The 4,585 sq ft unit changed hands on Aug 3 for $5.1 million (or $1,112 psf), based on caveats lodged.

Completed in 1979 with a total of 605 units, the 14-storey freehold condominium was developed by the former DBS Realty (now CapitaLand). The development is located off Ulu Pandan Road in District 21. Pandan Valley is located near Pine Grove (Parcel A), a 242,564 sq ft, 99-year leasehold government land sale (GLS) site that was sold to a joint venture between UOL Group and Singapore Land Group for $671.5 million ($1,318 psf per plot ratio) in June. The developers are expected to develop a new condominium of about 520 units on the site.
The second most profitable deal of the week occurred at Mandarin Gardens. Completed in 1986, the 99-year leasehold condominium is located off Siglap Road in the Marine Parade area in District 15.

With over 1,000 units in total and the sheer land size of over one million sq ft, the development has undergone three en bloc attempts, with the most recent attempt being in 2021. Siglap MRT Station on the Thomson-East Coast Line, slated for completion in 2024, will be a five- to 10-minute walk away. Next door is the 843-unit, 99-year leasehold Seaside Residences by Frasers Property that is fully sold and completed in 2021. (See potential condos with en bloc calculator)
