Boon Lay

Named after Chew Boon Lay, a famous landowner in the late 19th century, Boon Lay district was inundated with his rubber plantations when it was just a wasted swampy jungle. Later, with its first factory, the National Iron and Steel Mills, it turned into Singapore’s first industrial estate.

There are many factories in this area and some old factories are under plans for redevelopment for transformation to modern high-density factories. The world’s largest chocolate company, Barry Callebaut, can be found here.

Currently, the latest HDB offerings are Boon Lay Meadow where a total of 705 flat units are up for grabs, whilst more residential projects are being planned in this area. However, a super industrial development located at Sunview Road, Eco-Tech @Sunview would be constructed to fill in the demands of business entities waiting to invest in this area. A 9-storey building with 424 individual units and a spacious canteen, Eco-Tech @Sunview is a good mixture of retail, office, hotel, entertainment and F&B.

Conveniently connected with Pioneer, Lakeside and Boon Lay MRT Stations, with Singapore’s reliable bus service, getting around Boon Lay should be easy.

 

Tuas

Tuas is an area completely dedicated to heavy industries where heavy machineries and equipment is manufactured, as well as the production of chemicals and electronics. Located at Singapore’s west side, workers have to commute to and from this area in order to go home.

On the bright side, public transportation is convenient with feeder bus services ferrying workers every day from Tuas to nearby MRT Stations in Boon Lay, Chinese Gardens and Jurong East.

There are only a few designated industrial parks here such as the Tuas Biotechnology Parks with factories housing many Multi-National Corporations (MNCs), Singapore Tin Industries and Tuas Incineration Plant.

Incidentally, Tuas have the largest and most significant recreational club located on its coast - Raffles Country Club that has a large golf course. Tuas is also the country’s gateway to Malaysia via the Tuas 2nd link, a connecting bridge that makes road travel to Malaysia more convenient.
