Mall Rental Rates Rebound Post COVID-19

May 29, 2022

We have seen retailers cutting losses and shutting down stores as the rental rates in malls and various commercial places rebound to higher rates than pre-COVID.

Pushed Out After 30 Years In Business

From TODAY’s article, we learn about small eatery owner Anthony Lim deciding to call it quits after 30 years of running his store after his landlord wanted to increase his monthly rent from S$3,000 to S$9,500

The challenge for Anthony was that he was leasing from a private landlord in Lucky Plaza as Lucky Plaza is a strata-titled development. 

10% To 30% Increase In Rental

Relocation and renegotiations are the norms for the past few months in the industry as malls see a rebound of customers heading back into the malls to bring about an end to the deserted malls.

From our experience in the market, we believe that the heartland malls will be staying ahead of the curve for the time being while locations in town may not rebound until tourists are back in droves. 

Increased Demand In Mall Spaces

With rent ‘expected to climb’ and owners looking to move, we are busier than ever, especially with an increase in queries from new startups, the demand for kiosks has been extremely high due to a lower entry quantum in terms of investment.
