Mr Galven Tan, Deputy Managing Director, Investment Sales and Capital Markets, Savills Singapore, said: “This is a valued opportunity for purchasers to acquire a sizeable commercial space in an exciting and fast-growing precinct. Pedestrian traffic flow is expected to further increase in 2022 with the completion of 1,399 units Parc Esta, bringing additional demand for retail businesses in Hexacube.”

Galven added “The stretch of Changi Road is an established F&B enclave, with other F&B outlets from the food courts, coffeeshops and restaurants that have been there for decades.”

Mr Michael Tay, Head of Capital Markets at CBRE Singapore, said: “Retailers have been adapting to the new normal, and getting creative in their offerings and choice of location. In particular, retail space located in the sub-urban and city-fringe areas such as Hexacube’s, have been highly sought after and have shown resilience – even through this challenging time – due to the domestic market they cater to.”

Michael continued: “At S$3,253 per sq ft, the units are considered affordable given its freehold tenure and strategic location at the city fringe. What’s more, there is a ready catchment of the office crowd within Hexacube, residential population in the vicinity and students from the schools nearby. The current tenancies at select units will appeal to investors who are seeking an income-producing asset at a palatable quantum. We are optimistic that the flexibility in being able to acquire the units individually or collectively, depending on interested buyers’ business needs, will be a draw as well.”
