GuocoLand’s Lentor Mansion achieves 75% sales at launch

GuocoLand reported on March 17 that over two days – March 15-16 – 75% (or 400 units of 553) at Lentor Mansion had been sold; with nearly 100 units going under contract at their VIP Launch on March 15.

Lentor Mansion was jointly developed by GuocoLand Holdings and Hong Leong Holdings with two-to-five bedroom units spread among three 16-storey and three 8-storey buildings.

Price range for units sold ranged between $1.149 for a 2 bedroom apartment of 527 sq. ft and $3.512 for a five-bedroom property totalling 1,507 sq ft.

At launch, two-bedders were by far the most popular product type. Eighty-four percent of 199 three-bedders sold were three bedroom models while 176 four and five bedders sold (16% and 13% respectively).

Lentor Mansion was also the inaugural project to launch under URA’s new guidelines for harmonizing strata and floor area, selling units according to liveable space excluding air-conditioner ledges; under these URA pricing regulations, units sold at Lentor Mansion ranged between $2,104 and $2,478 per square foot.

Lentor Mansion was home to over 99% Singaporeans or permanent residents as buyers. Most buyers were owners with young families and single buyers also present.

Due to their flexible layout and living spaces, sales are exceeding expectations due to high-demand living areas with flexible layout. She also mentions how young families were attracted by the integrated childcare centre – something expected to be completed by 2027.
