerged as the top bidder.

The amount he acquired for the 6 Verdun Road freehold site is around S$55.1 million, according to Delasa, a property consultant and investment sales.

Apartment owners would earn between S$2.1 million and S$2.8 million at this sale price, while retail owners will receive between S$5.7 million and S$7.5 million.

The owners of 15 of the 16 strata-titled units have agreed to the sale acquisition, which is subject to Strata Titles Board approval.

Delasa earlier stated that they were looking for S$55 million for the en bloc sale which was relaunched on March 23 this year.

It was previously put up for sale in March 2018, with a target price of S$60 million.

On the prospective commercial gross floor space of 30,727 square feet, the ultimate transaction price of S$55.1 million equates to S$1,793 per square foot (sq ft).

The commercial building, which was built in the 1980s, now has four stores and cafes on the ground level and 12 flats on the higher levels.

With a plot ratio of 4.2, the freehold property has a land size of 7,300 sq ft and has been marked for commercial use under the URA 2019 Master Plan.

According to Delasa, there will be no development fee if the property is redeveloped to its potential gross plot ratio.

The marketing campaign for Verdun House, according to Delasa CEO Karamjit Singh, requires a “differentiated strategy” from most usual en bloc sales, which are often sold to property developers for their immediate redevelopment possibilities.

“While Verdun House freehold site could be redeveloped, it offered better prospects as a value-add proposition, with the investor sprucing up the building before refreshing the tenancies and income.”

He added that the majority of interest came from long-term local property investors who are familiar with the area.
