The Diamond of Jurong

F1000020-11

A walk down Yung Kuang Road and you will be greeted with 21 storeys HDB flats that used to be the pride of Taman Jurong. They were the tallest flat in Jurong when they were completed in the 1970s.

What’s so unique about a HDB flat? The four blocks formed a diamond shape that can only be described as… iconic. Hence, it is broadly regarded as “The Diamond Block” by many.

Unlike the modern HDB flats which has void deck on level 1, the level 1 of the “Diamond Block” is occupied by shop lots.

The flats were previously under a demolish plan, but were now seems to be under refurbish and upgrading work.

Hopefully the building will stay for the years to come. I’m sure it brings back memories for those who have lived their childhood at this vicinity.
