The Remaking of Our Heartland (ROH) was started in 2007. The project was initiated to rejuvenate the HDB towns and estates. The aim is to make the HDB areas a better place for the residents.
The first 3 towns that were developed under the ROH included Punggol, Yishun and Dawson. Later, three more towns namely East Coast, Hougang and Jurong were also developed. The development efforts for these towns have come way ahead. The progress is quite evident as the towns are now a symbol of serene living for the people.
Developing Pasir Ris
After the successful efforts in the previous 6 towns, the ROH continues the efforts for other towns as well. The latest towns to undergo development efforts include Pasir Ris, Toa Payoh and Woodlands. The ROH plans to apply similar standards of development that have been used in the previous towns. In this post, we will be focusing on the ROH plans for Pasir Ris.
The Town of Pasir Ris
Pasir Ris stands for White Sands in Malay. The town is basically a long stretch of white sandy beach situated along the north-east coastline of Singapore. In the time past, Pasir Ris used to be a major focus of vacation time. It was a popular destination for both locals and foreigners to space the chaos of life and enjoy a few days of relaxation and luxury. The town featured large holiday bungalows and public seaside resorts that were accommodating the traffic of domestic and international tourists.
After the development, ROH plans to make Pasir Ris the dream seaside town. The town will be supported by amazing commercial and residential amenities to provide the residents with a convenient lifestyle.
The New Pasir Ris
The following developments will take place according to ROH plans for Pasir Ris:
Distinct Housing Design
The new town will be featuring modern day architecture that will stand apart due to its unique style. ROH aims for the residents to have an aesthetic connection with the place they live in. The four existing neighborhoods, namely the Loyang Point, Elias Mall, Neighborhood 4NC and Pasir Ris West Plaza, will developed to add more parks, playgrounds, fitness corners and linkways.
Multiple Recreational Options
Both outdoor and indoor recreational facilities will be developed to cater to varying needs of the residents. The White Sands mall will be accompanied by a new development; a combination of residential, retail, food and beverage outlets.
Whether they are commercial or residential facilities, the town plan has been designed to feature a better connectivity. An integrated bus interchange will provide better accessibility across the Pasir Ris.
Surrounded by Nature
ROH plans to make the new Pasir Ris feature ample amounts of greenery and nature. Given that Pasir Ris is already a seaside town, this feature has been given significant priority. A greenway will stretch a 1.2km, starting from Pasir Ris, crossing through the town center and concluding near the Tampines Expressway. The new Town Plaza will also feature a Heritage Garden.
The new Pasir Ris plans have been developed after the suggestions put forward by the residents. It will appeal to the need of having a town rich in amenities and nature.
