The first property for sale is a HDB shop fronting the main road of Jalan Bukit Merah, comprising two adjoining shops with living quarters.
The combined retail space on the ground floor is approximately 1,507 sq ft, while the living quarters on the second storey has a similar floor space of approximately 1,507 sq ft.
The retail space is currently tenanted as a childcare centre, with a guide price of $3 million to $3.2 million.
The other HDB shop at Telok Blangah Drive comprises two adjoining shops with living quarters and is located near Telok Blangah MRT station.
It has a total floor area of approximately 3,229 sq ft, comprising a combined shop space of 1,518 sq ft on the ground floor and living quarters of 1,711 sq ft on the second storey.
The shop space was previously occupied as a financial institution and still has a bank vault within the premises. The guide price for the property is $3 million to $3.1 million.
The only private shophouse for sale is a 3-storey freehold shop at Havelock Road, located along a stretch of restaurants which includes a well-known Teochew porridge stall. Ample parking space is available along the roadside, as well as at the nearby Beo Crescent multi-storey carpark.
The shophouses have a land area of 1,574 sq ft and gross floor area of approximately 3,207 sq ft, and comes with a guide price of $4.6 million to $4.8 million.
The fourth property, a strata shop at Parklane Shopping Mall, is located along Selegie Road, following the stretch where popular hangouts The Cathay, POMO and the School of The Arts (SOTA) are situated.
Within the immediate surrounding are also various commercial buildings and offices, with Bencoolen MRT station on the Downtown Line located approximately 260 metres away.
The 2,002 sq ft shop is currently tenanted to fast food chain McDonald’s, and has a guide price of $4.5 million to $4.6 million.
Mary Sai, Executive Director, Investment and Capital Markets, Knight Frank Singapore, comments, “As all four shops are situated in good locations with high visibility, they will appeal to investors looking for recurring income, as well as to owners for their own occupation.” She also added that despite challenges faced by the retail market from e-commerce and slower consumer spending, well-managed shops in better locations can still bear the brunt of competition from smaller shops in the neighbourhood.
The public tender and EOI for the retail shops will close at 3 pm on 19 February 2019.
