New Launch Condo with Commercial Units

The commercial units are to be sold separately?

or they belong to the residential owners collectively and will be rent out to collect some income?

King Albert park lo, that's the few strata commercial still new

Actually I think this type of malls are generally bad. Shop spaces are small and no control over tenant mix

I see. So these malls are open to public?

Actually I was more curious about the big development with shops inside.

Presumably they can only cater for residents?

For example, jadescape and normanton park have commercial units.

Do developer sell them or they belong to residents?

Some Projects such as One Holland Village or SK Grand manage their own shop spaces and tenant mix.

But other projects that have fewer shops (usually) such as Riverfront, the shops will be sold separately as strata titled. The shops don't belong to the residential owners because the shops have their own strata title.

Jadescape's shops are for sale. Normanton no concrete info yet.

The shops are usually located near entrance so resi n visitors from outside can shop but they have not entered the development yet. Visitors still have to go through the locked gates or guard house if they want to enter the condo.

I’ve past by the shops at high park residences before

Their shops are located at a zone anybody can enter. Nearby the shops, there’s a side gate into the development that only residents can enter. So the shops are open to public, without compromising the privacy and space of the residents.

My condo has 2 shops inside the development, both are sold separately. Itís not open to public.
One shop is tenanted as a provision shop.
Another shop is a small cafe that we can order take outs as well.

Some condos like High Park, Coco Palm & Hillsta has shops facing outside of the development and its open to public.

I always wondered how do such commercial units within condo make business, the target audience is pretty small unless itís a minimart catering room 1xxx units but even so, a lot may choose to get groceries from supermarket.

Other than that, very hard for commercial units to do business, itís like in Olden days public swimming pools always have a cafe but it does not last long, since it targets a very niche group of consumers.

Some older condos even has clinic , beauty parlour, spa , Laundry.
Maybe a minimart still okay coz sometimes we just need a bottle of drink but lazy to go all the way to supermarket. Itís a plus to have convenience right at your doorstep
