Swee Shou Fern, executive director of investment advisory at Edmund Tie & Company - the building's marketing agent, said that it "expects keen interest from companies seeking to own a corporate office with a strong presence in the city centre" and "investors looking to invest in a prime commercial asset with outstanding location attributes".

"Given its central location, the property is also ideal as a private members’ club or an embassy, subject to authorities’ approval," she added.

The 99-year leasehold development sits on 52,471 sq ft of land. That works out to a land rate of about S$1,860 per sq ft per plot ratio inclusive of development charge and differential premium payable.
