City Developments Limited (CDL), a home-grown global real estate operating company, has been a strong supporter of the local arts and heritage scene. A long-time partner of the National Museum of Singapore, CDL supported its special exhibition, Treasures of the World from the British Museum, in 2015. Furthermore, in celebration of the Singapore Botanic Gardens’ successful inscription as Singapore’s first UNESCO World Heritage Site, CDL initiated a fundraising gala dinner. The late Mr Kwek Leng Joo, CDL deputy chairman and an avid photographer also launched a special limited edition photo art book, ‘Embrace’, which showcased images taken by Mr Kwek within the lush grounds of the Gardens. Proceeds from both the gala dinner and the sale of the books went towards supporting the Preservation of Sites and Monuments division of the National Heritage Board (NHB).
