A former military parade square in Sentosa will be turned into a hotel by Far East Organization, adding to the island's cluster of repurposed conservation buildings.

The developer said on Wednesday that it trumped three other submissions to win the tender for the 60-year leasehold hotel site at Artillery Avenue from the Sentosa Development Corporation.

The site is on elevated ground and overlooks the Palawan Beach and the sea off the southern end of Sentosa.

It includes six blocks of barracks and a coach park. The military parade square and the barracks have been gazetted for conservation.
