Anyone knows where are these flats at?





The captions say "Singapore Improvement Trust flats". Looks interesting, any one knows if they're still around?

Those at Tiong Bahru and Old Airport are a great pity... They were over 50 years old.

1st pic should be former Old Airport...

2nd pic definitely Tiong Bahru, demolished. Built the temp market for hawkers to relocate to when the Tiong Bahru Market was being reconstructed... now its empty field... its directly opposite blk 78 Moh Guan Terr & junction of Lim Liak St... other side is Central Green, Kim Tian Road.

Yes. S.I.T. was the former entity of HDB which were in charge of the Tiong Barhu HDB & privatised ones also... can any verify the info I got that Tiong Bahru conservation apts were actually built in 1910 and were actually leased out for like 50yrs before being sold on a 99yr lease and hence it has only 59yrs left>

Any official site to check it out?
