The tender for the sale of Raffles Education Square is going to seal on Aug 1.

” The property is strategically located in a place with fantastic prospective for a boost in property market value from the revitalisation of the Singapore River precinct,” says Chia Mein Mein, head of resources markets (land plus cumulative sale), Knight Frank Singapore.

According to Knight Frank, Raffles Education Square might possibly be redeveloped with the neighbouring The Riverside Piazza, a mixed-use strata commercial as well as household property development at 11 Keng Cheow Street. The agency claims that the owners of Riverside Piazza are securing the essential 80% approval to launch a collective sale.

The initial framework was built in 1996 as well as refurbished in 2013 to house the corporate offices along with university of Raffles Education. The facility has actually been unused since the school and office were abandoned, paving the way for the divestiture of the property, adds Knight Frank.

She adds: “This is an uncommon opportunity to acquire a commercial residential property that is readied to gain from the significant urban renewal process that will improve the location right into a new and also vibrant way of living hub”.

” This opportunity may permit the combined area to enjoy an uplift in gross floor area to capitalise on the restoration efforts for the area under the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) Strategic Development Incentive (SDI) plan, subject to the authorities’ approval,” claims Chia.
