The Site Plan for the new town of Tengah EC is an example of modern town planning in Singapore. The Biophilic Town Framework is applied to the development to guide the enhancement of landscapes and nature. Nature-centric neighbourhoods are known to promote wellbeing and quality of life. This article will discuss what is included in the new town plan and what it means for the surrounding area. This will help residents make informed decisions about their new homes.
The planned development of Tengah EC is part of the government’s Vision 2030 plan to make Singapore’s first entirely car-free town. The town will feature a five-kilometer forest corridor that will connect the town to the Central Catchment Nature Reserve. It will also be ringed by a lush green belt. In 2022, the town is expected to be completed.
The proposed development is near the city center and the Jurong Innovation District. It is also just a short drive from the Jurong Lake District, the second largest central business district outside of the city center. This makes it an ideal location for families with young children. The development is also convenient for public transport. Moreover, the development is close to a nature reserve, making it ideal for families with young children.
The plan also aims to promote green modes of transport. The town centre in Tengah is the first car-free Town Centre in a HDB town. The roads will be below the town centre and will feature greenery and communal spaces. Moreover, there will be cycling and walking paths on both sides of the roads. The development is aimed to help people live healthier and more environmentally-friendly lives.
The development of Tengah EC will include commercial and residential spaces. The town centre will be situated next to the future Tengah MRT station. It will also be close to a bus interchange and a polyclinic. The planned town centre is also expected to include a polyclinic, community club, and a public school. In addition to the proposed town centre, the proposed development will have 12 parcels dedicated to educational and health institutions.
Planning for Tengah’s development has been guided by six key ideas. These ideas include an evergreen forest town, provisions for easy movement, five distinct housing districts, and a smart, sustainable town. The town is designed to be a place of close-knit communities and a green, sustainable city. It is also the first car-free town in Singapore.
As part of its town planning, the developers are creating a 20-hectare central park in the Garden district of the development. This park will feature an amphitheatre, trails and water bodies. Tengah homes will also be surrounded by a forest fringe and the Forest Corridor. When it reaches critical mass, the town centre will be entirely car-free.
Another new development in the area is Copen Grand EC, which will be located near the Tengah Town MRT station. This development will be a greener township with more amenities and green features. It will cater to a younger population and create a more community-oriented environment. As it is located at the northern edge of the development, the Copen Grand EC will have a 20-hectare Central Park that will have a naturalised canal and many other green features.
A new town centre will feature a pedestrian-friendly central park that is completely car-free. In addition to the 20-hectare Central Park, the development will also feature bike paths and a central park for outdoor recreation. The development will also be connected to other parts of the town through smart features. Developers and builders are yet to release the prices of the plots, but based on the market demand, they will probably be at a high price.
The new town will be a greener and more sustainable place to live, and the transformation of this region is going to be unique. With a 20-hectare Central Park, Tengah EC will be a model for future green townships. It is also close to the Tengah MRT Station, which means that residents will have a better opportunity to walk to work and school.
Tengah EC is a new mixed-use development near the CBD, which is one of the first in the West. It will feature two types of residential communities: freehold houses and midwood condominiums. Both are expected to achieve Super Low Energy ratings and BCA Green Mark GoldPLUS certification. The development is also expected to offer easy access to the CBD and three MRT stations.
This development is close to nature reserves and greeneries, including the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve. It is also close to Jurong Innovation District, the region’s most advanced manufacturing center. Tengah EC is located near two major MRT stations – Jurong East Line and Jurong West Line. Tengah Town Centre is also close by. A half-hour train ride will take residents to Orchard Road and the Central Business District.
The EC is a type of hybrid development that caters to the middle-class and upper-middle class segments of the population. These properties are generally cheaper than equivalent private condos, but still provide private estate amenities. However, ECs are still subject to HDB regulations. The price per square foot is 760 dollars, and previous EC launches have sold out quickly.
The development will also include public amenities. Copen Grand EC, which is set to be completed in 2026, is close to the planned MRT station, as well as an upcoming car-free town center. Residents will also benefit from green features, such as bike paths and bike-friendly infrastructure. The project is expected to be completed by 2026 and will have over 4,000 units.
The new EC will be the first development in Tengah. It occupies a vast area of land. Tengah is a new town in Singapore, and is expected to have approximately 42,000 new homes built. The town will also be a Smart and Sustainable Town with smart energy management and EV infrastructure. It is being developed by two companies, CSC Land Group (Singapore) Pte. Ltd., and TID Residential Pte. Ltd. Ltd., and is currently selling plots to investors. The average price per plot ratio is $603 square feet.
After 10 years, the ECs will be sold as private property. This means that foreigners can buy these ECs in the open resale market. The ECs will be great for those in the LGBTQ+ community who cannot afford expensive private property. They will also be good for those who have HDB. But you must act fast before the ECs are fully privatized.
The development of the new executive condo Tengah EC is on the cards. The development will feature over 400 fully furnished units and will be situated within Tengah New District. The location of the development is also convenient for many local amenities. It is located near the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve and a number of greeneries. Residents will also have access to a fitness club and a swimming pool. The development will also feature a restaurant and a Chinese language school.
The price of the plots in Tengah EC will be low compared to other projects. It is important to note that the developer has not yet announced the price of the units for these plots. The development has been highly competitive among developers and has received seven bids. The winning bid came in at $400.3 million, which works out to be about $603 per square foot. Since the development is close to the Bukit Timah Nature Reserve, it should see a healthy interest. Moreover, it is located near the Jurong Eco-town and the Jurong Innovation District.
The site of the new development will be located within 2 kilometers of the existing primary schools – Shuqun Primary School and Princess Elizabeth Primary School. In addition to the schools, the site will also house community clubs and sports facilities. The site will also have a polyclinic and a bus interchange. It is hoped that the new development will provide a better environment for the residents. That way, residents will have a better quality of life and become environmentally conscious.
The new EC is located in the central part of Tengah town, and it will have a 20-hectare Central Park and a public amphitheatre. It will also be linked to a future MRT station. The Jurong Region Line is expected to service Tengah by 2026, making it accessible for residents and visitors. In addition, the entire town center will be car-free, which will be a plus for tenants.
