News Release


Chateau Eliza Sold at $92.2 million in Third En Bloc Tender Attempt

​SINGAPORE, 7 September 2012

Chateau Eliza, a 37-unit freehold residential development at Mount Elizabeth was successfully sold to Newfort Realty Pte Ltd, a consortium of private investors, in a deal which was inked this afternoon.

The collective sale owners were represented by marketing agent Knight Frank, with the buyers introduced by Jones Lang LaSalle, Singapore. 

This is the development’s third tender exercise within the past year. It was first put up for sale in December 2011, with a second try in May 2012 after attempting to lower their original reserve price. The vendors had launched their third tender exercise which closed last month.

This marks the 20th successful collective sale deal concluded this year in Singapore.

“Chateau Eliza has a land area of some 17,997 sq ft and has an existing Gross Floor Area (GFA) in the region of 52,887 sq ft,” says Ms Yong Choon Fah, National Director of Investments at Jones Lang LaSalle.

“The sale price of $92.2 million hence reflects a land rate of $1,743 psf per plot ratio (psf ppr) based on its existing Gross Plot Ratio of 2.939. If the developer were to build an additional 10% GFA for balconies, the sale price would hence translate to a land rate of $1,654 psf ppr,” adds Ms Yong.
