Manulife Centre is a 241,388 sqft mixed-use building in the central business district owned by Chelsfield Asia and asset manager ARA.
The 11-storey building is located along the Orchard corridor in the Civic and Cultural District of Bras Basah. Manulife Centre, previously known as Plaza by the Park, is located where Bras Basah Road crosses Bencoolen Street and is served by both the MRT Downtown and Circle lines.
Chelfield Asia and ARA will conduct an upgrade in the 3rd quarter of the year after main anchor tenant Manulife, which currently leases more than half of the office space, moves out to Manulife Tower at Cross Street. The property upgrade will include creating a better sense of arrival and activating the retail space more effectively. High-quality tenants and co-working operators will be targeted in order to create a greater vibrancy for the asset.
Subject to approvals, final design and advice, the work will start in September 2019 and complete in the summer of 2020.
