Big response on the first day of showflat viewing. The crowds streamed in non-stop throughout the day, queues formed for each show unit, and traffic slowed to a crawl. The following long weekend was slightly better, but still quite packed too.

15 Holland Hill by Peak Opal . Subsidiary of Kheng Leong Group . Freehold new development within walking distance to Dempsey Hill and Holland Village


Commonwealth Towers . Pricing

On March 30, 2014, in Commonwealth Towers, by Developer Sales

Commonwealth Towers pricing details are not available yet, but a look at the land tender cost may help with estimates of prices.

To recap, this land parcel at Commonwealth Avenue in the heart of the Queenstown HDB estate, is in an attractive location right next to Queenstown MRT Station.

This parcel, zoned for a residential condominium development, has a site area of over 130,000 sq ft, or a maximum GFA (gross floor area) of 637,500 sq ft.

The top bid, at S$562.8 million for this site, came from a consortium comprising subsidiaries of City Developments and Hong Leong Holdings: Verwood Holdings, Intrepid Investments and Hong Realty.

This works out to S$883 per sq ft per plot ratio.

The top bid beat earlier projections, and was 2.46 per cent higher than the second highest bid of S$549.2 million.

While seen as high at the time, consider that today, even Clavon at Clementi got its land at a price close to that despite being further out in the OCR (Outside Central Region) area. UOL won the URA tender for the Clavon condo site at around $788 PSF PPR, which was already considered something of a bargain due to lack of competition for the bidding. Furthermore, while Commonwealth Towers is just opposite Queenstown MRT station, the Clavon condo is something like 10 minutes walk from Clementi MRT station.

Indicative Commonwealth Towers Pricing Calculations

Property analysts estimate a breakeven cost of S$1,350 psf, which works out to an expected selling price of above S$1,600 psf.

Desmond Sim, associate director at CBRE Research said: “Prices fetched by the resale HDB flats in Queenstown are the most expensive in Singapore. A five-room HDB Strathmore unit is observed to be asking for up to S$100,000 cash-over-valuation, one of the highest transactions recorded.

Five-room and executive flats that are less than 10 years old fetched at around S$800,000 to S$1 million in some cases between the July-November 2012 period.”

One of Singapore’s top developers, Guocoland, will redeveloping the former Casa Meyfort site to house a new luxury development, the Meyer Mansion condo. It will a freehold project within easy walking distance from Katong Park MRT station, and even within walking distance of the upcoming Tanjong Katong MRT station as well.

The Meyer Mansion project is similar to Commonwealth Towers in that both are at city-fringe locations, and are high-rise projects. Pricing-wise however, Commonwealth Towers was priced at only around 60% of the expected pricing for Meyer Mansions.

Commonwealth Towers is fully sold and has completed construction. If you are looking for other new launches in the vicinity, there is Stirling Residences across the road. But that project is already over 84% sold, so the choices left are not great. It might be better to consider a newer launch such as Terra Hills or even Newport Residence, both of which have the advantage of being freehold. The Terra Hills condo is probably the closest new launch in this part of Singapore, as well as in terms of its walking distance to an MRT station, being around 5 minutes walk to Pasir Panjang MRT station, but on the Circle Line. However Terra Hills will be around 50% to 60% more expensive than Commonwealth Towers. Which is hardly surprising given both the rise in prices over the last few years, as well as the fact that it is on freehold land. The Terra Hills condo showflat location has not been announced yet, as the launch is likely to take place only towards the end of 2022. But if you want to arrange for a Terra Hills condo showflat viewing, just drop us a note. We will keep you posted as to when Terra Hills actually launches, as well as other details like the floor plan layouts and indicative pricing.


The Commonwealth Towers condo will be one of the hottest new residential developments around. It is being launched for sale by Hong Leong Holdings, City Developments & Hong Realty, in a prime location right next to Queenstown MRT station.

The latest projects to come out of the CDL / Hong Leong stable are Haus on Handy and Piccadilly Grand, now that Commonwealth Towers has fully sold out.

City Developments has a strong track record, honed from decades of experience, of spotting and clinching good sites with upside potential. In fact if anything, Piccadilly Grand and Haus on Handy occupy an even better site than Commonwealth Towers, in many ways.

This is a really plum site, in the Orchard Road upmarket shopping belt, directly opposite Doby Ghaut MRT station. It also sits in the heart of the cultural and educational zone around Bras Basah, helmed by the SMU (Singapore Management University), and underpinned by institutes like SOTA (School of the Arts), and Lasalle College of Fine Arts.

The Haus on Handy condo itself is really part of the Mount Sophia / Mount Emily residential estate, among the first residential estates in Singapore. Some of it are depicted in old picture postcards of Singapore, and it boasts a few old colonial bungalows that has since been conserved. There is even one on the Haus on Handy site, that has been gazetted for conservation. The developer CDL intends to turn this into a unique clubhouse, that will add to the character of the project.

The other unique feature of the Haus on Handy condo is that the site slopes fairly steeply, from Mount Sophia at the top north-east end, to Handy Road at the bottom south-west boundary. Access to the project will be from this side, barely 50 metres from an entrance to Doby Ghat MRT station and The Atrium at Orchard mall. Handy Road also leads to Plaza Singapura a couple of minutes walk away, and The Cathay, as well as to Orchard Road via Oldham Lane.

The Piccadilly Grand condo is expected to launch in April of 2022. Analysts are predicting prices in the region of $2,000 PSF, compared to the $1,600 to $1,700 PSF range for Commonwealth Towers. If they are right and Piccadilly Grand does launch in this price range, it would be a relatively good buy, given how much overall market prices have rise in the 5 years or so since then.
