Singapore Residential Site Sells to Billionaire Quek for S$980 Million

By Klaus Wille
March 19, 2018, 11:27 AM GMT+8

Billionaire Quek Leng Chan’s GuocoLand Ltd. and its joint venture partners are buying Pacific Mansion near Singapore’s business district for S$980 million ($743 million), the biggest purchase of a residential site for redevelopment in more than a decade.

The price is also the highest in the current so-called en-bloc cycle, and only surpassed by the S$1.3 billion sale of Farrer Court, according to CBRE, which brokered the transaction. The price for the 290-unit development works out to $1,987 per square foot, based on the amount of space the the buyer is able to rebuild.

The transaction signals demand from developers for older residential sites for redevelopment even as Singapore increased the buyer’s tax on homes exceeding S$1 million last month. Collective apartment sales for redevelopment in the first two months of 2018 totaled more than S$3.1 billion, almost double the S$1.66 billion seen in same period during the last en-bloc market peak in 2007, Nomura analyst Min Chow Sai wrote in a note dated Feb. 19.
