SINGAPORE, July 9 (Reuters) - Media group Singapore Press Holdings Ltd plans to raise at least S$523 million ($409 million) by spinning off some of its property assets via a real estate investment trust, according to a preliminary prospectus filed on Tuesday.

Called SPH REIT, the trust's assets will include the luxury Paragon mall on the prime shopping district of Orchard Road and the suburban Clementi Mall.

SPH expects gross proceeds of between S$523 million and S$554 million based on the price range of S$0.85 to S$0.90 per REIT unit.
