In its report, SLA and URA mention the redevelopment of the area for residence usage will “support future real estate need and enhance the residential style of the district”.
Eugene Lim, primary managing officer at ERA Singapore, feels that the place may be offered a bigger plot ratio given its area at the section of Whitley Road and Dunearn Road. “There is a possibility of a higher plot ratio being permitted on the place, like 1.6 or 2.1, similar that a taller property development may be constructed there to function as a site for the junction.”
The site is located barely a five-minute drive from the Singapore Botanic Gardens. It is additionally near to schools consisting of Singapore Chinese Girls’ School, Nanyang Primary School and St Joseph’s Institution.

To that extent, it could potentially be become a deluxe venture with 160 to 190 units with an average unit dimension ranging from 915 to 1,076 sq ft. If the site started for tender today, it can lure a winning quote of over $1,500 psf per plot ratio, he assesses.
