The businessman John Gillett has decided to sell three redundant blocks of the Taj on Swan site he bought last year for $17 million in Peppermint Grove.

It was bought from former fertiliser entrepreneur Pankaj Oswal and his wife Radhika.

Gillett and his wife Jocelyn have applied to the WA Planning Commission to split their 6580 square metre superblock.

They have sought three blocks - 765 square metres, 875 square metres and 1104 square metres.

The abandoned home building block of flamboyant billionaire tycoons, Pankaj and Radhika Oswal was sold earlier this year.

Marketed as "the most famous block in Australia" the 2 Bay View Road site was sold through Ray White agent Vivien Yap in conjuction with Sotheby's agent Graham Bowie. 

The now demolished mansion with Swan River views sat unfinished after the Oswals quit Australia in 2010 amid a dispute with bankers about the wind up and sale of their fertiliser business.

The Oswal family had controlled WA's $700 million Burrup Fertilisers gas-processing plant.

The Oswals paid $22.7 million in 2007 when it was bought from developer Warren Anderson then starting construction a year later on a "two-storey, Indian-infused luxury residence".

"The Gillett family is optimistic that the rarity of blocks in this superb location, plus a gradually improving property market, means that the land will be attractive to buyers," a spokesman for Gillett told Nine Entertainment.
