First conceived in 2018, the upcoming Tengah Executive Condo (EC) development in Singapore is set to be the first ever “smart town” in the world. The project, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2021, promises to bring futuristic features inspired by Wakanda, a fictional African nation featured in the Marvel blockbuster Black Panther.
The development of Tengah EC is part of Singapore’s Smart Nation initiative and is designed to provide an enhanced quality of life for its residents.
Visitors to Tengah EC will be able to experience the futuristic Wakanda-like features that it offers. From the moment they enter the town, they will be surrounded by a smart cityscape that utilizes cutting-edge technology.

The streets of Tengah EC will be lined with solar-powered street lamps and smart benches that will enable visitors to charge their devices on the go. The town will also be equipped with an extensive network of sensors that can be used to monitor air quality, traffic flow and energy consumption.
In addition to these features, the town will also be equipped with an advanced communication system that allows residents to connect with one another and the outside world. This system will be powered by 5G mobile networks, providing residents with fast and reliable internet access.
The town will also be equipped with an advanced transportation system that will enable residents to travel quickly and conveniently. Autonomous vehicles and self-driving cars will be deployed to transport people throughout the town. The town will also be equipped with a network of bike lanes, allowing people to easily move around the town.
Finally, the Orchard Boulevard Condo town will be equipped with a variety of leisure and recreational facilities. These include a nature reserve, sports facilities, parks, a shopping mall and a variety of entertainment venues.

Tengah, located in the western part of Singapore, is set to become the country’s first smart estate, providing residents with a futuristic and Wakanda-like experience. The town is being developed by the Housing Development Board (HDB) and is expected to be completed by 2022. Tengah will be the first estate to implement the ‘Forest Town’ concept, which focuses on the integration of nature into the urban environment. Featuring lush greenery, walkways, and bike paths, Tengah will be a nature-friendly and sustainable estate that is conducive for people to live, work, and play.
Residents of Tengah will benefit from a range of smart features, many of which are inspired by Marvel’s fictional city of Wakanda. For instance, Tengah will implement a ‘smart precinct’ concept where all residential blocks and public amenities are connected via a Tengah EC centralised network, allowing residents to access and use shared services. This includes features like smarter car parking with an automated carpark system, and intelligent waste management with sensors that track waste levels in bins and alert the relevant authorities when they reach capacity.
Tengah is also set to become the first estate in Singapore to operate on an energy-efficient district cooling system. This system will use underground pipes to transport cold air to air-conditioned buildings and homes, reducing the amount of energy needed to cool them. In addition, Tengah will make use of solar power to generate electricity, while also using rainwater harvesting and water recycling systems to conserve water.
To promote a more active and healthy lifestyle, Tengah will feature extensive cycling and walking trails, as well as fitness parks and playgrounds for children. Residents will also be able to access a wide variety of amenities, such as supermarkets, food outlets, and shopping malls. In addition, the estate will be home to a range of educational institutions, including a school, an early childhood centre, and a community library.
In order to make Tengah an even more attractive and convenient place to live, the HDB is also looking at introducing a range of technologies like facial recognition, which can be used to access buildings, and driverless shuttles to transport residents between different parts of the estate. This is all part of the government’s vision to make Tengah a ‘smart and livable’ estate.
With its Wakanda-like features, Tengah is set to become a futuristic and vibrant new town that offers its residents a unique living experience. The estate will be a great place to live, with its smart features, energy-efficient systems, and a range of amenities and educational institutions. By 2022, Tengah will be the first estate in Singapore to offer residents a Wakanda-like experience, and a glimpse into the future of urban living.
