The eight-storey structure has a 60-year lease from 1997. It has an overall of 104 strata units which are owned by 84 subsidiary proprietors.
Wintech Centre is located within 361m of the MacPherson MRT Station, which is an interchange for the Circle and Downtown Lines.

The collective sale committee (CSC) for the project was designated in August 2021 and has ever since been working to acquire the needed consent from most of owners. “I assume it’s likely we’ll be obtaining the 80% authorization soon,” claims Ken Lim, chairman of the CSC.

For the collective sale, Weston Vision Real estate has been assigned as the single marketing agent, and Tan & Au LLP has been appointed as the legal professional.
