Former School Up For Tender

Source : The Straits Times, Oct 13, 2008

TO EASE the space crunch in the education sector, the former Seh Chuan High School in Upper Bukit Timah will be put up for public tender by the Singapore Land Authority (SLA) on Wednesday.

With an approximate land area of 3,464 square metre and Gross Floor Area of about 4,221 sq m, the property is for education use.

It is located near other international schools such as the Canadian International School and the German European School Singapore.

Singapore's attractiveness as a regional hub for businesses and education has resulted in strong demand for space in the education sector.

Since April last year, SLA has awarded more than 40 State properties for educational use.

Said Mr Teo Cher Hian, SLA's director of Land Operations (Private) Division: 'In 2007, SLA had made available some 109,108 sq m in GFA... through public tender for commercial and foreign system schools. This is about 8,300 sq m more than that tendered in 2006.'

The tender for the former Seh Chuan High School will close on Nov 5.
