Abandoned Singapore: Mediacorp Caldecott Broadcast Centre

Nestled among the quiet residential streets of Caldecott Hill lie the remains of Singapore’s Mediacorp Caldecott Broadcast Centre. From radio to TV, the broadcast station played a pivotal role in the development of Singapore’s media scene. Radio-Television Singapore, the precursor to today’s Mediacorp, opened its new Television Studio Centre in 1966, which at the time was one of the best TV studios in Asia.

After 63 years of operation, the Centre finally closed it’s doors for good in December 2017, having moved to their shiny new home at Mediapolis in One-North. The site now lies in a state of disrepair – photographed here in 2018 – waiting for its future development.

The iconic Radio House (above) was completed in 1975, whose tower can be seen from afar.
