After failing in their first bid in 2018, the owners of Jansen Mansions made their second attempt at a collective sale, with the reserve price lowered from $22 million to $19.8 million, reported Singapore Business Review citing PropNex.

The $19.8 million price works out to a land rate of $879 per sq ft per plot ratio (psf ppr), inclusive of the development charge as well as the 7% bonus balcony space.

Situated at 25 Jansen Road within the Kovan area, Jansen Mansions occupy a 1,541.5 sq m site which has a 999-year leasehold tenure that starts from 1 September 1876.
