The Former Park View Mansions Enbloc in Chip Eng Seng is one of the newest enblocs in the country. Located next to Jurong Lake Gardens, the en bloc offers 99-year leasehold tenures and sits on 191,974 sq ft of land site. Its land rate is $1,023 per sq ft per plot ratio, with a maximum permitted gross floor area of 403,141 sq ft.
