Performance Highlight

Gross revenue, NPI, distributable income, and DPU increased yoy mainly due to contributions from the 29 data centres acquired in Jul 2021 and the data centre in Virginia acquired in Mar 2021.

Rental Reversion
The rental rate for renewal leases is more or less the same as before renewal for all types of buildings. Whereas for new leases, the rental rate is similar to passing rent for business parks and ramp-up buildings, slightly lower for flatted factories but significantly lower for hi-tech buildings.


The redevelopment of Kolam Ayer 2 is expecte1d to be completed in phases where 163 & 165 Kallang Way in 2H2022 and 161 Kallang Way in 1H2023.


MIT completed the divestment of 19 Changi South Street 1 in April, which contributed to 0.07% of gross revenue.

Asset Enhancement Initiative

MIT has installed solar panels on the rooftop of Serangoon North Cluster and K&S Corporate HQ in FY20/21. Moving forward, MIT would continue to install solar panels at flatted factories. All these could help to lower the impact of electricity cost increase.
