Investors invited to develop airport hotel at Terminal 3

SINGAPORE : The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore or CAAS is inviting investors to lease a site at the upcoming Terminal 3 for the development of an airport hotel.

The 60-year lease site can accommodate a hotel of up to 400 guest rooms.

CAAS has appointed DTZ Debenham Tie Leung and HVS International as consultants to source for suitable investors.

Terminal 3 is expected to be operational in early 2008.

It is designed to handle up to 20 million passengers a year while Terminals 1 and 2 have a combined handling capacity of 44 million passengers annually.

The proposed airport hotel will offer travellers arriving at Changi Airport with immediate access to hotel accommodation after clearing customs.

Air travellers with short layovers, as well as travellers engaging in business activities in the eastern part of Singapore are expected to benefit from the hotel development.

Interested parties are invited to submit their applications by 18 August 2005.

Airport hotel plan attracts interest

By Krist Boo

IT COULD be second time lucky for Singapore's proposed airport hotel, which drew three suitors even before the invitation went out.

The project, which failed to draw a single bid in 2001, could attract at least five contenders in its latest call for investors, which started yesterday.

The forecast came from one of its two newly appointed consultants, HVS International, which has been given the task of finding investors for the planned 400-room venture.

HVS managing director David Ling told The Straits Times the three early birds are a local developer, a Japanese developer and an Asia-based investment fund operator. They have called for the site details.

This level of interest is in marked contrast to 2001. Then, a spluttering economy raised the question of whether an airport hotel could compete with its downtown counterparts just a 20-minute drive away.

Prospects are much brighter now. Mr Ling said: 'Singapore is very different now, with the integrated resorts coming through, Terminal 3 coming up and the budget terminal being built.'

Tourism numbers, hotel occupancy and room rates have also rebounded since, with Singapore welcoming a record 8.3 million visitors last year.

The planned hotel's target guests are repeat visitors, business travellers jetting in for meetings, and airline crew.

HVS, with partner consultant DTZ Debenham Tie Leung (SEA), is seeking investors who wish to lease, build and/or run the 60-year lease hotel. It should be four- to five-star, said Mr Ling.

The 7,700 sq m site is on top of a basement carpark at Terminal 3, with easy access to the terminal's departure hall and the MRT station. It will be linked to Terminals 1 and 2 via the Skytrain monorail.

Both the hotel and Terminal 3 would open in 2008.

Property analyst Colin Tan called Mr Ling's projection of five bids 'reasonable'.

The associate director of property consultancy Chesterton International said: 'A well-managed hotel will not only enhance Changi Airport's reputation as a hub but also Singapore's larger interest to be a global city as well.'

Its looking better and better - simple and refined

Hotel site at Terminal 3 attracts five bids

23 Aug 05

All submissions will be assessed on concept first



THE tender for a 60-year leasehold hotel site at Changi Airport's Terminal 3 attracted five bids when the expressions of interest exercise closed last Thursday.


DTZ Debenham Tie Leung director (investment sales) Tang Wei Leng said: 'We're going to shortlist three to four parties, based on concept and design and once we've done that, they will make presentations.'

Under the two-envelope system for the sale of the site, all submissions will be assessed on concept first before their prices are looked at.

DTZ and HVS International have been appointed by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore as hotel consultants to source for suitable investors in the project. The five bidders are mostly partnerships between developers (both local and overseas) with international hotel operators, said Ms Tang, without revealing any names.

Market watchers suggest that one of the bidders could be the Hong Leong Group, which includes Singapore-listed property group City Developments and its London-listed hotel unit Millennium & Copthorne Hotels.

Ms Tang declined to comment.

She said that besides design/concept and price, other key factors that will determine the award of the site include credentials of the hotel operators, their source of capital and their proposed positioning and branding for the hotel at Terminal 3.

The price may be expressed as an upfront payment or an annualised payment spread over the 60-year lease term.

Some market watchers have suggested that some applicants may offer to pay an annualised sum plus a percentage of gross revenue.

The site can be developed up to a gross floor area of up to 32,200 sq m spread over eight or nine levels above the new terminal's north basement carpark. Unlike the two existing transit hotels (with a combined 146 rooms) which are located within the restricted areas of Changi Airport, the new hotel - which will have up to 400 rooms - is expected to be located in the public areas of Terminal 3.

The hotel, expected to be pitched at the three to four-star market, will cater to air travellers with short stopovers, as well as corporate travellers involved in businesses or meetings near the airport.

The hotel is expected to be ready when the new terminal opens in early 2008.

I think travellers have to clear customs first

5 major chains bidding for airport hotel

FIVE international hotel chains are in the race to build Changi Airport's first hotel for all travellers, not just transit passengers.

The group will be pared down over the next four weeks, and the winner is likely to be declared by the end of the year, said two consultants hired by the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) to handle the selection.

The proposals from contenders were dis- closed last Friday, a day after the deadline for hoteliers to stake their interest in building the 400-room, four- to five-star hotel at Terminal 3.

The terminal is expected to open in 2008.

At the moment, the nearest hotel for travellers is Changi Village Hotel while the two hotels within the restricted areas of Changi Airport are for transit passengers.

All the bidders for the new terminal's hotel are 'international names', said the consultants, HVS International and DTZ Debenham Tie Leung (SEA).

They declined to disclose the names.

HVS managing director David Ling said bidders had gone 'beyond' the brief and submitted designs that blend with the terminal.

'Terminal 3 has a lot of glass and green. That seems to have flowed through the concepts,' he added.

This is the second time CAAS has tried to pull off an airport hotel development.

Its first attempt in 2001 drew a nought because of the lacklustre economy.

The winner will be picked on how well it complements Terminal 3's functions and design, its experience in running hotels and its brand name, Mr Ling said.

'Terminals 1 and 2 are very efficient, but if you look at them from outside, they're nothing to shout about.'

'But Terminal 3, it has flair,' added Mr Ling.

'The hotel will be very prominent.

'It has to be really eye-catching, in a pleasant way.'
