Citing the potential of this place, a grand project costing $3.2 billion is on the way to make dramatic changes near the Paya Lebar MRT Station. This project aims at making retail shops, three office towers and private housing which will have three blocks.

 

These changes are definitely going to change the look of the place.

Two tenants for the same have already been announced. Over 22,000 sq ft will be occupied by super mart NTUC FairPrice Finest and 15,000 sq ft space by Food Court Kopitiam.

 

It is expected that the retail & office space will be complete in second half of 2018. Whereas the residential blocks named as ‘Park Place residences’, comprising of 429 units of 1 to 3 BHK apartments will get completed within the 2019 half year. This block will comprise of 17 storey buildings out of which 4 floors are reserved for car park. Leading to the developer’s first project on residency. According to him the apartments will be on sale from the coming year without any hassle. This residency will be marketing the apartments more to the natives.
