The former Vista Park condo(now Kent Ridge Hill Residences condo) had a total of 209 residential units that include townhouses with a 99 year lease that starts from 1979. Sitting on a 319,250 sq ft site, owners initially had a reserve price of $323 million and an asking price of $350 million to be sold collectively. The eventual selling price was at $418 million or 19.4% higher than the asking price. This means that owners will get between $1.39 million and S$4.18 million per unit, which is more than double the market price if they were to sell them individually.
As Kent Ridge Hill Residences at South Buona Vista Road only has a balance of 66 years when developer Oxley Holdings took over, they will be paying for a lease top-up premium estimated at $72 million. Together with the premium, the Kent Ridge Hill Residences price of the land is around $490 million or $1,096 psf per plot ratio (ppr) for the 446,951 sq ft gross floor area (GFA) site, bearing a plot ratio of 1.4 and maximum allowable height of five-storeys.
The new Kent Ridge Hill Residences is nothing short of being impressive. With the generous land size, there will be beautiful landscapes that surrounds every corner of the compound to produce a tranquil ambiance away from the hustle and bustle of our metropolitan city. Kent Ridge Hill Residences condo will be featuring 498 luxurious apartment units and 50 strata landed houses.
Kent Ridge Hill Residences TOP date is stated to be towards the end of year 2024. However, it is noted that more often than not, buyers are able to collect keys about 6 to 12 months earlier after the Temporary Occupation Permit(TOP) has been obtained. While buyers are not immediately paying the full sum of installment, if any, investors are able to rent out the property at TOP stage to enjoy the most rental yield.
