Industrial parks now house churches, tuition centres

THERE is a quiet transformation taking place in the industrial real estate sector, with an increasingly diverse array of organisations making use of space once reserved for traditional manufacturers.

Organisations such as churches and tuition centres are rubbing shoulders with industrial tenants like furniture makers and warehouse operators in places like Woodlands Industrial Park, Jalan Pemimpin and Alexandra Industrial Estate.

Look at the signboards at one of the blocks at Jalan Pemimpin's Clarus Centre and you will find five religious groups, including Hope Sanctuary, Trinity Community Centre and Victory Harvest Church, and tuition centre TWIG listed as tenants.

It is similar at Henderson Industrial Park, with non-industrial businesses like outfitter Costume City, travel agency Star Holiday Mart and Acts Baptist Church housed across both wings of Block 203.

Offices are also springing up as businesses cut operating costs by taking advantage of the comparatively lower rents industrial landlords charge.
