Mr Leon Perera asked the Minister for National Development regarding the conservation of Golden Mile Complex, whether action will be taken to document its intangible heritage given its historic role as an early example of high-rise apartment living and as a transit point for bus links to Malaysia.
Mr Desmond Lee: Golden Mile Complex has been the subject of various heritage documentation efforts. For example, NUS, supported by NHB, had completed a research study in 2021 on post-independence buildings in Singapore, which included interviews with Golden Mile Complex’s tenants, visitors and residents on its intangible heritage. In addition, several members of public have documented their experiences at Golden Mile Complex on their own initiative, capturing the building’s history through books, videos, blogs and media articles.
