A major developer headquartered in Singapore, GuocoLand has substantial land bank in the embedded markets of Singapore, China, Malaysia and Vietnam, which it will continue to build on.
As a major developer in the Singapore property market, GuocoLand has built up a quality land bank and a portfolio of prominent developments in the prime districts of Singapore – Goodwood Residence in the Orchard-Scotts area, Sophia Residence located at the prime Mount Sophia area and Leedon Heights Site, next to the prestigious Leedon Park Good Class Bungalow area. Acclaimed architects and landscape specialists have been engaged to work on these high-end developments to enhance their appeal to sophisticated home buyers. GuocoLand is recognized for its efforts in developing eco-friendly award-winning projects which includes receiving the prestigious Building and Construction Authority (BCA) Green Mark Platinum Award.
In November 2010, GuocoLand successfully acquired a land parcel which occupies a prime location in proximity to the Tanjong Pagar MRT station within the Central Business District (“CBD”) at a bid price of S$1.71 billion. GuocoLand’s proposed eco-friendly mixed use development on this 1.5 hectare site will be a landmark project. With a permissible building height of 280 metres above sea level, this development has the potential to be the tallest building in this area and will command panoramic views of the city skyline and across the CBD to the Marina Bay area. The Tanjong Pagar area has been earmarked by the Government for revamp into the next waterfront city.
GuocoLand also owns an office building known as Tung Centre which is located at Collyer Quay in Singapore’s Central Business District at Raffles Place.
GuocoLand in Singapore is at the forefront of developing green buildings. This is evidenced by the Group’s Green Mark Award winning residential developments in Singapore to date. Sophia Residence and Goodwood Residence were awarded the Green Mark Platinum Award, the highest honour for a “green building” accorded by the Building and Construction Authority (BCA) in 2009 and 2007 respectively. The Waterline and Elliot at the East Coast were awarded the Green Mark Gold Award in 2010 and 2009 respectively. The Quartz won the BCA Certified Green Mark Award for its outstanding green features in 2006. Our award winning developments also include The Stellar and Le Crescendo which were awarded the BCA Construction Excellence Merit Award 2010 and 2008 respectively, and Leonie Studio which was awarded the BCA Best Buildable Design Award 2007.
