Albert StreetOne of the estates which I have revisited in the process of working on the #ImaginariumSG at the Singapore Art Museum were the flats located along Albert Street, bounded by Prinsep Street, Short Street and the now defunct Lorong Silat and Prinsep Court. I have faint memory of these Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT) flats built around the 1950s which came to be known as Rochor House (Blk 12 & 11) and Albert House (Blk 13). I remember the red exposed brick face and ventilation blocks of these flats with coffeeshops on the ground floor.
They were demolished some time after 2007 and made way for the current LASALLE College of the Arts building designed by RSP Architects.
These flats can be seen in "Singapore's Vanished Public Housing Estates" book by Koh Kim Chay and Eugene Ong.
Another landmark along Albert Street is Sim Lim Square, completed in 1987. The IT mall attempted an en block sale earlier this year.
