Joo Chiat shophouses on the block
Five connected Joo Chiat shophouses are up for sale with realtors expecting bids of up to $14 million for the conservation properties.
The shophouses are currently owned by a private investment company and are being offered for sale by Chestertons via expressions of interest. They are located in the heart of the Joo Chiat Conservation Area and occupy a site of about 7500 sqft.
Chestertons MD Donald Han says the company is soliciting bids on a freehold and 99-year lease basis from prospective investors.
“Yield-driven investors may find the 99-year leasehold tenure more palatable.”
Han says the Joo Chiat area has recently witnessed a sales upturn, with more than 10 transactions since April.
“Investors are looking for catalysts before deciding where and when to put their money. The Paya Lebar sub-regional centre is a compelling catalyst, where we have seen the completion and opening of OneKM Mall and Paya Lebar Square.”
