Joint Press Release by URA & HDB - Government to release three sites with about 1,500 housing units in December 2014

05 Dec 2014

 To provide home buyers with more choices for private housing, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) and Housing & Development Board (HDB), as the Government’s land sales agents, will be releasing three sites that can yield about 1,500 units for sale in December 2014 under the 2nd half 2014 (2H2014) Government Land Sales (GLS) Programme.

 URA released a residential site at Jurong West Street 41 (Parcel B) for sale today, while HDB will launch an Executive Condominium site at Woodlands Avenue 12 for sale on 16 December 2014. Both sites are under the Confirmed List. URA also made available a commercial & residential site at Holland Road for sale on the Reserve List1 today. Please refer to Annex 1 (PDF 11KB) for details on the land parcels and Annex 2 (PDF 448KB) for the location plans.

Commercial & Residential site at Holland Road
- First sale site under Holland Village Extension plans

 Holland Village is one of Singapore’s most distinctive lifestyle destinations. Set amidst winding narrow lanes and low-rise shophouses, it has an urban village feel distinguished by its laid-back daytime allure contrasted with a vibrant dining scene at night. Residents and visitors mingle amidst the wide-ranging and eclectic mix of shops and restaurants in the area that contribute to Holland Village’s unique identity. Public transport access to the area has also improved with the opening of the Holland Village MRT station on the Circle Line.

 Plans for the Holland Village Extension were first announced during the Master Plan 2014. URA is now offering a land parcel at Holland Road for sale to extend this Identity Node with a new, mixed-use, pedestrian-oriented development that would add to the vibrancy of Holland Village as a great place to live, work and play. This mixed-use development will offer more retail and dining options to enhance the area’s buzz and provide more residences for people who wish to live in the heart of Holland Village.

 The quality of the public realm is also central to the new extension of Holland Village. A network of pedestrianised streets and public spaces will connect seamlessly with the surrounding lorongs and the housing estate beyond. The new development will build on and reinforce the continued success of Holland Village while creating new community spaces for people to gather and interact.

Concept and Price Revenue tender system

 As the design of the new development is critical to ensuring good integration with the existing context and setting Holland Village apart as a distinctive and endearing Identity Node, a Concept and Price Revenue tender system will be adopted to evaluate the tenders received for the commercial & residential site at Holland Road.

 Under this system, tenderers are required to submit their concept proposals and tender prices in two separate envelopes. The concept proposals will be first evaluated against a set of criteria specified in the tender. Only tenders that meet the criteria will be considered for award. Refer to Annex 3 (PDF 163KB) for the evaluation criteria.

 At the second stage, the price envelopes of the proposals with acceptable concepts will be opened for consideration. The site will then be awarded to the tenderer with the highest bid price among those with acceptable concept proposals.
