Tanjong Pagar shophouse comes to market
The 91 Tanjong Pagar Road property is located within the bustling Tanjong Pagar enclave and rises three storeys with attic. Sitting on a circa 1,297 square feet (120.5 square metres) site, the estimated total built up area is circa 3,842 sqft (357 sqm).
The property stands out prominently amongst the neighbouring properties with an unblocked frontage next to a busy T-junction.
The interior has been beautifully designed and offers a modern refuge that contrasts yet pairs well with the building’s ornamental exterior.
During the refurbishment, the power supply was also upgraded to support F&B operations on the ground floor. Each floor has a column-free, regular, highly efficient layout with generous ceiling height and an en-suite washroom.
The shophouses are also brightly lit as the French windows at the front allow natural light to filter through.
It boasts strong tenant profiles, with a renowned wedding jewellery store occupying the ground floor and the upper floor being occupied by an art and design consultancy firm.
Zoned “Commercial” within the Tanjong Pagar historic conservation area, the property is centrally located and easily accessible with a 2-minute walk from Tanjong Pagar MRT and a 5-minute walk to Maxwell MRT.
The shophouse has a price guide of $14.6 million, which translates to circa $3,800 per square foot on the floor area. The property is listed with Savills Singapore.
