The Ang Mo Kio Ave 1 site saw 15 bidders and a top bid of $1,118 psf ppr. Land zoned for residential in Ang Mo Kio tends to attract many bidders. For example, Thomson Impressions saw 18 bidders in 2014, The Panorama had 12 bidders in 2013 and Centro Residences drew 14 bids in 2007.

The level of bidding among developers showed their confidence and any restriction induced by the pandemic is temporary.
