The Founding of CDL
CDL began in a small, rented office in Amber Mansions on 7 September 1963, staffed by only eight employees, to acquire, develop and sell property. The Company went public in November 1963 and its shares were listed on what was known then as the Malayan Stock Exchange.
The Early Years
In 1965, CDL completed its first housing project, Fresh Breezes in Johor Bahru, and pioneered the “show flat” concept. This was followed by the launch of its first high-rise residential development in Singapore, City Towers, as well as the completion of Phase One of Clementi Park, CDL’s first full condominium concept project, in 1966.
A New Beginning
In 1972, the Hong Leong Group, under the guidance and leadership of founder, the late Mr Kwek Hong Png, acquired a controlling interest in CDL and embarked on a strategic diversification into investment properties. CDL placed its diversification strategy into effect with the acquisition of Guan Realty (Private) Limited in 1972. This newly acquired subsidiary subsequently developed City Plaza, CDL’s first mixed use Development which was completed in 1980.
Singapore Property Pioneer
With the late Mr Kwek’s aspiration and strong business acumen, CDL emerged as a major property developer in Singapore. In the 1980s, CDL launched 21 residential properties and completed 12 investment properties including City House in the heart of the Central Business District, which became CDL’s headquarters.
CDL made its maiden foray into the hospitality industry with the development of King’s Hotel (now Copthorne King’s Hotel Singapore). Orchid Inn (now redeveloped into a residential project – The Glyndebourne) was also bought about this time. This was followed by rapid expansion and regionalisation.
Today, CDL’s hospitality arm, Millennium & Copthorne Hotels plc (M&C) is Singapore’s largest international hotel group and one of the largest hotel owners and operators in the world.
50 Years of Distinction
With over five decades of track record, CDL has built a distinctive legacy of industry leadership and championing green buildings, fueled by our vision to conserve as we construct. We look forward to achieving new milestones as we continue to transform the eco-landscape as well as to set benchmarks in innovation and sustainable developments. And to press on for our biggest reward – a better home for everyone to live in.
Architects for Boulevard 88
At the heart of every design is a consideration of the project’s larger civic role. We have been deeply influenced by, and honored to work among, the widest range of communities and contexts. The buildings we design have become beloved resources for and symbols to the communities that they serve and, in many cases, have become regional and national landmarks.
Our process blurs the boundaries between urban design and architecture. With the understanding that architecture and planning should work in tandem to preserve the human scale and sense of well-being, we’ve proven around the world that high density is not contrary to high amenities of shared gardens, open communal spaces, and access to nature and light.
We do not specialize in one building type. We have extensive experience designing diverse buildings across typologies, including museums, cultural centers, libraries, residential developments, mixed-use centers and transportation hubs. We are able to effectively work on multiple design projects simultaneously because we are unusually nimble and flexible as a firm, adapting quickly without strict specialization. This open structure allows great flexibility and capacity to undertake a wide variety of projects of varying size, typology and complexity.
DP Architects practices as a multidisciplinary design group, One Global Studio, with 1,200 staff, 16 strategically linked international offices from Shanghai to London, 8 associated specialist companies, with a reach of 77 countries around the world.
As the practice of architecture becomes broader and more encompassing, DP recognises the potential of specialisation in our pursuit of a holistic design solution. DP provides a suite of integrated design services through our specialist consultancies.
Since its inception in 1967, DP has designed many of the country’s most important public projects and notable landmarks. Each of these has played a critical role in shaping Singapore’s civic urban landscape and downtown core, by linking spaces of the city in the formation of a continuous urban fabric.
These sites serve as social and cultural anchors for Singapore and as public nodes of human density that have contributed greatly to the city’s success. DP has also been involved with urban projects of immense scale and increasing diversity of function; some of the firm’s works are the largest of their type in the world.
