Did you know Woodlands is set to be the next success story?
Singapore’s northern gateway – One of the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) proposed new regional centres, Woodlands is set to be transformed into a booming metropolis, offering a modern, dynamic and diverse environment in which to live, work and play. Around 700,000 sq m of new commercial space is planned, as well as significant infrastructure improvements throughout the region. No wonder it is widely considered to be Singapore’s next big thing.
Incredible connectivity – Woodlands North and Woodlands South on the brand new Thomson-East Coast Line both come online in 2019, bringing the number of MRT stations in the area to five, with Admiralty, Woodlands and Marsiling already serving the region via the North South Line. The North-South Corridor – Singapore’s first integrated transport route – will be an expressway directly linking to the Central Business District (CBD), and will feature dedicated and continuous bus and cycle lanes. A new Integrated Transport Hub will provide a seamless connection between the MRT station and bus interchange at Woodlands Central.
Unrivalled dining, retail and leisure – When Northpoint City opens its doors in 2018, it will be the largest mall in the north of Singapore, and will add to the considerable choices already offered by Sun Plaza, Causeway Point and Sembawang Shopping Centre. Woodlands Central will feature a new retail and food hub, while Kampung Admiralty will be home to, among other exciting unique amenities, hawker centres, F&B outlets and supermarkets. Leisure wise, the Singapore Zoo, Night Safari, River Safari, soon to be relocated Bird Park, and recently announced Rainforest Park are 10 minutes’ drive away, while ORTO, the island’s first 24-hour leisure facility, is also nearby.
First world amenities – Woodlands and the immediate area is home to established schools and educational facilities covering the whole spectrum from childcare and primary schools up to secondary and tertiary, local and international. As well as existing specific centres for the elderly, there will shortly be a fully integrated healthcare hub with a community hospital, an acute hospital and nursing home.
Did you know luxury could be so affordable?
21st century luxury living – Northwave boasts all the modern facilities you would expect from a high-end condo, but with some unexpected and unique twists, such as its fully air-conditioned badminton court cum multi-purpose hall that can be used for organising big functions.
Promoting community and family values – Many of its recreational and leisure facilities are specifically designed to encourage and promote health and wellness, as well as engender family bonding. The ground-breaking Patio Homes concept recreates the feel and atmosphere of a landed property and garden.
Ideally located near transport links – The development is in easy reach of Admiralty MRT station and the soon to be completed Woodlands South station. Cyclists are well catered for with cycling paths leading to park connectors, linking numerous nearby parks including Woodlands Waterfront.
Executive condos: Great homes, great investments – In an uncertain market, ECs have stood out as being some of the most sought-after properties in recent years. Hand in hand with the restrictions come several grants and subsidies, turning an already attractive proposal into one of the very best options available for HDB upgraders and young upwardly mobile couples.
Did you know there has never been a better time to invest in Woodlands?
10,000 new jobs on your doorstop – The development and investment that its regional centre status draws is a massive boost to the area’s economic and employment prospects. More than 10,000 new jobs will be created in the new business clusters in Woodlands North, Gambas Avenue and Woodlands Avenues 9 and 12, as well as along the upcoming North Coast Innovation Corridor that will run from Woodlands to Punggol.
Gateway to Malaysia – The recent announcement of the planned RTS (Rapid Transit System) between Woodlands and Johor Bahru, to complement the existing causeway and Shuttle Tebrau, is certain to cement Woodlands as the gateway to JB and beyond.
The perfect time – Woodlands as a place is booming. The population has increased by more than 30 percent in 15 years, and that trend is set to continue. In a similar period, resale prices for non-landed private residential properties have appreciated by 92 percent. Demand is particularly high in regional centres and for developments near MRT stations. This is a perfect opportunity to buy while you still can, and before the infrastructure is completed and prices inevitably rise.
