Joo Chiat for a variety of reasons has been in the news in the recent year/months for better or worse.... Particularly, the publicity (good or bad) there has to some extent appeared to be somewhat contrarian or counter-supportive of what would otherwise in some sense portrary by other write-ups or other forms of media. Top of my head we have
1. Joo Chiat lock out of workers from their quarters (that place is foreign workers infested??)
2. Appears to have some form of support for government intention to convert that to an arts / heritage place?
3. Appears to motivate the point where there are intentions to clamp down Joo Chiat as a red-light district and perhaps to revamp it over time ?
4. Joo Chiat (quarelling) families (for entertainment value?)
I was hoping to get some views of the forumers here on owning a property in Joo Chiat area (i.e. Koon Seng Road, Joo Chiat Place, Chiku Road, Rambutan Road, Mangis Road, Joo Chiat Lane.....etc)....
Any advise or views, for or against all welcome.
