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, in 1973. Occupying 1.0 hectare in the heart of Chinatown, the People's Park Complex was the largest shopping complex in the shopping commercial belt along Eu Tong Sen Street and New Bridge Road.On 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.

  • 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.
  • There are many travel agencies in this building. Many of the tours are towards mainland China. There are many Northeastern and Central Chinese cuisines outside the building. It is worth a visit for trying Chinese cuisine without going to mainland China.
  • Not your orchard road style shopping center. It is quite unique as a good place to shop and near china town for tourist
  • A great shopping mail with everything u need. From popular travel agency to great food..that will suit individual.
  • People's Park Complex 珍珠坊 A commercial shopping building with details and residential. Many handphone shops, massage and foot massage parlor, medicine halls and many other. Caution before buying and watch out your belonging. Last update Apr2017
