The Hill Street property is close to a plethora of prominent historical landmarks such as the National Museum and St Andrew's Cathedral, upscale shopping malls such as Capitol Piazza and Raffles City, and entertainment venues including Clarke Quay and Marina Bay Sands.

"Hotel development sites in the Central Area are rarely available. The last hotel site that was sold was along Cuscaden Road. The sale in 2016 achieved a land price of $2,145 psf ppr," Galven Tan, Director, Capital Markets, CBRE said.

The public tender will close on December 13.
