Housing: Fulfilling dreams at the waterfront

Punggol is steadily shaping up to be one of the most sought-after housing location in Singapore. This waterfront town currently offers a wide variety of housing options, with residents enjoying easy access to amenities as well as parks and recreation spaces. Future developments will focus on providing even more housing choices while bringing greater convenience to daily living and making waterfront leisure more accessible to the residents of Punggol, including:

>> New waterfront housing districts spread across the town. This will start with the Matilda District, which will pay homage to the former plantations and historic Matilda House in the area, and the Northshore District which will feature an extensive network of second-storey walkways connecting residents outwards to the sea

>> Punggol Town Hub, an integrated community hub development that includes a Community Centre, hawker centre and a regional library, located within the Town Centre

>> Punggol Town Square, a gathering space for community activities, overlooking My Waterway@Punggol.

Leisure: More recreational choices for young and old

Today, Punggol residents young and old have a host of recreational options at their doorsteps, from leisurely stroll and cycling along My Waterway @ Punggol and the Punggol Promenade, to exercising at fitness stations amidst the greenery of Punggol Town Park. More green spaces and recreation facilities will be developed in the coming years for residents to enjoy an active and healthy lifestyle. These include:

>> A rustic park on Coney Island

>> More green spaces that bring residents closer to the waterfront

>> Sports facilities and a Safra Clubhouse located within the Town Centre

Transport: Better ways to travel

To keep pace with new developments, there will be enhancements to public transport and improvements to the road and cycling networks. This will make getting around the town and to other parts of Singapore faster and easier, including:

>> An intra-town cycling network

>> Two new MRT connections by 2030, the Cross Island Line (CRL) and the extension of North-East Line (NEL) to serve the new Punggol Downtown.

>> The Western LRT Loop, which will begin operations in tandem with upcoming developments

>> Improvements at Punggol Way and Punggol Road to provide smoother connections to Tampine Expressway (TPE)

>> Improvements to Punggol Place

>> A new road linking Punggol Central to TPE and KPE

>> The Punggol Semi-Expressway, which will be the main route for inter- and intra-town travel in the longer term

Economy: Creating an Innovative Work-Learn-Play environment

An expanded mix of activities will be introduced, adding vibrancy to the whole town and opening up more job opportunities for residents nearby. These activities will be located in the new Punggol Downtown, to be created by extending the existing Town Centre towards the waterfront.

Residents can expect:

>> The Creative Cluster – a new district to house innovative industries, with green spaces, community spaces and excellent waterfront views to provide an attractive work and play environment

>> A tertiary institution, which will form a Learning Corridor with connectivity to the Creative Cluster

About the Park:

The Amore EC Waterway @ Punggol

The Amore EC – Waterway @ Punggol

Punggol was once a fishing village littered with pig and poultry farms set alongside vegetable plantations. Today, its new residential town is set to capitalise on what remains of this lovely setting. The waterway traversing the town centre and the coastal promenade are pleasant additions to the breezy open spacesand seafood restaurants. The Town Park is a multi-purpose park located just a few minutes’ walk north of the Punggol Town Centre. Its traffic-free environment makes it an ideal venue for plenty of leisure and recreational activities along the Punggol Waterway. One can also embark on a nostalgic walk to the old Punggol Road.

*Interesting Fact: Punggol, in Malay, means ‘hurling sticks at the branches of fruit trees to bring them down to the ground’, perhaps referring to the area as a fruit-growing district years ago or as a rendezvous for wholesale fruit agents.

Background of Punggol Waterway Park Project:

HDB Press Release (Abstract):

HDB Homes of the Future: Green and Sustainable

Date issued : 09 Sep 2014

 

HDB today unveiled detailed plans for the first housing projects in Bidadari and Tampines North, as well as for Punggol Northshore – one of seven new waterfront housing districts in Punggol. Tailored to capitalise on each estate’s distinct character, history and local flavour, these plans are set to usher in a new generation of public housing.
This follows the announcement of the broad master plans for Bidadari and Tampines North last year, and for the next phase of development for Punggol in 2012.
Featuring innovative concepts, the plans will be guided by four key ideas:
 a) Distinctive districts and neighbourhoods
 b) Seamless connectivity to transportation networks
 c) Vibrant community spaces to encourage community activities
 d) Sustainable homes with abundant greenery

A Unique Seafront Living Experience – Punggol Northshore

Under the master plan for Punggol New Town, Punggol will feature seven distinctive eco-town districts, each with a unique identity and character. Following the announcement last year of the plans for the Matilda District, the Northshore District is the next district in Punggol to be developed. It will offer an estimated 6,000 new flats, with the first project slated to be launched in 2015.

Punggol Northshore is envisioned to be “A Smart and Sustainable District”. To realise this vision, the design concepts focus on enhancing the living environment for residents through the use of new technologies and connecting residents to greenery. Set to be Punggol’s first seafront housing district, the plan will capitalise on its waterfront location and rich biodiversity.

The distinctive features of the Northshore District include:

(A) Varied Building Heights to Capitalise on Sea Views

To enable residents to enjoy the sea views, the heights of the buildings and sky gardens will be varied, in turn creating a distinctive skyline.

(B) Community Spine

Northshore will be the first public housing district to be directly connected to an LRT station. The “Community Spine”, a two-storey walkway, will link the LRT station to the coastal promenade, allowing convenient and sheltered access to the waterfront.

(C) Two-storey Green Communal Deck

The first level will comprise communal spaces such as a “Seafront Viewing Deck” and “Community Living Rooms” nestled amidst lush greenery, for residents to relax and enjoy the view, or to mingle and interact. On the second level, 3-Generation facilities such as a playground and fitness corners, will adopt a “wave-like” design, in line with the district’s seafront theme.

(D) Seafront Commercial Centre

A neighbourhood shopping centre, integrated with shops and F&B outlets, will draw residents and visitors to the waterfront esplanade, with a view of the Straits of Johor. Next to it will be the “Community Spine”, which promises to be a bustling platform that will bring, bind and bond the community over activities and programmes.

(E) Central Green

The Central Green flanking the community spine, will sport eco-features such as a dragonfly pond and bioswales which promote biodiversity, treat surface runoff water, and enhance the landscape.

(F) Solar Ready Roofs

HDB blocks at Northshore will be installed with solar ready roofs, which are designed with structural and electrical considerations to allow future installation of solar PV systems.

Northshore will also be the first district to test-bed smart technologies in public housing. This will enhance the planning, design and maintenance of HDB estates to bring about a more liveable, efficient, sustainable and safe living environment. Some of the technologies which will be featured in the housing projects include:

Intelligent Car Parks

Every car park will have an intelligent parking demand monitoring system. The system will automatically increase the number of available lots during non-peak hours for visitors, as residents with season parking ticket (SPT) are out in the day. Conversely, it will also reduce the number of available lots for short-term parking visitors in the evening, to ensure sufficient lots are reserved for residents with SPT returning home.

 

Smart Lighting
Lighting with sensors, installed in the common areas will help HDB to understand human traffic patterns and optimise the provision of lighting. The lighting in common areas with little or no human traffic detected could be reduced to 30%, potentially reducing energy usage by as much as 40%.

 

Smart Waste Management
A Smart Pneumatic Waste Conveyance System will be incorporated into the design of HDB blocks. The sensors in the system will monitor waste disposal patterns, before the data is analysed to optimise the deployment of resources needed for waste collection. This system will also be implemented in the first housing precinct in Bidadari and Tampines North.
