Date issued : 29 Nov 2010

As earlier announced by the Minister for National Development Mr Mah Bow Tan, HDB is launching the tender for a mixed commercial and residential sale site in Punggol Town Centre on 30 November 2010 (Tuesday). This site can potentially yield 50,400 square metres of gross commercial space and 685 dwelling units. It is released for tender under the Confirmed List of the 2nd Half 2010 Government Land Sales (GLS) Programme.

This development will play a key role in making Punggol Town Centre a vibrant centre of activity for Punngol residents. It marks an important milestone in realizing the Punggol 21 Plus vision announced by the Prime Minister in August 2007.


Punggol - A 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.
