Choon Kim House – A mixed Commercial and Residential development relaunches collective sale tender at lower Reserve Price

Choon Kim House, a freehold collective sale site at Upper Serangoon Road, has just been relaunched for sale by tender by sole marketing agent, JLL.

January 04, 2019

The property was first launched for sale in April 2018 at the asking price of $55 million but the tender closed without a deal. The Collective Sales Committee (CSC) initiated a proposal to lower the reserve price to $50 million. This was duly approved and over 80 per cent of owners have consented to the lowering of the reserve price.

Completed in the early 2000s, the freehold 4-storey cum attic development consist of 20 commercial units and 10 residential units with 19 basement carpark lots. Under the 2014 Masterplan, the 14,988 sq ft site is zoned ‘Commercial and Residential’ with a gross plot ratio of 3.0. The site may potentially support a total GFA of 47,661 sq ft (inclusive of the 10% bonus gross floor area for the residential component, subject to approval).

Choon Kim House is easily accessible, being 700m away from Serangoon bus and MRT interchange, by both the Central Expressway (CTE) and Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE). Future residents of the development are also able to enjoy the convenience of a wide range of amenities at the nearby Nex megamall and Kovan Heartland mall as well popular dining enclaves located along Upper Serangoon Road. In addition, the site is surrounded by reputable primary and secondary schools. Paya Lebar Methodist Girls School is within a 1km radius while Maris Stella High School, St Gabriel’s Primary School, CHIJ Our Lady of Good Counsel and more are within a 2km radius.

Choon Kim House also offers an appealing opportunity for organizations/institutions and business owners who are looking to own and occupy their building for naming rights and brand awareness, or an investor/developer who wish to explore other forms of development like a boutique hotel or student hostel, subject to change of use and planning approval.

At the Reserve Price of $50 million, it reflects a land rate of $1,173 per sq ft per plot ratio (psf ppr) or $1,149 psf ppr after factoring in the 10 per cent bonus GFA for the residential component, subject to approval.

The tender for Choon Kim House closes on Wednesday, 30 January 2019, at 2.30pm.
