Under the Master Plan 2019, the subject site is zoned for commercial use and has a gross plot ratio of 5.6.

Currently the two buildings in the Hoe Chiang Road and Lim Teck Kim Road plots are only 5-storey high and can be redeveloped to build a 35-storey tower, said Tracy Goh, head of investment and collective sales, PropNex.

“With the ongoing rejuvenation in the vicinity – including redevelopment projects such as Keppel South Central, Newport Tower, and the former Realty Centre – as well as the government’s plan to further enliven downtown Singapore, we believe this site presents a good opportunity to build a new hotel or serviced apartments to serve tourists and business travellers,” Goh added.

The site has a dual frontage to Hoe Chiang Road and Lim Teck Kim Road. It is also within walking distance to the Tanjong Pagar MRT station, as well as two upcoming stations, Cantonment and Prince Edward Road stations on the Circle Line which are slated to be ready in 2026.

The collective sale tender will close at 2PM on 22 March 2023.
