#52 of 200 in Shopping in Singapore
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.

  • 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!
  • Cheap and yummy food. You'll find a wide range of authentic chinese cuisines at super economical prices here. Crowded on weekends though.
  • One of my favorite places, lots of little stores selling wide variety of goods, some hard to find. Food court. Good prices.
  • A nice part of Singapore to be visited.....lots of variety of old shops and eatery places there! A vibrant place and lots of people every day and night! Interesting place , only rather warm during hot afternoon at the food center as only fans inside. Other than that rather unique place in this fast moving modern city!
  • Mostly crowded with PRC visitors. Hawker center on ground floor serves mostly Chinese street food and stalls run by PRC citizen. The spicy Mala food is good and reasonable. Order are by serving than by weight. The Chinese salad of mixed meat and veggies are also good, if you don't mind the food presentation.
