CBRE senior manager of capital markets Angela Lim said: "Investors are well cognisant of the premium that Nassim Road commands in the GCB market in Singapore. In fact, the GCBs at Nassim Road continue to set new benchmarks, evidenced by the two recent GCB transactions in the immediate vicinity."

In July, a GCB at 33 Nassim Road was sold for S$230 million or S$2,721 psf by Wing Tai chairman Cheng Wai Keung and his wife, Helen, Meanwhile, a 50 Cluny Road was sold for S$45 million or S$2,980 psf.

"This is an exceptional opportunity to acquire a massive GCB land plot within the esteemed Nassim Road area, as such ownerships are typically tightly held," Ms Lim added.
