The owners of Far Horizon Gardens (FHG) has elected a collective sales committee, adding to the city-state’s growing list of collective sales hopefuls.

“The main motivation for the FHG collective sale committee is to address the ageing estate (35 years out of a 99-year lease), and to unlock the property value for the individual sub-proprietor,” said deputy chairman of the committee, Loh Choon Seng.

Situated at Ang Mo Kio Avenue 9, the 272-unit development has a land area of around 430,000 sq ft and a gross plot ratio of 1.4, reported Business Times. It is near Yio Chu Kang MRT station, as well as Mayflower and Lentor stations on the Thomson-East Coast Line, which is due in 2020.

The latest transaction for FHG involved the resale of a 1,948 sq ft unit for $1.62 million in December 2017, which works out to a unit price of $832 psf.

On the rental arena, a two- and three-bedroom unit was rented for $1,900 and $3,200, respectively, in December, showed statistics from the Urban Redevelopment Unit.

Meanwhile, the committee is now shortlisting managing agents for the estate, with the tender expected to be called in 2H 2018.
