Mega private housing site in Dunman Road up for sale

SINGAPORE – A huge website in Dunman Road was put up for sale by public tender on Monday (March 14), adhering to the launch of a smaller plot in Pine Grove last week, in a quote to boost personal housing supply as unsold new supply hits record lows.

Situated next to Dakota MRT terminal and the Geylang River, the 99-year leasehold plot in Dunman Roadway extends 25,234.3 square meters and also has a maximum gross flooring location (GFA) of 88,321 sq m. It can yield 1,040 household units, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) said on Monday (March 14).

Huttons Asia’s senior supervisor of research study Lee Sze Teck stated this website will certainly examine designers’ cravings for big projects.

” The last mega task launch was Normanton Park. If involvement in the Dunman Road GLS tender is great, it will give confidence to the mega advancements seeking to go en-bloc,” he stated.

The tender for the website, which comes under the validated list of the government land sales (GLS) program for the initial half of the year, will certainly close on June 2. The Pine Grove parcel A site also closes on June 2.

URA will certainly also be getting rid of a white site in Kampong Bugis from the One Pearl Bank Developer get a list with instant impact, because of hold-ups in the conclusion of soil removal operating at the site. It said it will examine the growth staging prepared for the website.

Mr Steven Tan, president of OrangeTee & Connection, noted that there might be extra joint endeavors in the bidding for the Dunman Roadway site because of its dimension and expected financial investment quantum of greater than $1 billion.

Said Mr Tan: “We prepare for between four as well as 7 bidders. The top bid might range in between $1,250 and $1,350 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr), converting to an overall proposal of $1.188 billion to $1.284 billion. The prospective market price of the future growth could range between $2,300 to $2,400 psf.”

Ms Wong Siew Ying, head of the study as well as material, PropNex Real estate, thinks that designers might not be prevented by the site’s dimension, given that a variety of mega jobs have take-up prices of over 90 percent in recent times, as well as a reasonably restricted supply of brand-new personal homes in the location.

Future residences on the website should appeal to purchasers offered its proximity to the Dakota MRT station, many nearby amenities and schools.

“We estimate that this site tender can get a leading quote of around $1.235 billion to $1.331 billion, showing a land price of $1,300 to $1,400 psf ppr. A current GLS tender for a residential website in Jalan Tembusu was awarded in January 2022 for $768 million ($1,302 psf ppr),” Ms Wong added.

Analysts noted that a state tender for a site in Jalan Tembusu, located just 800 meters from the Dunman Roadway site, discovered eight bidders and was awarded in January this year for $768 million ($1,302 psf ppr).

Yet the Dunman Roadway website is most likely to draw fewer bidders due to the greater dangers involved, Mr Ong Teck Hui, elderly supervisor of research study and also consultancy at JLL, said.

He pointed out the instance of the white website at Marina Sight, which had only one tenderer at $1.508 billion, and also the Jalan Anak Bukit business and also domestic site, which was awarded to Far East Organization as well as Sino Team, which collectively submitted the highest possible quote of around $1.028 billion.

But there must be a fair demand for the Dunman Roadway website, given that unsold supply has gone down to 14,333 systems as of the fourth quarter last year and also programmers require to replenish their land bank.

“The tender might attract three to 5 prospective buyers, and the website is anticipated to fetch a leading bid of between $1.14 billion ($1,200 psf ppr) and also $1.24 billion ($1,300 psf ppr),” Mr Ong said.

CBRE’s South-east Asia research study head Tricia Song stated the Dunman Road site is just one of the most attractive sites on the GLS program as a result of its place attributes consisting of closeness to the Dakota MRT terminal as well as popular institutions as well as “unblocked views over a huge landed territory at its southerly border”.

“Future citizens will certainly also have straight accessibility to the Geylang Park Adapter, which runs along Geylang River and attaches seamlessly to Marina Reservoir as well as Gardens by the Bay, she added.

However the website lugs enhanced growth threats– a 35 percent additional purchasers stamp obligation on programmers should they not market whatever within five years, she kept in mind.

However, recent land sales have seen durable tenders, signaling the self-confidence of developers in the regional property market.

Ms Song pointed out the two estate growth land parcels just recently sold en bloc at $815 million or $1,488 psf ppr in Thiam Siew Avenue, a residential road of landed houses adjacent to Tanjong Katong Road.
