Facts

  • The building stands on the grounds of a colonial mansion that used to function as a hotel.
  • Called Hotel De L'Europe then, the hotel was formerly Dutch-owned. It was at one time frequented by the crew and passengers of the Dutch airline KLM, which gave rise to its nickname. The Cockpit name became official in 1960.
  • In 1972, the present 13-storey structure was built by Indonesian businessman Hoo Liong Thing as an extension to the old one, which had been around since 1947. The old mansion was pulled down a decade later.
  • With its distinctive fan-shaped windows and wrought-iron balconies, and lit by green neon lights at night, the hotel was a landmark.
