Golden Mile Complex : General View, 3

A photograph showing various parts of Golden Mile Complex. This building is a residential and commercial development, situated between Nicoll Highway and Beach Road. Formerly known as Woh Hup Complex, it was developed as part of the Urban Renewal Department’s goal to redevelop Singapore’s central area in the 1960s. The building was designed by Gan Eng Oon, William Lim and Tay Kheng Soon. Since its opening, Golden Mile Complex has stood out as one of Singapore's pioneering large-scale mixed-use developments, effectively combining commercial, recreational, and residential functions within a single structure. This visionary concept aimed to establish a cohesive and vibrant urban environment within a compact space. As time passed, the building continued to be an iconic landmark, and its unique brutalist architecture made it one of the few remaining structures of its kind. Recognizing its architectural significance, the building was officially conserved in 2021, cementing its place as an architectural gem.
