Given that the two units occupy the entire 4th floor, potential purchasers have the flexibility of configuring the units for optimum usage to accommodate their business operations.

Mr Clemence Lee, Senior Director of Capital Markets, Singapore at CBRE said, “This is a rare opportunity for an investor or owner-occupier to acquire two newly renovated freehold F&B units located in the heart of the Central Business District. The large Outdoor Refreshment Area (ORA) and private roof garden allow the eventual F&B operator to offer unique F&B concepts such as farm-to-table experiential dining within the city. Alternatively, the successful buyer can also consider other uses for the space such as childcare centre, retail, showroom, or office, subject to approval from the relevant authorities.”

Mr Low Choon Sin, Managing Partner of SRI Capital Market added, “An entire floor of strata F&B retail space is rarely available, especially within the Central Business District. As part of URA’s CBD Rejuvenation Plan, the traditional business district will transform to accommodate a greater extent of residential uses. Investors as well as F&B occupiers will set to benefit from the CBD revitalization with a wider crowd of both residents and office workers. Furthermore, the properties’ private lift access will provide patrons with a sense exclusivity. Not to mention, the rooftop garden also provides a perfect setting for alfresco dining.”

Both locals, foreigners and companies are eligible to purchase the Oxley Tower F&B units, which is zoned as “Commercial” use. There will be no Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty or Seller’s Stamp Duty imposed on the purchase.

Oxley Tower enjoys an array of amenities including Amoy Street Food Centre and eateries nestled in eclectic shophouses within the Tanjong Pagar precinct. Islandwide connectivity is available via major trunk roads and the Marina Coastal Expressway (MCE), as well as the nearby Tanjong Pagar MRT station and the upcoming Shenton Way MRT Station slated to be completed in 2022. Newly completed commercial developments such as 79 Robinson Road and Afro Asia i-Mark will further enhance the office catchment within the vicinity of Oxley Tower.

You can get a commercial property loan:

  • As an individual
  • Or as a Company

For buying under company name, generally it will be under Private limited company. There are 2 distinctions:

  • Buying for business own use; or
  • Buying under investment holding company

The companies will need to have financial statements and proof of profitability to qualify for a bank loan.

For buying under investment holding company, directors or majority shareholders will need to be assessed for Total Debt Servicing Ratio (TDSR). This is where it gets complicated as many business people tend to hold on to multiple properties. Hence the need for debt restructuring becomes important. iCompareLoan mortgage consultants can assist to assess your overall debt situation and devise ways to make suggestions for improvements.
