Singapore’s Master Plan is widely known for guiding the development of every plot of land in the country, ensuring that our urban growth takes place in a systematic and progressive manner. 

But more than that, the many changes outlined in the Master Plan could mean good news for local homeowners, both current and aspiring. By optimising Singapore’s limited space, the Master Plan aims to tackle foreseeable urban challenges, while also meeting the future land-use needs of generations to come.

Though likely unintended as a positive outcome, the upwards movement of private property prices in designated growth areas can too be associated with Singapore’s Master Plan.

Take for example, the Jurong Lake District which is expected to become Singapore’s second Central Business District (CBD), and more. 

Apart from a commercial hub at Jurong Gateway, the area will also see the development of a leisure and recreational area at Lakeside, effectively transforming it into the biggest regional centre outside of the CBD.

As a result, these Master Plan announcements can be thought to have a positive growth effect on the value of private properties in nearby areas over the course of the near to mid-future.

Developments around Jurong that have certainly benefitted due to the Master Plan include The Mayfair, Parc Oasis, Ivory Heights, and J Gateway – all of which saw psf price growths ranging from $440 psf to as much as $750 psf over the past two decades. 

Based on this observation, buyers of upcoming new launches will surely want to take note of the respective urban plans and private residential opportunities coming to their desired area(s):

Finally, for the Central and Southern regions of Singapore, the Master Plan will see even more new changes to the downtown area, which already is a dynamic and liveable city centre, as well as the Greater Southern Waterfront, a residential and business district twice the size of Punggol. 

New launches coming to both of these regions include private residential developments at the former Central Mall, GLS site at Marina Gardens Lane, Keppel Bay Plot 6, Marina View Residences, Skywaters Residences, Newport Residences, The Residences at W on Singapore’s Sentosa Cove, The Hillshore, and The Hill @ One North.
