    I live at Tanah Merah for the past 2 years (Casa Merah). I like this area.

    I lost interest in Urban Vista due to their tiny tiny unit sizes. Less than 600sqft for a 2 bed, 2 bath with bomb shelter + balcony + ac ledge

    Hope the glades will give more generous unit sizes.

    I think this is going to be expensive though PSF

    Did developer pay too much for the land? This is Tanah Merah after all; quite remote. Is it worth paying more than city fringe?

    I'm hoping Keppel will make this a striking development with high end finishes. Then we can justify the expected high PSF.
    Developer did pay a lot for this plot, to the tune of 8xx ppr? I guess avg will be >$1400psf. Keppel product finishes std shd b quite high...

    most of keppel's project finishing, even in far our places like sengkang appear to be decent, at least at the showroom level that is.

    this will be an interesting launch, especially in the face of the latest measures.

    With its private and landed enclave surrounding with no lack of amenities and convenience just doorstep to Tanah Merah MRT Station, the development by Keppel Land should expect good interest.

    So far, the developments by Keppel Land come with decent unit sizes, let keep our finger crossed. Agreed with bro Kane, one would expect good quality furnishing for Keppel Land development. Based on their track records till date, it has not disappoint the consumers.

    Land bid closed at $791.42 psf ppr. There are some mathematics to do here. This would definitely be an very interesting project! Imagine yourself staying in a unit with south facing over the landed estate towards East Coast Park!!! Really get excited thinking about it! Units with north facing do still enjoy the open views over the landed estate up north!

    From what my folks used to tell me, I think the massacre of chinese civilians by japanese soldiers was at Upper East Coast Road and not The Glade site.

    I remember seeing the barren hill when i was a child and my folks would say that chinese civilians were brutally massacred in the area of the hill.

    Of course the hill looks completely different now as lots of homes are built on it. I am not so sure of the exact locality but I would think it is in the vicinity of Lucky Heights, The Summit and the The Riviera Residence. If you are interested in the history of Upper East Road, here are the links for you to read:

    Part of D'Manor and Casa Merah (maybe since the roads are realigned) are built on a cemetery.

    Refer to URA Masterplan 1980 (yellow portion)

    Yee ha! Did I tickle your funny bone?

    But in July 2011, someone found skeletons. The exact location is unclear. Report says an Indian Almond tree 5-min walk downslope from Jalan Limau Kastari.

    By Rachel Chan

    A SHOCKING find was made by two land surveyors last Saturday afternoon when they ventured into a forested area near Tanah Merah MRT station.

    The two men discovered a skeleton under a tree in a secluded spot off New Upper Changi Road, Chinese newspapers Lianhe Wanbao and Shin Min Daily News reported yesterday.

    When contacted by my paper yesterday, police confirmed that they received a call at about 3.15pm, shortly after the discovery.

    The identity of the skeleton and its gender remain a mystery. A blue T-shirt and a pair of white underwear were believed to have been left on the skeleton. A haversack was found nearby.

    The remains were surrounded by wads of $5 and $10 notes, believed to amount to more than $1,000, as well as a battered Nokia mobile phone, reported Lianhe Wanbao. The spot where the surveyors stumbled on the skeleton is a five-minute walk downslope from a nearby private estate in Jalan Limau Kastari.

    When they came to an Indian almond tree, the land surveyors were shocked to find an exposed skull, and a skeleton partially hidden by fallen leaves. The surveyors said they could not tell whether the bones belonged to a man or a woman.

    They also noticed a blue rope tied to a branch 4m above the spot where the remains were found.

    Shin Min Daily News reported that more than 20 police officers spent four hours combing an area the size of three basketball courts last Saturday afternoon. Neighbours reportedly detected a foul smell coming from the area two months ago.

    Police have classified the case as unnatural death and are investigating.
