29 June 2021 – As LEEDON GREEN is just across the road from HYLL ON HOLLAND, many of my clients were interested to compare both of these new condo launches.  It seems that the developer’s breakeven price for HYLL ON HOLLAND is lower than that of LEEDON GREEN.  HYLL ON HOLLAND is being built on the enbloc sites of Estoril and Hollandia which were purchased at $1654 psf ppr and $1703 psf ppr respectively.  On the other hand, LEEDON GREEN is being built on the enbloc site of Tulip Gardens which was purchased at $1790 psf ppr.   No wonder that the developer of HYLL ON HOLLAND has more leeway than LEEDON GREEN to reduce prices last weekend to move sales ….   Click here for the detailed comparison.

28 June 2021 – Over the weekend, I attended the new condo re-launch of HYLL ON HOLLAND.   Response was very good – more than 80 units were sold over just 3 days.  This project only has 2-bedroom and 3-bedroom units, ranging from 570sf to 1055sf.  The layout of their 3BR 1055sf showflat is really good — these units also have good quiet facing towards the greenery of Holland Hill.  I was with my client up on Holland Hill last Saturday to check out the actual site below, and we were surprised to find that at the top of the hill, there is a flight of steps that will lead us down either to Holland Village MRT (10 mins walk) or to Commonwealth MRT station (20 mins walk).  Note that the showflat is not at the actual site.  Click here for details.
