Foodies have been beating a path to Jalan Kayu in such numbers that the area has been designated an “identity node”.
The coveted label marks it as a place with “strong character and distinctive identity” under a scheme launched in 2002.
Jalan Kayu, Holland Village and Serangoon Gardens are the latest to be added to the list, which now numbers 18, including Balestier and Siglap Village.
The Urban Redevelopment Authority said that it intends to improve access and visitor experience to the historical street.
Once a quiet access route leading to the Royal Air Force base in Seletar, the Jalan Kayu area is now being developed into the Seletar Aerospace Park.
