For Sale by Tender – House of Tan Yeok Nee

Jones Lang LaSalle appointed as sole marketing agent to run tender process

SINGAPORE, 27 May 2013 – Jones Lang LaSalle Property Consultants Pte Ltd as the sole marketing agent, is pleased to offer The House of Tan Yeok Nee, located at the corner of Penang Road and Clemenceau Avenue for sale via a tender process.
The offering provides an opportunity for owner-occupiers and investors to acquire a freehold commercial building located between Singapore’s Premier Shopping District and Central Business District.
The House of Tan Yeok Nee is located on a prominent corner within minutes’ walk to Dhoby Ghaut MRT Station along the North-East Line and has direct access to the Central Expressway (CTE). The building was gazetted a National Monument by the Preservations of Monument Board in 1974 and won special commendation from the Paris-based FIABCI at the Prix d'Excellence in 2002. Subject to approval from relevant authorities, there is potential for alternative uses including a flagship office building, specialist retail, hospitality or F&B usage.
Anthony Barr, National Director, Investments comments “This is a rare opportunity to acquire an asset for commercial use in a prime location in the Orchard Road precinct.  House of Tan Yeok Nee is a unique asset that offers owner occupiers or investors the ability to leverage off the building’s prominence and historical significance. Potential to increase existing usable space through the reconfiguration of void areas and use of courtyard space could provide further amenity to owners of the building..”
The tender exercise will close at 3pm on Friday, 5th July 2013.
