A joint venture between SGX-listed Tuan Sing Holdings and Rich Capital Holdings successfully acquired Peak Court for $118.88 million at the close of the collective sale tender on May 11.
Located at 333 Thomson Road in prime District 11, Peak Court is a 35-year-old development with just 20 units in a four-storey block sittings on a freehold site of 57,378 sq ft. Zoned for residential use, it has a plot ratio of 1.4 under the URA Master Plan 2014 and gross floor area of 80,329 sq ft. The purchase price of $118.88 million reflects a land rate of $1,558 psf per plot ratio (ppr).

“The acquisition is in line with Tuan Sing’s focus on offering quality homes in central locations and is a good addition to our land bank,” according to William Liem, CEO of Tuan Sing Holdings. “The site’s strategic location and proximity to lifestyle and premium medical facilities such as Thomson Medical Centre, the future Health City Novena, Novena Square, United Square and the excellent transport connectivity, opens up various exciting redevelopment opportunities.”
