Tee Land Limited

TEE Land had intended to redevelop the site into a new residential project.

Tee Land has decided not to exercise its option to purchase Teck Guan Ville condo, which would have set the company back $60 million.

In an SGX filing, the company explained that it had arrived at the decision after taking into account the new property cooling measures’ impact on market sentiments and purchasers’ interest.

With this, the company will forfeit its one percent deposit on the freehold condo site.

On 28 June, Tee Land announced that it had entered into an option-to-purchase agreement to acquire the 3,928.8 sq m site at 338 to 364 Upper East Coast Road for $60 million.

The company had revealed that it would finance the acquisition by internal funds and bank borrowings, as well as plans to build a residential development on the site.

Tee Land “has decided to adopt a more prudent and circumspect approach towards new projects in the meantime, pending clarity on the industry outlook”, it said.
