Share

  • Agreed property value of S$550 million translates to approximately S$2,900 per square foot of net lettable area.
  • Divestment allows Cuscaden Peak Investments Pte Ltd ("Cuscaden") and its JV partner to realise the value of The Seletar Mall ("TSM") as part of their active capital recycling strategy to enhance shareholder returns.

SINGAPORE, March 7, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Cuscaden and its JV partner are pleased to announce the successful completion of the sale of TSM to an unrelated 3rd party based on an agreed property value of S$550 million which translates to approximately S$2,900 per square foot of net lettable area. This was negotiated on an arms-length, willing-buyer and willing-seller basis between the purchaser and vendors.

Built in 2014, TSM is a well-established and fully-tenanted suburban mall primarily serving the growing residential communities in North-Eastern Singapore. It provides a diverse and comprehensive mix of carefully curated retail amenities spread across six levels of approximately 190,000 square feet of net lettable area. Directly connected to TSM, the Fernvale Light Rail Transit provides a seamless connection to Sengkang MRT Station on the North-East Line and Sengkang Bus Interchange.

Mr Chua Chi Boon, Executive Vice President, Portfolio Management at Cuscaden, said, "The suburban retail property market in Singapore has been a key beneficiary of a robust post-COVID rebound, as strong demand from both tenants and shoppers underpins healthy positive rent reversions for well-located malls with attractive retail offerings like TSM. 

As part of our active capital recycling strategy to enhance shareholder returns, we embarked on a sale of this property, together with our long-term capital partner, to realise the value created. Since the inception of TSM’s operations in 2014, our in-house property management team has been instrumental in realising the mall’s potential by effectively providing a comprehensive suite of services including marketing, leasing, finance and facilities management.

The timing of this divestment is opportune, drawing strong interest from prominent local and international real estate players attracted to the growth and resilience of Singapore’s suburban retail assets. There continues to be high demand for the limited pool of good quality properties within this segment, where the outlook remains positive."

TSM is an integral part of a thriving heartland community and will continue to be a retail destination for the residents in the Northeast.
