SINGAPORE - Singapore Management University has signed a lease for the former MPH Building, at the junction of Stamford Road and Armenian Street.

SMU is leasing the building as an interim solution to cater to its expanding programmes until the new School of Law building is ready in 2017.

The lease for the former MPH Building, inked recently, will begin in the fourth quarter of this year and the university is expected to start occupying the premises at the end of this year, an SMU spokesman told BT.

The four-storey conserved landmark building - now known as Vanguard Building and owned by Vanguard Interiors - has a net lettable area of about 26,000 sq ft.

SMU's spokesman said: "The leased space will house some of our offices, teaching, learning and research facilities to cater to our expanding programmes."

She declined to elaborate on the lease terms, but BT understands the lease duration is at least three years, to help tide over the current space crunch on the campus.
