Government Land Sales

SINGAPORE – The Jurong Regional Library will be relocated as part of the next phase of development for Jurong Lake District, which will focus on the area south of Jurong East MRT station.

According to a proposed amendment to the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) master plan published on Oct 14, the library is set to be replaced by a residential development with shops on its first storey.

The proposed changes – which also include new development plots south of Jurong Town Hall Road and a new road network in the Science Centre area – will affect three other developments, a URA spokesman told The Straits Times.

OrangeTee and Tie senior vice-president of research and analytics Christine Sun said the demand for housing in Jurong is strong among owner-occupiers and investors, who wish to benefit from the area’s “regional hub” status. The area is quite popular with tenants who work in the west, which will draw demand from investors hoping to earn rental income, she added.
