22 June 2018: My final sight of Rochor Centre before it was demolished a few days later for redevelopment Heavy downpour, socks were soaked with rainwater, travelled around Bugis and Rochor to witness the historic and colourful buildings for the last time but I failed to accomplish. So near yet so far. Up till now, I still could not understand. Demolished those buildings for redevelopment? #oneyearago #22062018 #rochorcentre #notcomplete #heavydownpour

Where Rochor Centre used to be. Lower class housing in the middle of the city. I’ll always remember the kimzhua shops along the road. Strange to think i was just there not too long ago, and now its literally reduced to nothingness. Sitting behind me on the bus, a couple around my parents’ age commentate on these constructions, demolitions n pending ones, as the bus snaked thru the city. Property prices? Whats it gonna change to? Are they gonna preserve it? The second photo is of the demolition site in afternoon sun glory viewed from Fu Lu Shou Complex. In my afternoon sleepiness that day, or was it my Singaporean numbness to change, I didn’t realise what i was photographing. #rochorcentre #demolition #singapore

Those colourful flats are no longer at where they used to be. We last took a picture of them about 3 years back. Kinda sad to see them gone. Swipe to see where the flats used to stand. . Edit: Because this post deserves more details. . The Rochor Centre was built in 1977 where it used to house over 500 households and 200 shops. To us, and many others, it's also quite an iconic building in the Bugis area. Sadly, these colourful architecture had to be sacrificed for progress and development and was demolished in April this year to make way for the North-South Expressway and Ophir-Rochor development programme. . #tonytonychopper #onepiece #ワンピース #トニートニーチョッパー #チョッパー #乔巴 #喬巴 #chopperman #toys #toystagram #instatoys #plushiesofinstagram #chopperatacorner #rochorcentre #apieceofhistory #throwback #throwbackthursday #tbt

It is as if they never existed. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is an overview of part of the Rochor area with Bugis and the Rochor Canal on the left. In the foreground is a large green field that used to be part of the Sungei Road market and further back, the other green patch of grass was where an open air carpark used to stand just over 2 years ago. It is quite scary when you think about it. How quickly a space is erased. Like I told my friends, "it is as if they never existed." ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I made a similar photograph back in June of 2017 with my then newly-acquired SEL1224G lens and in that previous image (which is in the second photograph), you can see the number of changes that has occured since. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ For a start, Sungei Road market is no longer there. You can now also see Cheng Yan Place, where previously, Rochor Centre used to be in front. And, with Rochor Centre gone, you also see Pearl Bank apartments in the distance. Although that is ironic because by 30 April 2019 (today), Pearl Bank apartments will stand empty, awaiting demolition.

: Rochor Centre was a group of public housing buildings in Singapore built in 1977. It was completely torn down to make way for the upcoming North-South Expressway and Ophir-Rochor development programme in April 2019. The photos showed before and after it was demolished and some of the daily life activities in the estate. : : : : : : : : #singapore #rochorcentre #uniquelysingapore #giveway #publichousing #hdb #redevelopment #everchanging #dailylife #composeandwait #corridors #people #almostbutbarely

Built in 1977, Rochor Centre once housed over 500 households and 200 shops including a post office, bank, and emporium. One could have the convenience of accessing a wide range of products and services located at one single complex and residents enjoyed the convenience of the amenities at their doorsteps. Taken just a few months after the closure of Rochor Centre - these colourful blocks that once painted the skies have since been demolished. . . . (Photograph taken in 2016)

Over a period of nine months, the iconic Rochor Centre, comprising four multi-coloured Housing Board blocks, was torn down to make way for development. The Straits Times documented this process from June 2018 to March 2019. Link in bio @straits_times 🎥: Jamie Koh #thestraitstimes #timelapse #history #bugis #rochorcentre #rochor #singapore #sg

The rochor centre demolition project. Spent 9 months documenting this weekly. I think I could have done this better but hindsight is always 20/20. #timelapse #rochorcentre

For the past 9 months, I went down every week to document the demolition of the #rochorcentre Fast forward, the ground that once stood the 4 colourful blocks has reduced to a flat land. Here are my vision through the viewfinder. Publish in today’s @lianhewanbao 过去九个月在梧槽坊拆除工地不停运转的 挖土机完成了任务,随着拆除工程本月完工, 梧槽河边的红、绿、蓝、黄“四彩”组屋也正 式走入了历史。  回溯1960年代新加坡面对住屋短缺的问 题,当时有越来越多人住在环境拥挤、卫生 欠佳的房子里。在这个背景下,建屋发展局推 动城市翻新计划,结合组屋和商店的梧槽坊于 1977年建竣。 梧槽坊采纳的是“主楼加垫楼”(tower and podium)建筑形式,由四座组屋与购物 商场综合而成,共有567户人家、187间店铺。 坐落在武吉士繁忙市区的边角地段,梧槽 坊以色彩鲜艳的外衣,在新加坡的城市风景线 上留下深刻痕迹,也见证了奥菲亚路和梧槽路 的迅速发展。 配合全长21.5公里的南北交通廊道建造工 程,梧槽坊四座组屋在2011年底被征用,去年 6月26日展开的拆除工作比预期提早一个月完 工。 过去九个月,《联合晚报》摄影记者每周 到访梧槽坊,以镜头记录这标志性建筑的完整 拆除过程。
