History[edit]

During the Circle Line Stage 1 planning, the Circle Line Extension was planned to terminate at Chinatown, and was used by both Circle Line and Eastern Region Line all the way until 2007. Now, the section between Bayfront and Chinatown is used by the current Downtown Line Stage 1. The station was renamed from Landmark to Downtown on 11 January 2011.

Art in Transit[edit]

Illustrations on the walls of the station titled, "Leaves" by Jason Lim shows a connection of dense cell network of bamboo leaves and the business and financial services in the vicinity.[1]

Cladding works on going at the entrance as of May 2012.
