People's Park Complex, Singapore
(3.1/5 based on 55+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • These eateries I like. For $3 you can get a great duck with rice or noodles, or any other Chinese, Vietnamese or Singaporean food. The purity of the space is not a God-knows-what, but even more authentic it is. Definitely recommend it.

  • Go here to get massages. So many stores and reasonable prices too. They all seem to be run by the same owner. There's a food court and small fruit stands, pretty good selections. Other than that, this mall doesn't seem to have much to do here.
  • I came here to transmit funds to China through 汉生汇款 HanShan Money Express located at Level 2. One of the best rates island wide for transmitting money to China. At level 1 Foodcourt, there is a stall.selling chinese crusine. Great food at reasonable prices
  • Sibeh Jialat place. Too crowded. Can be jialat some more.
  • The food court is bristling with Chinese locals and foreigners ordering Ma La Xiang Guo, where you choose meat and vegetables before they are all stir-fried in an oil/spice concoction that numbs your tongue. Grab a beer (or sugarcane with lemon if you are the nonalcoholic kind of person) and some friends to enjoy a very Singaporean experience!
  • China town is famous and attracting many people to visit but shops there are many for tourists except the local food court locate at second floor. Opposite to China town, here the shopping mall and food court stalls are more local, food diversity is also huge, and price are local as well. If you are tired with China town, you can try this complex as well.
