The building was the first shopping centre of its kind in Southeast Asia and set the pattern for later retail developments in Singapore. Occupying 1.0 hectare in the heart of Chinatown, the People's Park Complex was the largest shopping complex in the shopping commercial belt along Eu Tong Sen Street and New Bridge Road.
