If you’re thinking of getting Singapore homes in the future, add this new residential and commercial site that will rise in the Bidadari estate to your list. The Housing & Development Board (HDB) recently launched a mixed commercial and residential area located in Upper Serangoon Road. It was confirmed to be a part of the Government Land Sales programme last year but pushed into early 2017 due to finalisation of site requirements and developments.
The 25,440 sqm plot, which sits right next to the Woodleigh MRT station, is forecasted to create 825 private Singapore homes for sale. According to the details released on March 6, the area will have a 6,000 sqm community centre and a neighbourhood police branch that will occupy at least 2,190 sqm.
Private Singapore homes in a vibrant residential area
The residential site is a promising Singapore property investment because of convenient transportation plans. Aside from being close to an MTR station, there are plans set for an “extensive pedestrian and cycling network within Bidadari estate and the possibility of car sharing and bike sharing schemes.”
Mr Ong Teck Hui, JLL’s national director for research and consultancy, claimed that Bidadari estate has the “makings of a new prime city fringe sub-market”. Mr Ong Kah Seng, head of R’ST Research, shares that the response for the Bidadari sale is overwhelming. He claims that “buying interest is expected to be strong”.
The public tender was launched last March 6 and will close on June 13.
