The 0.83ha former Bukit Timah Fire Station (BTFS) dates back to the 1950s, and is the last remaining of three fire stations which were built as part of the post-World War II expansion of Singapore’s Fire Brigade.

UPDATE: Due to the current COVID-19 situation, the deadline for the submission of Expressions of Interest for the former Bukit Timah Fire Station site has been extended to 30 April 2020. We thank the teams for your continued support and participation in these challenging times.

The site consists of the main Fire Station building, seven three-storey accommodation blocks for firefighters, and a single-storey residence for the Station Master. 
BTFS is strategically located at the crossroads of the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve to the east and Bukit Batok Nature Park to the west, as well as two key recreational corridors – the Rail Corridor and the Coast-to-Coast Trail.

The site is well-served by multiple public bus routes along Upper Bukit Timah Road and its island-wide connectivity will be enhanced with the completion of the Hume Station on the Mass Rapid Transit’s (MRT) Downtown Line in 2025. 
With its lush green setting, rich heritage and excellent public transport reach, Singapore is looking to transform BTFS into a gateway community node for visitors of all ages and abilities to enjoy nature, heritage and adventure. The existing BTFS buildings are to be repurposed with new uses, and curated together with public spaces to encourage community interaction.

The site should also feature innovative and environmentally-sustainable urban solutions that achieve zero-energy or even positive-energy goals above and beyond today’s national standards, as a demonstration of Singapore’s commitment to sustainable urban development.


Expected program

An integrated mixed-use gateway node to nature, heritage and adventure, which may include “Live, Work and Play” elements. Bidding teams should propose suitable uses to adaptively reuse the existing buildings, and leverage on BTFS’ unique green setting and strategic location to facilitate greater community interaction. Proposals should also consider how pedestrian connectivity to the surrounding areas could be enhanced to improve the overall attractiveness of the site.


The land and buildings within the BTFS site are owned by the State.
