Hillock Green Condo Lentor Central Developments Based on URA Master Plan
The Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) of Singapore, through its Master Plan, outlines the strategic development trajectory for various regions across the city-state. Hillock Green Condo located at Lentor Central, have been earmarked for exciting transformations in the coming years.
The primary objective of the URA Master Plan for Hillock Green at Yio Chu Kang is to enhance the liveability and vibrancy of these residential precincts while preserving their distinctive character. Both these precincts are set to benefit from improved connectivity, additional housing options, upgraded amenities, and green spaces, all planned to offer residents an improved quality of life.
One significant aspect of the Master Plan is the improvement of transport infrastructure at Hillock Green Lentor Central. With the completion of the Thomson-East Coast MRT Line, Hillock Green will have its own MRT station, enhancing its connectivity to the city centre and other parts of Singapore. Similarly, the planned North-South Corridor, an expressway designed to reduce travel time to the city, will have dedicated bus lanes and cycling routes, improving Lentor and Yio Chu Kang’s accessibility and promoting greener commuting options.
In terms of housing, the URA plans to introduce new residential sites in Hillock Green to provide more housing options for future residents. These developments will be planned with convenience and accessibility in mind, ensuring that amenities are within easy reach. Furthermore, these new housing precincts will be designed with an emphasis on community interaction to foster stronger neighbourhood ties at Hillock Green.
To cater to the commercial needs of the growing population around Hillock Green, new commercial hubs will be developed. Lentor Hills, for instance, is slated to become a vibrant mixed-use development comprising residential units, retail shops, food and beverage outlets, and a supermarket. Such developments will bring jobs and amenities closer to residents, reducing the need for long-distance travel.
The Master Plan also includes provisions for enhancing existing amenities around Hillock Green. For instance, the Yio Chu Kang stadium is set to be upgraded, providing enhanced sporting facilities for residents. The surrounding areas will be developed into a sports and community hub, featuring an integrated community and lifestyle hub, hawker centre, and community club.
Environment sustainability is a key focus of the URA Master Plan. Efforts will be made to increase green spaces within these residential precincts. New parks and park connectors will be developed, and existing ones will be enhanced. These green spaces will not only improve the local biodiversity but also provide residents with more opportunities for recreational activities.
One notable green initiative is the transformation of the former Seletar West Farmway into a community farming hub, where Hillock Green residents can lease farming plots and engage in farming-related activities. This initiative aims to foster community bonding and promote a sustainable lifestyle.
Lastly, the URA Master Plan seeks to preserve the rich heritage of these areas. Hillock Green, for instance, was once home to pepper and gambier plantations, while Yio Chu Kang was known for its poultry farms. Efforts will be made to commemorate these historical narratives, ensuring that the area’s history continues to be a part of its vibrant future.
In conclusion, the URA Master Plan for Hillock Green by Yanlord Land Group foresees a future where these precincts become even more vibrant and liveable. With improved connectivity, diverse housing options, upgraded amenities, enhanced green spaces, and a nod to their rich heritage, Hillock Green are set to offer their residents an enhanced quality of life while retaining their distinctive character.
