URA proposes new residential sites in Sengkang, Woodlands and Bukit Panjang, up to 14,000 new dwellings

The three parcels in Sengkang have the possible to be become an overall of 4,500 to 5,000 brand-new residences in the long term, Lee quotes. He believes the residential units will be a mix of HDB, executive condominiums (ECs) and exclusive housing.

The easternmost parcel in addition comprises of a narrow area zoned for household, a different location for a park, and a proposed site zoned for health and primary care. The sites in this parcel may be built much higher on average than the previous site, with a bigger gross plot ratio of 4.0 or 4.2.

The center site has pockets of non commercial areas, a suggested place for a park, and a suggested site for a house of prayer. A lot of the locations in this parcel will have a gross plot ratio (GPR) of 3.9 or 4.2.

The parcels in Sengkang remain in the Fernvale subzone, bounded by the Tampines Expressway to the North, Sengkang West Drive to the East, Fernvale Road to the South and Jalan Kayu to the West. 2 roadways diverse the 3 parcels. “The Fernvale area is an expansion of Sengkang town and brings residents closer to Seletar Aerospace Park,” says Lee Sze Teck, senior director of data analytics at Huttons Asia.

Some other residential development sites in the location consist of those on Anchorvale Road, which could produce in between 6,000 and 7,000 new houses, adds Lee. Thus, anywhere from 10,500 to 12,000 new homes could be made available in Sengkang in the coming future, consisting of exec residences and exclusive real estate.

Five land parcels were rezoned as part of the latest modification to URA’s Master Plan 2019. 3 of the sites are in Sengkang, one in Woodlands and the other in Bukit Panjang. The modifications are “to assist in property development that will sustain the demand for real estate in the places and also allow even more locals to have easier access to facilities and public transportation, states URA.

The westernmost parcel is proposed to be zoned as a pure residential place (subject to detailed arranging). Huttons’ Lee believes the westernmost location in Fernvale can house an MRT terminal for a brand-new line operating from Woodlands to Greater Southern Waterfront and going through Sengkang. If so, the new terminal will offer the upcoming suburb in Fernvale. “However, it may take years for comprehensive preparation on the brand-new line to be realized,” he adds.

2 different parcels of land re-zoned for domestic development are at Woodlands Drive 17 and Bukit Panjang Ring Road.

The land parcel at Woodlands is seated opposite the Singapore Sports School and can yield 1,000 dwellings, according to Lee. Opposite the road, a government land sale (GLS) site at Champion’s Way was offered for $904 psf per plot ratio in September 2023 to City Developments Ltd. The area can be become a 350-unit private residential project.

On the other hand, the site at Bukit Panjang is at the moment inhabited by Beacon Primary School. Lee estimates that the area might produce 900 to 1,000 residence units and likely be brand-new Built-to-Order condos.
