The Commodore History
The Commodore is a rather interesting name for a development. It holds significant meaning with regards to the history of the land on which it is being built, taking inspiration from the naval past of Canberra. In order to understand the naval roots of Canberra, we must first dwell on the history of Sembawang, the larger encompassing area, which was developed into an important naval facility for Britain’s Far East Fleet during the pre and post World War II decades. Canberra was an important naval encase within the former Sembawang Naval Base during this period. The area was named Canberra after a visiting Australian warship in 1937. Many landmarks of this former naval base still exist today and they include the stately black-and-white houses that line Admiralty Road East and the grand Former Admiralty House at Bukit Canberra, which is a National Monument.
Back to The Commodore name, the Commodore Superintendent of the Royal Navy Dockyard was the topmost naval officer in Singapore at that time. He also had the esteemed honor of being the first resident in the Former Admiralty House, a grand four-hectare estate that today still stands proud as a witness to Canberra’s glorious colonial past. These historical facts inspired JBE Holdings Group, developer of The Commodore, to have the development named as a homage to the roots of its area, highlighting the respect and care they have for the place in history that the land holds.
