Ford Avenue is said to be named after the Ford Motor Co., which built their 1st Southeast Asian motorcar assembly plant at Upper Bukit Timah in 1941. (History adapted from Robert Powell’s “Singapore Good Class Bungalow 1819-2015″ ISBN 978-981-14-0844-1)
It is located just opposite the ever popular Lor Mambong row of eateries and the nearest Ford Ave address is just a 6 min walk from Holland Village MRT. The area is set to be rejuvenated when the upcoming One Holland Village (Resi + Shops + Office) is complete.
This GCBA also sits snugly in a cluster of 9 GCBAs, with several more GCBAs in very close vicinity. Among the 9 are Oei Tiong Ham, Queen Astrid Park, Ford Avenue and Belmont Park. Just imagine what sweeping views some of the One Holland Village residents will get!
Just like other GCBAs such as Dalvey Estate, Cornwall Gardens and Belmont Park, addresses at the start of road are typically small 4-5 storey private apartments. In this case, it would be Urban Edge (~$1,565 psf) and The Ford @ Holland (~$1,945psf). Prices are not exactly indicative as units are rarely available. In fact, I struggled to find any information on the sale price of any GCBs at Ford Avenue, which is rather small to begin with.
Famous owners in this GCBA are said to include Wilmar’s billionaire co-founder Martua Sitorus and former LifeBrandz CEO and serial investor Chng Weng Wah.
