    They should rename it to something that sounds more classy. City Vista sounds like City Square, City Edge, City Lights, etc all low and mid end developments. Come on man! This is district 9 Cairnhill. Why name it like the rest? Will the potential buyers buy something that sounds so cheap? I don't understand the developers some times.

    Lehman's failure won't affect projects: CES

    The 2 condos are substantially sold; funds to complete projects secured

    By LYNETTE KHOO


    CHIP Eng Seng (CES) said its two joint-venture projects with a real estate equity fund managed by Lehman Brothers are unaffected by the collapse of the US investment bank.


    CityVista: The 70-unit project at Peck Hay Rd is already 54% sold at an average $2,550 psf, while The Parc Condo at West Coast Walk is 95% sold at an average price of $880 per square foot

    Its JV partner is Lehman Brothers Real Estate Partners II (LBREP II), a US$2.4 billion fund that was closed in 2005. Only a fraction of that sum - some US$400 million - came from Lehman Brothers and its employees.

    CES had formed a 50-50 JV with LBREP II's wholly owned special purpose vehicle WM Mauritius Holdings for two high-rise freehold condominium projects.

    But a reassuring fact is that the 695-unit The Parc Condominium at West Coast Walk is already 95 per cent sold at an average price of $880 per square foot (psf). The 70-unit CityVista at Peck Hay Road is 54 per cent sold at an average $2,550 psf.

    All instalments of purchase money and construction loans have since been deposited into the Project Account of the building projects as stipulated by the Housing Developers Act.

    'With financing being secured with the bank, funds needed to finish the whole project was already secured. Not to mention that the projects were launched successfully and the deposits we collected are more than enough to fund the two projects till completion,' CES chief executive Raymond Chia told BT.

    The two projects are expected to be completed by the second half of 2010.

    CES teamed up with Lehman to bid for four projects in total. Two tenders did not succeed.

    Asked if Lehman's collapse will cause CES to search for a new JV partner for future projects, Mr Chia said CES is not short of choice, having landed on the radar screen of equity funds since its partnership with the Lehman fund in 2006. CES has since received enquiries from large funds on opportunities to work together on projects in Singapore and Vietnam, Mr Chia said.

    But he noted that CES can take on larger projects on its own now and, hence, has more options besides JVs. There also is the support of its 25 per cent shareholder Citadel Equity Fund, part of the Chicago-based Citadel Investment Group. Both are working together on a freehold condo project Grange Infinite, which is 100 per cent sold.

    While Lehman's failure may hurt US commercial property, its impact here is likely to be cushioned.

    Lehman Brothers is believed to own a 45,000 square feet building at Clemenceau Avenue worth about $80 million. Its managed fund teamed up with Australia's Lend Lease in a 75:25 JV to buy Paradiz Centre in Selegie Road for $138 million in 2006.

    Paradiz Centre is being redeveloped and slated for completion by the end of this year. But it is understood that Lehman's collapse will not affect the fund that owns this project and Lend Lease has pre-emptive rights to buy out Lehman's stake in the venture.

    Lehman Brothers also occupies minimal amount of office space here. It currently takes up about 40,000 square feet of office space in Suntec City Office Tower Five, a mere 3.1 per cent of the total Suntec City office space of 1.29 million square feet, according to DMG & Partners Securities.

    Its other assets have been divested. The office building at 71 Robinson Road which Lehman jointly owned with Kajima Overseas Asia in April was sold to a German fund for $743.8 million, higher than some $613.4 million they spent on the land and redevelopment. Lehman sold Novotel Clarke Quay last year to CDL Hospitality Real Estate Investment Trust at $219.8 million, double the amount it spent on it.

    We all know.
    But if we have the buying and holding power -why do you care?
    Perhaps - by trying to spread fear in every thread and pushing the prices down? Thats what we are seeing you as.

    Mr recession, is there a reason why you need to post all over the forum? What is your motive?

    I guess you are not familiar with property investment. Those who are rich has already invested their money into property early when majority think that the property is not doing well. That is the time when the price is lowest. When the property went up last year, they have already sold off their investment and cash in with the huge profit.

    Many others followed and invested last year when the property price is going up fast. These are the group of people that will be affected most if they do not have holding power and have not done their maths.

    Even if US goes into recession, Singapore will slow down but we will not crash down to earth. Lifes still goes on at a slower growth rate.

    BTW, in the worst case if majority are affected by US recession, you will not be spared either my friend.

    Great to know that you have 1 million in your bank. It's a reasonable sum of money to ride over if the economy is bad. However, it can be gone in just a blink if you make the wrong move. Take care and wish everyone is well.

    in hongkong, 1 in 4 people on hong kong island are millionaires. in no time, the number of people having 1 million net worth in singapore will surpass 77000 to more than half a million. in no time, one would need at least 3 million sing to retire comfortably. 1 million is too easily attainable these days.....

    Last 30 CityVista Residences units sold for about $147m

    Buyer is said to be a property fund managed by Alpha Investment Partners

    By KALPANA RASHIWALA


    A JOINT venture involving Chip Eng Seng has sold the last 30 units at CityVista Residences for about $147 million, BT understands. The 20-storey freehold project of 70 units at Peck Hay Road in the Cairnhill area received Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) recently.

    CityVista Residences: Savills is understood to have been involved in the deal for the project's last 30 units

    The buyer is said to be a property fund managed by Alpha Investment Partners. Alpha is a unit of Keppel Land.

    The transaction involves 28 apartments (three and four-bedders) and two penthouses. The price for the apartments is thought to be about $1,850 per square foot (psf). The psf price for the two penthouses is said to be much lower as they come with substantial roof terrace areas, making up about half of their saleable area.

    Each duplex penthouse, which has five bedrooms and a private pool, has an area exceeding 9,000 square feet.

    Last month, four units in the project were sold at $1,900-1,980 psf, according to developers' monthly sales data released by the Urban Redevelopment Authority. The Chip Eng Seng-Lehman venture began selling the project in June 2007, with 21 units sold at prices ranging from $2,397 psf to $2,828 psf.

    Market watchers suggest that with the project receiving TOP, it made sense for the partners to give a bulk discount and offload the remaining units so that they can clear this portfolio, repay bank loans and move on to other things.

    Chip Eng Seng has been successful at state land tenders of late. This year alone, it has clinched 99-year-leasehold executive condominium development sites in Pasir Ris and Punggol in partnership with NTUC Choice Homes. On its own, too, Chip Eng Seng was awarded a 99-year private condo site in Simei.

    Savills is understood to have been involved in the deal for the last 30 units at CityVista Residences.

    Meanwhile, billionaire Peter Lim is said to have been the buyer of 20 units sold last month at Sui Generis, a freehold condo at Balmoral Crescent which received TOP a few months ago.

    The former 'remisier king' paid around $95 million or $1,935 psf in the secondary market deal.
