Zhenro Group Co Ltd won the auction with a land premium of 1.35 billion yuan, representing a bid price 41.06% higher than the auction reserve price.

This marks another successful auction after one from the same project was completed in November 2012.

Zhenro Group has total assets around 30 billion yuan and was jointly ranked by industry authorities China Real Estate Research Association, China Real Estate Industry Association and China Real Estate Evaluation Centre as one of the top 50 PRC-based property developers in 2012.

It is principally engaged in large-scale developments in new towns and high-end developments in prime municipal districts.

This reflects its confidence in the high-end positioning of the project and the outstanding quality of its land parcels.

“The repeated successful land auctions show that China’s land market is on track for a healthy recovery. We believe that with committed support by the national policies in urbanization, quality new town development projects at reasonable prices have both great development prospects and substantial room for appreciation,” said China New Town Development Executive Chairman Shi Jian.

He added that intense competition at the land auction also reflects strong market confidence in the recently announced potential equity stake by China Development Bank International Holdings.

The auctioned land parcel has a land area of 110,021.90 sq m with a plot ratio of 1.01 times which is equivalent to GFA of 111,122 sq m. The sale price sets a new record in the entire Shanghai Baoshan District for this year.
