Gabbani is no stranger to the region. He joined Lendlease’s graduate program in 2003 and moved to Singapore in 2011. Gabbani was Lendlease’s CFO for Asia over the past 4 1/2 year and, before that, he was head of capital markets and investment for Asia and Europe. He says, “I’ve lived in Singapore for 10+ years.” “I know the business well.”

Life sciences boom

Lendlease has been active in the life sciences sector due to the ongoing Covid pandemic. Lendlease made an announcement last month that it would begin construction on a large-scale greenfield vaccine facility in the latter part of 2021.

The facility is situated at the 280ha Tuas Biomedical Park. This park was developed by JTC Corp in late 1990s and is a specialised industrial park. There have been major biomedical companies such as Abbot, Genentech and Lonza Biologics. Merck, Novartis, Novartis, and Pfizer are also located there.

Lendlease is responsible for more than 90% construction of Tuas Biomedical Park’s facilities. Lendlease has built the majority of Singapore’s top pharmaceutical facilities. Some of these facilities have also engaged Lendlease to expand their facilities.

Lendlease is interested in investing in the Asia sector and developing other construction projects. Gabbani says, “We see strong demand for life sciences.” It’s an attractive sector.

Partnerships and value-add projects

Sir Run Shaw Shaw Charitable Trust named Lendlease the project manager for Shaw Tower’s redevelopment on Beach Road in October 2013. Built in 1975, the 35-storey office building has a retail podium. The demolition works are underway, and construction of a new tower is expected to begin in the early part of next year.

It will be nearly 200m high and feature views of Marina Bay. The new 35-story tower, designed by Aedas architectural firm, will contain 450,000 square feet of Grade-A office space as well as 30,000 square feet of retail and F&B space at ground level. The new tower will have end-of-trip bicycle storage and sustainable features that comply with the BCA’s Green Mark and International Building Institute’s WELL rating.

The completion of the new Shaw Tower is expected by the end of 2024 to coincide with the completion the neighboring Guoco Midtown integrated community. Gabbani says that the new strong>a href=””>Shaw Tower will be completed by end-2024. It will have pedestrian connections to Guoco Midtown mixed-use developments and South Beach mixed use developments. This will allow easy access to Bugis and Esplanade stations, City Hall, and Promenade MRT Stations.

Lendlease and Certis, a security company, have formed a partnership in order to redevelop Certis’ headquarters at 20 Jalan Amifi. According to a March caveat, the 130,211 square foot site was purchased for $150,000,000 or $1,152 per square foot based on its land area.

According to Lendlease, Certis Cisco Centre will undergo a redevelopment into a “green and sustainable” project with approximately 30,000 sqm (322 917 sqft) of office space.

Mixed-use urban regeneration project that is resilient to change

The Certis Cisco Centre is located within two minutes of Lendlease’s $3.7 billion integrated development Paya Lebar Quarter. Lendlease is a place maker that specializes in urban regeneration projects like the PLQ or Melbourne Quarter in Melbourne.

Despite Covid arrangements and work-from home arrangements, the three office towers located at PLQ with 870,000 square feet of Grade-A office space are 99% leased today. Gabbani says that people have not been afraid to commit to new office space.

After a surge in demand for flexible workspaces since November, the 72,000 square foot Csuites at Lendlease, Lendlease’s flexible workplace model at PLQ was fully occupied by August. Gabbani says that corporate tenants are increasingly seeing it as an advantage.

97% of PLQ Mall’s 340,000 square feet of retail space is leased. Gabbani notes that “central services — pharmacies, supermarkets — continue to show great resilience.” “F&B has also been resilient, despite the many restrictions.”

The 429-unit Park Place Residences in PLQ have been sold. They were completed in 2019, before the pandemic. The first tower was launched in March 2017. Half of the units sold for $1,805 per square foot. Another 149 units were purchased at a median of $2,060 per square foot for the second tower, which was launched in April 2018. According to caveats filed between May and September 2021, units have been sold on the resale marketplace at prices ranging from $1,836 to $2,240 per square foot.

Gabbani says that Lendlease is looking at more ambitious developments, such as master developer projects. The 8.29ha Kampong Bugis property, located near the Kallang Basin in the Kallang Basin was placed on the Reserve List under the 2H2019 Government Land Sales Programme. It could produce 4,000 dwelling units, and 50,000 square meters of gross commercial space, including retail, office, or serviced apartments.

‘Most established market’

Gabbani says Singapore is Lendlease’s most established market. He adds, “We have been in Singapore for 48 years across all three business lines (construction, investment, and development].” “We have probably the highest capital in Singapore.”

A$1.5 billion of the A$2 trillion capital allocated to Asia in the last five years has been invested. The largest share of this investment was made in Singapore. Gabbani says, “We still have A$500m to invest, but we will also recycle our capital once we finish our developments.”

Lendlease is present in three other Asian markets, besides Singapore: China, Malaysia, and Japan.

Two projects have been the main focus in Malaysia, which Lendlease first ventured into 30 years ago. Setia City Mall is one of them. It’s an 80/20 joint venture project between SP Setia (Malaysia) and Lendlease Development. One of its private funds holds 20% of Lendlease’s stake in the mall.

Setia City Mall opened its doors in 2012 with 730,000 square feet of retail space and 235 shops. By 2020, the second phase, which includes 450,000 square feet of retail space and 150 additional stores was expected to be completed. The mall will now have 1.2 million square feet of retail space, making it the largest in Shah Alam.
Gabbani admits that Covid had affected the development and pre-leasing stages of Setia City Mall II. “Stabilisation” has been ongoing since the opening of the second phase in April.

According to URA statistics, retail rents decreased 2.7% in 3Q20201, but prices for retail properties remained flat.

This is the 7th consecutive quarter of retail rents falling, a significant increase from the 0.5% drop in 2Q2021. CBRE’s head of Southeast Asia research Tricia Song notes that retail rents fell 21% in 4Q2019 compared to pre-Covid-19 levels.

Song states that the rents continue to fall because of Covid-19’s evolving situation and decreased footfalls due in part to safe management measures.

On a positive note, however, the retail space vacancy rate decreased to 8.1% from 8.5% in the previous quarter. Song noted that all segments saw a decrease in vacancy rates, with the exception of the Downtown Core, where the rate increased to 11.2% q-oq from 11.9%.

“Retailers remained cautious after multiple government measures that disrupted their business but they were more willing take calculated risks and to commit to leases when the rent level was attractive, and landlord support was assured should it turn difficult due to an extension of or another tightening Covid-related measures,” Angelia Phua at JLL, is the consulting director, research, and consultancy, Singapore.

A slower increase in retail space stock supported the lower vacancy rate. This was compared to an increase of 18,000 sq.m in the previous quarter.

Leonard Tay, Head of Research at Knight Frank Singapore, says that consumers are turning to new activities and new places in Singapore to escape the daily grind of the pandemic. This has driven demand for more retail experiences.

“As such the stock of retail space increased 75,347 sqft [7,000 square m] during the third quarter. However, the amount of occupied space increased by 355,209 sqft [33,000 m] compared to growth of 150,695 sqft[14,000 sq. m] in Q2 2021. He explains that Decathlon and Don Don Donki, two of the largest retailers, have continued to grow despite the pandemic.

After three quarters of declining retail property prices, they remained the same after remaining stable. Shirley Wong, Colliers’ director of research in Singapore, notes that property prices declined marginally by 0.5% qo-q. “Performance was again dragged lower by the Central Area,” Shirley Wong said.

Consultants predict that rents will remain low in 4Q2021 due to the Covid-19 policies. Phua says that the recent extension of safe-management measures for four weeks is expected to temporarily dampen retailers’ confidence and lead to rents succumbing in the short-term.

Consultants believe that there is a possibility of a rebound for the retail sector, given the establishment and expansion of vaccinated travel lanes in Singapore, as well as the transition to Covid-19 which is endemic in Singapore, however. Tay says that if restrictions are removed by November and more vaccinated travelers lanes are established, rental declines could slow down. The sector is poised for a gradual recovery by 2022.

At the end of 3Q2021, the total supply of retail space was 428,000 sq.m. This is compared to 419,000 sq.m. in the previous quarter.

Private residential property prices rose 1.1% in Singapore in 3Q2021, more than the 0.8% increase in the previous quarter and higher than the 0.9% increase reported by the URA on October 1.
The increase in non-landed segments was 0.7% q/o-q, which is lower than the 1.1% rise recorded in the previous quarter. The landed segment experienced a 2.6% increase q-o–q, a significant improvement on the 0.3% decrease in the previous quarter.

3Q2021, there were 3,550 residential new homes, excluding ECs. This is 19.7% more than the 2,966 units that were sold in the previous quarter.

Quarter buyers were affluent to new launches in the Outside Central Region. Pasir Ris 8 (with 425 units) as well as The Watergardens in Canberra (285 units), “benefitted form pent-up upgrader demands and were amongst the most-sold projects for the quarter”, says Tricia Song, CBRE’s head of research, Southeast Asia.

Song attributes the quarter’s 5,362 resale unit transactions to “construction delays” and the “widening price gap between new launches, resale properties, and the wider market.

Prices in the Rest of Central Region, (RCR), saw the highest q-o-q growth among sub-markets. They grew by 2.6%. The Core Central Region (CCR), and the Outside Central Regions (OCR), saw their prices shrink by -0.5%, -0.1%, respectively.

“GLS sites are likely to continue to attract strong interest due to the positive market conditions. Developers may choose to use private enbloc websites in the meantime. Song notes: “Some projects were recently put up for sale by collective tender.”

Our observations show that buyers’ confidence is generally intact, buoyed in part by the economic recovery and the lack of interest rates. PropNex Realty CEO Ismail Gafoor says that home sales might be less for the final quarter of 2021 due to restrictions under the Stabilisation Phase’. This could impact viewings as well as the celebrations during the year end.”
