RE: CapitaLand Commercial Trust (formely: CapitaCommercial Trust)
I am pretty uncomfortable with the ever declining capitalization and discount rates employed by CCT and its valuers. from the table attached, one can see the CAP rate and discount rate used at present is lower than that of 2014. Assuming if rental remains constant, it means property values will just be boosted up.

No doubt Wilkie Edge was sold at such a high valuation to Lian Beng, but it is becoming a game where there must be "a greater fool" in the market to buy.

<Not very excited at how CCT and valuers are shifting its valuation parameters over the years to achieve a high asset base>

CCT is acquiring Asia Tower 2.

The acquisition will be funded by rights issue, its cash reserves and more bank borrowings.

The property is sold to CCT at a net property yield at about 3.6%. Post rights, CCT will be more leveraged and will have a lower yield (DPU) post rights.

I don't find this acquisition accretive to shareholders of CCT.

CapitaSpring secures J.P. Morgan as anchor office tenant

Joint venture partners CapitaLand Limited (CapitaLand), CapitaLand Commercial Trust (CCT) and Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd (MEC) unveiled today the name of their upcoming 51-storey skyscraper at 88 Market Street – CapitaSpring.

CapitaLand Commercial Trust owns 45.0% of CapitaSpring, the other joint venture partners are CapitaLand Limited (45.0%) and Mitsubishi Estate Co., Ltd (10.0%).

CapitaSpring which broke ground for construction in February 2018, will be one of the tallest and greenest buildings in Raffles Place, with integrated commercial and community spaces and a City Room at the ground floor. Community events such as fitness sessions and lunchtime performances can be held at the City Room, which will blend into a 12,500-sq-ft public park. Occupants can also look forward to a café, treetop cocoons, sky hammocks, meeting and activity spaces connected by a spiral stairway at the Green Oasis. CapitaSpring will also be home to Singapore’s highest urban farm and a fine-dining restaurant on the rooftop at around 280-metres-high.

J.P. Morgan, the global banking and financial services provider, will take up close to a quarter of the 635,000 square feet (sq ft) of the net lettable area at CapitaSpring. This translates to approximately 155,000 sq ft of premium office space from levels 24 to 30.

WeWork to lease 21-storey Singapore office tower after HSBC moves out

Aradhana Aravindan
JULY 17, 2019 / 8:24 AM

SINGAPORE (Reuters) - WeWork Cos will lease a 21-storey building in Singapore’s prime financial district that is currently leased to HSBC, marking an expansion by the U.S. co-working space provider in Asia.

WeWork, backed by Japan’s SoftBank Group (9984.T), will lease the building from CapitaLand Commercial Trust (CCT) (CACT.SI), the Singaporean office landlord said in a statement.

The tower, 21 Collyer Quay, will be WeWork’s biggest property in the Southeast Asian nation and has a net lettable area of about 200,000 square feet.

CCT said its lease deal with Hongkong and Shanghai Banking Corp Ltd, a unit of HSBC Holdings Plc (HSBA.L), will end in April 2020 but did not give financial details of the new lease.

Co-working spaces have become popular among startups because these give them the flexibility of short-term leases in well-decorated spaces and keep overheads low. Increasingly, larger companies are also using co-working firms to manage their offices.

In Singapore, the flexible workspace footprint has more than tripled since 2015 and now accounts for some 4% of the office space in the central business district, according to real estate consultancy Colliers.

WeWork may get signage rights for the building, which would boost its branding and visibility in the central business district, said Christine Li, head of Singapore and Southeast Asia research at property services firm Cushman and Wakefield.

“It’s a very good catch for WeWork,” said Li, because typically only a few floors are available in the business district due to low vacancy.

The lease will start in the second quarter of 2020 for seven years, CCT said. WeWork will occupy 20 floors of the building, the U.S. firm said in a separate statement, but did not provide details about the one other floor.

HSBC Singapore said last year that it would relocate its head office to Marina Bay Financial Centre, within the central business district.

Rents for grade A buildings in Singapore’s central business district surged 12.7% last year, Cushman and Wakefield’s Li said.
