The general public tender for High Point, a 59-unit residence block at 30 Mount Elizabeth, will close on July 28, according to sales agent Savills. The property was relaunched for collective sale on March 21 with an overview price of $550 million, following a previous effort final year that saw Hong Kong-listed Shun Tak Holdings abort its investment of the residential property.

This is due to the fact that foreign homeowners are going to have to pay a greater ABSD (Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty) when they buy a replacement property “and also for that reason may be much less eager to take part the collective sale,” he adds in.
