CapitaLand Commercial Trust (CCT) announced this week their sale of Twenty Anson, at 20 Anson Road Singapore 079912, to an unrelated third party.

At a price of S$516 million, the property is 19.2% above the property’s valuation of S$433 million.

The sale price represents S$2,503 psf on the building’s net lettable area of approximately 206,000 sqft.

On 22 Feb 2012, CCT announced the acquisition of Twenty Anson which was valued at S$431 million.
