Sceneca Residence and Its Government Land Sales (GLS) Tender

MCC Land’s successful bid of $248.9 million for the Tanah Merah Kechil Link site has secured them the development rights for the integrated project. The 99-year leasehold site sits just outside of Tanah Merah MRT station on the East-West line and will be developed into an integrated development with Sceneca Residence at its core.

In October 2020, Chinese developer MCC Land submitted a bid of $248.99 million for the Government Land Sales (GLS) tender organized by The Place Holdings. Their successful bid translated to a land rate of $1,255 per square foot per plot ratio (psf ppr). They edged out several developers including SC Global Development, who submitted a bid of $246.8 million.

The Sceneca Residence complex will be part of the integrated development, offering premium residential units and a variety of amenities such as retail, lifestyle, and leisure offerings. The project is expected to open in 2022, providing a much-needed boost to the residential property market in Tanah Merah.

It is expected that MCC Land’s winning bid will set the benchmark for future GLS tenders in the area and encourage more developers to invest in Tanah Merah’s potential.


The conclusion of the Government Land Sales (GLS) tender for Sceneca Residence saw Chinese developer MCC Land’s Hao Yuan Investment emerge as the successful bidder with a top bid of $440.9 million. This translates to a land cost of $1,463 psf ppr for the mixed-use site located at Tanah Merah Kechil Link, which fronts Tanah Merah MRT Station on one side and is directly opposite Changi General Hospital on the other.

MCC Land’s winning bid of $248.99 million outbid 14 other competitors and broke the previous record set by Far East Consortium International Ltd in 2019 at AMK Avenue 10. The top bid is also 24% higher than the second-highest bid submitted by developer SC Global Developments, which was $200.14 million.

With this new record set for the GLS tender, we will likely see an increase in land prices across Singapore going forward. Despite this, MCC Land’s successful bid is indicative of their confidence in the future potential of this mixed-use site, and further cement their presence in Singapore’s real estate market.
