CBRE's Senior Executive for Capital Markets Clemence Lee says shophouses in non-conservation areas will give buyers more flexibility in redevelopment options than shophouses within preservation ranges. We expect engineers and temporary workers to be keenly interested in finding redevelopment opportunities within the Kallang Arranging Locale, as they are not often made available. Private financial specialists will be requested by the subject property.

The buyer can also anticipate the property's steady capital appreciation over the medium-term. This could be due to URA's vision of converting Kallang Stream zones into a bustling center of activity, as well the properties' proximity to Kallang Whampoa and Bidadari, which will suit 13,000 modern private units by the year 2023," Mr Lee said. The properties are located less than ten minutes from the Central Trade Area. They enjoy a consistent network to the rest the island via major expressways, blood vessel streets, and are easily accessible by car.

The area's various condominiums such as The Poiz Homes and The Setting Homes and Shoppes will provide a ready catchment.
