Former school site up for tender in Bukit Timah

A PLOT of land in Upper Bukit Timah that can be used for commercial purposes or as a foreign system school will go up for tender tomorrow.

The built-up site on Jalan Seh Chuan was occupied by the Jurong Garden School, and Seh Chuan High School before that.

It is close to the Canadian International School, the German European School Singapore and the Beauty World Shopping Centre.

It has an area of 3,464 sq m - about half the size of a football field. The building on it has a gross floor area of 4,221 sq m.

Tenancy is for an initial period of three years with a renewal option for two further three-year terms.

The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has received about five inquiries for the site but declined to reveal approximate figures for the tender.

Bidders have until 11am on Nov 5 to lodge tenders.

The site showround will be on Oct 23.

The SLA has awarded more than 40 properties for educational use since April last year.
