Abstract: This study examines the vision of a 'Quality Urban Residential Area and Maritime Centre' at Telok Blangah area (the subject site). In this study, it is found that subject site has not achieved as a 'Quality Urban Residential Area and Maritime Centre' at the current moment. The subject site lacks of efficient public transport (MRT transportation is not in operation), neighbourhood convenience, appearance of the neighbourhood and social environment to be considered as quality urban residential area. The research area also lacks of essential elements to be classified as a maritime centre. These elements are recreational activities, shopping centre, theme of 'marina' and hotels. It is recommended to introduce marina village and resort hotel to enhance the exiting status of the research area. The study also finds that government intervention to develop the subject area into a 'Quality Urban Residential Area and Maritime Centre' is essential. This is evident by the construction of North-East MRT line and the proposed HarbourFront Development next to the subject site. The traditional trade to the research area can also effect the development of the area. In order to enhance the traditional use of tourism industry, this area has been encouraged to be developed as a maritime centre. Lastly, with the exercise of proper planning and control, it is observed that the waterfront area at the Telok Blangah area can be a valuable asset.
