In the late 1960s, Singapore experienced rapid growth in its industrial estates, which necessitated the creation of a dedicated organisation to manage them. This led to the formation of the Jurong Town Corporation (JTC) in 1968 through an Act of Parliament to oversee Jurong and other industrial estates.

Initially, JTC operated from temporary premises for six years before moving into Jurong Town Hall in 1974. The building was designed to be the JTC's headquarters and was built as an elongated structure resembling a ship with two interconnected blocks of uneven length. One of the hallmarks of the building is its 58-metre clock tower, which housed one of the largest digital clocks in the region at the time of its construction, making it an iconic landmark in Jurong.

JTC eventually moved to a bigger building across the street in 2000 and changed its name to JTC Corporation. Today, the former Jurong Town Hall building has been leased out to various businesses. It was declared a National Monument in 2015, marking its significance in Singapore's development history.
