Abstract: As Singapore approaches the predicament of an ageing population by 2020, the unbalanced young-old ratio has given birth to a phenomenon known as the “Return-ment” syndrome, resulting in an increase of elderly presence (>65 years) in the Central Business District (CBD) of Singapore. However, as with all urban spaces, the CBD was not conceived with the objective to include this coming generation of elderly people, much less promote active ageing. The objective of this thesis is to explore the impact of an Ageing population on the urban environment through understanding the demographic profile of this coming generation boom of elderly, and redefining urban public spaces as a catalyst for active ageing. In the study of CBD’s existing patterns, a Mixed-use Residential program is introduced along Cross Street with connections made to the existing Viaduct. Design strategies aim to provide urban connectivity, enhance street walk-ability, promote wellness and health, create multi-levels of urban participation and maximizing opportunities for Active Ageing. The goal of which is to facilitate the inclusion of elderly people in our Urban Environment.
