The Verge found a new buyer at S$190m

In Aug 2016, PROPERTY developer Lum Chang Holdings has entered into a term sheet to acquire a vehicle that owns eight-level (six storeys and two basement levels) The Verge mall in Serangoon Road.

The vehicle, Corwin Holding, also owns another eight-storey building called Chill @The Verge. Lum Chang said that The Verge has a total gross floor area of 238,527 square feet and is encumbered. It did not disclose an acquisition sum, but said that it will start due diligence and negotiations with the sellers of the vehicle. It said that it aimed to agree on the terms for the proposed deal within an exclusivity period of four weeks or another mutually set date.

The sellers of Corwin Holding are HICOM Megah Sdn Bhd, Mohamed Mustafa and Samsuddin Co Pte Ltd and BI Distributors Pte Ltd.

In September, the joint venture between Singapore- listed Lum Chang Holdings and a closed-end fund of LaSalle Investment Management Asia on Thursday signed a conditional share sale agreement to go ahead with the acquisition of The Verge, a struggling mall in Little India.

Kampong Glam: A New Living Heritage

Kampong Glam is known as a cultural and historical zone. The area covers from Beach Road and Crawford Street (North Bridge Road) to Rochor and Selegie. It is also well known for its conservation area, especially for the conservation shophouses which are mostly used for commercial purposes.

Besides commercial, residential areas are also plentiful in the district. It has been observed that Kampong Glam’s investment outlook for the mid to long term will be boosted by plans to develop Beach Road as well as the Ophir-Rochor area into a district of mixed-use projects.
