Tuesday, December 6, 2016 - 18:09

MCL Land has emerged the top bidder for the residential land parcel at Margaret Drive with a bid price of S$238.39 million, pitting against 13 other bidders.

This translates to S$997.85 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr) based on the maximum gross floor area of the site, which is big enough for 275 homes.

The 99-year leasehold site is nestled within an established residential enclave near the Commonwealth MRT station. It was a Reserve List site under the government land sales (GLS) programme that was triggered for tender after a developer committed to bid at least S$185.76 million for it.

The top bid from MCL Land is about 8 per cent higher than the second-highest bid from Allgreen Properties, which tabled a S$220.9 million bid for the site.
