The estate of Dakota Crescent, located off Old Airport Road, consists of 14 white blocks of flats of not more than 10 storeys tall, with single room flat design. It was built in 1958 by the Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT) to deal with the increasing population at the Kallang Airport vicinity.
Named after a plane model, Douglas D3-C Dakota, that landed at Kallang Airport in the past, the flats in the estate are fitted with uniques grills and door design which could not be seen in the new housing development flats.
In July 2014, the Housing and Development Board (HDB) announced that Dakota Crescent would be embarked for future residential development. All residents of Dakota Crescent would have to move out by end-2016.
This print is a tribute to the soon-demolish building and served as a resemblance to the early Singapore public housing history.
