The supply has been further limited by the new government policy that restricts strata subdivisions of commercial assets located in central regions.
Ismail Gafoor, executive chairman and CEO of PropNex agrees, adding that empty full-floor plates in Grade-A offices located in the CBD are difficult to find, especially in the sought-after Raffles Place area. “We have witnessed a huge interest from families offices as well as tech companies that are shifting office spaces in Singapore and are looking for empty spaces for their personal usage and with Raffles Place being their top priority,” he observes.
