Gillman owners not impressed

OWNERS of the Gillman Heights Condominium that is being knocked down to make way for The Interlace were disappointed with what they saw at a private preview of the new development yesterday.

Their chief complaint was that the units offered to them had bad facings and that prices were too high. Mr S.T. Soh, 68, said: ‘The apartments being offered were either too close to the highway, or were on very low floors facing Depot Road. These are among the worst units in the project.’

Another owner, who wanted to be known only as Madam Koh, had expected lower prices. But even the low-level units were going for a minimum of $1,048 per sq ft (psf), she said.

CapitaLand said the apartments ranged in price from $850 psf to $1,150 psf and represented a full spectrum of unit types from 807 sq ft to 5,877sq ft. Of the 1,040 units at The Interlace, 153 units from five blocks were offered at the private preview. A spokesman said: ‘These units, located on different levels in the development, also offer various facings – towards the pool, towards the sea, and towards the greenery at HortPark.’

The purchase of 607-unit Gillman Heights by Capitaland was completed in May, and the owners received between $870,000 and $950,000 for their units. They were also offered first bite to buy a new home at The Interlace.
