Remember the Corner Shophouse at Cecil St?

The corner shophouse taken by my father in 1971.

The IOB Building taken by myself in 2007. 36 years later in similar angle.

Why demolish the shophouse to build such a short building?



  1. Garrr.. They could have just refurbished and restored the original building to its former glory. Instead of one that looks normal and doesn’t stand out, I’d rather have one that does…
    Awesome photo of the new on though. 🙂

  2. Nice animation!

  3. perhaps, it’s time to demolish the ordinary looking IOB building and build a skyscraper on it! 🙂
