Back in 1996, Mr. Lau Wee Soong had invested $4.22 million on 5 units of 2 storey , old shop houses at Club Street, in the Historical District of Chinatown and since then had spent another $3 million to restore these 182 years old shop houses that were built in 1814.
Prior to any restoration process, the buildings were in dilapidated conditions. Most parts were shorn off badly and required to be reinforced additionally to prevent any unforeseen collapses.The upper floors had been converted into 15 residential units, with 5 units fronting Club Street and 10 units in the rear wing facing the courtyard.
In July 1999 ,the Honorable Mr. Mah Bow Tan, Minister for National Development had presented the URA ARCHITECTURAL HERITAGE AWARD to Mr. Lau Wee Soong who, in the eyes of the nation , had gone far beyond the essentials, by restoring these old shop houses to their former glory for today’s use and had upkept the culture of the national heritage.
