W Hotel slated to open in Sentosa Cove in 2011

IT IS confirmed: the trendy W Hotel chain will open its first Singapore premises in Sentosa Cove in 2011.

The 250-room hotel will be part of the Quayside Isle Collection, a mixed lifestyle development being built by City Developments (CDL) that will include homes, shops and restaurants.

Time is ripe for Quayside Isle launch

Recent months have seen a return of buying interests to Sentosa Cove. Last week, SC Global announced that its residential project, Seven Palms Sentosa Cove sold 6 out of the 10 released units at an average selling price of S$3,300 psf. In the sub-sale and resale markets, prices of other condominium projects on Sentosa have also recovered firmly in 2H09. We think that the time is ripe for City Developments (CDL) to launch its Quayside Isle Collection project soon. While we previously assumed a bear-case scenario pricing of S$1,400 psf for the project, we are now raising our selling price estimate to S$1,900 psf. As such, our projected profit contribution from the residential component of the Quayside Isle Collection project has now been raised from S$209.7m to S$386.2m. Our fair value of CDL has now been raised to S$9.83. We maintain our HOLD rating on CDL.
