Punggol

A quiet residential neighbourhood in the northeastern part of the island, Punggol was once known as an area inhabited with poultry, pig and fish farms along with rubber plantations before new urban developments turned it into public housing areas, where young couples are settling down as shopping malls have sprung up to serve residential needs, as well as better public transportation for commuting.

 

The renowned Punggol Beach and Punggol Point (a national heritage site) attracts tourists and locals yearning for a quiet time on a clean beach. It is popular among the youths who indulge in challenging water sports such as boating and wakeboarding.

 

Currently, Punggol has evolved into a new waterfront estate containing HDB flats, private condominiums and houses where the first batch of smart HDB flats, Northshore Residences I and II at Punggol Northshore will be embedded with smart technologies to study the environment, to aid in making better ecological management decisions.

Sengkang

The Sengkang area was once a fishing port that flourished with vegetable and pig farms as well as pepper and rubber plantations before the Sengkang New Town was built. In Chinese, the name Sengkang translates to “prosperous harbour” and The Sengkang New Town is also HDB’s satellite residential town.

Currently, the area contains HDB apartments, private condominiums and houses where residents along Sungei Serangoon and Sungei Punggol are able to enjoy a stunning sea view and water sport activities around the waterway.

Although Sengkang HDB flats are known to be smaller than other HDB developments, the area is brimming with social amenities like schools, shopping malls, public library, medical and community centres.

A glamorous town scattered with landed properties and condominiums, Serangoon Garden transforms into a night hub of entertainment and food for those active at night searching for restaurants, pubs and karaoke bars.

Established in the 1950s, Serangoon Garden served the British military as a lodging estate and this is why most roads here have British-influenced names. Today, it is an upscale residential estate supported by facilities and amenities boasting of a vibrant nightlife along Serangoon Garden Way and Maju Avenue.
