Tampines Town

Parktown Residences at Tampines Town

Tampines Town is a vibrant and bustling residential and commercial hub located in the eastern region of Singapore. It stands as one of the largest planning areas and residential towns in the country, known for its comprehensive amenities, excellent connectivity, and strategic urban planning. Parktown Residences is situated within this dynamic landscape, offering its residents an enriched lifestyle in a town filled with diverse opportunities.

Tampines derives its name from the “tempinis” tree, which was once common in the area. Historically, the region was covered by forests and swamps and served primarily as a source of timber and a base for plantations and farms. In the 1980s, Tampines underwent significant redevelopment as part of the government’s plan to decentralize Singapore’s urban areas. Tampines New Town emerged as a model for regional planning, showcasing how well-planned towns can flourish. The establishment of the Tampines Regional Centre in the early 1990s marked a pivotal moment in Tampines’ evolution, creating a regional hub to decentralize commercial activities from the Central Business District (CBD).

Today, Tampines Town remains a prime example of comprehensive urban development, offering a range of residential options from public Housing and Development Board (HDB) flats to private condominiums and landed properties. The town is renowned for its well-planned neighborhoods, each equipped with schools, parks, and healthcare facilities. The recent extension of Tampines Town into Tampines North has expanded the housing landscape further. With developments like Parktown Residences, Tampines North aims to offer an integrated and family-friendly living environment that complements the existing neighborhoods.

Commercially, Tampines is a thriving hub with one of the most comprehensive retail landscapes outside of the city center. The Tampines Regional Centre houses several large shopping malls, providing a one-stop destination for retail, dining, and entertainment. Tampines Mall is one of Singapore’s largest suburban malls, offering over 160 stores across six floors, with a comprehensive mix of retail, dining, and entertainment options. Nearby Century Square, renovated and reopened in 2018, caters to families with retail, dining, and entertainment options. Tampines 1, directly connected to Tampines MRT Station, offers a trendy blend of fashion, food, and fun for all ages.

In addition to these malls, Our Tampines Hub stands out as Singapore’s largest integrated community and lifestyle hub. It features over 100 retail outlets, sports facilities, a library, and even a performing arts theater. Eastpoint Mall, near Simei MRT Station, features over 100 stores and is known for its family-friendly environment. At Tampines Retail Park, residents have access to the Giant Hypermarket, IKEA, and Courts Megastore, offering comprehensive home furnishings, electronics, and household products.

Tampines Town is also well-connected to the rest of Singapore through a comprehensive public transport network and major expressways. The MRT system plays a crucial role, with the Tampines MRT Station serving both the East-West Line and Downtown Line, providing direct connectivity to the CBD. The Tampines East and Tampines West MRT Stations, part of the Downtown Line, offer alternative routes to the CBD and the northwestern regions. The upcoming Tampines North MRT Station, set to open on the Cross Island Line (CRL), will connect residents to key destinations like Changi Airport, the city center, and Jurong Lake District.

Public transport in Tampines is further enhanced by the Tampines Bus Interchange, an integrated hub with extensive bus routes connecting residents to various parts of Singapore. For those who prefer to drive, major expressways like the Pan-Island Expressway (PIE), Tampines Expressway (TPE), and Kallang-Paya Lebar Expressway (KPE) provide seamless connectivity.

Tampines is home to a range of reputable educational institutions, making it an ideal location for families. Primary and secondary schools include Poi Ching School, St. Hilda’s Primary and Secondary Schools, Gongshang Primary School, and Tampines Primary and Secondary Schools. Tertiary institutions like Temasek Polytechnic, the Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), and ITE College East also offer higher education opportunities. International schools like Overseas Family School (OFS) and United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA – East Campus) add to the educational diversity of the region.

For recreation, Tampines provides numerous parks and facilities that promote a balanced and healthy lifestyle. Tampines Eco Green is a natural park featuring bird-watching spots, hiking trails, and freshwater ponds. Bedok Reservoir Park offers water sports, jogging trails, and relaxation areas. Sun Plaza Park, a family-friendly park, is equipped with fitness equipment, a playground, and a barbecue area. Our Tampines Hub provides sports facilities, including a swimming complex, gym, and futsal courts.

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) Master Plan emphasizes sustainable and inclusive growth in Tampines. Future developments include improved cycling and jogging paths, expanded green spaces, and enhanced public transportation networks. Tampines North will feature a new town plaza, mixed-use developments, and additional recreational facilities.

Parktown Residences aligns perfectly with these sustainability initiatives, incorporating green building designs, renewable energy systems, and landscaped sky gardens. The development’s integrated community facilities, like the hawker center and community club, promote social interaction and a strong sense of community.

In addition to the existing retail and recreational amenities, Tampines Town is also a commercial hub, offering abundant employment opportunities. Major office buildings like Telepark and Tampines Concourse house a range of businesses, while the nearby Changi Business Park adds to the employment base of the area.

Healthcare facilities in Tampines include Changi General Hospital, St. Andrew’s Community Hospital, and several polyclinics. These facilities provide comprehensive healthcare services, ensuring that residents have access to quality medical care whenever needed.

In conclusion, Tampines Town is a dynamic urban landscape that offers an exceptional range of residential, commercial, and recreational amenities.

By providing thoughtfully designed homes, exclusive facilities, and vibrant community spaces, Parktown Residences promises a holistic and enriching lifestyle in the heart of Tampines North.
