First land was awarded under the new religious land framework Singapore

According to zaobao.com.sg

Singapore Soka Association successfully awarded the first tender for the new religious land bidding framework with a price of 7.08 million. In the future, the religious land in Punggol will be developed into a Chinese temple.

According to the website of the Housing Development Board, the religious site at the junction of Sumang Walk and Sumang Link was launched on October 30 last year. The tender was closed on January 8 this year. Close to the land, it is the Piermont Grand EC (Executive Condominium) at Sumang Walk by CDL. The distance to the nearby Waterway Point is about 5 minutes.

According to the data, Singapore Soka Association was successfully awarded today (25th).

This religious land area is about 2007 square meters and the lease term is 30 years. In addition to the Singapore Soka Association, the other five parties bidding earlier were Diqing Forest, Amaranth Bacheng Temple Sanqinggong Co., Ltd., South Island Tianxindong Association, Confucius and Mencius Temple, and Sanqinggong Taoist Cultural Center.

According to the new tendering framework announced by the Ministry of National Development last September, the tendering activities for religious land will be carried out in two phases.

In the first stage, bidders must meet three conditions, namely, they must be registered religious groups, regularly organize activities that benefit the vast community of our country, and explain their demand for religious land.

After successfully passing the selected bidders, they can participate in the second stage of the bidding activity. The authorities will assess the financial situation of the bidders and then issue the lot to the religious group with the highest bidding price.

The launch of the private residence of Fenville Road in Sengkang is expected to attract six to eight bids

The Urban Renewal Authority launched a private residential lot on Fernvale Road for the market bidding, which is expected to supply about 605 residential units to the market. This is the third government land that has been launched within three kilometers of the site in the past six months. Prior to this, the government launched the executive condominium (EC) site in Yio Chu Kang EC and Anchorvale Crescent EC in December last year and June this year.

Analysts said that the location is close to last year's best-selling private residential project "High Park Residences", which is expected to attract a lot of developers interest, hoping to successfully emulate the excellent sales performance of High Park Residences.


According to the URA's notice, the Fenville Road section belongs to the main list of the Government Land Sale Plan (GLS) in the second half of this year. It is a 99-year leasehold with an area of ​​17,196 square meters and a maximum construction area of ​​515,590 square meters. .

Sengkang has launched a number of private housing projects in the past year or two, resulting in a seemingly oversupply situation in the region. However, some projects still have good sales results. For example, High Park, a hegemonic private house project launched last year, sold more than 1,300 units at a median price of less than 1,000 yuan.

Wang Dehui, director of Jones Lang LaSalle Research and Consulting, believes that the site is facing High Park Residences and may replicate the success of High Park Residences, such as the Thanggam LRT station and the Seletar Mall. Various conveniences such as schools have become another popular private housing project.

In addition to the location advantages, Wang Dehui also said that the latest data from the URA indicates that the property market is close to the bottom, and developers will be more confident to bid for lots.

 He predicted that the lot could attract 6 to 9 bids, and the highest price was slightly higher than the floor area ratio of $450 and $490 per square foot.

Digest of One Meyer Review by newlaunchguru.sg

This is the short version based on the latest review of One Meyer condominium by newlaunchguru.sg.

The most highly-anticipated new launch of Q1/2019 is finally here! One Meyer, a super rare freehold luxury condo project situated right in the heart of District 15 East Coast, one of the most prestigious and upmarket districts in Singapore. Not only that, this project is also one of the few condos in the area where residents can have stunning sea view without the traffic noise coming from ECP, thanks to the Katong Park standing in the front.

According to JLL, the marketing agent involved in the deal of One Meyer, this was the first time the residential property was put on sale. This attractive land received bids from more than 12 property developers ranging from small to big players. Several reasons may have led to that situation. First, One Meyer is well located next to the upcoming Katong Park Station set to be operational in year 2023 which is part of the Thomson East Coast line. Next, the site has a seafront and wonderful clear view of the Katong Park, just five stops away from Raffles Place and Shenton Way. This enables the future residents of One Meyer, e.g., cyclist, to reach the CBD via the cycling track of the beach. Sustained Land Ltd successfully acquired the bid with S$69 million paid. (Under|According to|Based on} the Master Plan, One Meyer site occupies 23,400 sq ft with the gross plot ratio of 2.1, and its land rate is estimated to be about S$1409 considering the development charges as well. Sustained Land plans to develop the ten storey high One Meyer into an 18 to 24 storey high accomodating up to 65-unit each having an average size of 753.5 sq ft. The gross profit ratio will shift from the current 2.09 to 2.1 if they obtain authorities' approval.

One Meyer situates at the crossroad of Meyer Place and Meyer Road in Katong which is a place known for many private properties. Lots of transport options are available to get to One Meyer, both public and private. Long travelling time by bus to other places of Singapore will be shortened with the operation of Thomson-East Coast Line by 2023. One Meyer will be served by Katong Park MRT, right at the doorstep. Driving to major places of interest in Singapore is also not a long journey with Singapore Sports Hub less than 7 minutes and CBD/Changi Airport no more than 15-min via ECP. While 23,400 square feet is not classified as a big condo project, One Meyer provides privacy and exclusivity. This one block building with the glass-facade appearance will for sure become the brightest star in Mayer Road. With reference to price list of 2-bedrooms, One Meyer should be a good deal if launch price is about S$2300-S$2400 according to competitive market analysis. Seaside Residences, a 99 year leasehold project, transacted at average of S$1900psf, is located in Bayshore, right at the opposite end of East Coast.

As for shortfalls - as a not-so-big condo project means One Meyer may not get to include so many varieties of facilities that other bigger projects own, notably The Belvedere and The Waterside nearby.

Advice For Buying Real Estate in Singapore

Singapore is again Southeast Asia’s hottest real estate market after four years in the doldrums, but investors are also parking their money in single of the region’s less-fashionable company centers, Ho Chi Minh City. The polar opposite from our last country, Singapore is the third wealthiest nation on the planet. one out of every ten households in the city-state has a net worth above US$1 million.


Singapore Economy Trend

As a result, property in the city is also among the world’s most expensive ones. Yet there’s still value in the market even though real estate prices often exceed US$15,000 per square meter (US$1,600 per square foot). That’s because Singapore boasts high growth despite having a developed, prosperous economy. Property values are also lower than Hong Kong, for example, which isn’t as wealthy and has more free land.

Foreigners can buy freehold condos like Amber Park in Singapore with some ownership restrictions. With that said, the government recently put forth cooling measures and now heavily taxes non-local buyers. Technically, foreigners can own landed houses in Singapore too. Be patient that foreigners need to go through some expensive and bureaucratic procedures. You should invest at smallest S$20 million and get approval from the Singapore Land Authority.

On the oppositie, condos in Singapore are more budget friendly. CDL, the developer of Amber Park condo, will also launch 2 new condominiums, the luxury Haus on Handy @Dhoby Ghaut and an Executive Condominium (EC) at Sumang Walk @Punggol. Sumang Walk EC being the only EC in 2019 will be highly sought after.
