Lido Cineplex - The site of Shaw House and Lido Theatre was originally part of Grant No. 23 from the East India Company to William Scott on 2 April 1845. When Shaw House was acquired by Shaw and Shaw Pte Ltd in January 1952, it was nothing but vacant land with an Esso petrol station. This half million square feet of land was levelled by the Shaws for redevelopment in December 1956. Piling started in February 1957 and the whole complex, comprising some 118,000 square feet on ten storeys obtained its Certificate of Fitness on 28th January 1958. The original Shaw House was declared officially opened by Mr Lim Yew Hock on 22 November 1958. The old Lido has since been renovated into the current 22-storey Shaw House (Lido Theatre) that opened in 1993 after three years of reconstruction.
