En Bloc hopeful Lakepoint Condominium will be relaunched for collective sale again on Apr 19, exclusive marketing agency PropNex Realty said on Monday (Apr 18).
The reserve price for the latest tender remains unchanged at S$640 million. This translates to a land rate of S$959 to S$982 per square foot per plot ratio, including the development charge and a lease top-up premium from JTC.
The 99-year leasehold development comprises 309 residential units. It sits on a land plot spanning 562,286 square feet zoned for residential use under the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) Master Plan 2019 and also has a plot ratio of 1.4.
The property is located around 300 metres to Lakeside MRT Station and is within walking distance to Jurong Lake Gardens. Amenities nearby include shopping malls such as JCube, Jem, Westgate, IMM and Jurong Point Mall.
Schools within the 1-kilometre radius include River Valley High School, Rulang Primary School, Shuqun Primary School and the Canadian International School.
The owners of Lakepoint Condominium recently obtained URA approval for higher height redevelopment. Thus, the buyer of the site will be able to build a mix of residential blocks 5 storeys and 12 storeys high, which “greatly enhances the attractiveness of the site”, PropNex noted.
The Land Transport Authority has also confirmed that a traffic impact study is not necessary for this site.
PropNex head of investment and collective sales Tracy Goh said: “We believe that as the dramatic transformation of Jurong Lake District (JLD) continues to take shape, more companies and investors could relocate to the area, generating more job opportunities and injecting more vibrancy to the neighbourhood.”
She noted that the upcoming tourism destination in JLD could also be a game changer in Jurong, bringing in more visitors and businesses and thus sparking demand for homes in Jurong.
“The Lakepoint Condominium collective sale site is well-positioned to enjoy the potential upside in capital appreciation and rental yields from the transformation efforts in the area,” Goh added.
