A strata office portfolio, comprising a three-storey podium block and three office floors in the GB Building on Cecil Street, is up for sale.

Each floor comprises a single strata title that can be partitioned into smaller units. The portfolio consists of five strata-titled units with areas ranging from 3,294 sq ft to 13,067 sq ft, for a combined total of 39,590 sq ft. They also command 27.3% of the Management Corporation Strata Title (MCST) share value.
The sale is not subject to Additional Buyer’s Stamp Duty and Seller’s Stamp Duty, and are eligible for purchase by local and foreign buyers.
Recent strata office transactions at SBF Centre, located next to GB Building, were in the range of $2,800 to $3,053 psf, says Sammi Lim, director of capital markets at CBRE. “Podium floors are rarely available for sale, and the last such transaction in the CBD was at Prudential Tower in 2017, which was sold at about $3,316 psf,” she adds.
The expression of interest will close on September 5.
