Cautious sentiment prevails on OUE Commercial REIT despite rosy office outlook


After several quarters of stagnation, the Singapore office market seems to be finally showing signs of a reprieve.

According to data compiled by Colliers International, Central Business District (CBD) Premium and Grade A office rents in the city state rose for the first time in nine quarters for 3Q 2017, edging up 0.4% quarter-on-quarter.
