Lake now mentions that the July 28 closing date has been prepared adhering to rate of interest registered by developers. “After opening the public tender in March we have actually remained in consistent contact with programmers and the rate of interest level in outstanding prime household sites has actually grabbed,” he adds.

The public tender for High Point, a 59-unit residence block at 30 Mount Elizabeth, will close on July 28, according to advertising broker Savills. The property was relaunched for cumulative sale on March 21 with a guide rate of $550 million, following a preceding attempt in 2021 that saw Hong Kong-listed Shun Tak Holdings abort its purchase of the building.

No closing day was set at the time of the release tender in March. Jeremy Lake, Savills’ managing supervisor for investment sales and also capital markets, was then quoted as saying that a closing day would certainly be selected once verified interest had been gotten from a minimum of one developer.

The guide quote of $550 million for the site calculates to $2,508 psf per plot ratio after factoring in the 7% reward GFA for balconies. The development charge payable for the 7% incentive GFA refers to $18.8 million.

Savills says the location can possibly be redeveloped right into a 36-storey ultra-luxurious tower of 98 units, assuming an ordinary dimension of 2,153 sq ft per unit. Developers can likewise choose to construct also wider units to deal with fresh need from ultra-high-net-worth foreign buyers. Citing deluxe condominium Park Nova as an example, Savills considers that 37 out of the 54 units available at Park Nova have been marketed since its launch last June at a typical price of $4,815 psf.

Lake concludes that supply of new ultra-luxurious condominiums will certainly remain “very constrained”, considered that the current cooling steps might make it tougher to obtain the 80% agreement needed to proceed with a collective sale, particularly for growths in the core central region (CCR) where foreign property is much higher. This is since foreign homeowners will have to pay a more costly ABSD (Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty) when they acquire a replacement property “as well as therefore may be less keen to participate in the cumulative sale,” he incorporates.
