Keppel Land unit Harvestland Development has won the tender for a private residential site in Kim Tian Road with a top bid of S$550.3 million, Urban Redevelopment Authority data showed on Tuesday.
Harvestland’s bid translates to S$1,162.86 per sq ft per plot ratio, the highest ever for a pure residential site, beating the previous record of S$1,107 psf ppr for a site at Farrer Road, said Mr Lee Sze Teck, Senior Manager for Training, Research and Consultancy at DWG, before the tender was awarded.
