A 2.75ha white site in Woodlands Regional Centre has been released for sale by the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) under the reserve list of the Government Land Sales programme for the second half of 2018.
The mixed-use site has a maximum permissible gross floor area (GFA) of 115,747 sqm with at least 45,000 sqm of this to be set aside for office use. The remaining GFA can be for additional office, retail, entertainment and residential uses, with a maximum GFA of 33,000 sqm for commercial use, excluding office and commercial school uses. Apart from any GFA for residential flats, the rest of the GFA is to be contained in no more than eight strata lots.
Located in Woodlands Avenue 2 above the upcoming Woodlands Thomson-East Coast Line station, the site will be directly connected to both that line and the existing North-South line. This is the first white site in the 100ha Woodlands Regional Centre area, which will be developed into a commercial hub over the next 15 years. It comprises commercial and community precinct Woodlands Central and mixed-use business cluster Woodlands North Coast. When fully developed, Woodlands Regional Centre is expected to have 700,000 sqm of commercial space and offer 100,000 new jobs.
