Tenders for three state-owned plots in Lentor and Bukit Batok that closed on Tuesday attracted fewer bids than expected, although top bid prices generally held up.
Analysts cited steeper interest rates, rising construction costs, heightened macroeconomic uncertainties, and a build-up of new home supply in the Lentor area as well as a number of upcoming executive condominium (EC) projects near the Bukit Batok area.
Despite the need to replenish their landbanks, some developers may be concerned that the Lentor Modern and Lentor Hills Road (Parcel A) sites, which were sold in earlier tenders in July 2021 and January 2022 respectively, have first-mover advantage.
The Government today announced the Government Land Sales (GLS) Programme for the second half of 2022 (2H2022), which comprises six Confirmed List sites and eight Reserve List sites. These sites can yield about 7,310 private residential units, 94,750 sqm gross floor area (GFA) of commercial space and 530 hotel rooms.
The list includes the land plot at Lentor Central, placed on the Reserve List, and will be made available for Developer Application in Oct 2022.
The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has released three residential sites at Lentor Central, Lentor Gardens and Lentor Hills Road (Parcel B) for sale today under the first half 2022 (1H2022) Government Land Sales (GLS) Programme.
The residential sites at Lentor Central and Lentor Hills Road (Parcel B) are launched for sale by public tender under the Confirmed List while the residential site at Lentor Gardens is available for application under the Reserve List.

Lentor Hills Estate is envisioned as a pedestrian-friendly neighbourhood set amidst lush greenery with good connectivity to public transport. It is intended to provide a mix of high-rise, medium-rise and landed housing options, as well as new amenities, such as retail options and a supermarket. Existing greenery on the site has been retained and will be developed into a hillock park to serve the neighbourhood.
The proposed development on the Land Parcel is envisioned to be well integrated with the greenery of the future Hillock Park and the green fingers extending from the park. It shall be lushly landscaped to enhance the overall sense of greenery in the area and include an attractive living environment that promotes an active lifestyle.
The Successful Tenderer is expected to build upon the unique context of the Land Parcel and employ innovative building typologies of appropriate form and scale in the proposed development that responds sensitively to existing developments (e.g. landed homes), the future Hillock Park, Lentor MRT Station, and the future Lentor Modern.
|Site Area||13,444.3 m2|
