TT International's Big Box in Jurong East put up for sale by receivers

 

 

THE receivers and managers for the owner of Big Box have put the warehouse retail mall put up for sale.

 

The landmark eight-storey building in Jurong East Regional Centre is owned by Big Box Pte Ltd (BBPL), a 51-per cent subsidiary of struggling mainboard-listed consumer electronics retailer TT International.

 

Cushman & Wakefield, exclusive marketing agent for the sale, noted that the warehouse retail scheme (WRS) under which Big Box operated has expired.

 

Said Shaun Poh, its executive director of capital markets: “With a gross floor area (GFA) of over 1.4 million square feet, Big Box is probably the largest ramp-up warehouse asset to be offered for sale in recent years.

 

"This is a compelling opportunity for logistics players, e-commerce fulfilment & warehousing companies as well as other third-party facilities service providers to acquire a rarely available warehouse facility within the prime Jurong Gateway locale.”

 

The sale will be be conducted via an expression of interest which will close on June 14 at 3pm.

 

The property, which has a site area of 56,385.7 square metres or about 606,639 sq ft and an existing plot ratio of 2.31, has a balance of 19 years on its 30-year lease tenure.

Bloody big yet there isn't anything to see or shop, hardly comes as a surprise. Maybe Ikea should consider moving in.

 

Well at least the burger place was good while it lasted........

Don't stay in the west, never heard of it.

With Dr M almost surely to pull the plug on the HSR project, almost safe to say RIP to Jurong as second CBD.

  • File photo of the Food Junction outlet at Bugis in Singapore and a BreadTalk outlet. (Photo: Food Junction website and Facebook@BreadTalk) SINGAPORE: BreadTalk Group on Monday (Sep 2) announced its intention to acquire food court operator Food Junction Management (FJM) for S$80 million through subsidiary Topwin Investment Holding. In a filing to the Singapore Exchange, the food and beverage group said its wholly owned subsidiary Topwin had entered into a sale and purchase agreement on Aug 30 for the proposed acquisition of FJM from Food Junction Holdings. The total consideration of S$80 million will be paid in cash and will be funded through BreadTalk Group's internal resources - including available cash on hand - and debt facilities, according to the filing. The amount could be subject to further adjustments to take into account actual cash, debt and working capital of FJM as at completion of the acquisition. The figure was arrived at after "arms’ length negotiations", said BreadTalk Group in its filing.  It took into consideration factors such as the quality of the assets being acquired and the strategic value of FJM’s existing network of food courts and outlets to BreadTalk Group, as well as its financials, earnings quality and future potential. FJM and its wholly owned subsidiaries Food Junction Singapore and T&W Food Junction operate food courts and food and beverage outlets in Singapore and Malaysia. They collectively operate a network of 12 food courts in Singapore and three in Malaysia, with another one scheduled to open in Johor Bahru next year. BreadTalk Group operates food courts under the Food Republic and Food Opera brands across Singapore, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, Cambodia and Thailand. As at Jun 30 this year, BreadTalk Group operates 14 food courts in Singapore and two in Malaysia.
