A subsidiary of construction firm Chip Eng Seng Corp won the bid for the Government Land Sale (GLS) site at Kampong Java Road.

The GLS at Kampong Java Road was for a residential site with a land area of 125,326 square feet. The site is within 4 minutes walk to Newton MRT.

Among the seven bids for the GLS site, Chip Eng Seng submitted the highest bid at S$418.8 million ($1,192 psf ppr), followed by GuocoLand at S$417.24 million ($1,189.97 psf ppr).

As the site has a maximum gross floor area of 350,914 square feet, Chip Eng Seng can develop the site into a new condo up to 436 units.

The winning bid of $1,192 psf ppr for the Kampong Java Road site is considered low when compared with $1,733 psf ppr for the Jiak Kim Street GLS site purchased by Frasers Property, and $1,540 psf ppr paid for the Fourth Avenue GLS site by Allgreen Properties in December 2017.

In addition, the freehold project next to the Kampong Java Road GLS, Makeway View, was sold to Bukit Sembawang at the price of $168 million ($1,626 psf ppr) in an en bloc sale in March 2017.

Chip Eng Seng, which is currently also marketing Park Colonial, Parc Komo and Grandeur Park Residences, will develop the Kampong Java site into a condo named Kopar At Newton.

Chip Eng Seng will launch the Newton condo in March 2020.
