Dakota Crescent is one of Singapore’s oldest public housing. Built in the late 1950s, the iconic architecture have long been taken for granted. But since the announcement to redevelop the antiquated houses, no small amount of visitors have flocked to the quaint and unassuming housing estate, hoping to capture the last vestiges of Singapore’s first public housing.
Obviously, we could not pass down this opportunity! Dakota Crescent is located near Old Airport Road Hawker Centre, a two-storey smorgasbord of local cuisines and dishes (look out for that Makan Hunt in the near future). Armed with our trusted Fujifilm XT-10 and our creative juices and keen eyes, we headed down to Dakota to capture memorable moments!
Finally, we also took a couple of instax, as seen below!
It is sad and rather poignant, visiting these estates (see our entry about Rochor Centre, another unique housing/commercial estate being demolished this year) and knowing that they may not be around any more! So what are you waiting for; go out there and get snapping!
