Project commenced in October 2020.
Targeted completion by 2030/31.
The Project aims to restructure and re-plan the area through redevelopment and to provide opportunities for revitalization for the surroundings and urban design considerations to enhance the liveability, walkability of the community and bring vibrancy to public spaces.
The proposed development of the Project includes:
Included part of the existing Thistle Street Rest Garden in the Scheme to enable re-structuring of land uses to open up the existing “land-locked” public open space (POS) to street front to enhance the accessibility of the Rest Garden.
Create a sunken plaza of about 200sq.m, connecting to the entrance of the re-provisioned POS and retail shops at basement to bring vibrancy to the community.
Provision of about 2,850sq.m. non-domestic GFA for GIC uses to bring more planning gains to the community.
Redevelop existing dilapidated buildings within the Scheme into modern residential buildings cum commercial/retail/GIC components.
The Project may also include other facilities and uses as required by the TPB.
