The height of this building is 7 storeys high so do not attempt to scale it. The Swimming pools are on Level 5, badminton courts on Level 4 and tennis courts on Level 7. In this integrated facade, It is home for a community club at the ground floor, sports center on level 4, Polyclinic on Level 3, Senior care center on level 2 , Public library on level 2 and also more than 30 retailers under one roof. Having a big sports facility which is taking up four-levels of the building is already amazing without mentioning the green trees and plants to cool the inside of the building yet. It has 8 indoor badminton courts, 6 sheltered tennis courts, 4 sheltered swimming pools, 1 interactive play pools, and a gym. Feeling wow! Right? Yes! You can access to all of these sports under 1 roof.
Grassroots advisor Lee Yi Shyan said, “When we started to brainstorm on this idea, we never know that Our Tampines Hub was in parallel to heartbeat@bedok. Only after it is developed, then we realised that It is a pure coincidence. It is only much later that we realized.”
