Great design, but a HUGE building to demolish for this project. Clearly the $$ must add up, because the cost of demolition would be huge.

Is it new or a major refurb of the current police building?

Walking around Singapore today and stumbled across a Zaha Hadid exhibition. Went in to check it out and quickly realised they had an agenda with the exibition. The whole things was designed to sell apartments in this building. Over 30% was just models and images of this development. Full sales team. Impressive set up.
