It was obviated in 1962 when the National Capital Commission (NCC) expropriated the Flats for its grandiose but yet-to-be-defined-fifty-years-later plan. The problem is not...

This aerial comparison of Lebreton Flats and a simulation from Google Earth shows two Lebreton Flats radically different. The archival photo clearly shows the industrial past of the Flats with its numerous light industries and rails in its western section (top of the image). Now that the LRT...
