Singapore 14 - Queenstown, Commonwealth
The Queenstown housing estate was one of the earliest housing estates developed by the Singapore Improvement Trust (SIT) and subsequently the Housing and Development Boad(HDB). It is the first satellite town in Singapore and a major part of it was developed during the first Five-Year Building Programme (1960-1965). From 1952 to 1968, a toatl of 19,372 dwelling units were constructed. Queenstown was previously an agricultural area. Before the war in 1942, there were hundreds of people living in attap huts cultivating vegetables, growing fruits and rearing pigs and chickens. The British also set up a military camp, known as Buller Camp, in Queenstown. It was not until 1953 when the SIT cleared the camp site and built a housing estate there.
