Filed under: General,Land Sale — Propertymarketupdates @ 1:47 am

AMID a quiet property market, NTUC Income is selling a small commercial property in Beach Road that could fetch around $24 million to $26 million.

Beach Junction, at 67 Beach Road, is a 999-year leasehold building opposite Shaw Towers. It sits at the junction of Beach Road and Middle Road.

The six-storey development has a net lettable area of about 19,000 sq ft and is fully tenanted.

More than half of the leases expire this year, which means there is potential for near-term rental appreciation, according to marketing agent CB Richard Ellis.

‘This is also a unique opportunity for owner-occupiers looking for their own building in a very accessible location,’ it said.

The property is served by City Hall and Bugis MRT stations. Accessibility will be enhanced by the completion of Esplanade station on the Circle Line by 2010.

New investors or owner-occupiers will also be able to give the building a new name.

An industry source told BT that the site is worth about $1,300-$1,400 psf.

Besides being close to the huge, eco-friendly South Beach mixed project by a City Developments-led consortium, Beach Junction is expected to benefit from plans for the nearby Ophir Road/Rochor Road corridor, which will be transformed into a commercial node with offices, hotels and supporting uses.

Expression of interest for Beach Junction closes at 3pm on June 5.
