The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) has made available for lease a trio of heritage bungalows at 31, 31A, and 33 Scotts Road, and has launched an open bidding exercise for a two-storey bungalow at 11 Orange Grove Road.

The trio of single-storey bungalows along Scotts Road sit on a 36,670 sq ft plot and have a total gross floor area (GFA) of 11,410 sq ft. According to the terms of this tender, the allowable use of this State property is meant for creative lifestyle use - such as experiential retail, F&B, wellness, or beauty concepts.

The colonial-era bungalows were originally constructed in the late 1920s for residential purposes. They feature distinctive architectural elements such as Corinthian columns with stilts inspired by Malayan design principles.
