Diversified real estate firm SingHaiyi Group said it would buy Park West property at Jalan Lempeng for S$840.9 million after a tender submitted by its joint-venture company was accepted by the owners of the property.

Sing-Haiyi Gold is a 50-50 joint venture between SingHaiyi Land, a subsidiary of the company, and Haiyi Wealth, an entity controlled by Gordon Tang and Celine Tang, who are the controlling shareholders and directors of the company.

The property comprises a leasehold estate of 99 years with a land area of approximately 58,867 square metres with a plot ratio of 2.1, the company said in a regulatory filing late on Thursday evening.

A tender fee of S$1 million had been paid upon the submission of the tender offer by the joint venture.

The JV shall make a payment of 2.5 percent of the purchase price within 10 business days from the acceptance date, the company said.
