Ho Bee’s robust sales prompt more launches

 

SOME developers are riding on the pick-up in home-buying mood created by Ho Bee’s Dakota Residences preview last week to launch their own projects.

 

Mainboard-listed Sim Lian Group, for one, has sold about 100 units of its Clover By The Park condo at Bishan St 22 since it began previewing the development on Wednesday at an average price of $750 psf.

 

Next to Kovan MRT Station, an outfit controlled by UOB-Kay Hian star stockbroker pair Han Seng Juan and David Loh Kim Kang is getting ready to release its 512-unit condo, according to industry sources.

 

BT understands that Centurion Kovan, which is developing the project, plans to preview the condo soon to ‘remisier friends’ of Messrs Han and Loh. There are also plans to preview the condo overseas, including China. The average price is expected to be in the $850-900 psf range.

 

The duo bought the 189,812 sq ft site at a state tender in October last year for around $436 psf per plot ratio.

 

Over in Bishan, Sim Lian is developing two 39-storey blocks with a total of 616 units for the Clover By The Park condo. The first phase released earlier this week comprises one tower with 308 units. It is near good schools like Catholic High (within 1 km), Ai Tong Primary School and Raffles Institution. ‘Clover By The Park features three-bedroom and four-bedroom units to luxurious penthouses and suites of six bedrooms,’ Sim Lian said in a release yesterday.

 

Ho Bee has sold 95 units at Dakota Residences since last Friday. The average price is $976 psf. All three projects are 99-year leasehold.
