The other property is at 8 Tuas South St 6 and is on sale for an indicative price of $6 million, which translates to approximately $183 psf based on its current total GFA of 32,663 sq ft.
The property is a five-storey detached factory building completed in 2017. It comprises a warehouse with ancillary office space, 11 parking lots and a cargo lift. Tan says that the high ceiling height of the property makes it suitable as a warehouse space. Additionally, the building is newly completed, so buyers can move in almost immediately.
The land is zoned under Business 2 with a maximum allowable plot ratio of 1.0. With a leasehold tenure of 22 years commencing Oct 1, 2013, the property has a remaining land tenure of about 13 years. Situated on JTC land, the annual land rent has been waived.

Both properties are in close proximity to the future Tuas Mega Port, which will be progressively launched from 2021. The properties will also potentially be served by the Tuas South MRT Station on the East-West Line, if an extension beyond Tuas Link MRT Station is approved. They are also within a 15-minute drive to the Tuas checkpoint.
The EOI for both industrial properties will close at 3pm on July 16.
