Civic District to be groomed for arts and culture

PLANS to revitalise¬†Singapore’s Civic District are being made now, with the Urban Redevelopment Authority calling on local and international consultants to pitch for the project.

Aimed at strengthening the identity of the downtown precinct as an attractive world-class arts and cultural hub, landmarks such as The National Art Gallery, Victoria Theatre and Victoria Concert Hall will be refreshed, while pedestrian connectivity and public spaces will be improved through landscaping works.

Consultants will need to propose ways to improve connectivity to adjacent precincts, such as Fort Canning Park, Bras Basah and Bugis, as well as to the City Hall MRT Station and the Marina Bay waterfront.

Interested consultant teams must submit their proposals by January 31, 2013.

The project is scheduled for completion in the first quarter of 2015
