Upon the close of the EOI, we received a few offers which fell short of the owner’s expectation. The residence was subsequently withdrawn from the industry.
With the improving office sector in Singapore, we are seeing more investors shift their focus back to the industrial sector. We feel that it is timely to put the property into the industry again to offer buyers another chance to reconsider this exceptional opportunity. With the pricing lowered to between $46 to $49 million, we expect strong interest from both investors and owner occupiers who are looking to acquire a centrally-located freehold industrial developing in a bustling place undergoing rejuvenation and gentrification.”
