Oxley Holdings is maintaining the pace of its property launches with its eighth new development this year — Kent Ridge Hill Residences, located on South Buona Vista Road, off Pasir Panjang Road. On the weekend of Oct 20 and 21, the showflat of the 548-unit, 99-year leasehold luxury condominium will be opened for public preview.
The project will be jointly marketed by ERA Realty, OrangeTee & Tie, PropNex and Huttons Asia. Occupying a land area of about 3ha, Kent Ridge Hill Residences in District 5 is a redevelopment of the former Vista Park condo, which Oxley bought for $418 million last December in an enbloc purchase. The price translates into $1,096 psf per plot ratio, inclusive of the $72 million lease top-up premium for a fresh 99-year lease.
Ching Chiat Kwong, Oxley Holdings’ executive chairman and CEO, says: “Vista Park is really different [from the empty parcels of Government Land Sales sites], and it’s the site that we love best. This project is one last masterpiece that Oxley’s putting on the market this year.”

Wide selection of units

Apart from 11 five-storey blocks containing 498 units, Kent Ridge Hill Residences also boasts 50 strata terraced houses. As part of the Phase 1 launch, a mix of 200 units will be released for sale, at an average price of $1,700 psf.
