Although its official name only has First and Third Ave, this GCBA also unsurprisingly includes Second Ave and parts of Namly Hill and Namly Ave. Many people know this GCBA to be home to our former Prime Minister Goh Chok Tong. Fourth / Sixth Avenue belong to another GCBA which I will cover next.
Located in the heart of Bukit Timah, this GCBA is just beside Hwa Chong Institution and opposite National Junior College. Its closest MRT is Sixth Ave, which is relatively near for most homes as the individual avenues are not that long.
Latest transactions are a 14,667 sqft Second Ave home sold for $30m ($2,045psf), 30,954 sqft Third Ave GCB sold for $52.8m ($1,708 psf) to Razer CEO Tan Min Liang, both in July 2021 and a 10,695 sqft First Ave home sold for $13.5m ($1,262 psf).
Famous owners past and present are rumoured to include Emeritus Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong, beleaguered former billionaire Lim Oon Kuin of Hin Leong, Tan Chong Deputy Chairman Joseph Ong, NTU founding President Dr Cham Tao Soon,the late former NOL CEO Lua Cheng Eng, former NOL Deputy CEO Lim How Teck, former ST Engineering COO Tay Siew Choon EVP of fashion apparel manufacturer Luenthai Sunny Tan and Panweld Trading’s Loh family.
