Chancery Garden and Kimis Lodge up for collective sale

Chancery Garden, a prime freehold mixed landed development at District 11 has been put up for collective sale by tender.

Located near Orchard Road, Chancery Garden offers a site area of 29,468 sq ft and could house six strata semi-detached plus 10 strata terraces, 18 strata terraces or any other configuration subject to approval.

The property’s owners expect a minimum price of S$45 million and it is likely to attract interest from medium-sized developers and high-net-worth individuals.

The tender for the site will close on 23 August.

It is zoned for a “three-storey mixed landed” development under the 2008 Master Plan.

“Based on URA’s (Urban Redevelopment Authority) prevailing guidelines for strata landed developments, the purchaser of Kismis Lodge could possibly build as many as 43 strata terrace houses, or 32 strata semi-detached houses, or alternatively, choose to build a combination of up to 22 conventional and 20 strata terraces, subject to approval,” said Yong Choon Fah, Executive Director of Credo Real Estate.

The site tender will close on 15 August.
