A pair of shophouses at 355/357 Jalan Besar are on the market for $14.3 million via an expression of interest exercise, announced marketing agent CBRE. This translates into $2,344 psf based on the gross floor area.
The two-storey properties sit on a 3,066 sq ft lot with a freehold tenure, and the site is zoned for commercial use with a plot ratio of 3.0. They are located within the Jalan Besar Secondary Conservation Area. The shophouses have a total gross floor area (GFA) of 6,100 sq ft, but conservation guidelines permit new rear extensions up to a building height of six storeys, subject to approvals. Thus, the potential GFA of the redevelopment could increase to 9,198 sq ft.
