VAN HOLLAND CONDOMINIUM
From the developers who built the beautiful Lincoln Suites, we bring you a Review of the new freehold Van Holland condo at Holland Road. This is not only a prime location in an upmarket neighbourhood, on the fringe of a GCB (Good Class Bungalow) area, it is also very conveniently positioned.
Note: This is NOT an advertisement for sale.
The Van Holland condo occupies the site of the former Toho Mansions, directly across Holland Road from Holland Village. Here you have the lifestyle precinct and eateries of Holland Village on your doorstep, that draws fans from far and wide. You also have Holland Village MRT station 240 metres or 4 minutes walk away. In addition, a new mixed development is being built in the middle of Holland Village, by Far East Organisation, that will extend it and add even more buzz and interesting lifestyle spaces to enjoy.
Holland Road stretches from the Singapore Botanic Gardens and Dempsey Hill on the edge of Orchard Road, past Holland Village, Henry Park and Mount Sinai, to Pandan Valley on the west.
The Van Holland condo itself sits on an elevated site midway along this stretch, indisputably one of Singapore’s most upmarket landed housing estates. It counts the Good Class Bungalow (GCB) areas of Leedon Park, Oei Tiong Ham Park, Cornwall Gardens, and Belmont Road as its neighbours.
This area forms part of District 10, of which Holland Village, usually shortened to “Holland V”, is a focal point. Holland V draws both locals and expats, with its slightly bohemian character, “hang loose” atmosphere, trendy pubs, cafes and restaurants, and arty shops. It has its own distinctive character and charm that makes it an enduringly favoured place to chill out with friends.
Van Holland Singapore . Background
The Van Holland site was formerly that of Toho Mansion, that was put up for sale. KBD Ventures, an entity of construction and property developer Koh Brothers, topped the bidding for the site with an offer of SGD$120.43 million, in March 2018.
At that time, Mr Francis Koh, managing director and group CEO of Koh Brothers said, “We are excited to have won this prime and rare freehold site that is in the heart of the vibrant Holland Village lifestyle enclave.”
He also said that Koh Brothers intended to create a fresh concept for the Van Holland condo, that will offer an integrated seamless experience with the great connectivity and convenience of this up-and-coming neighbourhood and its highly anticipated plans for a makeover.
The freehold Toho Mansion, with a land area of 4,427.8 square metres (47,660 square feet), is zoned residential with permissible plot ratio of up to 1.4. This allows it to be developed to a maximum gross floor area of 66,725 sq ft of built up space, or roughly 80 apartment units.

VAN HOLLAND CONDO FLOOR PLANS
The Van Holland floor plan layouts are pending approval from relevant authorities. Please drop us a line via the Contact Form below if you would like to have the Van Holland condo floor plans once available.
VAN HOLLAND SINGAPORE SITE PLAN
The Van Holland condo site is a slanted roughly rectangular parcel of land along Holland Road, with its shorter south-west boundary facing the road and Holland Village.
All the land on this side of the road is zoned low-density and low-rise, with a plot ratio of 1.4. This means the apartment blocks here are no more than 5 storeys high, and the landed houses are mainly one or two storeys high only.
On the north-west of the Van Holland condo is Urban Edge @ Holland V, a small 5-storey high development of 31 units that completed in 2007. While behind it is the start of the landed housing estates of Ford Avenue and Leedon Park, beautiful houses with landscaped grounds and private pools, some of them the designated Good Class Bungalows.
Even across the road, where Holland Village and the upcoming mixed development are, the land is zoned no higher than mid-rise. This gives an open feel to the Van Holland condo development and allows for good wind flow and a more relaxed setting.

VAN HOLLAND PRICE RANGES
The Van Holland prices have not been finalised yet. Please drop us a note via the Contact Form if you wish to be kept updated on the indicative pricing.
The detailed Van Holland price list will only be available on the launch sales day itself. But typically, indications of expected pricing can be deduced from the land and development costs.
Koh Brothers through its entity KBD Ventures, paid SGD$120.43 million for the 47,660 square feet freehold Toho Mansion land.
Zoned for residential use under URA’s Master Plan with a plot ratio of 1.4, the site has a high development baseline. So no development charge was payable.
With that plot ratio, we can get a gross floor area of 66,725 square feet. This works out to a land rate of S$1,805 PSF PPR (per square foot per plot ratio).
After factoring in all development costs, including for marketing, financing, overheads and construction cost, the break even to Koh Brothers is possibly in the region of $2,400 to $2,500 PSF.
Hence the final sale price could be around $2,700 to $2,800 PSF, but it still compares quite favourably to similar freehold projects nearby, such as Petit Jervois in the Jervois area ($2,800 to $3,000 PSF). Not forgetting that projects in the Orchard Road area less than 10 minutes drive away, are ranging between $3,000 to $3,900 PSF.
