This is an opportunity to own an “HDB” flat that isn’t built by the HDB.
These flats were built by HDB’s predecessor, the Singapore Improvement Trust (S.I.T.)
There are only 4 such blocks within the POST WAR side of Tiong Bahru and these were actually designed BEFORE WWII. The constructions of these block only resumed after the WWII.
To understand why there was a gap between the Pre-War Tiong Bahru and Post War Tiong Bahru, just think of the Circuit Breaker in 2020. Everything came to a standstill, just like how WWII brought everything to a standstill back then.
If you were to look up the roof of the building, you will notice the pitch roofs which are unique and different from the rest of the buildings in hood. Such pitch roof are really a reflection of yesteryear’s building style. You probably can’t find any now except in colonial enclaves in the Dempsey, Portsdown area.
This 2 bedroom apartment awaits a brand new makeover.. It is sitting in a quieter part of the hood, away from roads and traffic.
The extra windows, being a corner unit, provides addition natural light and view to the outside.
This apartment is just within a stone’s throw from the MRT, Malls, Market and Cafes.
Please take your time to walk through the virtual tour. I’ve also provided a floor plan for you reference.
Physical viewing is possible since the place is vacant right now. But please note that we can only admit 1 at a time.
So please be patient with me as we navigate through this challenging fight against the invisible enemy.
