One of the oldest residential estates in Singapore, many blocks of Pre World War II flats were preserved for conservation in this estate. However, Tiong Bahru has now been transformed into one of the hippest neighborhood. What started with just the opening of a coffee joint and an indie bookstore has led to a list of trendy cafes and cool retail stores. Nearby, Zouk, Singapore’s most popular nightclub that ranks 5th globally, is bustling with activity among the 3 clubs it houses – Zouk, Phuture and Velvet Underground. To cater to residents, there are also malls like Tiong Bahru Plaza and Great World City where supermarkets, retail and dining amenities are available. For families, parents can choose from schools within the area, including Zhangde Primary School, Radin Mas Primary School, Gan Eng Seng Secondary School and Henderson Secondary School. Besides existing apartments such as The Metropolitan, Central Green, Tanglin Regency and Emerald Park condominium, the completion of Highline Residences will allow more citizens to enjoy the facilities offered in Tiong Bahru.
