History of Jurong East
Jurong East is a planning area located in the western region of Singapore. The mature residential and commercial hub borders Boon Lay and Jurong West to the west, Selat Jurong to the south, Bukit Batok and Tengah to the north, and Clementi to the east.
The town is a key industrial area in the country and comprises regions around the Pan Island Expressway, Jurong Town Hall Road, Pendan, and Teban estate.
Jurong is believed to have originated from the Malay word ‘Jerung,’ which means shark. The early Chinese community in the area named it Peng Kang due to the heavy gambier plantation.
At the start of the 20th century, Jurong was predominantly a rural area filled with fish and prawn ponds, mangrove swamps, and crocodile-infested rivers.
Around the 1960s, the government allocated resources to redevelop Jurong to attract foreign investors. Jurong was ideal for industrial development with its large tracts of government land and proximity to the main port and deep coastal waters.
Land reclamation began in 1962, and by the 1970s, Jurong had transformed into an industrial heartland. Jurong Industrial Estate’s opening made the area a thriving manufacturing hub.
The 1970s marked a significant turning point for Jurong’s development, establishing several estates like Bukit Gombak, Bukit Batok, Taman Jurong, Boon Lay, Yuhua, Teban Gardens, and Hong Kah. These estates were primarily developed to resettle residents from Hing Kah, now Tengah, and nearby villages.
Over the next few decades, Jurong underwent significant developments to become an established town. The government launched ambitious industrialisation programs that transformed Jurong into a key industrial estate in Singapore.
Today, Jurong East is home to over 80,000 residents and boasts popular shopping malls, reputable schools, and parks, making it an ideal place to live, work, and play.
Jurong East has a bright future, with many developments already taking shape. That will see the addition of residential and commercial properties, retail spaces, and a revamp of recreational areas. Moreover, the nearby Jurong Lake District (JLD) is set to become Singapore’s second CBD, injecting more vibrancy into the area.
With its current self-sufficient status and the many upcoming developments, J’Den condo presents an excellent opportunity for homebuyers and investors to invest in Jurong East.
