Former Peace Centre/Mansion
Former Peace Centre/Mansion is a 99-year leasehold new launch condominium located at 1 Sophia Road.
After a fifth collective sale attempt, CEL Development, Sing-Haiyi Crystal and Ultra Infinity successfully got themselves a deal for the former Peace Centre/Mansion. It is predicted that the development will be a mixed-use development that has unrivalled accessibility. With a S$650m price tag, the unit land rate for the deal is S$1,426 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr). Currently, it has the potential to yield 319 strata units.
