Lendlease and ADIA, Successful bidders for Park Place Residences


The URA (Urban Redevelopment Authority) granted permission for the developers last December 2015 to build a project, is now called Park Place Residences, that will comprise a 429 apartment units with a 43,740 sq m and 470,813 sq ft of retail space and a 91,340 sq m and 983,175 sq ft fross floor area of office space.

A spokesman for Lendlease once said that the apartments will occupy three towers and that they are confident that this project will revive the area after it’s completed.

Lendlease has a 30% stake in developing this project, while ADIA has 70%.

The developers, Lendlease-ADIA alliance, were the highest bidder for the 99-year leasehold site at state that was officially closed last March 31, 2015. Its winning bid of S$1.67 billion worked out to an almost S$950 per sq ft of gross floor area.

The site holds for about four plots of 2 land parcels, an underground, and airspace. It can be developed to a maximum gross floor area of 164,794 sq m and about 1.77 million sq ft. This upcoming development will have a direct connection to both Circle Line and Paya Lebar East-West Line MRT stations.

Lendlease is known as an integrated infrastructure group that has operated in Singapore since 1973. It can span an entire development, investment, management, construction and project management, asset, and property management.

The URA also gave provisional permissions to other developers in Hongkong and Malaysia.

Paya Lebar Quarter is the future in Paya Lebar Road


New construction has arrived and it is fronting the Paya Lebar MRT interchange station, a great unique location in one of the future hub in the Payar Lebar Road in District 14.

The Paya Lebar Quarter, developed by Australian property group Lendlease and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority is a mixed development worth $3.2 billion. Lendlease is confident with the project as it features a great unique location as not many launches are featured within the area. With its accessibility through public transportation as well as it is located at the central, soon it will be the future hub in the country.

The development features a wellness theme with its 100k sq ft of lush greeneries and it also features 20k sq ft of covered event space outside the mall. There will also be a 6 meters wide cycling trail and pedestrian pathway as well as facilities for storing bicycles and scooters, aiming for a BCA Green Mark Platinum Award.

Soon this will be transformed in the commercial hub and more new launches are coming in with some like the Orchard condo for sale and the likes of Park Place Residences, a leasehold condominium with 429 residential units and soon to be known commercial spaces. The government is doing a good job on their decentralization plans and we’ll update you on more latest news about Paya Lebar Quarter.
