The space consists of four amalgamated offices. “It offers views of the city and has a rectangular layout, with a general office space, meeting rooms, pantry and separate men and ladies toilets,” says Joy Tan, head of auction at Edmund Tie.

“Investors looking for amalgamated commercial units within the CBD, especially larger corporations who prefer to occupy the whole level, will be attracted to the space,” says Tan.
“The next buyer will also be able to get immediate rental income,” she adds. The four amalgamated units are currently being occupied by an architectural firm. The property will be sold with tenancy and on an as-is-where-is basis.
