It was an evening to remember as over 200 friends, business partners and associates, together with directors and senior management of Keppel, celebrated Keppel REIT’s 10th anniversary on 17 May 2016 at Capitol Theatre.
Dr Audrey Chin, Chairman of Keppel REIT Management, thanked guests for partnerships forged which have been integral to Keppel REIT’s success. She also acknowledged the important roles played by past leaders and thanked the Board and staff for their support and dedication towards growing Keppel REIT.
Since its listing as K-REIT Asia in April 2006, Keppel REIT’s growth journey has been marked by a myriad of transformations, yet through it all, its focus has not wavered as it strives to continuously capture value and deliver sustainable returns to Unitholders.
Keppel REIT began with four initial properties in Singapore that became the foundation from which the REIT would expand and grow. Assets under management expanded from over $600 million in 2006 to more than $8 billion to-date.
Today, Keppel REIT is one of Asia’s leading REITs with a young portfolio of best-in-class office assets in Singapore and Australia.
The Manager’s proactive strategy to optimise and upgrade Keppel REIT’s portfolio through the years has yielded results. Its total net lettable area has more than quadrupled from only 800,000 sf of office space in 2006 to approximately 3.3 million sf of premium Grade A office space today.
