Good news for those who have always wanted to live near a river: A total of 100,000 new residential units will be built next to Kallang River over the next 20 years.
Minister for National Development Mr Lawrence Wong said the new home units will be within 2km of both sides of the Kallang River, with Kampong Bugis being one of the key residential precincts.
He made the announcement Wednesday (Mar 29) at the launch of 'A River Runs Through It', an exhibition on the rejuvenation of Kallang River by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA).
The Kampong Bugis area is about 17 hectares in size, and is envisioned as a new residential precinct "that is people-centric and car-lite", said Mr Wong.
Also primed to be developed into a new waterfront housing area is Kallang Distripark, said the URA in a statement on Wednesday. As such, URA said it will introduce "vibrant commercial and recreational nodes along the river to provide more avenues for both work and play."
Older industrial estates can be transformed into new mixed-use areas, said Mr Wong in his speech this morning.
