Three welfare groups and an arts group will set up offices in a central mall at a discount, the latest beneficiaries of a scheme to provide space in commercial buildings for community use.
They are among 58 groups that have gained from the Community and Sports Facilities Scheme (CSFS) since its launch by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) in 2003.
Most are voluntary welfare organisations (VWO), such as the Breast Cancer Foundation Singapore, Life Community Services Society and Touch Community Services. These three will be moving soon into Leisure Park Kallang. The latest of 25 commercial buildings under the scheme, the Kallang mall will also host Wild Rice, the theatre company.
The four groups will occupy 20,000 sq ft of space on the mall's fourth level. Renovation is ongoing and the spaces are slated to be ready by end-June.
