Far East Square
Located in the heart of Singapore’s Central Business District (CBD) and the China Place conservation area,
Far East Square is an award-winning commercial conservation project opened in 1999. The site, dating
back to the 1820s, was also the first landing point for many early Chinese immigrants.
Comprising 61 shophouses built between the early 1820s and mid-1900s, Far East Square was delicately restored for adaptive reuse according to the theme of “Old Meets New, East Meets West”. The heritage development is home to two landmarks - Singapore’s oldest school, Chui Eng Free School, which currently houses a Chinese restaurant, and the city-state’s earliest temple, Fuk Tak Chi Temple, now converted into a museum and entrance to the AMOY hotel.
Far East Square underwent a refresh in 2020. Further accentuating the rich history of the precinct and the dynamism of Singapore’s CBD, the façade and alley of Far East Square served as a concrete canvas for Singapore’s celebrated contemporary artist Jahan Loh, who is often credited for taking the city-state’s pop-art international. Today, Far East Square is a vibrant mixed-use development comprising a suite of F&B and retail establishments, offices, a museum and two hotels – AMOY and The Clan Hotel.
