The Park Place Residences at Paya Lebar Quarter (PLQ), a 429-unit development which will be the third condo project to hit the market this year after The Clement Canopy in Clementi and Grandeur Park Residences in Tanah Merah, will open for a preview tomorrow.
The $3.2 billion PLQ – being jointly developed by Lendlease and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority – will feature a mall, three office towers and three residential blocks. Developer Lendlease yesterday said it is confident there will be a good take-up for the 99-year leasehold Paya Lebar project.
Lendlease plans to sell 171 apartments, or 40 per cent of the total units at Park Place Residences, as part of its first release. Park Place Residences will have 117 one-bedroom units, between 480 sq ft and 580 sq ft in size, with prices starting at $780,000. Meanwhile, the price for 234 two-bedroom apartments, between 650 sq ft and 900 sq ft, will start from $1 million. The remaining 78 three-bedroom units, between 1,080 sq ft and 1,350 sq ft, will be priced from $1.6 million.
The prices should work out to an average of about $1,560 psf to $1,610 psf. This would make Park Place Residences the priciest condo project out this year. Average prices at both The Clement Canopy and Grandeur Park Residences are below $1,400 psf. Park Place Residences will be launched for sale on March 25.

The massive upcoming mixed development in Paya Lebar Central will comprise seven buildings on a 3.9-hectare site. The S$3.2 billion project – Paya Lebar Quarter – will feature a retail mall, three office towers and three private residential blocks.
The developer Lendlease said the development will transform the Paya Lebar area into a “vibrant, pedestrian-friendly city precinct”. Over 200 stores and entertainment options across the seven-storey mall, with about 30 per cent of the tenants being food and beverage operators.
Paya Lebar Quarter has a total gross floor area of about 1.8 million sq ft. About 100,000 sq ft at the development have been set aside as public spaces, and will include cycling path and lush greenery.
The first two anchor tenants to sign up at Paya Lebar Quarter are supermart NTUC Fairprice Finest, which will occupy 22,000 sq ft of space, and foodcourt Kopitiam, which will take up 15,000 sq ft of space. The development will also have about one million sq ft of Grade A office space across three 13- to 14-storey blocks, which can house up to some 10,000 workers.
The office and retail components of the development are expected to be completed in the second half of 2018, while the residential component – the 429-unit Park Place Residences – will be completed only in the first half of 2019.
A tender for the plum site at Paya Lebar Central, between the MRT station, Tanjong Katong Complex and City Plaza, was won by a consortium including Lend Lease and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA).
