Chip Bee Estate 1966362 viewsHere's a picture of Chip Bee Estate at Holland Village.
I am sure the familiar landmark of those red-bricked blocks will be in any Britbat Kid's memory. Below the blocks at Jalan Merah Saga and Taman Waran were the row of semi-detached, terraced houses and bungalows which were rented by British Army families. The row of bungalow houses in this photo fronted Holland Road. The hillock on the left of the photo is Kintyre Park Estate. The block of flats in the background is Commonwealth Drive at Queensway.
