Work on the development is expected to commence in November 2009 and be completed by November 2012.
This contract comes two months after the group was awarded the job of building Waterfront Key, a 437-unit joint-venture development between Frasers Centrepoint & Far East Organization, and will boost Lian Beng’s order book to about $658 million. The group’s existing project portfolio includes the development of camp facilities at Kranji, Kovan Residences, Amber Residences, The Ritz-Carlton Residences, Cairnhill Singapore.
