Raintree Gardens launched for sale for at least $315m

A 175-unit river-fronting residential development in Potong Pasir was launched for sale on Wednesday (31 August), revealed sole marketing agent JLL.

Built in the late 1980s, Raintree Gardens is a former HUDC estate that was privatised in 2014. It sits on 201,405 sq ft of land and comprises one seven-storey and two 12-storey mansionette blocks.

More than 80 percent of the development’s owners have consented to the collective sale, and are looking at offers in excess of the minimum price of $315 million. This translates to a land rate of approximately $759 psf per plot ratio on the potential gross floor area.

At this rate, the estimated breakeven cost for the successful purchaser should be around $1,250 psf, with the new units expected to fetch around $1,450 psf.

S’pore luxury home prices up 7.9% in Q2
