CPF Building along Robinson Road up for sale by public tender

The landmark CPF Building at 79 Robinson Road has been put up for sale by public tender, after the Central Provident Fund (CPF) Board signed a long-term lease to rent space at Novena Square Towers A and B for the Board’s operations.

Its marketing agent CBRE said the relocation of CPF offices in the building will “free up prime office space in the Central Business District for higher-value uses”.

The building, which was completed in the 1970s, sits on a regularly-shaped site with an area of about 47,056 sq ft. The current Net Lettable Area of the building is approximately 324,000 sq ft. It also has frontage of 120m along Robinson Road.

It could be redeveloped into a mixed use development with office, retail and serviced apartments or a hotel, subject to approval from authorities, CBRE said.

The tenure of CPF Building is 99 years from 1968 and the tender closes on Oct 28.

The CPF Board will be moving to Novena Square Towers from the last quarter of this year. The Board’s Service Centre at Robinson Road will continue to operate until further notice.

URA launches tender for commercial site at Robinson Road/Cecil Street

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on Tuesday launched the tender for a commercial site at Robinson Road and Cecil Street.

The land parcel, located within walking distance to Tanjong Pagar MRT Station, occupies a prime location in the heart of the Central Business District.

The 0.29 hectare site, which can generate about 32,000 square metres of gross floor area, is poised to be developed into a good-quality office building.

The proposed commercial development up to 35 storeys in height will also enjoy excellent visibility.

Zoned for commercial development, the site will have at least 80 per cent of the total gross floor area allocated for office use.

The remaining floor area can be developed into additional office space, or for other uses including retail, as well as food and beverage uses.

The tender for the site will close at noon on September 20.
