Under the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s 2019 Master Plan, the site is uniquely zoned part “Commercial” with a Gross Plot Ratio (GPR) of 3.0, as well as part “Residential” with a GPR of 2.8. This allows redevelopment potential to reach up to a maximum permissible Gross Floor Area (GFA) of approximately 28,216 sq ft.

Major arterial roads and expressways such as the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE), Kallang Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE), and East Coast Parkway (ECP) provide seamless connectivity to other parts of Singapore. The site also boasts a short 10-minute drive to the Central Business District (CBD), Marina Bay and Tanjong Pagar.

Aljunied (EW9) and Dakota (CC8) MRT Stations are also located approximately 7 minutes’ and 10 minutes’ walk away respectively, providing ease and convenience in public transportation along both the East-West Line and Circle Line.

The owners are expecting offers above their reserve price of S$28 million. Including an additional development charge of approximately S$5.24 million payable to the authorities to maximise the GFA, this translates to a land rate of approximately S$1,178 psf ppr.
