Just like many other regions in Singapore, Queenstown is a planning region as well as a satellite residential city located on the southern-west the Central District of Singapore. It is bordered by Bukit Timah to its north, Tanglin to its northern east and Bukit Merah to its eastern. To its northern west there lays Clementi. The region borders Selat Pandan on its south westernmost area. The region was developed by the Singapore improvement trust back in the 1950s and 1960s in collaboration with the housing and development board (HDM). This was one of the first satellite cities to be set up in Singapore. The region has a range of simple housing units which are, single, double or three rooms. Between the year 1960 and 1965 numerous buildings were constructed in the region to accommodate the rising demand. Queenstown was once a large swampy area which extended to the south eastern direction. It was bordered by hills that include Feng Xing and Feng ling.
The name Queenstown originated from the Queen Elizabeth 11. This was aimed at marking the coronation of Queen Elizabeth 11 in the year 1952. Before then, the region was identified by the Mandarin Chinese name. Queenstown is home to the famous arterial road Queensway which was named in the year 1954. A major problem with the housing unit was experienced in the year 1947. This was because there was insufficient housing around Singapore. This led to a major decentralization of the people living in the city. This was done by setting up self-contained residential units in the outer regions. It was speculated that the move was aimed at influencing new city movements after the Britain war. The Queenstown region is a major building block to Singapore and plays a major role in contributing to the economy. It is one of the major regions in Singapore.

David Lee was very prompt, he is honest and his workmanship is very professional. Takes pride in his skill and he went the extra mile to help me tighten my wooden door (screws were loose due to fair wear and tear), my padlock and even helped me drill a hole on the floor for my wooden door side panel to secure the door. Very satisfied with the service provided and would highly recommend his service to others.read more
