SINGAPORE, 30th September 2019 – JLL, as the exclusive marketing agent, is proud to present for sale 39 & 40 Duxton Road - a pair of two-storey conservation shophouses nestled in the exclusive Duxton Hill enclave of Tanjong Pagar.

Tanjong Pagar is one of Singapore’s trendiest locales, characterised by its myriad of popular F&B, exclusive retail and dynamic lifestyle offerings. Hailed as a food haven, Tanjong Pagar is home to several highly acclaimed F&B concepts, including four Michelin Star Restaurants and 11 Michelin Bib Gourmand recommended eateries. Michelin Star restaurants in the area include Meta, Rhubarb, Ma Cuisine and Burnt Ends.

As part of the URA’s urban renewal efforts, the area is currently undergoing robust growth and rejuvenation. New developments including Tanjong Pagar Centre, the new Maxwell Chambers and Frasers Tower, will bring growth to the area and further cement the locale as a key commercial and lifestyle hub.

Furthermore, the recent opening of the six star boutique hotel, Six Senses Duxton, which is located just opposite the subject property has channelled further buzz to the area.

With 39 & 40 Duxton Road’s excellent location and attributes, such as its rare nightclub approval, stable rental income and efficient layouts, we expect to receive good interest from both investors and end-users.”
