Kallang and Paya Lebar the next hotspots

Posted by jtsmyth8 on May 23, 2008

Good news, Kallang and Paya Lebar: It is your turn to shine.

The two sleepy industrial estates have been identified as Singapore’s next big urban hotspots, as the nation’s land planners draw up blueprints for the next 15 years.

Now colourless and underdeveloped, these towns will burst into full bloom over the next decade. Paya Lebar will be transformed into a thriving commercial and civic centre, while Kallang will become a residential and lifestyle hub with homes and offices set among green parks and sandy beaches.

They are the stars of the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) highly anticipated Draft Master Plan, which was released by National Development Minister Mah Bow Tan on Friday. (story)
