One of the latest offerings, Thomson Impressions, is situated in between Bishan and Thomson on Sin Ming Avenue and boasts a proximity to many good schools such as Ai Tong, CHIJ St. Nicholas, Catholic Primary and High School and Raffles Instituition. It will feature a myriad of property types, including single-storey penthouses. The area is booming and a number of hip new eateries have entered its fold. It has its own heartland malls, Thomson Plaza and Junction 8, and is also fairly close to the city centre, with buses and train stations nearby. By car, it takes about 15 minutes to get to town.
Besides all the necessary amenities and transport options, District 20 is also known for its abundance of greenery and parks. The Upper and lower pierce reservoir, MacRitchie reservoir, Bishan-Ang Mo Kio Park and Singapore Island Country Club are all in close by.
Set to achieve its temporary occupation permit (TOP) by 2019, it will coincide with the projected opening of the Thomson-East Coast line.
