Chuan Park going for en bloc sale for $938 million


Chuan Park condo has been put up for sale through public tender by ERA Realty Network for an indicative price of $938 million. This comes after Flynn Park was sold en bloc in September for $371 million, making it the largest en bloc sale so far this year.

Located at Lorong Chuan, the 99-year leasehold condo comprises 444 residential units and two commercial units. The condo spans 400,588.72 sq ft, with the site having a gross plot ratio of 2.1, stated in the 2019 URA Master Plan.

This means that the site can be redeveloped up to a GFA of 841,236.30 sq ft, translating to 900 to 919 units. According to ERA, the price works out to be $1,042 per sq ft per plot ratio. The development charge is not payable due to the existing plot ratio as well.

While this is not Chuan Park’s first en bloc attempt, this marks the first tender exercise as it hit the required 80 per cent vote, according to Stanley Koo, Division Director of ERA Singapore. Due to Covid-19, it took almost a year to get the mandate.
