New Private Residential Estate To Be Build In Forested Area Bordered by Lentor Drive, Yio Chu Kang Road and Tagore Road

Channel News Asia reported plans to build new private residential units in a 38 hectare plot of land delineated by Lentor Drive, Yio Chu Kang Road and Tagore Road. This land is now forested so with the scarcity of land in Singapore, another patch of forest has to make way for housing purposes. The CNA article can be found by clicking here. Its a matter of time before land sales start to show up for plot. This Google satelite map shows the location of the land and is basically the forested area in the centre.

To quote, "The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) said there will be high-rise, medium-rise and landed housing options alongside parks and a variety of amenities. Other plans in the pipeline include a mixed-use development next to the new MRT station. The development of the area will be phased in tandem with the opening of the new MRT station, which is expected to be around 2020." The MRT station mentioned is the future Lentor station on the Thomson Line.

In Dec 2013, we blogged about Queenstown S9a, a piece of land sold as part of GLS for condo development. That article can be found here:

Just over a year later, the name of the condo has been revealed to be Commonwealth Towers. There will be two rather tall (43 storeys) towers with a total of 895 units. Queenstown has always been a popular area and there will be a lot of interest in this development.

Upcoming Residential and Commercial Integrated Development at Yishun Central

A mixed-use commercial and residential plot at Yishun Central was launched for tender on Feb 28, 2013 with the tender results announced on Sept 5, 2013. The tender was won by North Gem Development P/L and FC North Gem Trustee P/L, units related to Fraser Centerpoint P/L for $1.43 billion dollars. This was 47% higher than the next highest bidder, a consortium that includes Far East.  This price works out to be $1,077 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr) for the 99-year leasehold site, somewhat higher than the $750-850 psf ppr expected.

The plot of land located between Yishun Ring Road and Yishun Avenue 9, the location of the upcoming Junction 9 mixed development was sold at just $794.44 psf ppr so Frasers is betting on the benefits of the location raising the psf that investors are willing to pay. The plot of land at Yishun Central is right next to Northpoint Mall, Yishun 10 and Yishun Library, which explains the high bid by Frasers who  also owns Northpoint Mall. It's all about market domination and the track record of Northpoint which is also owned by Frasers.

The plans for the site include a 12-storey integrated development consisting of about 900 residential units sitting on top of a retail mall, community club and bus interchange. Subject to approval this development may also be connected to Northpoint via link bridges and a covered pedestrian promenade. Another big plus is that the Yishun MRT is just across the road (Yishun Ave 2), a big advantage over other mixed developments such as Junction 9. The commercial units in this development will benefit from the heavy foot traffic associated with bus interchanges and MRT stations and the attractiveness to shoppers of having a large number of shops in the same local area.

The residential units need to be attractively priced to sell as shown by recent launches such as Riverbank and RiverTrees Residences in Sengkang which generated a lot of interest because of the lower psfs. Reported estimates are in the $1300-$1450 range. "Skies Miltonia, a 99-year leasehold condominium project in the Yishun area recently transacted an median price of $1,070 psf and it is 1.7km from the nearest MRT station which is Khatib.
