Pine Grove, my old estate
So will my old place be going, going gone? Just like Gillman Heights before? It was a lovely place. Very hard to get that sort of housing any more. They are going to replace it with taller and smaller apartments maximizing commercial value at the expense of everything else.
THE Pine Grove condominium is up for tender at $1.7 billion. At a site area of about 893,000sqft or 1,500 units each at 1,200sqft, Pine Grove is the 'largest en bloc site', according to real estate services firm Jones Lang LaSalle.
