Pearlbank in 2012

Now that the 7 year enblock attempts are over, a sub committee has formed for determining upgrading works. First up is a new reception desk and improvements to the lobby.

Thank you, ArchDaily, for putting my former home office and my then-girlfriend's bedroom up on display

Thanks for the update. It is definitely an icon worth conserving with its unique design. The upgrading is definitely interesting.

This is amazing news!

First great leap, conserving post 1960s architecture, second great leap, conserving modern highrises.

I believe age is not an issue, when it has enough cultural or design merit, it should be eligible for conservation.

YES - but preliminary. A submission to the Government is being prepared by Archurban for the Voluntary Conservation. The first step was to get approval by Pearlbank owners, which passed 98.4%. That happened last April 13th.
