These terraces and blocks were built in the 1950s and 1960 respectively. Up till the 1950s, Queenstown was an agricultural area, where villages depended on cultivation and poultry to survive. There was also the baby boom surge which pushed for the development of public housing in Queenstown.
Construction started in 1953 by SIT and in 1960, HDB took over while still sticking to SIT's neighbourhood concept of having one community centre, shopping area and market. These flats helped increase employment within the residents.
Currently, these blocks serve as home to rental residents in Queenstown.
