The Singapore Land Authority (SLA) said there is a “growing interest” in the use of State properties for ad-hoc events. Various activities, from fashion shows to product launches, are being held in buildings that are no longer in use.
The SLA has issued 27 Non-Renewable Temporary Occupation Licences (NRTOLs) since last year to those who wished to hold their events at such places.
A popular venue is the former Kallang Airport, which has hosted fashion shows in recent months. Another 20 State properties are up for rent, including the old Tanjong Pagar Railway Station and several buildings in the Dempsey Road and Bukit Timah areas. The SLA said these properties can be used for fashion shows, location filmings and product launches.
