HISTORY OF JURONG EAST, SINGAPORE

Jurong East is a planning area in western Singapore, bordered by Boon Lay, Jurong West, Selat Jurong, Bukit Batok, Tengah, and Clementi.

Originally named Peng Kang by the early Chinese community due to its gambier plantation, Jurong is derived from the Malay word 'Jerung,' meaning shark.
 

In the early 20th century, it was a rural area with fish ponds, prawn ponds, mangrove swamps, and crocodile-infested rivers.

In the 1960s, the government focused on redevelopment to attract foreign investors. Jurong's proximity to the main port and vast government land made it suitable for industrial development. Land reclamation started in 1962, and by the 1970s, Jurong had transformed into an industrial hub with the opening of Jurong Industrial Estate.

 

During the 1970s, several estates like Bukit Gombak, Bukit Batok, Taman

Jurong, Boon Lay, Yuhua, Teban Gardens, and Hong Kah were established to resettle residents from Hing Kah and nearby villages.

Jurong underwent significant developments in subsequent decades, becoming an established town and a key industrial estate in Singapore.

 

Today, Jurong East is home to over 80,000 residents and offers popular shopping malls, reputable schools, and parks.

The future of Jurong East looks promising, with ongoing developments including residential and commercial properties, retail spaces, and the transformation of recreational areas. The nearby Jurong Lake District (JLD) is set to become Singapore's second Central Business District (CBD), adding vibrancy to the area.

Given its self-sufficiency and the numerous upcoming developments, J'Den Condo also known as J'Den Residence presents an excellent opportunity for homebuyers and investors looking to invest in Jurong East.
