New vision for Kallang

In a bid to rejuvenate the Kallang area, the Singapore government is keen to review existing development plans for the precinct.

Smaller development sites may be integrated into larger ones to transform them into major mixed-use development projects.

In addition, the unoccupied Kallang Airport site may be incorporated into the redevelopment sites. The plot once housed the People’s Association (PA) headquarters.

The issue surfaced after the Ministry for National Development (MND) announced that it would remove two Kallang Riverside hotel sites from the reserve list under the Government Land Sales (GLS) Programme for the second half of the year, saying that both sites will be put under review.

The sites were made available for sale in June 2009 and June last year. However, they failed to attract any acceptable bids from property developers
