The freehold building sits on a 2,168 sq ft site and has a floor area of about 7,000 sq ft. The land is zoned “residential with commercial on the ground floor”, and has approval to operate a backpacker hostel. A hospitality operator holds the master lease for the whole building, and has sublet the ground floor to a restaurant which operates on the ground floor.
"We have received overwhelming response [for freehold shophouses] in popular city fringe locations like Kampong Bahru and Tiong Bahru, even before some of the 'circuit breaker' measures start to ease after June 1. These freehold shophouses have a strong appeal to institutional investors and construction firms seeking to lease out to foreign students or workers in Singapore," says Chin.
