The main aim of the project is to refresh the development so as to be part of the newly enhanced neighbourhood. Even by conservative estimate, the value of the property will also be greatly increased.
This major upgrading project is not just retrofitting such as like the addition of lifts, additional common toilet at ground level, and a totally new recreational area at the huge rooftop with facilities; it is also about re-imaging the whole development. The new image is 'Retro', complementing the history of the building and the nearby Joo Chiat Heritage Town; within a tight budget. The existing quality of the building is retained and even re-inforced such as the common area 1960s mosaic and timber rooftop parapet.
