Vicinity of Avenue South Residence
Outram Park Neighbourhood
Outram is to the east of Avenue South Residence Site, which is a planning area located within the Central Area of the Central Region of Singapore. Outram is next to these planning areas: Singapore River to the north, the Downtown Core to the east and south, and Bukit Merah to the west. All are important nodes to the city state from Avenue South Residence Condo.
Outram is central to several key important government and municipal buildings, such as Singapore General Hospital (SGH) and several other specialist health centres operated by Singapore Health Services (SingHealth). Notable enforcement agencies such as the Central Narcotics Bureau and the Police Cantonment Complex are also located in Outram.
Outram Secondary School is actually also situated with easy access in nearby York Hill, and easily accessible to Avenue South Residence Location. Across Outram Road from Outram Park MRT Station is the Health Sciences Authority (HSA) building, which is a globally recognized Health Science Research institute.
At the junction of Outram Road and College Road stands the Alumni Building which at one time housed the Department of Scientific Services (DSS) before it was relocated to its present location in HSA Building.
Tiong Bahru Neighbourhood
To the West of Avenue South Residence Silat Avenue, is Tiong Bahru. Tiong Bahru is a housing estate located within the Bukit Merah Planning Area, in the Central Region of Singapore. Tiong Bahru was constructed in the 1920s by the Singapore Improvement Trust, the predecessor to the Housing Development Board and an entity of the British colonial authority providing mass public housing in Singapore and is the oldest housing estate in Singapore.
In 2003, as a result of many years of discussion over the estate’s heritage status as a pioneering experiment in modern urban housing and in its entrenched familiarity in Singaporeans’ sense of place, twenty blocks of the pre-WWII flats were gazetted by the Urban Redevelopment Authority for conservation. Included in the Tiong Bahru Conservation Area are 36 units of shop houses on Outram Road.
A corner of Tiong Bahru was called “bird corner”. The owners of song birds such as Prinias, Robins, and Shrikes would gather at the corner to meet and chat over tea and coffee. The corner was disrupted by the building of the Link Hotel in the mid 2000s, although the bird lovers and their aviaries remain welcome.
In 2010, the estate and its residents were the subject of the tenth of the Civic Life films by the Irish filmmakers, Joe Lawlor and Christine Molloy. 150 volunteers from the estate and from across Singapore were involved. The film premiered at the National Museum of Singapore in October 2010.
Tiong Bahru is now seen as a hotspot for yuppies and hipsters who enjoy the old nostalgic vibes of the area, with abundance of cafes and well known hawker stalls. It is attractive for high-income residential population due to its close promixity to CBD, while retaining a traditional Singapore charm. There is a thriving art community in the district, with murals and art-centric shops in the area.
Currently, Avenue South Residence Site is minutes drive away from this mature estate and neighborhood.
