Park Colonial Condo – A major private residential development from a joint venture led by Chip Eng Seng Corp. Conveniently located at Woodleigh Lane (Upper Serangoon Road), it is one of the most talk about area in recent years due to the forthcoming Bidadari New Town as planned by the city state’s Urban Redevelopment Authority of Singapore (URA).
It was the only second plot of land offered via Government Land Sales within the new Bidadari precinct in 2017. The new condo site tender attracted an overwhelming fifteen property developers in submitting their interest for this huge plum land. It has a land area of 210,404 square foot and maximum permissible gross floor area (GFA) of 631,212 square foot in total.
Touted to be the new Bishan by several market watchers, it’s new and yet a mature residential town in Singapore’s Central Region, which falls under the planning area of Toa Payoh. Local real estate developers were determined in securing this highly sought-after site offered by the Government, resulting in a tight 3.6 percent margin difference among the top four bidders. With such a rare sight showing the intensely fought bidding behaviour during the open tender, it further escalates the hidden potential within the champion site at Woodleigh.
