History: Tanglin Road adopted its name from the house of William Napier, who was a prominent lawyer and newspaper editor in Singapore in the 1800s. Sir Stamford Raffles revamped the entire town four years after the founding of Singapore in 1819. Various land parcels were distributed to the ethnic groups for their businesses and trade.The Chinese, particularly the Teochews, engaged largely in the agricultural business. They cleared large pieces of land for the cultivation of pepper, gambier and nutmeg. The former Tanglin Barracks was one of the flourishing nutmeg plantation sites. Due to a blight, the nutmeg cultivation came to an abrupt halt in 1857. In 1860, a large portion of the nutmeg plantation at Tanglin was carved out for the construction of the Tanglin Barracks. This was intended as accommodation for the military troops in Singapore . In 1867, there were plans to station a European regiment at the Tanglin Barracks. Extensive renovations were carried out. By 1893, Tanglin Barracks was home to 26 officers and 661 men of the only infantry battalion in Singapore, two artillery batteries, one company of Royal Engineers, and a few Sikh soldiers from the Chine Gun Lascars.On 10 Feb 1972 , the Ministry of Defence (MINDEF) decided to shift its headquarters to Tanglin Barracks, which had been vacated by the British Far East Land Forces. This move enabled MINDEF to centralise the Ministry and most of its main command and support organisations in one location. In 1989, after a 17 year stay in Tanglin, MINDEF HQ moved into its new home at Bukit Gombak. Tanglin Barracks was returned to the former Land Office in the early 1990s and subsequently progressively let out to the private sector. Today, Tanglin has been revamped to a lifestyle and education hub, as reflected by various colonial buildings next to Minden Road that have been used as dance studios or childcare centres.

All public and volunteer healthcare facilities, plus a medical school, will be linked up to form Health City Novena. More facilities and services will be added to the existing ones, such as Tan Tock Seng Hospital, and the built-up area will be more than doubled from 250,000 sq m to 600,0000 sq m. In the future, there will be a steady pool of good tenant profiles, involved in medical works, in the Novena area and spilling over to Newton.
The GCB Good Class Bungalows owners of Novena have the good fortune of being able to enjoy the best of both worlds – a glitzy modernity that manifests in shopping malls band healthcare facilities on the one hand, and the idyllic, nostalgic charm of the Balestier shophouse stretch, two sides of a Singapore that’s caught between the past and the future.
