Enbloc News: Third time lucky for Green Lodge?

By The Folks @PropTalk - April 18, 2012 1 Comment
Green Lodge, a freehold property at Toh Tuck Road, has been put up for collective sale with an indicative price of $195 million.

Property consulting firm DTZ Debenham Tie Leung (SEA) is conducting the tender exercise for the sale, which will close on May 15 at 3pm.

Green Lodge can be developed into a five-storey condominium development at a gross plot ratio of 1.4. It sits on a land area of about 14,035.3 sq m (151,075sqft).

Based on the indicative price, DTZ said the land price translates to $846psf ppr, inclusive of about 8.9% balcony space for which Development Charge is not payable.

"The property would draw keen interest from developers looking to build a condominium development with full communal facilities in an established residential enclave," said Shaun Poh, DTZ's senior director for Investment Advisory Services and Auction.

DTZ said the property is located near the upcoming Beauty World MRT Station on the Downtown Line which will be operational in 2015.

This is at least the third time that Green Lodge has put itself in the market. The last asking price was also around $195 million.

  1. Maybe we should ban people from taking into account balcony space when marketing the psf price and plot ratio. It's a litte confusing.

    Used to be simply $195m / 151,075 = $1,290 psf. To make it look cheaper, they use $195m / (151,075 x 1.4) = $921 psf ppr. Now, some use $195m / (151,075 x 1.4 x 1.089) = $846 psf ppr inclusive of balcony.

    Also, what happened to the basic maths principle of rounding up to the next dollar if the decimal point is halfway or more?
