Plans are afoot to redevelop the former Caldecott Broadcast Centre site right into fifteen 99-year Great Course Bungalows (GCBs), possibly making it the biggest collection of leasehold GCBs to be released within a predominantly freehold GCB area in Caldecott Hillside, reported The Straits Times (ST).
In an inner round seen by ST, Perennial Holdings proposed redeveloping the 752,015 sq ft site in Andrew Roadway right into 15 cottages. Each bungalow has a plot area of between 1,400 sq m (15,070 sq ft) and 23,300 sq m (250,800 sq ft).
Citing The Winning Move Properties, ST kept in mind that Perennial Chairman Kuok Khoon Hong is said to be taking the most significant story– which can fit as much as 11 GCBs– for his relations.
2021 saw the demand for deluxe residential property in Singapore pick up, and the same can be claimed of the GCB market. GCBs are viewed as status symbols. In 2020, 46 GCBs were sold; in 2021, 90 GCBs were offered.

Previously, as a result of the limited supply of land released with the Government Land Sales (GLS) Program, designers needed to look somewhere else to replenish their land banks. Nonetheless, with the recent statement to enhance the supply from 2022 onwards, we may soon see a slowdown in the en bloc scene.
