History and a wealth of Attractions

Built in 1927 and designed by F.G. Lundon from Singapore’s oldest architectural firm Swan and Maclaren, this 4-storey heritage building played an influential role in Singapore’s telecommunications history for nearly a century. Accorded conservation status in 2000, it has housed numerous corporations and government entities, such as the Eastern Extension Telegraph Company, the Telecommunication Authority of Singapore, Singapore Telecom, Singapore Post, and advertising agency Ogilvy & Mather.

Connecting Collyer Quay to the docks at Tanjong Pagar, Robinson Road was built on reclaimed land during the 1879 reclamation project on Telok Ayer. The road was then named after Sir William Cleaver Francis Robinson, Governor of the Straits Settlement from 1877 to 1879. Despite the completion of the reclamation project in 1887, the development of the vicinity along Robinson Road only began in the 1920s and 1930s.
