New homes along the waterfront such as EastBank @ Canberra, the new Build-To-Order development in Sembawang along Sungei Simpang Kiri, are located close to existing residential areas. This proximity will help new residents maintain connections to family and friends.
New public and private housing developments offer diverse options for all who wish to build a home amid the greenery and waterways of the North.
With four bedrooms, three bathrooms and other innovations, new Three-Generation (3Gen) flats in Yishun cater to multi-generational families living together where parents and their married children could better care for and support each other. These 3Gen flats have been designed to be elderly and wheelchair-friendly, and are also conveniently located near amenities. The layout of 3Gen flats has also been designed to optimise living space, like having an open kitchen.
Middle-aged housing estates such as Yishun will be rejuvenated through the Remaking Our Heartland (ROH) exercise launched by the Housing & Development Board.
Residents can look forward to a new commercial and residential development integrated with an air-conditioned bus interchange, as well as the first Community Club located in a shopping mall, sited conveniently opposite the Yishun MRT station.
To create a more attractive environment and provide spaces for community bonding, the pedestrian mall in Yishun town centre has been upgraded with a plaza and green gateways. The Yishun Pond has also been improved with a new three-storey lookout tower, The Spiral@Yishun, to offer residents a panoramic view and easy access to Yishun Park via an overhead pedestrian bridge.
With new transport connections, fresh commercial space and room to grow, Woodlands Regional Centre is set to realise its full potential as Singapore’s Northern Gateway. As well as providing a direct connection to the city centre, the Thomson MRT line will host an interchange station with the future cross-border rail link to Malaysia. Comprising the districts of Woodlands Central and Woodlands North Coast, Woodlands Regional Centre has 700,000sqm of new commercial space planned and more than 100ha of developable land for expansion, which is comparable to other regional hubs such as Jurong Lake District and Tampines Regional Centre.
