THE FULLERTON HERITAGE: WHERE THE PAST MEETS THE PRESENT

SINGAPORE, 30 March 2011 – Senior Minister Goh Chok Tong was the
Guest-of-Honour at a ceremony to commemorate The Fullerton Hotel’s 10th
anniversary today.     Senior Minister Goh was also the Guest-of-Honour to
officiate the opening of the Fullerton Hotel in 2001.


In commemoration of its 10th year anniversary, the hotel which is part of The
Fullerton Heritage, published The Fullerton Heritage: Where the Past Meets
the Present. The book serves to celebrate and pay tribute to the heritage
gems along Singapore’s signature waterfront that had witnessed many
defining moments of the city’s history, and have transformed in tandem with
the city’s progress.


Spanning 1.4 million square feet along the waterfront, The Fullerton Heritage
is an exquisite dining and hospitality complex that combines the historical and
the contemporary. It comprises The Fullerton Hotel, The Fullerton Bay Hotel,
The Fullerton Waterboat House, One Fullerton, Clifford Pier and Customs
House.


“With The Fullerton Heritage, we wanted to bring refreshed and relevant
lifestyle choices to Singaporeans and travellers while upholding and sharing
with guests the historical value and legacy of this significant locale. The
Fullerton Heritage is not only located at a historically significant district. At the
same time, this district is part of the dynamic developments of Marina Bay that
are re-creating Singapore’s skyline,” says Mr. Giovanni Viterale, General
Manager of The Fullerton Heritage. “We published Where the Past Meets the
Present to chronicle the fascinating anecdotes in the history and development
of each of the six properties in The Fullerton Heritage.”


Earlier in July 2010, The Fullerton Heritage had also launched The Fullerton
Heritage Gallery at The Fullerton Hotel to showcase the history and culture of
the precinct. The 800-square foot gallery features displays that include
photographs, maps, stamps and philatelic materials that date back to 1932.


With the support of the National Heritage Board’s Heritage Industry Incentive
Programme (HI²P), The Fullerton Heritage together with the Singapore
Philatelic Museum has further developed The Fullerton Heritage Trail map to
guide visitors on a walking trail to discover firsthand the rich history and
diverse culture of the precinct and the neighbouring civic district.
Complimentary copies of the map will be made available to the public at The
Fullerton Heritage Gallery.


Viterale adds, “Where the Past Meets the Present encapsulates everything
about what the precinct was, is today and will be. It aims to mark the progress
of an area that is an important cornerstone in Singapore’s history.”
