Experts attributed the strong interest received to the Tanah Merah Kechil Link site’s proximity to the MRT Station and its palatable land size, while the interest for the EC site at Yishun Ave 9 was ‘unsurprising’ as the last two EC sites were sold in 2014.

Tenders For Tanah Merah Kechil Link, Yishun Ave 9 EC Sites Closed

Regardless of the weak financial overview, the tenders for 2 Confirmed List Government Land Sale (GLS) sites received durable passion, with the leading quotes sent surpassing experts’ assumptions. The tenders for both sites closed on Thursday (30 October).

The residential with commercial in the beginning storey site at Tanah Merah Kechil Link brought in 15 proposals, with MCC Land submitting the top proposal of virtually $249 million or $930.33 per sq ft per story ratio (psf ppr).

“This is the highest possible variety of bids considering that the Holland Road commercial and household site (Concept as well as Cost) tender in Might 2018 which attracted 15 bids from 10 consortiums. This is also a lot higher than the 4 to 9 quotes seen for private household government land sales sites over the past 18 months,” stated Tricia Track, Head of Research for Singapore at Colliers International, who explained the website as the most appealing among the Confirmed Listing in 1H 2020 GLS.

She noted that MCC Land’s top bid comes 4.6% above the second-highest quote by Tucana Residential Pte Ltd and Tucana Commercial Pte Ltd at $889 psf ppr.

Wong Siew Ying, Head of Research and Content at PropNex, associated the solid passion received to the site’s distance to the Tanah Merah MRT Terminal as well as its tasty land dimension like Parc Central Residences EC.

With a leasehold period of 99 years, the site has an area of 8,880 sq m and an optimum acceptable gross flooring area of 24,864 sq m. It can yield 265 residential systems as well as 2,000 sq m of business area.

“The provision for commercial area at the first storey would certainly likewise been viewed as eye-catching considering that there are restricted features in the instant areas,” stated Wong.

On the other hand, the exec condo (EC) website at Yishun Avenue 9 brought in seven proposals, which remains in line with the 7 to 9 bids for EC plots following the cooling steps in July 2018.

With a leasehold period of 99 years, the website has a location of 21,514 sq m as well as a maximum GFA of 60,240 s m. It has to do with 1.4 kilometers from the Yishun MRT station and is expected to produce around 600 real estate systems.

Sing Holdings submitted the greatest bid of $373.5 million or $576 psf ppr.

Wong noted that the leading quote of $576 psf ppr is “the highest possible for an EC site following the $578 psf ppr for the Tampines Method 10 EC site granted in January 2019 and the record of $583 psf ppr for the Sumang Stroll EC site that was successfully tendered in March 2018”.

She included that the eager rate of interest for the website was unsurprising given that end-user demand is expected to be robust, given that the last two EC sites (The Requirement and Signature At Yishun) marketed within the location remained in Might 2014.

And since EC designers need to wait 15 months after acquiring a site before they can introduce the job available for sale, the Yishun Method 9 EC advancement would only be introduced in 2022.

“By then, it is likely that the effect of COVID-19 would certainly be compromised which the Singapore economy will certainly continue to recuperate, albeit slowly,” said Wong.

Desmond Sim, Head of Research for Southeast Asia at CBRE expects the respective quote prices for the two websites to establish a brand-new standard launch price for their respective markets and also property classes in the future.

Song anticipates MCC Land to introduce the Tanah Merah Kechil Weblink job at an ordinary rate of between $1,600 psf as well as $1,700 psf.

Wong, on the other hand, expects the future EC growth on Yishun Opportunity 9 to be launched from $1,100 psf to $1,200 psf.
