This is the second land plot in the same area, announced on 7 June 2022 as part of the 2H 2022 GLS programme, beside the Canadian International School.
This new plot can yield 825 units and will be open for Developer Tender in March 2023.
These form part of the increased supply of housing under the Government Land Sales Programme for 1H2023 to cater to demand
The two Confirmed List sites will yield a total of 1,540 residential units, with more launching in the coming months
The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and the Housing & Development Board (HDB) released two sites at Jalan Tembusu and Tampines Street 62 (Parcel B) for sale today under the first half 2023 (1H2023) Government Land Sales (GLS) Programme.
The URA site at Jalan Tembusu and HDB Executive Condominium site at Tampines Street 62 (Parcel B) are launched for sale under the Confirmed List. Together, these two sites can yield about 1,540 residential units. These form part of the 4,090 residential units1 to be made available via the Confirmed List of the 1H2023 GLS programme, which represents a 17% increase from the 3,505 units made available in 2H2022.
To encourage the adoption of innovative construction technologies and productive construction methods, the modified concept and price revenue tender approach2 will be used for the tender of the Executive Condominium site at Tampines Street 62 (Parcel B).
1 The total supply of 4,090 residential units will bring the total pipeline supply of private housing (including ECs) to about 61,000 units, comprising 51,700 units with planning approval and 9,300 units from GLS sites and awarded en-bloc sites that have not been granted planning approval yet.
2 Tenderers have the option to submit an alternative bid on top of a base Prefabricated Prefinished Volumetric Construction (PPVC) bid. The alternative bid may be of a non-PPVC technology or a hybrid of technologies which could yield the specified productivity improvement. PPVC bids will automatically qualify for the tender evaluation, while any alternative bid will need to be accompanied by a write-up to demonstrate the feasibility of proposal.
THE Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and Housing and Development Board (HDB) on Tuesday (Mar 14) released two residential land plots for sale. Both sites fall under the confirmed list in the first half 2023 government land sales programme.
