The double-storey shophouse was torn down and rebuilt by the owner, with Temporary Occupation Permit (TOP) obtained in 2018. However, the original casement windows were restored. The new shophouse also features high ceiling, timber beams and timber flooring on the upper level. The shophouse sits on a freehold site of 2,678 sq ft and has a built-up area of 4,800 sq ft. Given the double frontage and access on both sides of the road, the first level of the shophouse is ideal for F&B operations. In fact, the first level of the shophouse has been approved for F&B use, says PropNex’s Tan. The property is located within walking distance – just 235m away – from the Jalan Besar MRT station.

However, the shophouse has a smaller footprint of just 1,700 sq ft.

One street away is Dickson and Upper Dickson Road. In December, a 999-year leasehold, shophouse on Dickson Road sitting on a 1,313 sq ft site, was sold for $3.648 million in December. Meanwhile, a 999-year leasehold shophouse sitting on an even smaller site of 635 sq ft on Upper Dickson Road, fetched $2.02 million. The indicative price for 60 Upper Weld Road is $7.5 million, which is in line with its valuation, notes PropNex’s Tan. The corner shophouse is on the market for sale by expressions of interest from Jan 28, and will close on Feb 28, 2020.
