达士岭的一套五居室组屋公寓最近于2020年九月中旬以108万新元成交。

这是达士岭22至25楼的单元最高成交记录。

此前记录的最高成交价格为交易于2016年的105万新元。

ERA Realty Network房产公司的代理Prissy Poh在接受Mothership采访时表示,这套1140平方英尺的公寓是一对30多岁的夫妇购买的。

这对小两口在附近工作,只在8月30日看了这套公寓一次,第二天就出价108万新元将其买下。

Poh表示,该单元自2019年以来一直在市场上出售,在现在的买家买下它之前被看了大概四到五次。在“断路器”措施实施期间,看房被暂停了。

有10年房龄的公寓

达士岭2004年五月作为组屋公寓“按订单建造”项目启动,目前已进入其99年租期的第十年。

在2014年底公寓业主达到五年最低居住年限后不久,该项目开始以创纪录的价格出售。

《商业时报》报道,一套位于达士岭43层至45层的五居室公寓在九月创下了125.8万新元的转售记录。

一套位于达士岭41层,面积为1151平方英尺的五居室公寓在五月以123.2万新元售出。

达士岭是迄今为止唯一一个位于市中心毗邻中央商务区的“按订单建造”项目。

PSP's Tan Cheng Bock voted out as Sec-Gen after alleged party infighting

Apr 01, 2021 | 🚀 Fathership

Former Republic of Singapore Air Force colonel Francis Yuen has been appointed secretary-general of the Progress Singapore Party (PSP), taking over from party founder Tan Cheng Bock.

Dr Tan, 80, has become party chairman. This was announced by the PSP on Thursday (April 1), after its central executive committee (CEC) met on Wednesday.

In a Facebook post, PSP Non-Constituency MP Leong Mun Wai said Mr Yuen was the committee's unanimous choice to "lead PSP to the next level".

"Francis will lead and galvanise the party while (Dr Tan) concentrates on strengthening external support for PSP," he wrote.

Chairman role is basically a glorified flower pot

In many organisations around the world, the Secretary-General position has the authority to make all the decisions of running the organisation - or party. The Chairman generally does not have any more power pe se than any other voting member of the Executive Committee, except the power to run board meetings.

Comparatively, the Secretary-General is like the Chief Executive Officer of the company.

For example, the People's Action Party chairman is Gan Kim Yong while the Secretary-General is Lee Hsien Loong.

Party infighting?

The change comes amid reports of a rift in the party. An online news site, the RedWire Times, said in March that some party cadres have demanded for Dr Tan to step down as secretary-general, and allow for "more talented rising stars" to take over.

Commenting on the Redwire Times report, PSP member Kumaran Pillai said the new CEC line-up is in no way a reflection of any disagreement over the leadership of the party. Rather, Mr Yuen assuming the secretary-general role is part of a planned transition, he added.

“When Dr Tan started the party, he said he will mentor someone younger, and he hasn’t deviated from his original mission. People shouldn’t be reading too much into it.”

Mr Pillai added that he had a long dialogue with the party cadre who was quoted anonymously by Redwire Times as saying that some cadres are mustering support to demand for Dr Tan to step down from his post.

“His intention is not to stage a coup within the party. I think people have misinterpreted it and misunderstood what he said, sometimes it's like playing broken telephone, you say one thing and by the time you get to the last person, the whole story gets distorted along the way... there’s no infighting, there's no malice,” he said.

In other words, the flower pot needs watering.
