Commercial Shophouses - A golden opportunity to both local and foreign investors. According to joint exclusive marketing agents Vanz Han, Tommy Ng and Hector Ding, commercial shophouse properties are also mostly located in prime areas of Singapore, hence attracting a steady footfall for tenants and stable rental income for landlords.
According to Vanz, the demand for shophouses has been very strong, despite the pandemic. Vanz says: “We noticed an increase of financial institutions and ultra-high-net-worth buyers investing in this particular property segment. One of the reasons is due to the growing inflow of overseas funds into Singapore. We have a track record of billions dollar worth of property transactions, and for the past 6 months we have transacted over $200 million worth of commercial shophouses.”
Tommy elaborated that due to the historic nature of these properties, there is an extremely limited supply in the market. “There are only about 6,750 shophouse units in Singapore, with only about 60% located in prime areas. The supply is capped but the demand keeps growing. Investors who are building owners can take advantage of the flexibility to enhance the property by reconfiguration and change of usage (subjected to URA conservation guidelines and approval), giving them the possibility to command higher rentals.” says Tommy.
“Due to recent cooling measures in the residential segment, many investors are shifting into investing in commercial properties, especially commercial-zoned shophouses,” says Hector, adding that these shophouse properties are popular also because they are excluded from additional buyer’s stamp duty (ABSD) and seller stamp duty (SSD).
Currently, the trio have four unique opportunities to launch, via express of interest (EOI), that come with existing tenancies.
34, 35 & 36 Bussorah Street
Bussorah Street is located within the famed Kampong Glam area near to Bugis which is a hot favourite tourism spot.

36 Circular Road
Circular Road is one of Singapore’s prime versatile shophouse districts, located within close proximity of Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, Robertson Quay and the Singapore River belt. In the day, the area is filled with white-collar workers thanks to nearby office buildings, and at night partygoers fill the streets as they hit the surrounding bars and clubs.
This unique 3.5-storey shophouse unit has a leasehold of 999 years, with the first floor approved for restaurant use and the upper floors typically rented out for office, retail or fitness center use. The land area is 1,085 sq ft, while the gross floor area of the property spans over 3,572 sq ft.
