Abstract: The conservation-redevelopment dilemma has always been a recurring topic in Singapore. The efficient use of land is crucial and several studies have been done to assess conservation efforts of various areas in Singapore. However, no significant research has been done focusing on Balestier. The objective of this study is to examine the commercial aspects of urban conservation in Balestier and come up with recommendations to improve conservation efforts. The pitfalls and the factors needed for the success of conservation were explored. Through the use of qualitative analysis, the demographics and views of the patrons in Balestier are studied and recommendations were provided. This study involved the use of two statistical methods, namely the Descriptive Statistics and One-way Analysis of Variance (ANOVA). The results of this study mirror the findings in existing literature that prove conservation is an intricate task, where careful consideration is needed. This was shown in the study where some areas in which conservation efforts in Balestier may be improved on were highlighted. For instance, the study found that the proliferation of motels, home furnishing/lighting shops and convenience stores were viewed to be inappropriate to the character of Balestier. This study found that the aesthetics and maintenance of the area is of particular importance to the younger generation. Results also indicated the positive sentiment that the public has towards urban conservation of Balestier. However, it was found that more work had to be done to improve the appeal of conserved areas. Lastly, the study found that majority of respondents believed that conservation efforts should be carried out with the assistance of the public, which validates existing literature.
