These 3 areas are part of the government’s plans to rejuvenate the land here into what was previously announced as the Greater Southern Waterfront.
Waterfront city linking Sentosa Island, Pulau Brani and Tanjong Pagar
With the relocation of the port terminal from Tanjong Pagar to Tuas, about 1,000 hectares of land will be freed up for a new waterfront city. It could potentially be exciting times ahead for the district as renewed activity in the area increases the popularity of properties both residential and commercial in its vicinity.
There are plans for the precinct to be developed into an area with more facilities for activities related to MICE (meetings, incentives, conferences and exhibitions). There will be a particular focus on developing Sentosa to include more leisure activities and allow for better infrastructure and accessibility.
Mr Chee Hong Tat, Senior Minister of State for Trade and Industry has mentioned that he is “keen to explore and push ahead how we can encourage more activities at night on Sentosa”. The growing cruise industry could also help drive the development of Sentosa and together with hotels and facilities catered to MICE, bring in more investment monies.
Residential properties on and around Sentosa could also receive a boost from such developments.
Southern Gateway of Asia will help integrate Sentosa into mainland
The integration of Sentosa into a larger precinct which will include also the waterfront area of Tanjong Pagar, may bring forth more possibilities for commercial and entertainment facilities as well as extend the scope of accessibility to the population on the mainland closer to these areas such as Mount Faber, Telok Blangah and Harbourfront district.
Further details will be fleshed out in the next 6 to 9 months.
