A commercial site was put out for sale by the URA, the parcel with a surface of 950,593 sq. ft. having specific guidelines to be respected by the developer that will win the bid. According to URA, the future development could have up to 45 stories, although the majority of the space available must be dedicated to the making of offices. More precisely, 70% of the development has to be used in this direction, while the rest could easily be utilized for the making of residences, hotel, or shops, according to the future plans of the developer.

A popular nightspot in Jiak Kim Street is available for sale

A spot that used to attract high numbers of people that were looking for entertainment in the evening, Zouk is now a location that is up for sale for any developer that is interested in investing in the area. The glory days of this location on the Jiak Kim Street are over, as a new chapter waiting to be opened by the developer that is going to bid the biggest sum to get this particular spot. The tender is about to open soon, so everybody interested in this particular sale should prepare a strategy that will provide the desired results.


How did it all start? A few months ago a developer that was interested in Zouk’s location promised to bid at least $689.4 million to get it. Seeing that there is a significant interest in this particular location, it was considered suitable for a tender to take place. The site has a total area of 13,482 sq. meters, each sq. foot having a starting price of $1,250, considering the bid mentioned previously. Specialists think that the space provided by the former Zouk is more than enough for a residential project that foresees 36 stories, which means an approximate number of 525 apartments and a ground floor that could easily have a commercial purpose.

Land supply raised

There would probably be more development sites which would be further available in order to meet the ultimate demand for lands from the developers who show keen reactions to capitalise on getting property market recovered. But analysts also go on to warn that the slight stick of supply for nearly about next five to six months may not be sufficient enough in order to satisfy these developers and specially for the ones who have been aggressively engaging in bids recently for the sites.


The Government land sales programme consists of around 16 sites for the second half of this year. These could be added up to about 8,125 privatised homes, which is up from 7,465 units which was released in the first 6 months of 2017.


There is a demand for even more residential plots to ensure that they possess an adequate or appropriate pipeline supply for new private housing projects in order to meet the demands and needs of the growing population in future. Whilst keeping this in mind, the demand for new private homes have risen in just no time. This new allocation is deemed as conservative which is stated by market watchers as it is felt that it is impossible to meet the demand of developers as well.

Eunosville may make way for 1,399 new homes

The collection of sales made over here in the market is striving to steer ahead along with potential sales of private organisations for a sum of $765 million, estate Eunosville. This could be one of the 2nd highest price being imposed for a property like this.


Eunosville, which consists of 330 units, which is being built in the late 1980’s could expand to having around 1,399 units altogether with the new project proposal brought up.


Surprisingly the particular site has been given away or else been bought by a Jardine Matheson holding unit, land MCL at a ridiculous price which was not made to be expected at all.


This has been one of the 4th most successful sale within this year in spite working on to recover developer’s residential property optimism.


The highest achieved sale which stands in second place is Eunosville, which is situated nearby the MRT station of Eunos. After it was sold by Farrer Court for a sum of $1.34billion in the year 2007,   stated by Orangetee marketing agents. It Was Indeed the second try of the estates after the unsuccessful result of a bid in 2013.


More than 17 percent stands as the premium which the owners had insisted in having for $643 million towards $653 million.


Constant rise in market improvements are also seen in sales for primary homes, which makes developers to start creating strategic level acquisitions over land in order to create a position for them self towards a recovery in the current market.


Eight potential bidders were attracted towards competitive market bids over the area between Changi road and Sims Avenue. This was for the tender of 376,713 sq. Stated by Mr.Oh to the Straits Times.


In a whole with all inclusive of government extra charges being added, the cost accumulates to an amount of $909 per Square feet for a single plot. The state accepts these payables in order to intensify the use of land to a gross amount ratio of 2.8 along with adding up a lease to 99years freshly.


As mentioned before that this project was built in the late years of 1980’s, 71 years have been laid on as the lease. Towards six complete residential blocks and also four complete walk by apartment plots which includes 75 units.


OrangeTee stated that each and every owner will possess the right of getting about $2.25million to about $2.41million towards completing the deal which is subjected to a particular sales condition.


One of the resident named Mr Ben Ong, who has been a loyal resident of Eunosville for the last 17 years is in a very sentimental condition about leaving although he is aware and identifies that the old structure is now in need of renovation.


It is indeed a very sad situation said Mr. Ben Ong. As this is the place where they brought up their children and not forgetting to mention that, the location is so convenient for them as well. Therefore for the resident, he may want to purchase an apartment unit here after the new structure is put up in the near future.


CBRE consultancy office stated that the newly completed units will be put out for sale for an average sum of $1,700 to almost $1,750 per single square feet.
