Abstract: The main focus of this research paper is to explore the potentiality of redeveloping brownfield in Singapore. Understanding critical issues like land scarcity of this nation, an immediate approach towards reusing such abandoned and contaminated property is extremely important. However, as brownfield concept in Singapore is new, it is primarily constructed in literature review of a more experiencing country, the United States of America. Following that, the paper then employed a case study of the Old Changi Hospital, interviews with Environmental Resources Management Company as well as different land-use authorities plus actual reports for researching methodology. The knowledge obtained from the literature review, combined with field study information subsequently collected, shall finally deliver a planning process for each of the redevelopment options. In the end, several proposals are made in relation to the case study with their positive impacts plus negative possibilities against local economic, environmental and social living. The recommendation is yet not tested as the justification process could only cover surfacing brainstorming process and data collected. Challenges involved lack of real data or native references and the probably low contamination level of the site chosen, for which apparently its outcome cannot be tested against the international contamination standards.
