Queenstown: Eye Level and High Level

Singapore's first satellite town has seen a lot of history, but it still continues to make history. When the Singapore Improvement Trust first planned Queenstown in the 1950s, it replaced a cluster of kampongs and cemeteries with a bold new vision of modern, progressive housing set amidst generous greenery and endowed with plentiful amenities. Since then, Queenstown has matured into a vibrant town, and will continue to evolve, as new developments and new residents are brought to the existing community through Government Land Sales, Selective Enbloc Redevelopment and Remaking Our Heartlands. What do these changes mean to longtime Queenstowners and their community? And what role has urban planning played (and will continue to play) in shaping Queenstown?

Join this tour to walk the streets and plazas of Queenstown, and to take in the lay of the land from some of the tallest HDB buildings in Singapore. Learn how urban planning works in Singapore, and how it shapes everyday life in a real community. Download the "Masterplan 2014 - Singapore" app in your Apple or Android device and follow along as we use the map to read Queenstown's urban structure and to decipher what is in store for Queenstown.

This walk is led by Urban Planner Daniel Leong.
