Subject to the termination of existing leases at the property, the property will be sold with vacant possession on an “as is, where is” basis, offering investors different options to maximise its potential.
“We are very familiar with this opportunity, as we have been involved in negotiating with a few potential occupiers for the proposed space on plan. Singapore’s property market continues to attract investors internationally and domestically, and we are excited to engage with investors in this perfectly timed launch to ride on the recovery of the hospitality market, as international borders start to reopen due to the rising vaccination rates globally.”
Daniel Ding, Head of Capital Markets, Knight Frank Singapore, added: “This is a rare and attractive investment proposition for investors looking for a brand-new freehold trophy asset located in prime District 9. The opportunity may be suitable for hospitality operators who seek a flagship hospitality asset, or investors looking to acquire a generational asset.”
