    Default MDA CEO buying $10 million Corals condo

    DESPITE flat demand in the luxury market so far this year, at least two condominium units with a price tag of over $10 million each were sold over the past fortnight. Keppel Land told the Singapore Exchange on Tuesday that family members of Mrs Koh-Lim Wen Gin, a former Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) chief planner, bought the units at its upcoming project Corals at Keppel Bay. Mrs Koh has been an independent director of Keppel Land since January 2010.

    One of the buyers is her daughter, Ms Koh Lin-Net, the chief executive of the Media Development Authority. Ms Koh took office last November and prior to that was deputy secretary of trade at the Ministry of Trade and Industry.

    Ms Koh and her husband Lawrence Low bought a 3,477 sq ft four-bedder at Corals for slightly below $10.1 million, which works out to around $2,901 per sq ft for the second-floor unit. The option to purchase is dated May 19.

    Civil servants, MPs and Ministers earning above $100,000 should have their tax returns publicly available for public viewing, so that sinkees are assured that they wealth are earned through legitimate means and that sinkees can learn the secrets of accumulating such enormous wealth.

    23% discount each, meaning 2.3 million per unit. They just made almost 5 million just for being related?

    Now you know why the policy makers do not want to curb private property prices?



    Two units were sold to the family members of Mrs Koh-Lim Wen Gin:

    Unit #02-08 (3,477 sf – 4 bedroom)
    Purchasers: Lawrence Low Kok Leong and Koh Lin-Net
    Date of Option to purchase: 19 May 2013
    Purchase Price: $10,085,250 ($2,901 psf)
    Discount: 10%+10%+3%

    Unit #01-08 (3,660 sf – 4 bedroom)
    Purchasers: Kevin Koh In-Chuen
    Date of Option to purchase: 20 May 2013
    Purchase Price: $10,306,820 ($2,816 psf)
    Discount: 10%+10%+3%

    they didn't make 5 million out of it. they saved themselves that sum of money during the purchase.
    any sums made of the profits later is another issue altogether... totally unrelated to this discount

    Successful people buying luxury property... nothing wrong with that at all. The fact that they're related has no bearing on the issue whatsoever.

    When I buy stuff from my regular camera shop, I get a bigger discount compared to ordinary consumers too. It's because I'm an important customer who has already spent a bomb buying all sorts of camera gear. I get 15% to 20% off whereas if you went to the same shop, you wouldn't get more than 10% off the advertised price.

    Important people are treated better. That's why every single ambitious person in the world strives hard to successful in life.

    I honestly can't understand why so many members here make such a big fuss over the obvious.
