Such quality Assets are often tightly held by owners which increases their demand. Most of the assets that are available for sale in this area, such as CT Hub and CT Hub 2, are strata titled. We expect a good response to this tender in light of increasing demand from industrialists who prefer central locations that are closer to clients. The property’s location in the Kallang iPark is also positive as the Jurong Town Corporation has plans for a dynamic green industrial park in an urban setting.”

He adds, “The capacity for this asset to be refurbished and potentially increase an additional 10,472 sq ft of gross floor area to maximise the plot ratio, presents an excellent opportunity for SMEs/Corporates looking to gain entry to the Kallang iPark and expand their business or headquarters in an area with excellent infrastructure, easy accessibility and the potential for increasing workforce from the surrounding area.”
