The Tengah Garden Walk GLS site was awarded to Taurus Properties SG for $400.3 million ($603 psf per plot ratio). At that time in June 2021, it set a new record price for an EC land sold under the GLS programme. This record has since been surpassed by Tenet (Tampines St 62 EC) and Bukit Batok West EC.
Taurus Properties SG is a joint venture between City Developments (CDL) and MCL Land. Other projects that they are currently working on include Piccadilly Grand and the Jalan Tembusu GLS site.
