4 Orchard Condo Units Bought By Foreign Buyers In Bulk Purchase, All Fully Renovated

4 Orchard Condo Units Bought By Chinese & US Nationals Are Between 3,850 & 4,100 Square Feet In Size

Singapore’s property market is heating up again, with premium condominiums and HDB flats going for high prices.

In what is becoming a trend, foreign buyers are also snapping up condo units in bulk.

The latest notable acquisition is the purchase of four units of a condo in Orchard, bought by Chinese and United States (US) nationals.

4 Orchard condo units bought for S$60M

The four units in question are considered the larger ones in the development, ranging from 3,850 to 4,100 square feet (sq ft) in size.

While three of them sold for about S$12 million each, the fourth one cost S$20 million.

The total price tag of the bulk purchase was an eye-watering S$60 million.

Order placed by buyers from China & US

According to PropNex, which brokered the deal, three foreign buyers from China and the US placed the order together from the developer, YTL Corporation.

The transaction reportedly took place last Friday (9 Sep).

However, a check with the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) showed no record of the purchase, Zaobao said.

This could be because it’s a recent transaction, or because no caveat was lodged as the buyers paid in full with cash without taking out a mortgage.

4 Orchard condo units are fully renovated

In addition, the four units bought were show flats set up in the development, which was completed in 2017.

Thus, they’re already fully renovated and fitted out, PropNex said.

This means the buyers can move in straight away if they want to.

The 3,843 sq ft unit was bought by a trust under Mr Han Jinghua and his wife, and works out to $5,800 per sq ft (psf) — a new high for the development.

Mr Han, born in Ulanqab City, Inner Mongolia, is reportedly the only person from the city listed in the Hurun Rich List 2022.

With a fortune of S$443 million (RMB2.2 billion), he’s ranked as the 2,610th richest person in China.

Mr Han is currently a Singapore permanent resident, EdgeProp said.
