Raintree Gardens has been sold collectively to UVD (Projects) Pte Ltd, a joint venture company of UOL Group and United Industrial Corporation, for $334.2 million.

Over 80% of the owners had consented to the en bloc sale. The site had been launched for a public tender on September 1 with a reserve price of $315 million.
