125 Joo Chiat Place

2013

Urban Redevelopment Authority

Urban Redevelopment Authority

This Transitional style shophouse is one of the numerous developments marking the urbanisation of Joo Chiat during the inter-war period and was the premises of a neighbourhood bookshop – the Lucky Book Store.

Restored for residential use, the long-eroded façade was reinstated according to the building’s original design while the bookshop’s faded signage at the five foot way was retained as a nostalgic reminder to the building’s previous use. By preserving elements unique to the heritage of the building, the project has made the street more interesting.

For more information on the building, visit URA's My Conservation Portal.
