The four commercial units are currently leased: two adjacent units with a total strata area of 2,605 sq ft, have been leased to Food Panda at $15,630 per month, with the lease expiring on April 6, 2023. The remaining two units with total strata area of 2,626 sq ft, have been leased to Chill@269 bistro-bar at $20,408 per month, with the lease expiring on December 31, 2022.

Of the four commercial units, two have been sold. Hence, 12 out of a total of 21 strata units (57%) at 265 Outram Road have sold to date.

Last October, the conservation building at 265 Outram Road was offered for sale at $50 million, which worked out to $2,733 psf based on the gross floor area of 18,295 sq ft. It was marketed by Colliers International then. The expression of interest ended on Nov 19, 2021, and the owner, Chiu Teng Group, has since decided to launch the units for sale individually.
The building is located within the Tiong Bahru Secondary Settlement conservation area and occupies a freehold area of 6,125 sq ft. It is zoned for residential use with commercial usage at the first storey.
