SINGAPORE - A property developer is building a luxury condominium in Geylang around two terraced houses after their owners refused to sell their freehold properties.

When the NoMa condominium in Guillemard Road is completed in 2023, one of the two houses will be hemmed in on three sides by the 50-unit development. The other will be wedged between NoMa and the existing La Brisa condominium along Lorong 28 Geylang.
