Saying goodbyes to buildings/places along park connector network - updated

Rochor Centre



These colorful blocks of flats are to be demolished soon. Just behind them is the revitalised Rochor Canal.


Another place near to Rochor Canal that will become history from July 10, 2017 is the Sungei Road flea market, or Thieves' market.


Dakota Crescent


These low-rise rental flats along Geylang park connector will be torn down soon. All residents have to clear this place by last day of the year (of course they will be a few who could not do that).

Note: Current channel 8 serial "The Hero" is using the buildings here for its story.


Zouk


This landmark for youngsters along Singapore River Promenade has already shifted to Clarke Quay but the building is not gone yet.


Jurong Country Club


Jurong Country Club, surrounded by Jurong Lake will close for good on the last day of the year to make way for the high speed train linking Singapore to Malaysia.


Yangtze Cinema and Pearls Centre


The very old Pearls Hill shopping centre and the last famous R-rated cinema Yangtze closed in August to make way for a new MRT line. The building is just behind the Pearls Hill central park, famous for its 3/4 cylindrical Pearl Bank apartments.
