The sale of Food Empire Building shows that freehold industrial assets continue to be highly sought after given their limited supply, says Shaun Poh, executive director of capital markets at Cushman & Wakefield.
In a June 9 filing to the Singapore Exchange (SGX), Lian Beng Group states the acquisition is in line with its core business activities in property investments. “The group views the proposed Acquisition as a good opportunity to participate in a strategic investment of the property, where the group can derive rental returns which will be added to the earnings of the group,” the announcement reads.
