Adjoining sites in Serangoon Rd up for en bloc sale

Business Times: Thu, Apr 12
TWO adjoining freehold residential sites - Serangoon Mansion and 23 Race Course Lane - have been put up for sale by tender.

Based on a guide price of $23 million, this translates to a land price of approximately $1,039 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr), assuming that no development charge is payable. Existing owners can expect sale proceeds ranging from $2.52 million to $2.58 million.

Under the 2008 Master Plan, both sites are designated "residential with commercial at first storey", with a gross plot ratio of 3.5. When combined, the two sites will have a total land area of 7,641 sq ft.

Buyers can opt to tender for both sites, or either one.
