Bishan-size town will be integrated with nature as well as Jurong Innovation District

A town as big as Bishan will be built in Tengah.

MND Minister Lawrence Wong: Surrounded by greenery, Tengah will be planned as a “Forest Town“.

The Forest Town will be integrated with nature as well as the nearby Jurong Innovation District.

Plans to develop Tengah, a 700ha site which is bounded by the Kranji and Pan-Island expressways, Brickland Road and Bukit Batok Road, were mooted as early as 1991 in a concept plan for Singapore in the future.

The plan now is to integrate a new “industrial park of the future” which Finance Minister Heng Swee Keat unveiled in his Budget statement last month.

The Jurong Innovation District – whose first phase will be ready around 2022 – will bring together researchers, students, innovators and businesses to develop products and services for the future.

“Tengah will be a very exciting place to live, work and play,” Mr Wong said.

When ready, the town bordering Choa Chu Kang, Bukit Batok and Jurong West towns is expected to have about 55,000 homes.

Mr Wong also outlined plans for Singapore’s urban development in the next 10 to 20 years.

These include a second central business district at Jurong Lake, a new creative cluster in Punggol and a new waterfront Northern Growth corridor in Woodlands and Sembawang.

New and innovative infrastructure, from driverless cars to smart power grids, will also be studied by the Committee on the Future Economy, in which Mr Wong chairs a sub-committee on the Future City.

Was going thru Stephen's video when I noticed he had a google review panel up. Going to copy paste my review on his FB page from 2019. I still stand by my review. Stephen was very professional throughout our engagement process. I first engaged Stephen as his effort could be seen thru the videos he made. The videos were informative, detailed, yet easy to understand from a beginners point of view. Could also see the improvement of his videos as time passes, and that speaks volumes about one's character on his eagerness to improve and share. During my engagement with him, Stephen was very professional. Since I was very new in the scene, I required alot of guidance and honesty. Stephen was very upfront with me on many items and did not try to hide any facts from me. As a first time buyer, both good and bad prospects were laid out after his detailed analysis on my current financial condition and also on the projects we went to see. Comparing to other agents who will just blab anything that benefits their sales point, Stephen was straightforward and truthful on the issue. I have met quite a few agents but would highly recommend Stephen to people who are looking for properties, be it looking for a place to stay, or looking for a property to invest.

Stephen handled both my HDB sale and new condo purchase. The whole process was fuss-free and smooth. What impressed me was his willingness to go the extra mile for his client, from analyzing every detail and being there for me and my wife every step of the selling/buying process.

We came across Stephen YouTube video and appreciated the tips he is providing. We decided to engage Stephen when we were house hunting. Most people may feel that you can DIY resale hdb buying process. Personally we feel its money well spent engaging Stephen. The whole buying process is swift. Stephen is very prompt in his reply. He did alot of detailed analysis and recommend us the units we can explore. He is very detailed anf meticulous. This process saved alot of time. He also gave us helpful advice on the units we viewed. No hard selling or rush you into hasty decisions 😊

Knowledgeable and professional, Stephen is not the typical agent you will meet. Ever so patient, he will help provide his genuine feedback and never pushy unlike most sales agents. Fortunate to have Stephen walk with me in my property investment journey. Will recommend Stephen to anyone who is looking for a trustworthy agent to walk the mile with.

I believe every property investors or home buyers have encounters with numerous property agents. However, how many of you ever met someone with passion and enthusiasm to sit down and analyze each property based on your criteria (budget, requirements like location, size, etc)? Having watched Stephen's videos in YouTube, decided to ping him and the rest is unspoken of. Not only did he helped to narrow down our search, he also analyzed which project has higher prospect and which unit (level, facing, etc) fits our living habits. No complaints, except for not knowing Stephen earlier. Good job Stephen, thank you.

Stephen was the agent assisting us in the purchase of our condo and now to market them for rental. He is extremely helpful, open, transparent and reliable throughout the entire time. He went above and beyond to help us set things up while we are not in Singapore.He is also very professional and knowledgeable about the property market in general. I am confident to leave our condo in his care to find us a good tenant and to manage them in future.
