New ECs in Tengah is a landmark development near the city center. This project will be the first of its kind in the West region and is planned with a focus on sustainability and smart design. This project will bring 42,000 new residents into the area. It is part of the Evergreen Forest Town blueprint and is ideally located close to three MRT stations.
The Tengah EC site has been awarded to a joint venture between CDL and MCL Land. It is the first executive condominium site in Tengah to be sold under the Government Land Sales programme. A joint venture between CDL and MCL Land, Taurus Properties SG, submitted the winning bid of $400,318,000. A total of seven bidders participated in the auction. Other bidders include Sunway Development and Hoi Hup Realty.
The joint venture aims to develop a mixed-use town centre at the site, which will be linked to the Tengah MRT station. The development will also feature bus interchanges and community facilities such as a polyclinic. Future educational institutions will also be located in the development.
The joint venture won two other EC sites in the Tengah area last month. The new EC site is expected to sell for a minimum price of $241.2 million. The new ECs will be available to Singaporeans and PRs.
The project is expected to provide a variety of amenities including public parks, retail spaces, schools, and shopping malls. In addition, residents will be close to three MRT stations. The development will include a future car-free option. It will also feature sustainable amenities such as rainwater collection systems and green roofs.
The proposed development is located near the Bukit Panjang neighbourhood, which is a mix-use neighbourhood that includes an HDB estate. This neighbourhood is known for its good investment potential and its quaint, community-centric feel. The nearby Bukit Panjang Town Centre is a well-known shopping mall in Singapore and boasts ample parking space.
The Site is situated near three MRT stations: Tampines West MRT station, Bedok Reservoir MRT station, and Upper Changi MRT station. The first two are named after the nearby shopping centers, but the third is not. Bendemeer station gets its name from a street in Little India that was once occupied by a Chinese man. The third one is called Mattar station, after plants that grow in the area and the Malay language.
The North South Line was opened in 1988. The East West Line and the Jurong Region Line followed soon after. In 1996, the Circle Line and the Downtown Line opened as well. By 2030, there will be 280 MRT stations in Singapore. In the meantime, eight out of 10 homes in Singapore are located near an MRT station.
The naming of new MRT stations is a popular topic in Singapore, with Singaporeans actively participating in naming new lines. There is a list of suggested names, and the public can vote from that list. The authors also explore the naming practices in older and new public rail networks in Singapore, including the North South Line, the Downtown Line, and the Downtown Line.
Fortunately, the LTA is using a consultative approach in the naming of stations on new MRT lines. Rather than naming a station based on its proximity to an existing road or physical landmark, the LTA first suggests a working name for each station. In 2008, the LTA proposed preliminary names for nine Downtown Line stations. The public then had the opportunity to suggest alternate names. Ultimately, the final names should reflect the history and geography of the surrounding area.
Tengah is an estate with a lot of greenery. The EC is located near existing primary schools like Princess Elizabeth Primary School and Shuqun Primary School. It also has a sports center and a polyclinic. It is surrounded by a network of underground roads. The site is also near the bus interchange.
The EC project in Tengah is expected to be completed by 2030. It features two residential communities, including midwood and freehold residences. The project will include over four thousand units. There will also be 268 retail outlets and a community park.
The EC will have a high quality of living, allowing residents to live in a smart, environmentally-friendly township. The township will also have wide open spaces and a dedicated farming and gardening area. It will also have an ecological pathway stretching five kilometers.
The new EC in Tengah is located on a 2.2 hectare site, and will have six hundred and fifteen units. It is also expected to achieve a BCA Green Mark GoldPLUS rating. The EC will feature a public sports centre, bus interchange, and two primary schools. When completed, the estate is expected to have around 100,000 jobs.
The new EC in Tengah will be car-lite and environmentally-friendly. The town centre will feature dedicated pathways for walking and cycling. All roads running through the town centre will be underground, allowing for more convenience and accessibility. The town centre will also feature a central hub and a convenient shopping center.
The EC will be the focal point of a sustainable ecosystem. It will be surrounded by an eco-friendly five-kilometer forest corridor. It is also near the Jurong Lake District, a smart district for the future.
Tengah is one of the 24 settlements built in Singapore since the end of the Second World War. The site was formerly a military training base and brick making factory, and will include five residential districts and multiple public gardens. Residents will be able to walk or cycle around the entire town, and parking will be underground. The government expects that this will free up space for parks, cycle routes, and community farms.
In addition to its new town centre, Tengah will have a wide network of public transport. There will be a train station within walking distance, dedicated bus lanes, and walking and cycling paths. The development will also encourage environmentally-friendly vehicle use, with electric vehicle charging stations located outside the town centre. There will also be no cars in the town centre, as mass transit will be the predominant mode of transportation.
A digital framework called One Tengah will be used to manage energy and water usage, as well as traffic, weather, and other data. Residents will be able to monitor the energy usage of their homes and use it efficiently. They will also be able to subscribe to a range of smart home solutions and shop for electricity retail packages through the app. Electric vehicle owners will also be able to access charging points and remotely monitor the charging status of their vehicles via the app.
The HDB has also entered into new partnerships with industry leaders to further their efforts in creating a smart town. This includes a Memorandum of Understanding with the SP Group, a consulting firm specializing in sustainable energy. In addition, the HDB has entered into a joint venture with Robin Village Development Pte Ltd, which will conduct research into the development of 3D-printed concrete and other unique architectural forms. These partnerships will allow the development agency to expand its design capabilities.
