A parcel A next to it, valued at $422,000,000, or $659/sqft ppr in August 2021. The land rate was a new record for an EC Site.
Tenet EC was launched at the site by developers, who sold 72% of their units at its launch in December 2020.
The project may also attract buyers from the over 2,000 HDB units that will be reaching their five-year minimum occupancy period in 2024-2025.
The Tampines EC future project is expected to cost between $1,430 psf and $1,500 psf.
It is not logical to price a 99 year leasehold condominium below an EC.
Huttons Asia Senior Director of Data Analytics Lee Sze Teck says the EC is attracting a greater interest from developers. Seven are vying for Tampines.
He pointed out that the previous EC launch saw strong sales – both the 639 unit Copen Grand, in Tengah Garden Walk in Tampines Street 62 and the Tenet, with 618 units, are sold out. Altura Bukit Batok, with 360 units, has been sold to almost 90%.
