There is one thing worse than an Enbloc ----- and that is an Enbloc done badly. Since the majority have the necessary mandate to sell, then they owe it to all SPs to make a success of it. Minority SPs can only watch and wait, if they sell then lets pray it's at a price we can move on with, if they don't sell, then we are happy to stay for a few more years.


CapitaLand to acquire Marine Point - CNA 27 Jan 2011
SINGAPORE : CapitaLand has said it will acquire enbloc property Marine Point for S$100.68 million.
