And Tampines Avenue 10 executive condominium site receives seven healthy bids from developers.

Bike-sharing firm Ofo is facing suspension if it fails to meet all regulatory requirements by 13 February 2019 which includes downsizing fleet to 10,000 and implementing the Land Transport Authority’s (LTA) QR-code parking system.

Bike-sharing companies are now required to ensure that shared bicycles are parked within designated areas by using a QR-code system, which kicked in on 14 January.

"We view these as serious breaches of critical requirements. Therefore Ofo must meet all regulatory requirements by 13 February 2019, failing which LTA intends to suspend Ofo’s licence," said LTA.

From PropertyGuru:

The tender for an executive condominium (EC) site at Tampines Avenue 10 drew in seven bids from developers, with Hoi Hup Realty and Sunway Developments submitting the highest bid at $434.45m.

“It is not often that you get an EC site in a mature estate,” Huttons Asia’s head of research Lee Sze Teck said. “Furthermore sales of new EC projects in Tampines have been well-received in the past. Plus there is a lot of latent demand in the market for EC units judging from the ground experience. That may explain why we see such robust bids put in by developers.”

Launched for sale in October, the 24,933.7 sqm EC site has a maximum gross floor area of 69,815 sqm and a gross plot ratio of 2.8. It comes with a 99-year lease and could yield 695 housing units.
