They're conserved:

JELLICOE ROAD CONSERVATION AREA

Located along Jellicoe Road, the area was given conservation status on 21 February 2000. It contains a unique row of 16 two-storey Art Deco style shophouses with individual gable roofs and protruding balconies. The shophouses are anchored by 3-storey corner towers at both ends. They were built in the late 1920s by a Swiss engineer, Hendrich Rudolf Arbenz.

I think the new apartment and these shophouses will complement each other well!

Hmm...I passed by the trademark site, and that old thing is still standing, but looking semi destroyed. I really wonder what they are going to do about it!

well based on this article, it seems positive

CapitaLand's Tanglin Residences debuts in Jakarta

11 Nov 04

By VINCE CHONG

AS EXPECTED, CapitaLand has released its prime 43-unit Tanglin Residences, a freehold boutique development in the Nassim area, before the end of the year. However, the project made its debut not in Singapore, but in Jakarta over the past weekend.

Sources said the development was priced at $1,300-$1,350 per square foot, and attracted 'single-digit' sales over the period from Friday. They added, too, that more than 20 potential homebuyers are planning to have a closer inspection of the physical environment in Singapore before committing.

Such preference largely resulted from the recent recessionary years, where real estate buyers and investors have understandably become more cautious. This is a change from the market's peak in the mid-1990s, when buyers would commit themselves based on floor plans and models alone.

Still, Indonesian businessmen form a vital market for high-end projects as few Singaporeans would be interested at those prices.

This is the second time CapitaLand has released a project first in Jakarta, with the first being its Imperial development last year. The 187-unit freehold condo off River Valley Road was then marketed at an average $835 psf.

CapitaLand did not comment on its latest move, nor disclose when Tanglin Residences will launch in Singapore.

The group is also expected to release, before the year ends, a 99-year condo at Jellicoe Road with about 600 units and a freehold condo at Martin Road with about the same number of homes. The Martin Road project will be built on the Trademart site and is a joint venture with Hwa Hong Corporation.

CapitaLand's Jakarta sales also coincided with that of another Singapore real estate giant City Developments Ltd, which marketed its joint venture project with AIG, the Sail@Marina Bay, at the same time in the Indonesian capital. Some 12-14 homes were reportedly sold at an average $900 psf.

Property players believe that the total number of new private homes sold this year will still exceed last year's measly 5,156 - as long as developers bring on the projects but at reasonable prices.

Haha...the thing is there was construction going right beside it too, and I cant seem to find any signboards. It seems to invovle the conservation of some of the old warehouses there. I dont know if they belong to the same development?
