A Treasure Trove in Punggol Waterfront Town of the 21st Century
Punggol town is set to be transformed into ‘A Waterfront Town of the 21st Century’ through HDB’s Remaking Our Heartland (ROH) plans. Its new 4.2-kilometre My Waterway @ Punggol that runs through the town will present exciting opportunities for the development of waterfront housing, commercial and leisure attractions. This mixed-use site is the first sale site along My Waterway @ Punggol.
A new Punggol Town Square will be introduced at the upcoming Town Centre. Occupying about 0.4 hectare to the north-east of the sale site, it is envisaged to be a vibrant gathering space for community activities catering to Punggol residents. The activities could include a Town Day, National Day celebrations, community exhibitions and roadshows. A Visitors’ Centre showcasing the history and development of Punggol town will also be built within the Town Square.
There are approximately 18,000 flats in Punggol town currently. By 2015, it is estimated to reach 35,000 flats, which is similar in size to Toa Payoh. More sites for public and private residential development are in the pipeline, further boosting the population base.
Occupying about 3 hectares in the heart of Punggol town, the upcoming Punggol Town Centre is adjacent to the Punggol MRT/LRT Station and bounded by the upcoming Punggol Town Square to the north, Punggol Central to the south and Punggol Walk to the west. The bus interchange located a stone’s throw away, as well as the major arterial roads and expressways (TPE & KPE) provide seamless connectivity to all parts of the island. There is also a wide array of supporting facilities and amenities like schools and leisure within the town.
