Abstract: In recent times, Singapore has seen a gradual repopulation of its city centre motivated by the government’s attempt to re-energize the CBD area and the community’s changing lifestyle. This is manifested in the rise of high-end condominium projects that would ride on the anticipated boom in luxury rentals. It is predicted that the greater live-in population will bring vibrancy to a previously homogeneous commercial landscape. Tanjong Pagar is the epicenter of this urban condition, which will be even more critical in the future with its connection to the proposed Greater Southern Waterfront after 2030. We are confronted with the challenge of establishing a new community in the city. However, the identity and presence of our local community is at stake in an age when economics increasingly takes precedence over everything else. This paper will seek to address the importance of this dramatic urban change and the need for moderation through community interest and traditional considerations. I have conducted a study of the importance of our inner-city streets and their social value, as well as the need for the human dimension in city planning. The goal is to identify important social-oriented urban instruments, which are essential to take our urban landscape beyond the criterion of commodification and give meaning to our existence in the city.
