Jardin is a terrible property. Its long and narrow, with weirdo layouts as you pointed out. It’s like the Linear in UBT road. Rather unlivable.

In 2003 master plan, Jardin and GV plots were actually one plot.

I believe FEO owns the freehold title of GV. If that’s really the case, then GV will definitely have issue to go enbloc in my own opinion as the “landlord” of the land to top up the lease will theoretically be FEO.

So with that in mind; this 2 plots owners are actually both FEO, so the price strategy and future of GV actually still lies with FEO as the decaying lease may be to the advantage of FEOz
