About 9,000 housing units – both public and private – will be built on the site of Keppel Golf Club as part of the future Greater Southern Waterfront, said Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.
In sketching out what the Greater Southern Waterfront (GSW) will look like, Mr Lee said the entire area will be double the size of Punggol town.
“Think of it as Punggol by the Bay!” he quipped.
First announced in 2013, the GSW comprises 30km of coastline stretching from the Gardens by the Bay East area to Pasir Panjang.
It contains 2,000ha of land – six times the size of Marina Bay and twice the size of Punggol.
Mr Lee noted that prime land will be freed up for redevelopment after PSA moves its city terminals in Tanjong Pagar, Keppel and Pulau Brani to Tuas by 2027, as well as Pasir Panjang terminal by 2040.
