Amazingly, their breakeven for this site is only $1100-1200 PSF (bought for $700 psfppr).

With such small unit sizes, they are going to cash in profit of around $1000 PSF+ (around $90+ mill) yet they only paid $71 mill for the site.

Wish I was a developer...

Melvin Poh. Also behind Marina House consortium purchase.....Wonder if same Melvin Poh who is finance director for Roxy Pacific?? Considering Roxy also in Marina House deal?

Either way, might mean that Robinson site likely to push $3k PSF for small units (if 99yr LH at Tg Pagar is $2.2-2.6k, must get premium for location and FH status).

this would be one that wld test the psf appetite of investors, however units are small, and like Alexis, the psf probably hit a record high for that particular area but the small configuration balance up the quantum.

new projects these days still have deferred payments? i guess that is factored into the purchase price if it is offered but is deferrd payment even allowed today?

TOP 2016, wow $$$ tied up for many years... for me such investment is for people with excess $$$ and willing to wait...

wow...u folks even knw the who the director is....n the pricing they bought. I'm impressed =)

~Estimated indicative psf shld be fr 2.5k to 3.5kpsf depending on level, unit size and facing.

~Let's not forget the 76 Shenton factor...sold out in 1 day despite being on 99 yr leasehold and further fr mrt with pricing averaging 2.2-2.6kpsf. Robinson Suites is freehold and hence, i guess the response shld be much better. Pricing shld be from 1.3xmil+ up estimated.

~Low floors will face away from Lau Pa Sat so no satay smell

Pre-booking of choice units have already started...do feel free to contact me at 81835132 if you are keen to find out more with rgds to this development. Will post latest updates here on Robinson Suites after developer's briefing.

Cheers

CBD FH or 99 yr LH, doesnt really matter, it is all abt rental yield.

So if u paid a high psf for the unit, you are not going to get good rental yield as compared to those that were sold earlier.

and the units are so small, almost MM size, i think most of the buyers are not going to stay there, but to rent out for rental yield.

You do your sum before jumping in, cos the tenants are not going to care whether he/she is going to rent a FH or 99 LH for stay.

Rent in CBD has not surpass its high in 2008 but capital value has already exceeded 20% and climbing.

So yield has fallen from in excess of 5% in 07/08 to around 4% or lesser for most new project.

Capital value in CBD has not exceed previous high. Still 10-15% below 2007 level according to recent reports. If you are talking about OCR, yes. Not CCR.

Can't remember but should be somewhere aorund 2000 psf. Anyway, you can't use one project as benchmark. CCR consists of far more projects then just Icon. For example, Orchard residences hit a high of 5k + psf in 2007 but now, it is 4k+. So you can't draw conclusion by just seeing one project. At an average, CCR is still 10-15% below peak.



Explain Icon studio avg 1700-1800psf.

What psf was it in 07/08?

It was 1500/1600psf. Icon is a good reference since it was the only new project TOP in late 07 availabe for rental. Sail TOP late 08 was already affected by subprime crisis.

Now we are talking about yeild for CBD aren't we? Orchard Residences is quite out of context.

We are talking about capital value. I don't believe using one project as reference. It is a bad analysis if you ask me. If we are talking about CCR capital value, we have to consider all projects. Else, you will be talking about Icon capital vs yield in 2007 and 2010. Btw, my agent told me Icon avg 2k psf and nearby Clift avg 2.3k psf in 2007.

Considering the prices of property in the cbd, rental yield there is not even good. people are looking for capital appreciation, and taking into account the current economic sentiments, it does not seem like something to get very excited over. If these people are buying Robinson Suites because its freehold, they are blind not to see Emerald Gardens which is 999 at almost half the price. Mind you, this development will loose its views anyway, unless looking over the roof of Lau Pa Sat is something of a view in their opinion.
