Local mid-sized developer Roxy-Pacific Holdings’ associate company RH Guillemard was acquiring two freehold residential sites at 2 and 6 Guillemard Lane for a total price of $33.5 million. The developer plans to combine the two sites with two other freehold sites at 12 and 14 Guillemard Lane for residential development. Roxy-Pacific had announced the acquisition of 12 and 14 Guillemard Lane on Sept 15. The four sites have an estimated total land area of 25,601 sq ft.
Under the 2014 Master Plan, the sites are zoned “residential” and have a gross plot ratio of 2.8. Gullemard Road plies between the Sports Hub and the Paya Lebar MRT station, and has since seen many indie pubs, cafes and restaurants popping up in the area. It is becoming a hip place for nearby local residents. These residents previously may find hard to locate a nice ambience for dining, among the nearby eateries in Geylang area which are either too crowded or some among less desired neighbourhoods.
Guillemard Lane is located in the middle of Guillemard Road, which is near to the popular Old Airport Hawker Centre and is poised to see greater redevelopment spilled over from the Paya Lebar area as well as the Old Airport/Kallang region.
On local press recently, there is a group of architects, led by Mr Jonathan Poh, seeking to save parts of Dakota Crescent. Dakota Crescent is one of the oldest public housing estate in the island. The group is submitting a paper to MND to provide various options to save the entire area, as well as conserving parts of the iconic structures in the estate.
Based on the government’s rejuvenation plans for old housing estates, the 17 rental blocks in Dakota Crescent is primed for demolition. The residents have to vacate the area by end of 2016, to either nearby Cassia Crescent or elsewhere if they decide to buy a new flat. The site is reserved for future residential development.
The conservation plan include 8 “butterfly blocks” — curved buildings with 2 perpendicular wings at the back; blocks 10 and 20, which are similar to the already demolished blocks in St Michael’s estate in Whampoa and the Princess and Duchess estates in Queenstown. The flats were built SIT in 1958.
