79 Robinson Road Sees Solid Office Occupancy
SINGAPORE – 79 Robinson Road, a Grade A office building in the city-state’s central business district (CBD), officially opened on Friday and has recorded robust occupancy, reported The Business Times on Friday morning (14 January, SGT).
To date, the commercial development in Tanjong Pagar has attained a strong committed occupancy of nearly 93 percent.
“We are heartened by the strong leasing interest in 79 Robinson Road, as well as in the newly completed CapitaSpring, which reflects CapitaLand’s ability to meet evolving workspace needs amidst robust demand for quality workspace in prime CBD locations,” said Chris Chong, CEO for retail and workspace for Singapore and Malaysia at CapitaLand Investment.
“We are delighted that our esteemed tenants have chosen 79 Robinson Road as their new address, attracted by the building’s excellent connectivity, premium building specifications, sustainable features and core-flex offerings that meet their evolving workspace needs and increasing focus on wellness and community,” he added.
Tenants at 79 Robinson Road include financial services and insurance provider Allianz and Equinix, the world’s biggest digital infrastructure company.
Boston Consulting Group has also agreed to occupy 79 Robinson Road’s Sky Village on Level 27 and 28. Apart from offering panoramic views of the sea, that particular workspace is touted as the first double-volume office space curated for a single tenant in Singapore.
Interestingly, William Grant & Sons has opened The Distillers Library, an invite-only private suite that is expected to pique the interest of whiskey connoisseurs, as it offers a bespoke guided experience through the luxury distiller’s prized collections.
Furthermore, 79 Robinson Road offers flexible office space under the Bridge+ brand. Through the CapitaStar@Work app, existing occupants in the office building can easily scale up operations by reserving workspaces to accommodate a growing headcount, or tweak their lease terms based on their operational requirements.
