Brizay Park GCBA is accessed via Old Holland Rd / Wilby Rd and shares a common boundary as Garlick Ave GCBA. The Old Holland Rd area is home ground for the MGS Alumnae given its <1km distance. The nearest MRT is King Albert Park, which will be within a 12-15 min walk for most homes here.
It is also at the fringe of the massive Clementi Forest / Green Corridor and the URA Masterplan has identified a 34ha site at Holland Plain to be developed in some 2,500 homes. Till then, the huge grass patch and Holland Green Linear Park serve as great places to exercise and play some football.
This GCBA was named after Emile Brizay, a French structural engineer who also designed the Old Fort Factory and Church of St Teresa. Brizay Park was originally constructed in 1935 with 5 reinforced concrete houses but only 1 remains – 1 Brizay Park, which looks poorly maintained and unoccupied.
Prominent owners in this GCBA / area include Yun Nam Hair Care’s Andy Chua, who purchased his 29,785 sqft home for $33m ($1,108psf) in 2016. He already owns an adjoining plot of 25,750 sqft and sure looks to be amalgamating the 2 plots. Benjamin Ngiam, Managing Director of SGX listed IPC Corporation, which owns several hotels in Japan also stays at Brizay Park.
This GCBA also includes Old Holland Rd, where owners include hair and beauty salons veteran (& boutique property developer) Jean Yip, Teo Hock Seng, Managing Director of car dealer Komoco Motors, who has local distributorships to Ferrari, Maserati, Hyundai and Harley-Davidson amongst others and boutique property developer Victor Ow of Clydesbuilt Group, who developed the nearby Eleven@Holland.
