1962: Flats in Queenstown built by the Housing and Development Board (HDB). Queenstown was one of the earliest housing estates to be built by the Singapore Improvement Trust, the predecessor to HDB. It was named after Queen Elizabeth II, in 1953, in commemoration of her being proclaimed queen. After HDB was formed in 1960, Queenstown underwent major development from 1960 to 1965 as part of HDB’s first Five Year Building Programme.
