    Default Need help from someone living in east area.

    Does anyone remember what used to be at D'Ecosia condo site?

    The condo was recently built and I would like to know what used to be on that site.

    It's at the junction of Still Road South and Marine Parade Road.

    I think it used to be a very big mansion, but was deserted for years and years. It was something similar to the mansion across the road directly, which is also abandoned long time ago.....bbbrrrrrr....

    I think you are talking about the former Grand Hotel. It was built in 1917 by Moona Kader Sultan. It was call Karikal Mahal and later renamed as Grand Hotel. I think part of the Hotel is gazetted for conservation.

    Considering the looks of it... Think that some major reno and conservation is in order!!

    just came back from that area...
    always think what was previously there, cos opposite the condo and along the road, there is a really rundown place, but i can imagine how grand it used to be...
    now its just rotting away...at nite, better dont stare too hard into the black windows...
    too many shots...

    The junction of Marine Parade Road and Still Road South.

    One corner is an old abandoned mansion.
    One corner is a HDB flat.
    One corner is Marine Parade Community Building.
    One corner is the condo.

    The condo site was a grass patch for a long time?

    Yup... Agree that it is really scary. Was studying around the area previously... Get the chills everytime look at the deserted mansion!
