URA's Proposal for Sengkang, Woodlands, and Bukit Panjang

URA's Proposal for Sengkang, Woodlands, and Bukit Panjang

The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) recently unveiled plans to rezone five land parcels across Sengkang, Woodlands, and Bukit Panjang for residential development, potentially accommodating up to 14,000 new dwellings. Here's a breakdown of the key details:

Key Highlights:

  • Three parcels in Sengkang's Fernvale subzone are poised for development, offering a mix of residential, park, and community facilities.
  • The Fernvale area's strategic location near Seletar Aerospace Park enhances its appeal for future residents.
  • Proposed gross plot ratios (GPR) range from 3.9 to 4.2, with higher densities anticipated for certain parcels, particularly those earmarked for health and medical care facilities.
  • Speculation about a potential MRT station in Fernvale underscores the area's potential for future transportation infrastructure upgrades.
  • Sengkang's overall development pipeline, including existing and planned projects, could add between 10,500 to 12,000 new dwellings, comprising HDB flats, executive condominiums (ECs), and private housing.
  • In Woodlands, a land parcel near Singapore Sports School offers space for approximately 1,000 dwellings, complementing the adjacent private residential development at Champion's Way.
  • The site currently occupied by Beacon Primary School in Bukit Panjang is slated for redevelopment, potentially yielding 900 to 1,000 new dwelling units, likely in the form of Built-to-Order flats.

URA's proposal reflects ongoing efforts to address Singapore's housing needs by unlocking new residential opportunities in key growth areas. By strategically rezoning land parcels and optimizing land use, the initiative aims to enhance accessibility to amenities and public transport while catering to evolving demographic demands. The emphasis on mixed-use developments underscores a holistic approach to urban planning, fostering vibrant and inclusive communities. This also means that we are pushing to meet the demand and an effort to stablize the property market.
