Jeremy Lake, Savills’ handling executive for investment sales and also funding markets, was then priced estimate as stating that a closing day would be selected once validated rate of interest had been gotten from at least one developer.
The overview price of $550 million for the location calculates to $2,508 psf per plot ratio after considering the 7% bonus offer GFA for verandas. The development price payable for the 7% bonus offer GFA is about $18.8 million.
