1) It’s located near the sea.
2) Up to a couple of years ago, it was headquarters for a certain sport association. But I believe this building is probably at least 30 to 40 years old. What it was originally; I have no idea. Hope some reader can enlighten us.
This building is located between Nicoll Highway (above photo, left) and Stadium Road. It is next to National Stadium car park B. Across the road (right of this photo) is what used to be the Marine Coast Guard HQ which moved out a few months ago. I used to go there quite often for my brisk walking exercise with my friend Chuck. At that time, my son used to have his kayaking training there. But nowadays they train at the MacRitchie Reservoir. At that time I saw a sign saying this building was the headquarters of the Singapore Netball Association. Subsequently that association was shifted to another location near to the Stadium Boulevard side. I took these photos because I suspect they will tear it down pretty soon when they start constructing the new Sports Hub.The above is a 1960’s photo of the Nicoll Highway and Merdeka Bridge (Thanks to Memories of Singapore for use of this photo) As you can see, the building was already there before the present National Stadium was built. According to my friend Peter Chan:
"This building was a look-out tower for aircrafts landing at the Old Kallang Airport. When there was Kallang Airport (up to 1955), it was used by the Royal Singapore Flying Club which later shifted to Paya Lebar Airport and now at Seletar Airport."
