Part of the Eastern Gateway Masterplan
In 2017, minister Lawrence Wong posted on Facebook the Singapore government’s plan to give this charming town next to the sea a modern facelift. The goal was to transform this town into a modern day urban sanctuary with more facilities and better connectivity to the rest of the country.
This plan is a part of the Remaking Our Heartland programme that was first announced by Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong in 2007 which involved residents’ feedback to ensure a plan that benefits all ages.
Take a look at this video provided by the Housing and Development Board of Singapore (HDB) below. You can also read more about the full renewal plans for Pasir Ris here.
The goal of the ROH programme isn’t just to improve the town and forego its roots, rather the proposals raised are aimed at accentuating the key points of each town.
And for the Pasir Ris town, that means its beaches, parks and recreational facilities.
To achieve this goals, there are 4 key areas the government plan to work on.
For interested buyers of Pasir Ris 8, the most important of these developments has to be the Town Centre.
And that’s because this exciting new mixed development is integral to HDB’s Town Centre Refreshed strategy. Residents of this new condominium will see themselves as a part of the town’s first integrated condo, shopping mall and bus interchange, all under one roof.
This makes the condo’s nearby amenities that much more interesting as well.
We’ve already mentioned the beautiful parks and beaches, which are all about to get upgraded, but in addition to that, there will be more nature and river ways within the town.
The town centre will also transform into a lively community hub, similar to what we’ve seen in Tampines, but with a new Town Plaza and Heritage Garden to boot.
While the many lush greenery around the town makes this condo a great buy for families, investors will also appreciate the developments around the area. Given its close proximity to Singapore’s internal airport, it’s no surprise then that the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) has major plans for the East as well.
The biggest of which is improving the connectivity of the region with the upcoming Cross Island Line (CRL) that are slated to begin construction works in the fourth quarter of 2021.
In fact, the Land Transport Authority (LTA) has recented awarded a $980 million contract to a Korean joint venture, Daewoo Engineering & Construction and Dongah Geological Engineering.
They will be responsible for designing and developing the existing Pasir Ris station and transforming it into an interchange with the new CRL.
With so many upcoming improvements to this quiet town, buyers of Pasir Ris 8 are assured their investment here is a good buy. After all, the Singapore government is involved with many of the local developments with their masterplan.
You’ll definitely want to lock in and secure your spot as soon as possible.
