The Jurong East Transformation is expected to benefit many areas of Singapore, including Yuan Ching Road. This transformation will help attract new residents, increase property values, and improve the overall quality of life in the Jurong area. However, there are some concerns about this transformation. For instance, it may affect the property prices in Jurong, especially if HSR is terminated. Nevertheless, if you’re an early buyer, you may be able to get the best deals.
Toh tuck Road
If you’re wondering how Toh tuck Road will benefit from Jurong East transformation, you’re not alone. More than 60,000 households are expected to be added to the area. It is also expected that the transformation will make the Ayer Rajah Expressway more accessible.
A large portion of Jurong’s land will be zoned as “white”, a special kind of site that allows for a variety of different building types. This is very different from the current CBD, which is zoned red, which restricts the variety of buildings that are permitted. In addition, URA is exploring selling large tracts of land to master developers, who can adapt the site over time.
The new Science Centre, which will be built alongside the Chinese Garden MRT station, will provide more educational facilities. The new centre is expected to open by 2025. The development is likely to benefit Lakeside Apartments, which are a small project with two blocks of 120 residential units. The reserve price for the two blocks was recently cut to S$205 million, from $240 million.
Lakeside Apartments is located on Yuan Ching Road, and has a land area of 134,176 square feet. It is a 99-year leasehold development on a site zoned for residential purposes. Its gross plot ratio is 2.1, and it has the potential to become a 24 storey condominium.
Located near the future Jurong East MRT station, Tengah EC offers convenient access to the city’s amenities. Nearby roads include Brickland Road, Pan-Island Expressway, and the Jurong East Bus interchange. It will also have plenty of green spaces. The upcoming residential complex is slated for completion in 2022.
Upon completion, Tengah EC will be home to over 6 thousand new flats and luxurious facilities. The development will also feature a polyclinic, sports complex, and a bus interchange. It is also close to primary schools and the future “car-free” town centre.
Ng Teng Fong General Hospital
The Ng Teng Fong General Hospital (NTFGH) is a 700-bed hospital located in Jurong East, Singapore. Named for a late Singaporean entrepreneur, the hospital is a major health facility that’s part of a new integrated development with Jurong Community Hospital.
The new hospital will complement Jurong Community Hospital, which opened in June 2015. The hospital is designed to maximize natural light and ventilation, and incorporates many sustainable design features. The hospital is built in a West-East orientation and features ward towers that take advantage of prevailing winds. It also has light shelves that provide shade and natural light to patients.
Jurong Community Hospital
Yuan Ching Road is a neighbourhood in Jurong East that is being transformed into a mixed-use district. Developed on an expansive plot, the district will be the site of the upcoming Ng Teng Fong General Hospital. The plan will integrate the Pandan Reservoir area with the district. The plan also calls for the upgrading of the surrounding parks and water bodies. The aim is to create an attractive waterfront residential district similar to that of Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park.
This area was previously known as Peng Kang, after the gambier plantations along Sungei Jurong. In the mid-20th century, this area was home to several brickworks, palm oil plantations, nurseries, and public housing estates. Later, the region’s growth saw the development of Jurong West into nine distinct subzones. These subzones are now home to a total of 94,000 public and private housing units.
Schools in Jurong East
The Yuan Ching Road Transformation is expected to bring about a new era of education, as it will make it easier for parents to send their children to school in Jurong East. Schools in the neighbourhood will benefit from a host of new facilities, including a science centre and a lake garden. The Yuan Ching Road Transformation project will also make it easier for parents to find affordable housing in the area.
A new district encompassing a lake, a science centre and edutainment attractions will be created. The Jurong Lake District is set to benefit from the opening of the Jurong Region Line in 2027, making it a more accessible area for residents to commute to work and play.
