A five-storey development comprising 44 apartments, Sutton Place sits on a site area of 8,657.0 sqm (approximately 93,185 sq ft). The site is regular in shape and is elevated away from traffic, overlooking surrounding developments.

Under the 2014 Master Plan, the site is zoned “Residential” with an allowable plot ratio of 1.6, and is not subject to a Pre-Application Feasibility Study (PASF). Subject to approval from the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA), the site can be redeveloped into a new condominium with 198 apartment units, at an average size of 753 sq ft.

Sutton Place is within 500 metres from Farrer Road MRT station on the Circle Line and is well connected to other parts of Singapore via Farrer Road, the Ayer Rajah Expressway (AYE) and the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE). The site is also a quick 10 to 15 minutes’ drive away to Orchard Road and the Central Business District.

With a strong locality, Sutton Place is conveniently situated in proximity to an array of amenities and food and beverage outlets within Holland Village, Chip Bee Gardens and Dempsey Hill. Better yet, the development is surrounded by popular schools, including Nanyang Primary School (within 1km radius), Raffles Girls’ Primary School, Nanyang Girls’ High School, The Chinese High School, Anglo-Chinese
School (International), Hwa Chong Institution and National Junior College.

The reserve price for Sutton Place is S$268.0 million. Subject to confirmation from the relevant authorities, a development charge of approximately S$17.88 million is payable for the development of the property, translating to a land rate of approximately S$1,917 psf ppr.

Ian Loh, Executive Director and Head, Investment and Capital Markets, Knight Frank Singapore, says, “Residential developments along the Holland Road / Farrer Road stretch have long been sought after by home buyers due to its proximity to multiple amenities, as well as established educational institutions.

“URA’s recent tender award of the Holland Village mixed-use development Government Land Sales site will further add to the vibrancy of this location. Despite recent cooling measures, the price quantum is still palatable and the potential for less than 200 units is a low-risk acquisition to developers.”

The tender for Sutton Place will close on 6 September 2018, Thursday at 3 pm.
