Shunfu Ville Qingjian

The 358-unit Shunfu Ville, built in the late 1980s by the former Housing and Urban Development Company (HUDC) and privatised in 2013, sits on a 408,927 square foot site with about 70 years left on its lease and a plot ratio of 2.8. The residential plot was sold to Qingjian Realty for $638 million, the largest collective sale since 2007. There has not been any government sites in the Bishan-Thomson area up for sale since October 2014. The site could potentially yield over 1,000 units with an average size of 1,000 sq ft.

Shunfu Ville is conveniently located near to Marymount MRT Station, serving the Circle Line. In terms of MRT connectivity, Shunfu Ville is just one stop away from Bishan Station and the conveniences of Junction 8 mall. The new project can rise up to 36 storeys. This will give the future condo project on the site nice views of MacRitchie Reservoir and the surrounding greenery. For golf lovers, another attraction is that the site is a short drive from the Singapore Island Country Club; the club’s Sime Course will become a public golf course after 2021. While that site is in a more central location, Shunfu Ville can be seen as part of the more upmarket Thomson location.

The new condominium is expected to launch in 2H 2017. For latest update on Shunfu Ville Qingjian, simply fill up your details below and our salesperson will get in touch with you shortly!

Yio Chu Kang EC By Hoi Hup

YCK EC situated at Yio Chu Kang Road is a new launch Executive Condominium (EC) By Hoi Hup Realty. The plot which attracted 10 bids during the tender exercise received a top bid of $183.8 million which works out to about S$331 per square foot of potential gross floor area, or per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr). The 1.8-hectare site is expected to yield 520 residential units ranging from 2 bedroom units to 5 bedroom units.

Strong demand is expected for YCK EC due to the scarcity of EC plots released by the government in recent years. YCK EC will be one of the only 2 ECs expected to be launched in 2017. There is also no private residential and EC launches in recent years, with Terrasse Condo by MCL being dated last. The development is definitely going to generate strong interest from HDB upgraders and 1st timers looking for residential with condominium facilities and convenience yet affordable. ECs are generally 20-25% more affordable than private condominiums. ECs are a public-private housing hybrid form with initial buyer eligibility and resale restrictions that are lifted a decade after project completion.

The project is expected to launch in late Q2 2017.
