Kallang area could see significant changes due to upcoming Sports Hub

Changes could be in store for the Kallang area’s landscape, with the expected completion of Singapore Sports Hub in April 2014.

Analysts believe this could be reflected in the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s Masterplan, which is due to be updated this year.

They said the needs of the Kallang area could change, with the Sports Hub attracting more people and vehicles.

Some analysts said zoning of the area could be affected and thus sites currently marked for commercial, residential, mixed or hotel development could be re-categorised.

One site that could attract significant interest, if the government decides to put it up for sale, is the Old Kallang Airport.

Nicholas Mak, executive director of research and consultancy at SLP International, said: “If the developer is allowed to develop the back of the observation tower to turn it into perhaps, a hotel, the observation tower itself can be operated by F&B operators and restaurants can be located there.”
