Paya Lebar Central
Centrally located near the city, Paya Lebar Central is also in close proximity to the culturally rich Geylang Serai precinct. Developments such as Wisma Geylang Serai and Paya Lebar Quarter will add to the area’s rich array of lifestyle and entertainment offerings.
Owners of key buildings within the precinct are on board the pilot Business Improvement District programme to develop initiatives that will further enliven the precinct, and complement plans to make Geylang Serai more culturally distinctive.
Dakota Crescent will be revitalised with the injection of new public housing. The much loved central courtyard, Dove Playground and six distinctive blocks of former Singapore Improvement Trust flats will be retained as landmarks for the precinct. Future residents can look forward to an inclusive estate with convenient amenities and vibrant community spaces amidst the heritage buildings.
East Coast Park Improvement Works
Visitors to one of Singapore’s most well-loved can enjoy the recently reopened Raintree Cove and look forward to upgraded open spaces and amenities at Big Splash and Cyclist Park. Fun-seekers will get to enjoy new F&B outlets, a vertical playground with a lookout tower, and an expansive multi-purpose lawn.
The area around Kallang is set to be further enhanced as a destination for sport and world-class entertainment after Sport Singapore (SportSG) announced plans to develop the precinct by 2025.
In a bid to inject vibrancy into the area, six developments will be built to complement the $1.33 billion Singapore Sports Hub, which includes the 55,000-seater National Stadium, OCBC Aquatic Centre and Singapore Indoor Stadium.
In a first for Singapore, a velodrome looks set to be built to cater to the community and serve as the national training centre for track cycling. The indoor track would be part of the Youth Hub, which would be developed with the National Youth Sports Institute and include spaces for non-traditional sports like speed climbing and parkour.
