Former Joo Chiat Police Station to be developed as hotel site

SINGAPORE: A land parcel housing the historic former Joo Chiat Police Station has been put up for development as a hotel site.

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) on Tuesday released the detailed sales conditions for the hotel site located at East Coast Road.

With a land area of 0.8 hectares, the land parcel is expected to generate a gross floor area of about 24,700 square metres.



URA said the site contains the historically and architecturally significant former Joo Chiat Police Station, which is to be conserved and restored as part of the hotel development.

The land parcel is located prominently at the junction of East Coast Road and Joo Chiat Road, an area lined with conserved shophouses housing many eateries and shops.

URA added that the inclusion of the stately building built in the 1920s within the site will add a unique charm to the future hotel development.

The 99-year leasehold site is made available for application under the Reserve List of the first half 2012 Government Land Sales Programme.

Under the Government's Reserve List system, the land parcel will be released for sale if the criteria for the triggering of the sale is met.

When the site is put up for tender, a tender period of about 6 to 8 weeks will be allowed before tender closes.
