1. Mountbatten-Meyer area

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

This subregion consists some of the most expensive and prestigious properties in the Eastern sector of Singapore. Big bungalows, high-rise seafront condominium and freehold properties are the signature attributes of this high class residential estate. It consists of the well-known roads of Mountbatten road, Meyer Rd and Tanjong Katong.

Tanjong Katong, now an estate, translated means “turtle point”. The area has many roads here of English origin for example Mountbatten, Bournemouth, Wilkinson and Broadrick. Today the main Tanjong Katong Road stretches from Sims Avenue to Tanjong Katong Road South where the Tanjong Katong Flyover links with East Coast Parkway (ECP).

Some existing heritage landmarks
The Katong Post Office sitting in an old 2-storey colonial house is possibly one of the oldest neighbourhood Post Offices still standing in its original location.

Chung Cheng (Chinese) High School was a centre for many student demonstrations in the late 1950s and early 1960S. It still stands today in Goodman Road.

The Tanjong Katong Girl’s school stood alongside the Tanjong Katong Technical School before it moved further down Tanjong Katong Road to a spanking new building.
