Riverfront Residences Estimated Cost

Rio Casa, a 286-unit development located at Hougang Avenue 7, has been sold collectively to Oxley-Lian Beng Venture Pte Ltd for $575 million.

The sale price, coupled with an additional estimated differential premium of $208 million payable to the State to top up the lease to a fresh 99 years, and to develop the site to a gross plot ratio (GPR) of 2.8, translates to a land price of approximately $706 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr), based on the maximum permissible Gross Floor Area (GFA) of approximately 1,109,447 sq ft. With the inclusion of a 10% bonus balcony and a proposed plot ratio of 3.08 (2.8 + 10% balcony), the land price works out to approximately $669 psf ppr, subject to the authorities’ approval.

Rio Casa currently comprises seven residential blocks of 286 apartment and maisonette units with a site area of 36,811.1 sqm (approximately 396,231 sq ft). Under the Master Plan 2014, the site is zoned “Residential” with a GPR of 2.8 and has more than 200 metres’ frontage of riverfront and greenery views. Rio Casa was originally built in the mid-1980s by the Housing and Urban Development Company (HUDC), a unit of the Housing Development Board, and was later privatised in 2014.

Riverfront Residences, given its positive site attributes – vast surrounding green spaces with a calming waterfront view of Sungei Serangoon river, proximity to Serangoon Park Connector, and easy accessibility to Hougang MRT station and bus interchange, with further transport connectivity in the pipeline following plans for the upcoming Integrated Transport Hub at Hougang Central to be completed by 2023. In addition, there is no new launch expected in the immediate vicinity, in the short to medium term.

“The gross development value for this project is estimated at $1.4 billion and can potentially be redeveloped to build about 1,400 residential units, assuming an average size of 70 sqm per unit.”
