Marketed by Credo Real Estate, Hong Leong Garden currently comprises 72 apartments and 66 shop units. The site has an area of more than 150,000sqft with a lease term of 956 years.
Credo said that the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has also granted an approval to enlarge the site area by combining the adjoining state land parcel of nearly 13,500sqft.
Under its 2008 Master Plan, the site is zoned "Residential with commercial at 1st Storey" with a gross plot ratio of 1.6 and an allowable height of up to 12 storeys.
Deputy Managing Director at Credo Real Estate, Tan Hong Boon, said the site may be transformed into a condominium development with a self-contained hub that offers dining options and amenities to residents in the development and neighbouring housing estates.
