News related to the development. Also, I think the thread should be renamed SINGAPORE |The Scotts Tower | 153m | 36 fl | Demo.

Quote:
Daewoo E&C back in S'pore after three-year hiatus
By Lynda Hong | Posted: 31 October 2012 2007 hrs


SINGAPORE: As unrest in Northern Africa and the Middle East continues to disrupt business, one foreign construction company has returned to Singapore after a three-year hiatus -- over the period of the Arab Spring.

The company, Daewoo Engineering & Construction (Daewoo E&C), has entered into a collaboration with property giant Far East Organisation to build a luxury development at a time when economists note slower construction demand this year.

The development, The Scotts Tower, is being built by Daewoo E&C at a cost of S$112.8 million.

The SOHO development is the first project since the South Korean builder exited Singapore in 2009 to focus on the Middle East and Africa.

Kang Woo-Shin, executive vice president of overseas business development at Daewoo E&C, said: "We have decided to come back to this market because of the Jasmine revolution in the Middle East that has affected us a lot. That is why we need to relocate our market."

Daewoo E&C is also eyeing infrastructure projects such as the fourth LNG tank to be built on Jurong Island.

Singapore's neighbours -- Malaysia and Indonesia -- also hold great potential for Daewoo.

Analysts note that Singapore construction demand in 2012 is 20 per cent slower than last year. Contributing four percent to Singapore's GDP, the construction industry would need to see demand dip 40 per cent in a year before shaving 1.6 percentage off GDP growth.

Leong Wai Ho, a regional economist with Barclays, said: "The 20 per cent drop in demand may not translate to a 20 per cent drop off in certified payments next year. But what it means is that the stream of certified payments would actually start to narrow from next year onwards, one year down the line, and it progressively narrows for the next three years.

"The 20 per cent drop off in demand will spread itself out over the life of the building project, which is about three years."

For Daewoo, more projects could come from Far East Organisation, which has seen construction costs surge after a tighter cap on resources like foreign manpower.

Chng Kiong Huat, executive director of development & planning at Far East Organisation, said: "The time when construction cost will slow down is when the supply of developments or demand for resources or contractors ease up. If you ask me when, the appropriate answer is when government land supply slows down."

With a lot of foreign money in the market seeking refuge in Singapore properties, the government is expected to put up more land for sale under the Government Land Sales project to meet demand.

About half of the 231-units were put up for sale and so far, 65 per cent (85 units) have been sold. and its developer said such a sales figure is healthy for a development costing S$3,300 per square foot.

I do agree, the initial project was weird but very impressive. It was better imo.
