Spanish Village is strategically located along Farrer Road, a mature and affluent residential estate in prime District 10. Sitting on sprawling grounds of 30,793.4 square metres (sq m) or 331,457 square foot (sq ft), the elevated site presents an opportunity to create a landmark development amidst a prestigious enclave.

Situated close to the Singapore Botanic Gardens, a 158-year-old tropical garden and the country’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, Spanish Village enjoys the tranquillity and majestic views of the surrounding greenery.

Under Master Plan 2014, the site is zoned for Residential use with a gross plot ratio (GPR) of 1.6.

The property enjoys seamless connectivity. It is well-served by major roads and expressways such as Farrer Road, Holland Road, Pan Island Expressway (PIE) and Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE). It is a mere 10 minutes’ drive to the Orchard Road shopping belt and one-north, a research and development hub which will be designated as Singapore’s first drone estate. The CBD is just a 15-minute drive away. Farrer Road MRT station is approximately 275 metres from its doorstep as well.

Spanish Village has unrivalled convenience.

Not only is it directly opposite the Empress Road Market & Food Centre with many affordable, local delights, but it is also within proximity to a vibrant mix of eclectic lifestyle destinations such as Holland Village, Chip Bee Gardens and Dempsey Hill.

The area is surrounded by renowned schools such as Nanyang Primary School (within 1km), Raffles Girls’ Primary School, Nanyang Girls’ High School, The Chinese High School, Anglo-Chinese School (International), Hwa Chong Institution and National Junior College. The National University of Singapore is also a short drive away

A Pre-Application Feasibility Study (PAFS) was carried out by an appointed traffic consultant and an in-principle approval of up to 703 units has been obtained from LTA on 6 September 2018.

Despite the cooling measures introduced last year, the Collective Sale Committee (CSC) had come to a decision to launch the tender the third time as it is the final chance that Spanish Village, being a choice site with many positive attributes, can have a shot at the market this round.

The guide price is $882m, which reflects a land rate of $1,721 per sq ft per plot ratio (psf ppr) inclusive of a development charge of approximately $30m.

Owners are in the process of signing a supplementary agreement to lower the reserve price of their development to $828m.

The tender exercise for the site will close on 11 March 2019 at 3:00 pm.
