How did the new and beautiful Watten Estate Condo came about ? We have to thank the residents of the original Watten Estate Condo who agreed to the collective sale (otherwise known as en bloc). This is totally within the control of the residents and hence is what make private condo much more attractive than leasehold public housing. 全新美丽的 Watten Estate Condo 是如何诞生的？我们要感谢同意集体出售（也称为整体出售）的原瓦顿庄园公寓的居民。这完全在居民的控制范围内，因此私人公寓比租赁公共住房更具吸引力。
The original Watten Estate Condominium
Watten Estate Condominium in Shelford Road was first put up for en bloc sale in July 2019 at a price of $536 million. In September, the condo was put up again for collective sale via tender with a minimum price of $500 million.
Shelford Road 的 Watten Estate Condominium 于 2019 年 7 月首次以 5.36 亿新币的价格整体出售。 9 月，该公寓再次通过招标方式集体出售，最低价格为 5 亿新币。
With an amazing huge area of 220,241 sq ft, the freehold elevated site is zoned residential with a gross plot ratio of 1.4 and an allowable height of up to five storeys. At that minimum price of $500 million, it is about $1,622 per sq ft per plot ratio (psf ppr), or $1,570 psf ppr after factoring in an additional 8 per cent bonus gross floor area and the corresponding development charge.
拥有惊人的 220,241 平方英尺的巨大面积，永久业权的高架地块被划为住宅区，总容积率为 1.4，允许的高度可达五层。以 5 亿新币的最低价格计算，每平方英尺的容积率 (psf ppr) 约为 1,622 新币，或者在考虑额外 8% 的额外建筑面积和相应的开发费用后，为每平方英尺 1,570 新币。
The property previously comprised of just 104 units of townhouses and the apartments was built around 1983. Hence it was about 38 years old when the enbloc was approved. That made it about right for a leasehold condo. After the enbloc, it can be redeveloped into 286 units based on the mandatory minimum average size of 100 sq m.
该物业以前仅包含 104 套联排别墅，公寓建于 1983 年左右。因此，当整体获得批准时，它已有 38 年的历史。这使它成为租赁公寓的正确选择。整块后，可根据强制最小平均面积 100 平方米重新开发为 286 个单位。

The newspaper said it all. It was the biggest residential collective sale at that time. The minimum price was $500 million but it closed at $550.8 million !! Watten Estate Condominium's $550.8 million price tag is about 10 per cent higher than the minimum price of $500 million ! At this bid price, the owners could expect to receive gross sales proceeds of between $3.1 million and $6.5 million per unit. Nice !!!
这是当时最大的住宅集体拍卖。最低价为 5 亿新币，但收盘价为 5.508 亿新币！！ Watten Estate Condominium 5.508 亿新币的标价比 5 亿新币的最低价格高出约 10%！以这个投标价格，业主预计将获得每单位 310 万至 650 万新币的总销售收益。好的 ！！！
