SINGAPORE (EDGEPROP) - A 4,090 sq ft basement retail unit at The Adelphi is on the market for $9.5 million. The guide price translates to $2,322 psf on the strata area. According to ERA Realty, the marketing agent handling the transaction, the unit will be sold in a bank sale by tender, and the closing date is Oct 19.
The Adelphi is a 999-year leasehold mixed-use property at 1 Coleman Street in District 6. The 10-storey development consists of a five-storey retail podium, a six-storey office block and four basement carpark floors.
The basement retail unit could be utilised for F&B or a fitness or tuition centre. It is conveniently located close to the escalators that serve that floor. The unit was previously marketed by CBRE in April. The selling price was not disclosed, but CBRE referenced past transactions of basement units — ranging from $2,685 psf to $3,573 psf — as a guide price. It remained unsold after the close of expression of interest exercise on May 18.

The ERA sales listing states that the unit was previously used as a KTV lounge but that business has since closed. KTV lounge operators have been especially hard hit by the pandemic. There was also scrutiny over these businesses, whose operations were tightened in July after several venues emerged as Covid-19 infection clusters.
There have been four resale transactions at The Adelphi so far this year. On March 1, a 2,626 sq ft office unit on the ninth floor was sold for $7.34 million ($2,795 psf). Meanwhile, other resale transactions were shop units on the third floor. On May 11, a 441 sq ft unit fetched $1.4 million ($3,172 psf). On July 5, a 463 sq ft unit was sold for $1.48 million ($3,198 psf), while a 753 sq ft unit was sold for $2.45 million ($3,252 psf) on July 8.
