TID Residential Pte Ltd, a joint venture between Hong Leong Group and Mitsui Fudosan, won the GLS site for Lentoria at Lentor Hills Road (Parcel B) with a S$$276.36 million bid. This amounted to S$1,130 psf per plot ratio (psf ppr). This project is expected to yield 267 residential units and slated to launch in 2023 or early 2024.
Lentoria's site comprises a high-rise zone of up to 19 storeys and a low-rise zone of 8 storeys. Depending on the arrangement of the residential blocks, some blocks might get unblocked views of the Thomson Hills and Teachers' Housing Estate.
Lentoria is tucked away within a quiet private residential area close to natural greenery, which is good news for those who want to enjoy some peace and serenity. Conveniently located near the Lentor MRT station, the future Lentor neighbourhood will feature parks and many commercial amenities for residents.
