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

Different residential development spots in the area consist of those on Anchorvale Street, which might generate in between 6,000 and 7,000 new houses, adds Lee. Therefore, anywhere from 10,500 to 12,000 brand-new dwellings could possibly be offered in Sengkang in the future, consisting of exec residences and exclusive housing.

The parcels in Sengkang are 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 roads separate the 3 parcels. “The Fernvale location is an extension of Sengkang town and brings residents closer to Seletar Aerospace Park,” says Lee Sze Teck, senior director of data analytics at Huttons Asia.

The easternmost parcel in addition contains a limited area zoned for residence, an additional site for a park, and a suggested site zoned for health and medical care. The sites in this parcel might be built higher on average than the previous location, with a larger gross plot proportion of 4.0 or 4.2.

The three parcels in Sengkang have the possible to be turned into an overall of 4,500 to 5,000 new residences in the years to come, Lee quotes. He believes the residential units are going to be a mix of HDB, exec condo units (ECs) and personal property.

Five land parcels were rezoned as part of the latest change to URA’s Master Plan 2019. Three of the spots reside in Sengkang, one in Woodlands and the other in Bukit Panjang. The amendments are “to assist in household project that is going to support the need for housing in the areas as well as permit more residents to have easier accessibility to amenities and public transportation, states URA.

The center spot consists of pockets of housing locations, a suggested location for a park, and a proposed site for a place of worship. Most of the sites in this parcel are going to have a gross plot ratio (GPR) of 3.9 or 4.2.

The westernmost parcel is recommended to be zoned as a pure non commercial place (based on detailed preparation). Huttons’ Lee believes the westernmost site in Fernvale can 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 serve the upcoming suburb in Fernvale. “However, it might take years for in-depth preparation on the brand-new line to be realized,” he includes.

2 other tracts re-zoned for residential development are at Woodlands Drive 17 and Bukit Panjang Ring Road.

The land parcel at Woodlands rests opposite the Singapore Sports Academy and can produce 1,000 residences, according to Lee. Reverse the roadway, a government land sale (GLS) spot at Champion’s Way was offered for $904 psf per story ratio in September 2023 to City Developments Ltd. The site can be developed into a 350-unit exclusive housing venture.

On the other hand, the site at Bukit Panjang is currently occupied by Beacon Primary School. Lee estimates that the area can produce 900 to 1,000 home units and likely be new Built-to-Order condos.
