People's Park Complex is a high-rise commercial and residential building on Eu Tong Sen Street in Outram, within People's Park in Singapore.HistoryThe People's Park Complex was a commercial housing project undertaken by the newly formed Urban Renewal Department of the Housing and Development Board's Sale of Sites programme. The project was the subject of the programme's first sale in 1967.Located at the foot of Pearl's Hill, the site where the People's Park Complex currently stands was an open public park. It later became the People's Market or Pearl's Market with outdoor stalls which was destroyed by a fire in 1966.With a height of 103 metres (338 feet), the 31-storey People's Park Complex building was the first shopping centre of its kind in Southeast Asia and set the pattern for later retail developments in Singapore. The shopping centre was completed in October 1970, while the residential block was completed in 1973. Occupying 1 hectare in the heart of Chinatown, the People's Park Complex was the largest shopping complexes in the shopping commercial belt along Eu Tong Sen Street and New Bridge Road.2010 FireOn 21 April 2010, a storeroom on the fifth floor caught fire, resulting in a huge blaze and with hunted corners and triggering a massive evacuation. No-one was hurt in the incident, but substantial damage was reported by tenants caused by soot and water leakage. The Singapore Civil Defence Force (SCDF) subsequently found that the presence of such storerooms on that floor were not authorized; in breach of fire safety regulations.

  • There are a lot of small stores here where you can find all kinds of junk. It is connected to a large outdoor food court. Also is within close walking distance to the subway line and several Buddhist temples. Place is not very clean, and bathrooms were disgusting.
  • Lot of massage & cheap reflexology parlours.massage price start from $40 for 1 hour & reflexology price start from $23-$30 for an hour depending of which parlour you visit.As I personally always visit this shop to have good reflexology and decent price $23.You cannot find anyway in Singapore for just $23 for an hour foot massage...
  • Crowded on lunch time & weekend. Complex conveniently served the communities & tourists. Retails of the 60's with residents above & had since changes business to more Travel agency, money changer, remittance, jewellery shops, foot reflexology & food oulets.
  • Take a chance to visit a hidden cafe at the rooftop of People's park complex. There you could also take some photos with the view of rooftop and the apartment buildingZ sich an experience. To go to the cafe, take elevator/lift to level 5, than you take stair from the emergency exit to level 6. You'll see the catchy sign there. It's not closed, just slide the door, they're open :)
  • This place is funny. A bit like mainland China. Good fopd. A random mix of stores a d lots of surprises. Great for big nap, currency exchange and random mainland style food.
