URA began the tender for the Lentor site on April 15th. The tender ended on July 22nd.
The bid by GuocoLand, part of Malaysian tycoon Quek Leng Chan’s Hong Leong Group of Malaysia, was 4.5% more than the second-highest offer of S$1,152 psf ppr, from a joint venture comprising Hong Realty, Intrepid Investments and TID Residential. The 3 parties are part of the Hong Leong Group Singapore, helmed by Mr Quek’s Singaporean cousin Kwek Leng Beng.
