The winning bid of $81.1 million was submitted by SingHaiyi Huajiang Amber, a subsidiary of SingHaiyi, was duly accepted by the owners of the property on Tuesday.

SingHaiyi Huajiang Amber is a 50-50 joint venture between Corporate Bridge, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company, and Huajiang Properties II, an entity controlled by Gordon and Celine Tang, controlling shareholders and directors of SingHaiyi.

To redevelop the site to a gross plot ratio of 1.4, SingHaiyi Huajiang Amber will pay an additional development charge of about $3 million.

The acquisition will be funded by internal resources and bank borrowings, says SingHaiyi Huajiang Amber.
