In earlier articles, we’ve pointed out that the URA Master Plan is a critical factor in property planning. Beyond the confines of a given street or avenue, however, it also pays to know the big picture plans for a neighbourhood. Case in point: Jurong East, which transformed a once backwater, industrial area into a retail and lifestyle powerhouse. Those who got in early will definitely have seen good asset appreciation. So as we near the end of the roller-coaster that’s been 2020/21, it’s high time to review the upcoming, major changes:

What are the main highlights to watch for in the URA Master Plan in 2021?

  • The Greater Southern Waterfront (GSW)
  • Punggol Digital District (PDD)
  • Changi Region development
  • Woodlands Regional Centre
  • Jurong West, due to the Tuas Megaport
  • Movement of Paya Lebar Airbase
