Land price analysis
The top 4 of these bids for the site were worth more than $800 per square foot per plot ratio and they all fell inside a 7% margin. This suggests that there will be a significant demand for the units at the area, once developed. It is possible that the strong interest has been due to the dearth of residential development sites. The proximity of the location to areas like East Coast Park was surely a factor. Moreover, the sea views are clear and free from interference which is another added bonus. The bids also showcase the desire of the property developers in Singapore to increase their land bank.
When the tender for the site was released, analysts predicted that there will be more than 7 bids for the property.

Analysts believe that the selling price for the project developed at the site will have to be a minimum value of $1,400 to $1,500 per square foot. This is due to the bid made by the consortium.
