Police Security Command in Toa Payoh to be demolished for housing


SINGAPORE – The Police Security Command premises in 2 Lorong 4 Toa Payoh is set to make way for housing and move to another location within the neighbourhood.

The command, which has been there since 2004, sits on land that has been zoned for housing – subject to detailed planning – since 2003.

In a proposed amendment to the Urban Redevelopment Authority’s (URA) masterplan published on Oct 21, the 1.7ha plot – equivalent to over two football fields in size – was assigned a plot ratio of 4.2.

Property analysts said the plot can yield more than 700 units, with ERA Realty head of research and consultancy Nicholas Mak estimating that between 750 and 880 units can be built.

Meanwhile, OrangeTee and Tie senior vice-president of research and analytics Christine Sun said the site could be used for either public or private residences, given its proximity to both housing types.

Both analysts highlighted that the site is near amenities, with Braddell MRT station a 350m walk away, and coffee shops as well as a wet market and hawker centre within 200m of the site.
