Master Plan for East Region- Paya Lebar, Tampines, Changi

Many mega developments in the East Region have been planned by the URA.

This is expected to underpin it as an important economic zone amid the government’s plan to further decentralise some of its major industries away from Hence, a new development such as the Parc Central Residences in Tampines and integrated development will provide astute investors the first-mover advantage to ride on the growth in the region.

Tampines is already known to be one of Singapore’s major regional centres, but its importance is set to grow further due to its strategic location between the Paya Lebar Airbase and Changi Region, which have been earmarked for major transformations.

Currently, Tampines is a self-sufficient estate with many essential amenities such as shopping malls, schools, recreation facilities and many more. It is also a major commercial hub and has been dubbed the CBD of the East. At Tampines Central, many established international banks such as OCBC, DBS, UOB, Citibank and Standard Chartered can be found. It is also home to major corporations such as AIA, NTUC Income and the CPF Board. All these are clustered around the Tampines MRT station and bus interchange. Nearby is Pasir Ris, which is just one MRT station away from Tampines. Pasir Ris is another well-established housing estate in the East. Endowed with lush greenery, nature parks, beach and a variety of recreational facilities, it hasbecome one of the most popular place to live.

The East is home to some major manufacturing and business hubs. These include the Pasir Ris Wafer Fabrication Park, Loyang Industrial Estate and Changi Business Park. It is also close the the Changi Airport. These places are well connected by the excellent MRT network to the surrounding housing estates. Unsurprisingly properties in Tampines and Pasir Ris have been well sought-after as choice locations to live, work and play. With the major transformation taking place together with the increased in employment opportunities, demand for properties are expected to rise.

One of the mega developments in the East Region is the redevelopment of the Paya Lebar Airbase . Under the URA Master Plan, the land currently occupied mostly by aeronautic and related industries will be relocated from 2030 onward. Five times the size of Toa Payoh Town, the area will be progressively transformed into a highly liveable and sustainable new town with a distinct identity anchored to its aviation heritage.

These will include meaningful parks and play spaces for people to enjoy. A new commercial hub will also be developed together with many lifestyle amenities. This will greatly benefit future residents in the area and those surrounding it, such as Tampines and Pasir Ris, which are a short drive away.

In fact, the the upcoming Cross Island Line (CRL) will bring these housing estates closer together. Phase 1 of this new line will stretch from Changi Aviation Park to Bright Hill while passing through Paya Lebar Airbase. Hence, it is highly likely a new MRT station will be built there in the future. Phase 1 of the Cross Island Line (CRL) is slated to be completed by 2029 and the Paya Lebar station is just 2 and 3 stops from Pasir Ris and Tampines respectively.

Mega Developments In Changi Region

Changi is synonymous with the Changi International Airport, which is ranked as one of the top airports in the world. However, under the URA Master Plan for the Changi Region , several mega developments are set to take place. This is expected to boost property demand in the East Region. The developments in the Changi Master Plan include the following:

Development of Tampines North

Tampines North is an extension of the current Tampines estate and one-fifth of its size. Currently, it is home to the Tampines Retail Park where three megastores are located – Giant Hypermarket, IKEA and Courts. The area is under study for the construction of an integrated transport hub. Integrated Transport Hubs are fully air-conditioned bus interchanges that seamlessly link to the MRT network and shopping malls/commercial buildings.

Tampines North is expected to provide about 21,000 new private and public housing when fully developed.
