Immigration patterns were also influenced by local conditions and changes in lifestyle. One of these was the opening of the Manukau immigration Port in the mid-19th century. Several Chinese localities began to settle here, taking advantage of the cheaper rates charged by the British and immigrating to Australia.
The arrival of the British in Singapore in the 19th century led to the creation of what is now known as Tengah Town. Its rise in importance as a trading post and later, a town developed around a Chinese fishing port and shipping center made it the center of trade and industry for the region.

Tengah and Its Five Housing Districts: Plantation, Garden, Park, Brickland, and Forest Hill
Centrally bounded by neighboring districts, namely Choa Chu Kang, Bukit Panjang, Jurong West, and the Western Water Catchment, the 700-hectare town that is roughly the size of Bishan town consists of five unique housing districts, namely Plantation, Garden, Park, Brickland, and Forest Hill – all with distinctive designs according to their distinct character.
The first public housing development at the new Tengah town, namely Plantation Grove, is situated in the Plantation District, as it is the first out of five districts to be built by HDB. The Plantation Grove that was launched in 2018 aims to provide a peaceful and homely environment for the homeowners, with the residents being able to take advantage of the Forest Fringe, a 15- to 20-meter wide linear green that adds serenity and tranquility to the atmosphere; and the Plantation Farm-way, a recreational passageway perfect for community farming and gardening. Upon completion, the Plantation District is expected to have around 10,000 new homes covering about 90 hectares in the southern part of the town.
Meanwhile, the Tengah Garden District at Tengah EC with over 6,000 new flats upon completion occupies an area of 80 hectares, about the size of the Botanic Gardens. This district with a garden-themed farm-way complements the ambiance of an urban sanctuary that is framed by Tengah Pond and Central Park, promoting communal activities and active living. It is also where the Garden Vale Tengah stands, the very first project completed in May 2019, creating grove-like spaces through the abundant landscaping and relaxing wooden courtyards complementing the surroundings.

It is said to be the heart and hub of the town. This district is also the home of Singapore’s first car-free town center, where recreational and retail use will have a free space at the ground level while the roads are planned to run beneath it, providing safety to the residents who wish to cycle or walk. Like the first two districts, Park District showcases greenery with its numerous green spaces, such as the Central Park and Forest Corridor. The farm-ways within the district cover about 600 meters long and 40 meters wide on average.
The other two districts where residential projects are yet to be finished are the Brickland District and the Forest Hill District. While the Brickland District situated next to Choa Chu Kang is said to be similar to the town’s industrial history in crafting bricks to give off a unique element to the estate, the Forest Hill District set near the town center and Jurong Industrial District is the perfect venue for residents to feel like they are living amidst nature, which is an asset to every estate and its homeowners.
Several high-quality residential projects and developments are in store for the five booming districts for the next years to come. Its residents and homeowners are the town’s number one priority in considering what to innovate and develop, as they believe that happy residents equate to happy developers.
