Testimony to local heritage preservation battle
Battle of heritage preservation
The eye-catching two storey Portuguese style villa is a testimony to local heritage preservation. In 2006, the Blue House was proposed to redevelop into a 14-storey office tower. The plan was strongly opposed by local residents, as they felt the Blue House represented a piece of irreplaceable memory of the past, while so much of their heritage had already been lost to casinos and hotels. That’s why the blue house is still here today.
Nice to know
Until the 1980’s the Blue House was actually pink.
