The best of the west is about to unfold!

You might have heard about the booming changes west of Singapore. But do you know how it would benefit you as a homeowner or as an HDB buyer?

Nestled among Lakeside, Boon Lay and Pioneer MRT stations, Jurong West is prime for economic growth. The Government is expected develop the Jurong Innovation District (JID) located close to NTU to support the growth of learning, research, innovation and production industries. All these is expected to be completed by around 2022. JID is envisioned as the industrial park of the future of innovation for enterprise, learning and living.

2. Jurong Lake District

Jurong Lake District (JLD) is labelled as a new gateway for Singapore by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA). It is set to become the largest commercial and regional centre outside Singapore’s city centre. The High-Speed Rail to Kuala Lumpur will open new markets and opportunities in a metropolitan region of more than 10 million people. JLD is envisioned to be Singapore’s first national gardens in the heartlands, where the 90-hectare gardens will be a people’s garden for leisure and recreation.

3. Wenya Industrial Estate

Besides existing industrial estates, residents can find employment opportunities with the upcoming Wenya Industrial Estate where Google’s first data centre in Southeast Asia will be housed. Google had acquired 2.45 hectares of land in Jurong West, this will serve users across the region. This data centre is one of the most efficient and environmentally friendly in Asia – its cooling system will rely on recycled water, and it was built to the same high standard we use around the world, with each element custom designed to operate at optimal efficiency.
This industrial estate will progressively develop into several sites for small and medium-sized enterprises, as well as multinational corporations. With the booming start-up industry in Jurong West, it will spur demand for people buying a HDB and commercial spaces rental within the area.
