Roxy-Pacific ties up with Tong Eng group MD to buy Kismis View in collective sale for S$102.75m

ROXY-PACIFIC Holdings and the group managing director of Tong Eng Group, Teo Tong Lim, have joined hands to acquire a residential leasehold site in the Upper Bukit Timah area for S$102.75 million.

Kismis View, a 43-unit development, has been collectively sold to a 60-40 joint venture between Roxy-Pacific subsidiary RP Ventures Pte Ltd and Mr Teo's private family office, TE2 Development Pte Ltd.

This is the third joint venture between the two groups, Roxy-Pacific said in a regulatory filing on Friday.

Under the 2014 Master Plan, the 90,863 sq ft site has a gross plot ratio of 1.4. The site may be redeveloped into a low-rise apartment development of up to five storeys, with a total gross floor area of about 139,929 sq ft including a 10 per cent bonus GFA for balcony.

The maximum number allowed would be 168 units based on the minimum average size control of 70 sqm, sole marketing agent JLL said.

The sale price of S$102.75 million reflects a land rate of about S$941 psf per plot ratio, including an estimated premium of S$17 million to top up the lease to a fresh 99-year term.

JLL regional director Tan Hong Boon said: "As the site has a high development baseline, there will be no development charge even for the 10 per cent bonus GFA for balcony. Should the developer maximise the GFA to 1.54, the land rate would reflect S$855 psf per plot ratio."

Owners would expect to receive gross sale proceeds of between S$1.6 million and S$3.3 million, he said.
