You can reach Singapore Changi Airport in 14 minutes, while the Central Business District (CBD) in 20 minutes.

Tampines is known for its wide array of amenities, which is one of the main reasons why it is a popular town. Home to a retail park comprising three mega warehouse retail stores (Ikea, Courts and Giant Supermarket), three shopping malls (Tampines Mall, Century Square and Tampines 1) and an integrated community and lifestyle hub (Our Tampines Hub), you’ll never run out of places to go with the family.

3. Schools and Healthcare

Waterview is not just ideal for leisure and accessibility. Parents will be delighted to know that the property is surrounded by a wide range of top-tier schools. Choose from primary to tertiary schools like St. Hilda’s Primary School, Temasek Polytechnic, and Singapore University of Technology and Design. Expats: don’t fret. You’ll find United World College South East Asia within close proximity too.

Need healthcare assistance? You’ve got nothing to worry about! The nearest healthcare institutions are SingHealth Polyclinics Tampines and Changi General Hospital, both within a 3.5km radius (eight-minute drive).

4. Property Price and Future Developments

January to December 2017 – up to $865,000
January to December 2018 – up to $1,218,000
