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

The westernmost parcel is proposed to be zoned as a pure non commercial place (subject to detailed arranging). Huttons’ Lee reckons the westernmost site in Fernvale could house an MRT terminal for a new line running from Woodlands to Greater Southern Waterfront and passing through Sengkang. If so, the new terminal will certainly offer the upcoming suburb in Fernvale. “Nevertheless, it may take years for in-depth preparation on the brand-new line to be realized,” he includes.

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 location is an expansion of Sengkang town and brings locals closer to Seletar Aerospace Park,” states Lee Sze Teck, senior supervisor of information analytics at Huttons Asia.

The easternmost parcel furthermore contains a narrow area zoned for household, a different site for a park, and a suggested site zoned for health and healthcare. The sites in this parcel might be developed higher on average than the previous location, with a larger gross plot proportion of 4.0 or 4.2.

Five land parcels were rezoned as part of the latest amendment to URA’s Master Plan 2019. 3 of the locations reside in Sengkang, one in Woodlands and the other in Bukit Panjang. The changes are “to promote property development that is going to sustain the demand for housing in the locations and also permit even more citizens to have easier easy access to features and public transport, says URA.

The 3 parcels in Sengkang have the prospective to be turned into a total amount of 4,500 to 5,000 new homes in the long term, Lee quotes. He believes the household units may be a mix of HDB, executive condo units (ECs) and exclusive housing.

The inner location includes pockets of housing sites, a suggested place for a park, and a proposed area for a house of prayer. A lot of the spots in this parcel will have a gross plot ratio (GPR) of 3.9 or 4.2.

Different residential advancement sites in the location include those on Anchorvale Street, which might yield in between 6,000 and 7,000 brand-new houses, adds Lee. Thus, anywhere from 10,500 to 12,000 new homes might be made available in Sengkang in the future, including executive condominiums and exclusive housing.

2 different parcels of land re-zoned for household 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 generate 1,000 dwellings, according to Lee. Reverse the roadway, a government land sale (GLS) location at Champion’s Way was marketed for $904 psf per story ratio in September 2023 to City Developments Ltd. The site can be become a 350-unit private non commercial venture.

Meanwhile, the site at Bukit Panjang is currently occupied by Beacon Primary School. Lee estimates that the site might generate 900 to 1,000 dwelling units and most likely be new Built-to-Order apartments.
