History of Tampines
Tampines was named after the ‘Tempinis’ tree which grew abundantly in the area.

In its early days, farmers and villagers in scattered squatter settlements dotted its otherwise barren landscape. A visitor to Tampines in the 1970s would have been greeted by undulating hillocks and deep craters formed as a result of sand quarrying. At its peak, there were more than 26 sand quarries in the area. The high plains in the vicinity were cut away to further level the area, resulting in 45 million m3 of sand that was later used as fill material for the East Coast Reclamation project.

Evolving Through The Years
In the early stages of the town’s development, HDB took over 10 years to resettle around 3,720 villagers to make way for the infrastructure works.

HDB began to develop Tampines Town in the early 1980s. The planning of Tampines Town was based on the Neighbourhood and Precinct Planning Concept. The first housing precinct was built at Tampines Neighbouhood 2 to mark a milestone in the evolution of HDB’s residential development typology in the early years of HDB history. The Town Centre was planned as an hourglass shape to create a unique urban design form for the town.

In October 1992, Tampines Town was awarded the World Habitat Award in the Developed Country Category by the Building and Social Housing Foundation (BSHF) of the United Nations. The award recognises innovative and successful human settlements.

Tampines Town has been designated as a regional centre since the early 1990s. Today, Tampines Town has one of the most developed regional centres, serving the Eastern part of Singapore.

In September 2013, HDB launched the ‘Future Homes, Better Lives’ exhibition for 3 new development
