Grow with Jurong Lake District Rejuvenation – Sora Condo

The largest mixed-use business district outside the Singapore Central Business District (CBD) is undergoing transformation as part of the URA Master Plan. Spanning 410 hectares in the Jurong Region, this development will unfold over the next 10-15 years. It will be a focal point of government planning for the next two decades. It will introduce new offices, retail spaces, F&B outlets, hotels, homes, and numerous employment opportunities.

To enhance connectivity and accommodate increased traffic, two new MRT lines will be integrated into the Jurong Lake District. These lines are namely the Jurong Region Line and the Cross-Island Line, scheduled for completion by 2029 and 2032, respectively.

The area benefits from its proximity to numerous multinational companies situated nearby. They are International Business Park, One North Business Park and Jurong and Tuas Industrial Estates in the West region.


Jurong Lake Gardens

The new condo residents of Sora will enjoy easy access to the public garden facilities suitable for all age groups. As rejuvenation plans for Jurong Lake Gardens progress, connecting links will be constructed to various points of interest. It includes Singapore’s renowned landmarks such as the Japanese Garden, Chinese Garden, Garden Promenade, and Science Centre Singapore.

The Chinese Garden and Japanese Garden are set to undergo redevelopment and will be ready by 2024. Additionally, the new world-class Science Centre, Singapore’s largest living lab, is scheduled to open its doors in 2027, showcasing the latest applications of science and technology and providing a unique space for learning and immersive experiences.

These signature attractions are all situated within the captivating Jurong Lake Gardens, Singapore’s third national garden and the only one located within a heartland neighborhood.


Jurong Gateway

Designated as a new primarily zone white site, Jurong Gateway offers developers the flexibility to innovate and integrate the Live, Work, and Play concept. This area is envisioned to be more than just a business hub; it will serve as a gateway for various purposes. With larger sites available, developers can conceptualize integrated campuses tailored to meet diverse business needs.

In adherence to regulations requiring new buildings in the Jurong Lake District to compensate for ‘lost’ landscaping during transformation, green spaces are recreated through sky terraces, roof gardens, and vertical greenery. Podiums at different levels of the buildings feature trees and shrubs, while seamless connections between rooftop gardens and various buildings provide additional communal green space above street level.

Enhanced connectivity is also evident in the underground pedestrian links, offering sheltered pathways for commuters to access both the existing Jurong East MRT Station and the future Jurong Lake District MRT Station.


Jurong Innovation District

Situated in Jurong, the Jurong Innovation District is an advanced manufacturing hub where innovative methodologies and technologies will be studied and developed. Supported by the expertise of the well-connected Nanyang Technological University (NTU). It provides access to a talent pool for research and academic endeavors in nearby tertiary institutions such as the National University of Singapore, One-North Business Hub, and Science Parks.


High-Speed Rail (HSR)

Despite the cancellation of the highly anticipated project a few years ago, discussions are still ongoing in Malaysia to revive the High-Speed Rail. Initially requested for postponement in 2018 and subsequently terminated in 2021 due to high cost concerns, Malaysia, particularly Kuala Lumpur, is now actively seeking proposals from private companies locally and internationally.

Government funding is crucial for such a large-scale project, spanning approximately 350km across four states in Malaysia and 15km in Singapore. Given the significant investment required, government support is necessary to ensure the project’s viability.

The estimated cost to revive the project is around S$28 billion, making it challenging for private companies to finance independently. Additional government support, such as land acquisition and long-term maintenance of the rail network, will also be essential. Despite Singapore’s openness to new proposals to revive the project, its finalization is expected to take some time.

The High-Speed Rail (HSR) is expected to bring substantial benefits to citizens in both Malaysia and Singapore, offering a faster and more efficient travel option between the two countries. Furthermore, it is anticipated to attract more businesses and tourists, contributing to economic growth and development in the region.
