Among the three newly released plots, the Lentor Central site has the potential to be built up to a maximum of 23 storeys with a yield of 470 housing units. The Lentor Hills Road (Parcel B) site can be built within low-rise and high-rise zones of 8 storeys and 19 storeys, with a yield of 265 units in total.

Both these sites are on the Confirmed List and are now open for tender.

The third site, Lentor Gardens, is on the Reserve List and will only be launched for tender when a successful application with an acceptable price for the site is made.

All three sites have a combined potential yield of about 1,265 residential units. 

Larger projects will require a longer time frame to complete, so developers can choose between the Lentor Central and Lentor Hills Road site depending on their budget and risk appetite. 

Previous developments in Lentor

A previous site at Lentor Hills Road (Parcel A) was awarded to Intrepid Investments, GuocoLand, and TID Residential in January 2022, one of the first land sales since the cooling measures were introduced on 16 December.

GuocoLand beat eight other offers to clinch the Lentor Central site (it will be the upcoming Lentor Modern) tender in July 2021 with a winning bid of S$586.6 million (S$1,060 psf ppr). This brings up the total number of developments in the Lentor cluster to four in total.

Mr Steven Tan, CEO of OrangeTee & Tie, expects bids for the new sites to be healthy. However, according to Tan, developers will also likely be mindful that supply in this area could increase with more land parcels slated for future release. 

He projects 7 to 10 bidders per plot, with a selling price of between S$1,000 and S$1,100 psf ppr for each site. This translates to a final bid price of S$434.1 million to S$477.6 million for Lentor Central, and S$244.6 million to S$269 million for Lentor Hills Road (Parcel B).

Lentor Hills Estate

Lentor Central, Lentor Gardens and Lentor Hills Road (Parcel B) sites are nestled within the new Lentor Hills Estate, part of the Ang Mo Kio planning area.

The sites are near the upcoming Hillock Park, so future residents will be able to access green spaces right at their doorstep, with the sprawling Thomson Nature Park being just over a kilometre away.

With mixed-use development Lentor Modern slated to be completed in the future, residents in the neighbourhood can enjoy the convenience of amenities such as a supermarket, F&B outlets, and childcare centres.  


The area is excellent for families, with popular schools such as Anderson Primary School, CHIJ St Nicholas Girls’ School and Mayflower Primary School nearby. 

Parents with young children can send them to My First Skool at Block 601, just five minutes away on foot. 


Lentor MRT station on the Thomson-East Coast Line will be a six to ten-minute walk away. Residents can get to Woodlands MRT within three stops.

Those who drive can access the SLE or CTE in under seven minutes via Upper Thomson Road or Yio Chu Kang Road. 

Rare buying opportunity

Buyers looking for an unblocked view might want to keep an eye on these projects – the sites are situated within a landed property enclave, so units will give residents scenic views of greenery or landed houses. 

HDB upgraders may find future developments here enticing, as private condos in the vicinity are few and far between. Tan notes a lack of upgrading opportunities in the area, which suggests buyers may face fierce competition for the condos when they finally launch.

The last condo launch was a freehold development The Calrose, back in 2005. It is currently transacting at an average selling price of S$2.03 million (S$1,457 psf). 

The tender for the Lentor Central and Lentor Hills Road (Parcel B) sites will close at 12 pm on 13 September 2022.
