The Land Parcel is zoned for Residential use. The maximum permissible Gross Floor Area (GFA) for the development is 54,789 m 2 and the total GFA to be built is not to be less than 49,311 m2 .
The Land Parcel is to be developed for Residential use as condominium or flats, or with written approval of the Competent Authority, a combination of flats and strata landed houses.
The development is subject to a building height control of 70m - 75m SHD.
All construction equipment and temporary structures, such as cranes, piling rigs, etc., as well as permanent structures, such as water tanks, mechanical and electrical (M&E) equipment, lift motor rooms, TV antennae, etc., are subject to the maximum allowable height control of 70m – 75m SHD, and are to comply with the requirements of the relevant Competent Authorities.
