The old estate is set to be redeveloped for public housing.
Under the URA Draft Master Plan 2019, future public housing will be planned around the six former Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT) blocks and the iconic courtyard space.
The ministry revealed that agencies are currently in active discussion with potential community users on the usage of the SIT blocks to be retained.
“The ground level could be activated for community uses, while the upper storeys could be used for accommodation, for example as a students’ hostel,” it said.
“Interested parties are conducting feasibility studies on the suitability of these blocks.”
With this, the ministry promised to share more information with stakeholders once the studies are completed.
