Abstract: While adaptive reuse and conservation is not a new concept in Singapore, attention towards such concepts have been increasing over the years. The Draft Master Plan 2019 includes themes such as revitalising Singapore’s built heritage and provide a fresh use for such assets. This promotes a greater sense of identity. Thus, adaptive reuse is an efficient method to alleviate residents’ quality of life with a greater variety of recreational and educational activities while retaining built heritage. Furthermore, tourists’ experience will be enhanced with more opportunities to experience Singapore’s history and heritage. However, there are limited studies on the perspectives and demand of end-users. Moreover, there are limited research to compare between the different redevelopment approaches on revitalising built heritage and how they cater to the visitors’ expectations and demands. Therefore, this study offers insights through comparison between redevelopment models and visitors’ perception of them. This study surveys 300 visitors across three different redevelopment approaches on the reason behind visiting rehabilitated precincts, their satisfaction with it, suggested areas of improvements and demands for such redevelopments. Next, interviews are conducted with the management bodies and shop owners to gain insights on the rationale behind the redevelopment approach. Findings reveal that having large-scale and more frequent traditional and heritage events are top factors for a rehabilitated precinct to be successful. However, there are diverse opinions across ages on other factors for a sustainable adaptive reuse. The youths prefer more entertainment, and frequent arts and cultural events such as arts bazaar or workshops.
