Colonial Mansions Are A Waste Of Land: We Can Build HDBs There Instead!

In a city-state like Singapore, where land is scarce and every square inch matters, the preservation of colonial mansions is questionable. Recent news about ministers renting Colonial Mansions at Ridout Rd has highlighted to us how much space such relics of the past take.

Colonial mansions, remnants of a bygone era, stand as a symbol of Singapore’s history under foreign rule. While some argue that these buildings hold cultural and heritage value, the continued preservation of these estates, often with limited public access, is a waste of public resources. The vast amounts of land they occupy could be utilized for more pressing needs that directly benefit Singaporeans, such as affordable housing.

It is disheartening to see these huge estates sitting empty while numerous families struggle to find suitable accommodations.
