Before tendering the sites located at the Jiak Kim Street as well as the Fourth Avenue, they were listed as the reserve lands by the Government in the Land Sales department which had made them not for sale.

Christine Li, a director of research at a famous real estate firm Cushman and Wakefield, said, there was a rife contest for the prime sites at Jiak Kim Street and the Fourth Avenue, with both locations having a set benchmark price.

The successful bidders are looking forward to the appreciation of the land’s value to almost to ten percent which may see them yield big from their future developments.
