Over 2,500 Tampines residents gathered at Tampines Stadium today (May 11) morning for Singapore’s largest groundbreaking ceremony, said the People’s Association (PA).
This morning’s ceremony marked the start of works on the country’s first integrated town hub.
Over the past year, more than 15,000 residents took part in focus group discussions, interviews and surveys to put together their vision for the hub.
The hub brings together public services such as the community clubs, regional library and sports facilities under one roof.
It will also adopt a sustainable model for its community spaces that harnesses solar energy and natural rainfall, and reduces heat absorption by external walls.
