For sale: A rare 150 sq m executive apartment in a peaceful neighbourhood, surrounded by amenities like hawker centres and minimarts, and only a two-minute walk from Queenstown MRT station. At $798,000, the 22-year-old unit seems like a good deal, as HDB flats of a similar size in the vicinity were sold at between $860,000 and $1.16 million in the last year. But the unit at Block 149, Mei Ling Street, has remained unsold for about five years after it was taken back by the Housing Board, said residents of nearby units.
