History of Jalan Tembusu . Marine Parade
Marine Parade is a residential and planning area located in Singapore’s central region. The bordering planning areas are Singapore Straits to the south, Bedok to the northeast, Marina East to the southwest, Geylang to the north, and Kallang to the northwest. It straddles the tip of the southeastern coast of Pulau Ujong and serves as a barrier between the east and central regions of the city-state.
The history of the Marine Parade is associated with the Katong neighbourhood. Before the government reclaimed it, Marine Parade was an extension of Katong. It witnessed its growth in Straits Chinese culture and developed a unique architectural design; it even became the source of the Katong Laksa Dish. Today, Marine Parade consists of mainly residential flats on its southernmost points built after the east coast island was reclaimed.
Land reclamation works at Marine Parade began in 1966 as part of a multiphase government project. In 1970, 405 hectares of land had been reclaimed. And by 1985, almost 1525 hectares had been reclaimed, including the east coast’s recreational coastline, which expanded the area by 18 kilometres. Marine Parade was the first housing estate built entirely on reclaimed land.
The government unveiled development plans for Marine Parade in 1981. The goal was to construct an expressway that would connect Marine Parade and other housing estates on the east coastline to the city. Commercial and recreational areas and public amenities were also built to add vibrancy to Marine Parade.
The first estate development phase was complete by the end of 1973. It included the construction of markets, shops, offices, and 6000 units. The plan for the second phase of the project was to add more community and commercial facilities, including more shops, a post office, public housing, a library, and school hawker centres.
In the 1980s, Marine Parade was the most desirable place to live in because of its seafront, recreational and commercial facilities, and its ambience. Marine Parade was the first estate in Singapore to undergo the government’s scheme, Main Upgrading Program to upgrade ageing sites in 1992.
Today Marina Parade is a well-established residential area with fantastic food, adequate amenities, and historical precincts, all at an accessible range. The site is planned to be self-sufficient and liveable with accessible health care, shops, schools, community parks, and facilities.
Marina Parade, an area that was once an extension of another precinct, is now a self-sufficient residential and planning area with easily accessible amenities. Upcoming developments under the URA master plan will improve the rank of this area in Singapore’s economy.
