Cantonment Close, is located at Central Area. It is surrounded by Cantonment road to the east and Keppal Viaduct highway to the north. The special thing about Cantonment close is the infrastructure similarity to Liverpool. If you have been through the urban areas of Liverpool, you might have seen the royal design of architectural buildings, complemented by trees surrounding them. Well, Cantonment close is just like a twin sister of Liverpool. While rebuilding of Singapore was going on 1970s, the British architectures heavily empathised with this particular place, as it was one of their hubs during colonial times. After gaining independence, Singapore administration welcomed British designers to re-design this area into something that will represent the everlasting friendly relationship between Singapore and Britain.
Thus the whole area of Cantonment close was design as per the infrastructure of Liverpool. The shopping complexes, commercial hubs, apartments, roadways etc. were identical to the ones present 1000 miles away from there. After the renovations were completed, people flooded this area to witness the astonishing change happened in this place. With such influx of people coming into this place for hangout and entertainment, it soon became one of the popular places among Royals and high profile people to own a property here. In result, the prices went up and its affordability got limited to rich class people.
Well, things have been changed a lot and now, people have a higher purchasing parity now and can afford properties at anyplace, after 2000. Since then, new apartments were getting constructed and were offered to people at much affordable prices, as compared to few years back. Even now, there are many apartments vacant which are highlighted to get sold or get a rent. There is no hidden fact that being a part of Bedok, it is one of the most well-developed and posh areas of Singapore to live in. Since the time of colonial period, there have been many alterations done to the local architecture. The starting phase of alteration came into implementation in early 1900, when British’s planned on making a commercial hub for their trading purposes. This place have so many man-made structures and buildings that are present till date and it attracts international tourists (especially from Britain) to visit here. Staying in this place will not only make you feel nostalgic about the rich history of Singapore but push you little closer to the royal city of Liverpool.
