The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has launched two sites at Sengkang Central and Hillview Rise for sale by public tender, with the bids to be evaluated under a concept and price revenue tender system.
The sites, which come under the confirmed list of the second half 2017 Government Land Sales (GLS) programme, can potentially yield around 1,235 housing units.
Zoned for commercial and residential use, the site at Sengkang Central has an area of 37,284.8 sq m and a maximum gross floor area (GFA) of 78,299 sq m.
URA noted that the mixed use development “is envisioned as an integrated community hub to meet the needs of some 20,000 residents in Buangkok”.
“The development is also a focal point and identity marker for the Buangkok neighbourhood. Hence, thoughtfully designed public spaces which are well integrated with transport and community uses will be key to the success of the development,” it added.
Meanwhile, the Hillview Rise site features a sizeable residential GFA of around 40,030 sq m “with a regular configuration that provides the economies of scale to maximise productivity gains”.
“The site is therefore a suitable test bed for innovative construction technologies or methods.”
The tender for the Hillview Rise site will close on 3 May 2018 while the tender for the Sengkang Central site will close on 21 June 2018.
