is another national structure going to be demolish? heard and read it

if they keep tearing down all these buildings, there won't be any recognisable one around anymore.

Sad, but unfortunately in a progressing society we would have to do that. else you won't have the orchard road that you have today, most of the buildings are there in place of something which has been demolised..

Yes Clifford Pier would move. A new pier building is being built at Marina South.

BUT the current Clifford Pier would be preserved. To be redeveloped, instead is the Overseas Union House beside it. ;) ;) ;)

HOWEVER it wouldn't be a pier anymore once the Marina Barrage is complete.

Oh, Scotts Shopping Centre would be demolished and redeveloped, too. :(

Eh... you miss out Far East Plaza and Liat Towers including that Mother and son fountain.

Think they'll build condos around there, Thats what they do best! Build more condos, that is half vacant with occupants! haha;p

Still got many other heritage places around Orchard. There's a beautiful little villa at 90 Cuscaden Road. ;)

Note: Do not photograph India House, you would get mistaken for a terrorist! :bsmilie:

And they wonder why people "have no sense of belonging" here. All the places you associate with, if it ain't gone, it will be soon.

Place you grew up as a kid.
Place you went to school.
Place you hung out as a teenager.
Place you had first date.

More likely than not, now no more already (or completely changed).
