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.

  • This place is becoming a little China. So many stalls selling China style local food at reasonable economical prices. Very competitive in a very cohesive manner. You can also find many foreign nationals experiencing the local favours here besides the China Chinese and Singaporean Chinese. A very different gastronomic experience indeed!!!
  • One stop solution place. If you are hungry and food lovers, you can try many food stalls in Basement floor. If you want to sleep, you can rent the apartments around there with cheap price and clean room. If you want to shop souvenirs, many local people sell them, MRT Chinatown Exit A. I love this place. Food Heaven for me. I always stay there if I visit Singapore :))
  • You may find many money exchangers and China Chinese food on the first level of this building, while the second and third levels are full of travel agencies and massage stalls. You may find cheap watch or luggage stores in this building too. The food store (hawker center called locally) next door is full of nice food and has great range of selection. Furthermore on the fourth level of this building there is a newly opened Chinese supermarket which has loads of cheap but good food and drink stuff, especially probably the cheapest beer you may find on this island! On the top of this building is a super hot instagram photo spot. It is a car park with great view and nice reflection “pond”, if it rains for a while. Go and check it out!
  • Quite an old building, nothing much there actually. The food court down there is excellent. So many stalls, and offering variety of foods. The price and serving portion is GOOD!
  • Old shopping centre that has not quite caught up with times. Also it has not quite managed to retain the old charms. Wide selection of money changers and a few good food places. One of the stores offer reasonable roast ducks.
