Singapore's first public integrated development to be extensively designed with elderly-friendly features was officially opened by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Saturday (May 12).

The 11-storey Kampung Admiralty, located next to Admiralty MRT station, houses about 100 flats for seniors, along with healthcare, wellness and commercial facilities like a supermarket and hawker centre, all under one roof.

The pilot project, which was conceptualised by the Housing and Development Board more than four years ago, aims to encourage active living among seniors, as well as inter-generational bonding.
