Massive development are underway to transform Singapore oldest estate The Queenstown Estate into a top educational hub. The sleepy town used to be populated by senior citizens, had came a long way. Lots of efforts were put into rejuvenatING the area and turn it into a modern metropolis. Many younger generations and expats now were attracted to the area and it is bustling. Sheng Siong and koufu near the commonwealth MRT were crowded.



It had been 40 over years since the government first built it.  Now you can see westerners came to stay here, which before that they don't stay in HDB.
With many massive developments around the area presently, can it transform into a modern metropolis? ACS International which offer diplomas programs. And it recently upgraded its stated of art facilities and sport hub to draw more international students.
