My review of Park View Mansions focuses on the building itself, which is being converted into a mid-sized new development with approximately 440 units. This development is located adjacent to Jurong Lake Gardens, in Jurong East. This area is on the brink of becoming Singapore’s next CBD and is a major integrated tourism hub. Despite being a relatively new development, Park View Mansions offers good value for money.

It is a mid-sized new development
Three Singapore developers have stepped up their land banking activities through the collective sale market, acquiring Park View Mansions on Yuan Ching Road for $260 million. This development is slated to comprise 440 units and is adjacent to Jurong Lake Gardens. The area is prime for redevelopment, with the Jurong Lake District poised to become the new CBD and integrated tourism district of Singapore.
The developers have a good working relationship, and they have considered all aspects of the property landscape when designing and building the development, including macroeconomic and geopolitical tensions. These factors can cause construction delays, and they can increase costs.
The development’s land price includes 7% of additional gross floor space for balconies. This means a development fee of approximately S$6.4 million. The redevelopment site is approximately 21-hundred and seventy-four thousand square feet. It is zoned residential and is subject to urban redevelopment authority approval. The development is subject to urban redevelopment authority restrictions such as a maximum height restriction of 36 storeys and a maximum gross plot ratio of 2.8.
The development is slated to be completed in 2023. The land area is around 7,688 square feet, and the gross floor area is approximately 30327 square feet. According to Edmund Tie, the marketing agent, the winning bidder Lumina Grand EC will have the option to convert the development into a hotel or serviced apartments, or even a post-natal care centre.
It offers good value for money

The development is set on a 191,974 sq ft piece of land, and the developers have said they expect to net $320 million from the collective sale. This amount will be further enhanced by the $157 million investment that the developers will make to intensify the land. The developers will also be top-up the 99-year lease.
