It is a mere 10 minutes’ drive to the Orchard Road shopping belt and onenorth, a research and development hub which will be designated as Singapore’s first drone estate.

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.

Senior director of investment advisory Tan Chun Ming commented: “A Pre-Application Feasibility Study (PAFS) was carried out by an appointed traffic consultant and an in-principle approval of 703 units has been obtained from LTA on 6 September 2018 after the first tender closed on 18 July 2018.”

Although development charge rates across multiple sectors have increased during the September 2018 review, the rates for Spanish Village under the Non-Landed Residential use group remained unchanged.

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.

The tender exercise for the site will close on 20 November 2018 at 3:00 pm.
