The very first executive condominium (EC) site on Tengah (also known as the Forest Town) was recently accorded to Taurus Properties SG. Singapore’s Housing Development Board (HDB) broke the news of the record-breaking land rate on June 3 2021, where the 99-year leasehold site was awarded for $400,318,000 or $603 per square foot per plot ratio (psf prr) — the highest figure for an EC site under the government land sales (GLS) programme. The previous record has been held for over four years by Sumang Walk EC site in Punggol, where the land lease was handed over to the tune of $583 psf prr.
Situated within Tengah Garden Walk, the land site area of 22,020 sq m will yield a maximum gross floor area of 61,659 sq m and accommodate 12 blocks of units that can be built up to a maximum of 14 storeys. Together with MCL Land, Taurus Properties SG has stated that it would be developing approximately 620 units.
Taking ‘clean and green’ city living to the next level
Dubbed as the “Evergreen Forest Town” of Singapore, the upcoming EC in Tengah is expected to pioneer nature-themed metropolis living where residents are brought closer to nature than ever. The development of Tengah will be guided by the Smart HDB Town Framework, introduced in 2014. It covers 4 key dimensions: Smart Planning; Smart Environment; Smart Estate; Smart Living. These features will allow residents to benefit from more efficient services while also making environmentally-friendly living easier with smart energy management, smart lighting, automated waste collection and smart homes that are all integrated seamlessly into the town’s green theme.
Residential towers are expected to be situated in the thicket of lush greenery, with facilities and walkways weaved in between to allow Tengah’s dwellers to explore, enjoy, and promote quality green living through their day to day activities.
Green facilities such as electric vehicle charging hubs, which also double as mobility tools, will also be made available to help new residents grow accustomed to and transition into lifestyles with lower carbon footprints.
The surroundings will also feature generous landscaping with specific flora and fauna handpicked and carefully nurtured to promote a healthy and relaxing air quality. Also part of the Evergreen Forest Town blueprint, are green features and amenities aimed at the younger population, promoting a richer sense of community and better relationships amongst neighbours.
Prime location for unparalleled transportation and connectivity
Nestled in the heart of Tengah Town, Tengah EC will be just a stone’s throw away from multiple facilities and amenities such as a sports hub and medical facilities, allowing residents to maintain a healthy lifestyle and seek medical treatment on-demand.
Tengah EC is also strategically located near three upcoming MRT stations of Choa Chu Kang MRT, Tengah MRT and Tengah Plantation MRT along the future Jurong Region Line (JRL), which will connect residents to the north-western and western parts of Singapore.
As part of the car-lite blueprint initiative, a web of walking and cycling paths will be embedded in the neighbourhood, connecting residents to the rest of Tengah Town. Recreational and commercial spaces within Tengah Town Centre will be placed within walking proximity of Tengah MRT station and the residences so that other residents in the area are not short changed when it comes to convenience.
Drivers do not have to fret, either. Plenty of highways such as Kranji Expressway (KJE), Pan-Island Expressway (PIE) as well as Brickland Road and Bukit Batok Road will help redirect traffic smoothly out of the Western region of Singapore.
Finally, a bus terminal featuring an entire fleet of services that can take residents to virtually any part of Singapore, including Woodlands, Yishun and the nearby Bukit Batok Bus Interchange will be near Tengah EC as well to incentivize car driving residents to take the bus for a lifestyle that is gentler on the environment.
