UOL launching new project in St Patrick’s Road

70 St Pat concept 70 ST Pat concept2 70 ST Pat concept3DESPITE the gloom in the residential property market, developer UOL Group is confident of moving units at its latest East Coast development, 70 St Patrick’s.

Mr Liam Wee Sin, president (property), told The Straits Times yesterday that there is still “underlying demand if you have a good product”.

“The market has become more subdued and buyers are very selective… But if a development has the scarcity factor – in that it has attributes not easily found in most residential projects – as well as a strong product proposition, it will be sought after.”

Mr Liam said 70 St Patrick’s location in District 15, next to the upcoming Marine Terrace MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line, will be a draw.

“The residential blocks are all arranged… such that each faces a different aspect of the surrounding amenities, and this gives buyers more options,” he added.

The 186 units at the low-rise freehold project go on sale today at an average price of $1,600 to $1,700 per sq ft (psf). Prices start at $1.2 million for a 700 sq ft two-bedder and go up to $2.5 million for a 1,647 sq ft penthouse.

Industry sources said a number of buyers have already expressed interest in the development.

The project is next to the 102-unit St Patrick’s Residences, which launched last year. Units at the freehold project were sold at an average price of $1,226 psf over the past six months, according to Squarefoot Research.

UOL is also keeping busy with OneKM, the retail mall below Katong Regency, which is expected to have its soft launch next month, said Mr Liam.

The mall has 158 retail units spanning a net lettable area of 203,601 sq ft. Its anchor tenants include Cold Storage.

Mr Liam said the company is working towards growing its recurring income via a diversified portfolio in the light of the softening residential market.

In August, UOL embarked on its first overseas venture by acquiring a site in Bishopsgate, in the City of London, via a £97 million (S$200 million) purchase. It expects to operate a hotel on the mixed-use site under its Pan Pacific hotel flagship brand.

Pointing out the site’s location in London’s financial district, Mr Liam said its proximity to the Liverpool Street Station and the future Crossrail, which will link the whole of Greater London, will be a “game-changer”.

“In all our ventures, we always apply the same investment principle. There must be a scarcity factor and high connectivity and that would help translate into positive demand,” he said.

Enbloc potential along TEL may ring louder

With the announcement of the Thomson-East Coast Line (TEL), there were talk about the possible rise in collective sales in the District 15 area, especially those near the designated stations.

Older developments that are 20 years or older and having less than 200 units each, in areas such as Amber Road, Katong, Marine Parade and Siglap will be especially in developers’ radars, given the smaller purchase quantum and corresponding lower risks. Some of the potential developments, which are freehold, include Amber Point, Parkway Apartments, Katong Park and Equatorial Apartments. All are more than 20 years old and given their smaller plot areas, may be palatable enough to raise developers’ interests.

Meanwhile some developments along the TEL have already made several attempts to en bloc like the following:

– Laguna Park, a 99-year leasehold development with 63 years left on its lease. The last en bloc attempt was in October 2011, where the asking price was $1.25 billion, equivalent to $954psf ppr.

– Hawaii Tower, a freehold development that last attempted to en bloc in 2011 as well with an asking price of $700 million.

So with the announcement of the TEL these two developments may now stand a better chance of finding buyer

These leasehold/freehold developments may also have potential for enbloc by the time the TEL begin construction: King’s Mansions, Costa Rhu, Pebble Bay, Mandarin Gardens, Park Shore and Casuarina Cove
