The string of en bloc sales in the traditional prime districts 9, 10 and 11 since the start of the year has driven land prices to record levels of up to $2,910 psf per plot ratio (ppr). That means selling prices of new launches are likely to touch $4,000 psf.
At Tanjong Pagar Centre in District 2, units at Wallich Residence have been snapped up at progressively higher prices. Wallich Residence contains just 181 luxury residences and spans the 39th to 64th floors of Tanjong Pagar Centre. The residences sit on top of the 38-storey Guoco Tower, which contains Grade-A office space. Tanjong Pagar Centre is an integrated development by GuocoLand and includes retail space as well as the luxury Sofitel Singapore hotel. The entire development is linked underground to the Tanjong Pagar MRT station.
The latest transaction at Wallich Residence was the sale of a 3,509 sq ft, four-bedroom unit on the 58th floor that fetched $16 million ($4,560 psf), according to a caveat lodged with URA Realis on June 4.
