The 90th Anniversary of the Fullerton Building with Fullerton Concours d’Elegance

The Fullerton Building celebrates their 90thanniversary with a unique three-day event to showcase their heritage and the rich history that comes with it for guests to awe at.

Fullerton Concours d’Elegance eagerly opened their inaugural three-day celebration of the Fullerton Building to guests and visitors at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore. The iconic building was built in 1928 and gazetted as a National Monument on 7December 2015 in recognition of its pivotal role in Singapore’s history. 30,000 visitors saw a multifaceted experience that embodies The Fullerton Hotel Singapore’s rich heritage and fine hospitality the Fullerton brand is known for. There was something for everyone – from car aficionados and art lovers, to photography enthusiasts, foodies, history buffs or anyone looking for something fun to do over this weekend.

Honorary guests Mr Lim Eng Hwee, CEO of the Urban Redevelopment Authority and Deputy Chairman of Sino Group, Mr Daryl Ng, were present to present the plaque to the public.

During this historic milestone event, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore unveiled a commemorative plaque, which was embedded into the hotel grounds during the Opening Ceremony. The plaque features the milestone system adopted circa 1909, with the Fullerton Building marked as ‘Mile Zero’, from which key roads and other milestones were mapped out. The location of the plaque is especially significant, as it is located at the former entrance of the General Post Office.

26 classic cars owned by discerning private collectors in Singapore and Malaysia competed in the preeminent Concours d’Elegance. The cars were judged on criteria including originality and authenticity, restoration quality, design and styling, and elegance in three categories, namely Pre-World War II Vintage, Post War Classic (1945 to 1960) and Modern Classic (1961 to 1983).

This is the modern Classic Winner and Best in Show, the Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet tahun 1971 milik Dato’ Jaya J B Tan proudly sits for all to see and admire.

The winners of the three competition were Best in Class (Pre-World War II Vintage): 1926 Rolls-Royce Twenty Connaught Tourer by Larry Lim; Best in Class (Post War Classic): 1953 MG TD by Derek Addison; Best in Class (Modern Classic): 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet by Dato’ Jaya J B Tan; and BEST IN SHOW: 1971 Mercedes-Benz 280SE 3.5 Cabriolet by Dato’ Jaya J B Tan. A 1967 #Jaguar E-Type Series 1.5 Roadster was also crowned as the “Crowd Favourite” award winning the hearts of many.

Along with admiring the private collection of some of the most unique and never seen automobiles, car enthusiasts also saw for the first time the Bugatti Chiron Sport, making its debut in Asia at the event and the Rolls-Royce Celestial Phantom, Rolls-Royce Dawn Black Badge as well as a recently restored Rolls-Royce Phantom II debuting for the first time in Southeast Asia.

To have a tasty commemoration of the Fullerton Hotel, The Fullerton Hotel Culinary Team created the Fullerton Concours d’Elegance cocktail, and the ‘Mile Zero Series’ that includes a cocktail, mocktail and the ultimate celebratory cake which comprises layers of rich chocolate mousse perfectly balanced with tart rosella cremeux, to celebrate this significant milestone.

The “Mile Zero Series” is a complete chocolate palate including a ocktail, mocktail and the ultimate celebratory cake that will have everyone singing praises of chocolatey delight.

Post Bar at The Fullerton Hotel Singapore has also specially created the Heritage Platter, featuring classic local favourites such as chicken satay, crispy chilli crabmeat bun and Peranakan delight kueh pie tee.

Visitors could have joined the ‘After Dark Monumental Heritage Tours’, organised in collaboration with the Preservation of Sites and Monuments Board, to discover the rich history of The Fullerton Heritage precinct and the Fullerton Building. There were also fun family activities organised by LEGO and Tamiya and photographers can hone their skills with workshops done by Leica featuring acclaimed local professional photographer KC Eng. Visitors also viewed a special art exhibition of cars and the Fullerton Building by renowned artist Stephen Peng, presented by Gallery NaWei.

The Award Ceremony Gala Dinner was held to help raise money for the President’s Challenge and celebrate a wondrous milestone of the Fullerton Building.

This once-in-a-lifetime event also held an auction to help raise money for the President’s Challenge. At an Award Ceremony Gala Dinner, guests bid on a variety of items, including an exquisite timepiece from Audemars Piguet and specially commissioned paintings by Stephen Peng. The Gala ended up raising SGD 200,000 for the President’s Challenge and will go to organisations such as Association for Persons with Special Needs and Dyslexia Association of Singapore.

The Fullerton Concours d’Elegance helped bring history come alive for visitors and to commemorate 90 years of the Fullerton Building. This event was held from 29thJune to 1stJuly across the entire Fullerton Heritage precinct and to keep celebrating this momentous occasion, The Fullerton Hotel Singapore will continue to host a series of year-round events that will be debuting for months to come.
