Pearl’s Hill getting 6,000 new homes, inclusive of brand new HDB flats
Aside from Pearl’s Hill, the former Bukit-Timah Turf City will also be carless and benefit from two MRT Stations nearby. Master Plan, 1998, has safeguarded the land for future residential growth. Detailed plans are currently being studied for both public and privately owned housing.
Mount Pleasant, too, will see the development of 33 ha of public housing over the coming 10 years. The first BTO Project in the region is expected in 2025.
The new estate is expected to include a “rich tapestry heritage in the region”, with some heritage buildings of Old Police Academy being preserved, integrated and adapted into new uses.
Marina South is a new neighbourhood that will feature a mixture of residential, commercial, office and hotels developments.
Marina Gardens Lane (and Marina Gardens Crescent) are two of the sale sites currently available. These could potentially offer more than 1,500 houses in the area.

URA stated that the Greater Southern Waterfront is the site where the first parcel of land will be released in the coming five years. The former Keppel site will house 9,000 homes, including 6,000 HDB units . Future housing estates near 10ha of green recreational space will be well connected with Telok Blangah & Labrador Park MRT Stations.
Singapore’s Central Region will see more housing being built. In Pearl’s Hill alone, 6,000 new flats and new HDB homes are planned to be constructed over the course of 10 years. This marks the introduction of new public housing for the first 40 years.
Prime flats can be defined as those in the best-chosen locations within the HDB Build-toOrder (BTO), Standard, plus and Prime categories. Plus and Premier flats come with strict restrictions like a 10-year occupation period.
Pearl’s Hill, a “neighbourhood centered on inclusion and community”, is set to be developed. It will have a mix public housing, BTO and rental flats.
URA plans to provide condominiums, serviced apartments for private homes to suit the various needs and tastes of residents. The Outram Park MRT will be connected to four MRT line via a proposed mixed use development.
Pearl’s Hill district will be declared a no-car zone, with a support network for active mobility, which promotes walking and cycling. The former Police Barracks will be used as a Community Node, which offers adaptive reuse in a new mix lifestyle offerings.
URA has said that its concept plans will take into account existing heritage and natural greenery. Selected clusters and former racecourses will be preserved and repurposed for a unique identity and sense of place.
Lee Sze Teck – Senior Director, Data Analytics, Huttons Asia – said, “These apartments are almost 100% going to qualify as Prime flats because of the location.”
Lee pointed out Pearl’s Hill as being the highest point and that the flats in this area will have unobstructed views towards the southern sea and city. He added that the residents of Pearl’s Hill would have easy access the Outram MRT station, which will allow them to travel easily to other parts of the island.
