This is the well-known Jelutong Tree (Family: Apocynaceae), which is over-harvested for its hard wood for timber. This grove has been planted for a decade now, I think, and they have indeed grown very fast. The height, well-spaced tiered branches and the dense crown give the tree a majestic appearance.

It was even flowering recently but not many people would notice the inconspicuous flowers.
