Queen Astrid Gardens, a four-storey residential development, has been relaunched for collective sale, with the owners expecting offers above the $123.8 million reserve price or around $1,989 per sq ft (psf) on the land area, revealed exclusive marketing agent Knight Frank Singapore.

Located within the Queen Astrid Park Good Class Bungalow Area (GCBA), the 999-year leasehold condominium occupies a 5,782.6 sq m (62,243 sq ft) site and was previously put on the market for $126.8 million in September last year.

The development comprises 16 residential apartments measuring between 224 sq m and 239 sq m. Nestled on elevated grounds, it enjoys more than 100 metres frontage onto Queen Astrid Gardens.

Knight Frank noted that the potential buyer can retain its current use as apartments, redevelop it into a single mansion or subdivide it into up to four GCB parcels, subject to the relevant authorities’ approval.
