Interest in the Balmoral area has increased, especially following the recent en bloc sale of Sloane Court Hotel, notes Edwin Tham, an agent with ERA Realty, who is marketing units at Volari condominium across the road. Sloane Court Hotel was sold for $80.5 million in August to a joint venture between Tiong Seng Holdings and Ocean Sky International. The historic Tudor-style hotel will soon make way for a 12-storey condo with about 80 units.
A freehold, high-end condo, the 85-unit Volari by City Developments was completed in 2012 and is a redevelopment of the former Garden Hotel. Adjacent to Volari is the newly completed Goodwood Grand, a beneficiary of the recent en bloc sale of Sloane Court Hotel.
Goodwood Grand itself is a product of a redevelopment of an en bloc purchase of the former Balmoral Condominium in 2011. It was acquired for $141 million by a consortium comprising Tong Eng Group, the Ng family of Clarus Corp and Tiong Seng Holdings.
